My house has the one knob, pull on, push off style Price Pfister
facuets. They are really hard to turn on, or off, and even hard to
twist for hot and cold. It seems to effect both showers and sink
Would a cartridge replacement fix this problem, or is it time for new
Thanks for any advice, and have a nice day,
Thanks for the replies. I went ahead and swapped out two cartridges,
and they work really well. Nice and easy to trun on, or off. These are
not cheap; costs are $18 each including tax. I noticed that the
replacement cartridges are greased up well, maybe I could grease up the
old ones to make them easy to use?
Thanks agin for your time, and have a nice day,
Had the same problem with Price Pfister,changed the
cartridge and solved the problem!Works better than new, and a whole lot cheaper.
Just about any Price Pfister faucet with ceramic cartridges
will most likely still be under factory warranty.
Call them and they'll likely send 'em for gratis although
they will probably charge a $5 shipping fee.
Most of the big name faucet manufacturers seem to be pretty
good with their customer service and warranty parts.

Thanks, Malcolm! I just sent their customer service an email to see if
their 'limited lifetime warranty' covers cartridges. We will see what
their reply is, and I will post it to this newsgroup! With NINE Price
Pfister facuets in my house requireing $18 cartridges, the warranty
should would help out!
Thank you again for the info, and have a nice day,

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Malcolm!
I just got off the phone with Price Pfister; they are shipping me FOUR
free cartridges (part number 974-292). Cost was only $5 for shipping.
Thank you again for the advice. Take care, and have a nice day,
Even cheaper than cartridge and easy to try would be to disassemble,
clean and apply plumbers grease to all O rings and washers. Cost you
about $3 and a half an hour. if that doesn't work replace the innards.
