Some cartrides are hot/cold specific. The hole that allows the water to pass thru the cartridge will not close because you can't turn it far enough. Some cartrides are hot/cold specific. The hole that allows the water to pass thru the cartridge will not close because you can't turn it far enough.

Cant get water to come out of your faucet but it comes out the sprayer screen is ok and faucet has been disassembled and put back together?

There is a ball or cartridge in the faucet that diverts the water to the sprayer when you use it. These can become stuck from minerals in the water. You can take it apart and put some CLR or full strength toilet cleaner in it and let it sit for a while. The toilet cleaner can cause burns so be careful with that. Slowly turn the water on just a bit to flush out the cleaner and reassemble. Turn the water on, Hot, hold the sprayer and tap the side of the faucet at the base of the spout with the handle of a table knife or similar weight metal. The vibration may cause the ball to release.

What does it mean when kitchen sink drips when toilet is fllushed and shower is used?

It means that you should sell your home and move far away! No jk If its your faucet that is dripping I think in time your faucet needs repaired or replaced because if it drips only when you run water at another fixture (faucet) and doesn't drip if you have everything off then you have a strange faucet but its most likely caused by water hammer (sudden stop of water flow) and if you don't think its cause by that then it also could be from water pressure which when you turn on another faucet and the pressure drops a little and from the drop of pressure and it vibrates your seal in your faucet which could make it drip but very rare but possible.

Why does turning on one faucet cause significant pressure loss in every other faucet in the house?

Turning on one faucet will cause a pressure drop at any other faucet that is running, but you say it is a "significant" drop - that implies that you have low water pressure, period. You might to consult with a plumber to see if anything can be done - if you live in a house with very old steel plumbing pipes, replacing them can make a noteworthy difference (it's not cheap, of course). Or possibly, you have an unusually low pressure system, perhaps a gravity feed system. Installing a water pump will solve any inconvenience, such as the shower almost quitting when a toilet is flushed elsewhere.

Why is my hot water faucet in bathroom have a loud squeal when I turn it on?

Your most likely cause and the easiest and cheapest to repair is probably related to a bad washer or O ring on the washer cartridge stem. This is how I fixed the problem in my kitchen sink about 20 minutes ago. Shut off the water supply to the sink if it is a single line or to the affected faucet if it is a a two line system. Next, remove the noisy faucet and cartridge assembly. Unscrew the cartridge completely from the hold down nut and inspect the washer on the bottom of the stem as well as the o ring about midway up. replace both of these with the appropriate size and set the cartridge aside for a moment. Next, take some fine steel wool (I recommend using an SOS pad) and carefully clean the threads and the seat on the hold down nut. Do the same to the threads on the stem and pay particular attention to the area at the bottom of the stem as that is where a lot of residue and calcium buildup can occur. Now put the cartridge assembly back together and replace the assembly in the sink. Voila...problem solved and it didn't cost an arm and a leg to have a plumber come to your house.

Why is there no water coming from one faucet in the bathroom?

If there are supply valves feeding the supply lines connecting your faucet, they may be closed, or simply your faucet components/inserts and or supply lines may be restricted.ANS 2 - most common cause for this is a plugged aerator or stop valve.
