The design of a hand sprayer is meant to provide a
higher pressure spray (the smaller outlet size means greater velocity in
the water coming out of the sprayer head). That said, there could be something constricting the water flow in your faucet. If you unscrew the aerator on the end of the faucet do you get better pressure? Is the screen in the aerator clogged with sediment or mineral deposits? If this is the case you may have water requiring periodic cleaning of the aerator.
1-Remove aerator from end of faucet spout to check to make sure it is not obstructed by anything. Grit builds up there and causes flow to decrease , but it can be taken appart and cleaned out.
2-If you have a sprayer attachment to it sometimes the diverter goes bad. This sends water to spray head.
Cut water off remove handle with allen wrench and loosen collar on top to gain access to remove spout. after removing handle and collar you can pull up on spout or work it side to side easily to remove it.
In the middle at the bottom it has a removeable diverter that can be removed and replaced.
If it comes appart it will restrict water flow.
3- If you have to remove faucet to make sure no obstructions any where esle.
I hope this may be some help for you to have a starting point.
The problem is probably in the floating valve that is located under the spout. This valve floats up and into the base of the faucet when you push the handle on the sprayer to use it. This redirects the water to the sprayer.
They get stuck and then don't close off the spout properly
Short of teraring the faucet clean apart they are almost impossible to fix. Turning the water off and disconnecting the supply hoses, then blowing air back through the faucet spout may dislodge whatever is in there. This has worked for me in the past... and it has not work also...
May be worth a try..
