Price Pfister hot water runs slow
Check the supply line and valve to see if any dirt or foreign.matter got into the line or valve when you changed out your faucet. if this is not the problem you may have a faulty faucet. You may be able to back flush the faucet with a garden hose by leaving the hot side open, but you will get wet. If you used Teflon tape on the supply line and it is a compression fitting, some of the tape could be blocking the water. for more info go to waterheaterflush.com

No water coming out of my filter faucet.
Here is what I would suspect at this point:
- Incorrect air pressure in tank, or
- Clogged filters
To check air pressure:
Empty tank and check pressure -- it should be 7 PSI.
Note: There is a rubber bladder in the tank in which the water is stored -- if this bladder is ruptured, the air pressure in the tank will not hold.
So, adjust air pressure, try system again. If it works for a while and then stops, empty tank and check air pressure for 7 PSI.
If the system doesn't work when tank pressure is adjusted, empty tank and check pressure again. If pressure is still 7 PSI, then replace filters.
If tank pressure is not 7 PSI at this juncture, it's probably a ruptured bladder and the tank will have to be replaced. But before you take that tack we should "talk" again.
Please let me know the results...
P.S. I'm assuming you have adequate water pressure on your household system. You're not noticing a drop in pressure anywhere else in the house -- is that correct?

Handle on faucet shuts off on its own
I had the same problem. The Price Pfister web site recommends removing the handle (unscrew the dome cap, then remove the phillips screw to get the handle off) then tightening the retaining ring (I used channel lock pliers on largest setting. It worked. However the retaining ring is plastic on some models, and they recommend replacing it with a brass one. I haven't taken that step yet, we'll see how it goes (mine is plastic).

Faucet will not swivel
if your faucet is new....the spout was put together wrong and it needs to be removed and re-attached correctly...(friction washer/ring in wrong position).....if not new....spray some penetrating oil on the connection that is supposed to swivel....make sure the surface is dry and try to avoid overspray. let it sit for 15 min...then spray it again...and again let it sit ....after sitting for a few minutes.....gently try to move the spout side to side...if no change...repeat the first processs...and continue to repeat until it becomes moveable....once moveable....detach the spout.....dry out and remove any foreign matter from the connection side on the faucet...then apply a small amount of faucet grease to the connection threads and the inside barrel....a thin even coat ...excess grease will clog your aerator...don't use too much....now repeat the cleaning and lubricating process on the removed spout connector....reassemble.....remove aerator....turn on the water and flush....replace the aerator....turn water on full blast....check for leaks and for swing...it should swivel now ....if not...loosen the connection nut a tad and try again....if still no swing....you are missing a friction ring somewhere in the connection and it needs to be replaced before you will be able to swing the spout.....good luck...
