Removal and Cleaning
Removal of the Balancing Spool
Caution: Always turn your water supplies off before disassembling your faucet. With the supplies turned off, move your faucet’s handle to the “on” position to relieve pressure.
- When the valve body is exposed, there will be a large slot to the right or above the center. Unscrew this using a large flathead screwdriver.
Cleaning the Balancing Spool
- A soft brush can be used to clean the valve body. Be sure the chamber is clean and dry.
- Clean the outside balancing spool. Be sure all mineral buildup and debris are removed
- Inside of the balancing spool is a small cylinder that needs to be able to move freely. This can be accomplished by cleaning through the holes located around the outside. Gently tap the balancing spool on a concrete surface can dislodge the small cylinder. Once moving freely, you will hear a clicking sound when you shake the balancing spool.
You are all done!
