    Kitchen faucet that has seperate hot and cold controls. Faucet loops up and then back down toward sink. A good 10 yrs old.

Sounds like water hammer. Air in the pipes. Lower volume of water out of the sprayer isn't enough to initiate the hammer. Try shutting the water off to the house and draining the pipes.
Open the offending faucet and turn the water back on this should eliminate the air in the pipes.

If you have a Delta faucet your diverter may need to be replaced. The diveter is located under the spout (see diagram)(this is not your faucet but works the same)

Here are the instructions:

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Remove handle.
  3. Remove top cap.
  4. Turning spout back and forth gently lift and remove.
  5. Remove and replace diverter.
Hope this helps and please remember to rate this!

Page 2 on this web site has the diverter listed. Sounds like the diverter is sticking or hanging up and not working right. The link below has information on the faucet you have so I hope this will be helpful for you.
First you could take it off and clean it and check it out for any blockage.

I recently installed a Pfister Cagney Single control kitchen faucet with side spray. The spray has no pressure. The water from the faucet is great. What could be the problem?


Could be trash got into hose( i.e., teflon tape, brass shavings, etc.). I suggest that you turn off water, disconnect the hose and try flushing water through the hose with no sprayer attached. If water goes through, then you have a stoppage in the sprayer. The face of the sprayer usually unscrews allowing you to check if there is trash in it.

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 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.

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.

Moen has a diverter built in that will need to be replaced.

use the same steps as when you replaced the cartridge, but this time you will need to remove the spout, there is a small diverter, you will see it when spout is removed.

take this part with you to the hardware store, along with the O Rings from the spout, as they will need to be replaced also

use a non silicone faucet lubricant when putting back together
