Try removing the aerator on the faucet. If that resolves the popping sound, try replacing it with one that allows for a higher flow of water. (Also the existing aerator may be clogged).

I have a glaicer bay kitchen faucet and when the water is turned on there is thumping. When I take the sprayer off the thumping stops.... is therea probelm with the sprayer?


to reduce the 'thumping' noise, open the supply valves more. If they are already at maximum, you may have a restriction further up the supply lines. Thumping is typically caused by unbalanced flow around the seat and washer, usually caused by restrictions.

There is a "thumping" noise


Sounds like your water pressure may be to high for the faucet, an inline regulator might be all you need. You didn't mention if it thumped once or repeatedly, if its the latter, you may need to install an expansion tank. Next time you turn it on, try it to the left (hot), and to the right (cold) to see if it only makes the sound on the hot side, if so an expansion tank may needed. Good Luck

I just bought a new Delta kitchen faucet, it is a two handle, sprayer model. It makes a thumping noise when I first turn the water on and when I use the sprayer . I've been told to replace the diverter....


The thump comes from one of several areas. Air pressure in the hand sprayer is one.

But I suspect that you need to check your shut off valves. Old style (non ball) valves fail during this event. There is a little washer that deteriorates, over time....
Then you need to install a faucet, you shut the valves and the little washers either break or come loose. When they break, little pieces go up and clog the faucet.
The other failure is they partially block flow afer coming loose, and cause a thump, like what you describe. To fix, shut off main water in the house and DRAIN what you can. Best to replace with whole new valve, but next best is to replace the guts, unscrew and take to hardware store and get new stem and guts. Inspect the seat, often they get damaged and pitted. Nor necessarily an issue on this install, as the valve in normally open...

We have a Delta kitchen faucet with a pullout sprayer everything was fine for over a year then it started making a bang bang rattle sound very loud only when the hot water is on it only does it about ever...


Delta comes with a limited lifetime warranty. call them to get free parts. I believe you will need to check several things. Remove the spray head from the sprayer hose, point the hose into the sink drain and turn the faucet on. If it no longer makes the banging noise, replace the spray head. You need to look for a leaking spray hose under the sink also. If the faucet is making noise, replace the ball and cam assembly under the faucet handle. One other thing that I have run into is that the shut-off valves under the sink can also go bad and cause banging and vibration.

Water running in Moen single-handle kitchen faucet suddenly stops


There is a small diverter valve on the faucet underneath where the hose connects too it needs to be replaced depending on the age of the faucet I usually recommend replacing the entire faucet with another Moen product
