Friedrich Grohe Galley Faucet

I'm looking for suggestions on how to get more pressure out of this faucet. I've taken it apart as best I can to soak, de-lime and clean but it's still weak. Can parts be obtained for this faucet? My wife likes it so we'd really like to salvage it and make it useful.

I have weak flow from my galley Grohe, probably a Ladylux 1 (discontinued). Possibly due to the one-way valve spring at the base of the pull-out nozzle being too strong for the water pressure. If you really want more flow, you might drill out the valve – and then in future avoid dropping the nozzle in sink water.

A distributor suggested parts might be available through Grohe at 1-888-644-7643 (I haven’t tried this).

By the way, I get sufficient water with a foot pump via a Nature Pure filter (same as Seagull IV).
