I just had my plumber install a new Mico faucet #7711 in my kitchen. It has very low water pressure. I can hardly rinse my dishes. The old one worked fine so it's not my pipes. My plumber said it had a complicated water resricter on it and he didn't want to mess with it. He installed a different kind of faucet in my pantry and it works fine. Is there any way I can fix my Mico one? I cannot find any place to contact them directly and it cost a lot.

Your plumber is right on the money.

YOU Supplied the faucet so it is YOUR problem to get it right.

Many people buy fixtures and faucets and they cry when a problem arises.

Legally your plumber cannot alter any flow restricting devices and If you bought the faucet from a reputable outfit they should have no problem taking it back.

Your plumber should be congratulated for standing her /his ground and refusing to alter this faucet.

You happened to have picked an honorable plumber

An honorable plumber would have pulled the aerator an verified that there is no debrie blocking the flow.
