Question about Plumbing
My faucet sprays fine, but it won't go to stream. In the video you will see that something popped out from under the rubber cover. Everything else works just fine. At one point you helped me fix the handle. Hope you can help with this one! Thanks
SOURCE: side spray has very low pressure
Disassemble the sprayer and remove the dirt and dibri gathered inside.
Has the water been turned off to that faucet, or the entire home recently? If yes, it probably loosened sediment in the pipes and its clogging the sprayer.

No a pull out sprayer problem is different.
First try this. Pull out the sprayer and remove from hose by turning nut that connects sprayer to hose. If you can get someone to help you it would be nice since the hose can go down into the faucet and might be trouble to retrieve. Look in the connection on the sprayer where the hose connects and look at the screen. If the screen is plugged or dirty clean and reinsert. If you can't clean it replace it. If this isn't working go to the next suggestion below.
In the spray head of the faucet there is a build up of deposits from use and or water hardness. Here is the link to the Delta site.
If you find you faucet model order a new spray head. Once these go bad they usually need replacing.
Hope this helps and please rate this!

SOURCE: We have a fancy single
does the faucet have an aireator on the end of spigot. if so remove by turning off with pliers, and see if it is blocking the water. if it is, clean aireator and replace if necessary.

Hi rysenga, the problem is an omission of directions. The section 9 directions are the worst offender and left me never again to purchase a Kohler product. First, this connection for the pull out hose to the outlet fitting should have been a screw on connection. Should have been. Ok it was not, I'll get over it. But the directions never mention having to install the white plastic bushing. Not at all. Nor does it mention that the bushing should be put on the outlet first and then push the hose connection in. This omission is a huge one, but should help anyone else reading this complete the install. Find the oval lip white bushing and install this first on the body, and then just push the connector in. Done.
