The hose is always filled with water when not in use. The longer that water remains stagnant in that line, the more it will absorb that smell. Try running the water for 10-15 seconds before filling your glass. If that doesn't solve the problem, purchase a new hose.

    The sprayer hose is always filled with water. The longer that water is stagnant in that hose, the more smell will be absorbed into that water. There are a few things you can do.

    1. Run the water through the sprayer for 10-15 seconds before filling your glass.

    2. Don't draw your drinking water from the side sprayer.

    3. Purchase a new side spray hose. If the hose has a "smell" to it while it is still in the package, find a different hose to buy.

There could be a clog anywhere between the diverter and the sprayer. Sometimes the line collapses from age and has to be replaced. Look under the sink to check for leaks.

Today,water was coming out of faucet but will now only come out of the sprayer and nothing out of the faucet. This has happened a couple of times recently but "self-corrected". The faucet is 6 years old.


Hi, there are filters that need cleaning periodically. Undo the nut where the water comes out from the tap, use an appropriate sized spanner, remove meshed filter, clean under running water and replace.
Hope this helps

We are getting a metallic taste and smell


The metalic taste is coming from the the new faucet

I would call American Standard and ask them if they have any complaints for this particular model

I would run hot water through the faucet for 5 minute intervals

If it persists I would take it back and demand a refund or cal AS and demand a refund or replacement model

I am sure the local news would like to report something like this

Kitchen spray not working completely.


Make sure the sprayer is clean of debris. IF YOU HAVE HARD WATER, soak in CLR overnight. If sprayer is clear then its the diverter which is more indepth thru the stem.
