I can't figure out how to remove the kitchen faucet end sprayer from under
the sink? It doesn't have wrench flats and it doesn't seem to just pull
Do I need to pull with more force or is there some trick to disconnecting
the faucet end sprayer hose from the faucet so I can remove the faucet from
It's a one-piece faucet with an end sprayer on a long spiral hose. On a tag
on the bottom it says "Price Pfister model 53270SS mfg date 8-2-2007".
Here's what I did so far.
a) I shut the hot water and removed that hose from the faucet bottom
b) I shut hte cold water and removed that hose from the faucet bottom
c) I unscrewed the two bolts on the ring and unscrewed the ring
All I need to do is disconnect the end-sprayer loop with the heavy weight
for the long metal spiral hose; but I do not know how it disconnects!
Can you provide a hint?
if you're replacing the faucet, you could just cut the hose. I'm not
sure how PP attaches their hoses to the faucet end but pretty much
everyone uses the same attachment at the sprayer end, unscrew the ring
from the hose end from the sprayer, there should be a wire C-clip on
there, pop the C-clip off with a small screwdriver and pull it apart.
so if you don't get a reply to the question you asked, you could
always do that.

I'm "moving" the faucet from the kitchen to the laundry room.
I found the installation instructions for the Price Pfister Marielle 532
series kitchen faucets here
But these instructions only talk about CONNECTING the "pullout hose"!
They don't tell you how to DISCONNECT it!
Here are what the instructions say:
Step 12, "Pullout Hose Connection":
"From underneath sink, push Quick Connect Housing (12A), located on the end
of the Pullout Hose (12B) firmly upward onto Receiving Tube (12C), until
unable to push any further. Pull down on Quick Connect Housing (12A). If
the housing and Inner Collet (12D) separate slightly but do not pull off,
the Receiving Tube (12C) quick connect is secure."
From this, can someone figure out how to DISCONNECT the hose coupling?
I called Price Pfister customer support at 1-800-PFAUCET (1-800-732-8238).
They slowly walked me through the disconnect procedure on the line and they
sent me a video clip.
I've never posted to u-tube but I might try to post the video clip to
u-tube so others can see how to do it for themselves now that this is in
the usenet record.
Basically their removal instructions are:
"To remove the quick connect attachment, Push up on Quick Connect Housing
(23A). Holding Plastic Collet (23B) in place, pull downward on Quick
Connect Housing (23A) until Tube (23C) is free."
Most of the faucet manufacturers maintain a customer service line,
where you can speak to a tech who will walk you through the operation
you need to do. They can also e-mail to you an exploded view of the
faucet in question. You will need the model number from the tag on the
cold water supply line.

All the while I had water dripping all over me because those lousy shutoff
valves were leaking like crazy. They were almost frozen solid when I tried
to shut off the water.
I'm going to replace both of those shut-off valves (one also goes to the
dishwasher so it's a double valve thing).
Should we turn those things once a year or so and should we leave them in
the fully open position or some in-between open position to prevent those
faucet valves from getting all stuck up.
