Sink sprayer hose makes noise

I just installed a new faucet. after the first few uses the sprayer hose began to make a thumping sound when water is turned on. I looked under the sink and the thumping is causing the sprayer hose bounce up and down during each thump. when I squeeze the handle on the sprayer assembley it stops and the water flows fine and the thumping sound stops, when I realease the sprayer handle the thumping comes back.

    I'm going to check the sprayer connection to the faucet. It's a snap quick connect. I tried what you said. And, also tried the same thing with the faucet itself on both hot and cold, by shutting off the supply from under the sink. I'm still getting a thump in sprayer and the faucet, when I turn on the water at the handle. But, it's as if the sprayer hose is filling up, then pop, as I turn on just the faucet. Any thoughts?

Spray not working, doesn't stop water from faucet.


It sounds like a kinked hose under the sink or a clogged nozzle. Unscrew the nozzle from the sprayer and check for calcium buildup. New parts can be purchased cheaply from the local hardware store, take the old parts in and a sales rep can help you with the correct parts. Some sprayers have replacement nozzles...unscrew the old and screw in the new.

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.

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...

Moen two-handle kitchen faucet, 1990's model installed new a few years ago, is leaking underneath at the center where the spray hose would connect. I didn't use the hose, though. The nut was tight. It...


The nuts used for capping off the sprayer attachment will bottom out and not seal. Unless there is tape or thread compound on the nut, it can spray a tiny jet up under the faucet when the faucet is activated. If there is clearly water leaking from above that, then the o ring for the spigot may be failing and need replacing. If this is the case, it will only leak when the faucet is activated. There is always the possibility of a crack in the casting of the faucet body; hope not:)

First porblems first; go to Home Depot and pick up two Gator Bite valves (no pipe sweating...work great!), appropriately sized and replace hot/cold water valves under the sink. It would also be best to get 1/4 turn valves instead of a gate valve.

The spray hose is connected at the base of the faucet itself - in the very center of the bottom side of the faucet. It's a very tight and difficult area to work in - you should be able to usscrew the old hose and place the new one directly where the old one was removed.

Installed brand new marielle kitchen faucet with matching srpay and soap... sprayer is not working. please help


If you used the teflon tape to seal the threads on the sprayer connection. Make sure the tape is has not blocked the line.
Check for any kinks in the hose and it is not pinned against something.

Turn on the cold water and hold the sprayer over the sink and activate.
If nothing happens while still holding the sprayer move from cold water to hot. If still no water there maybe something in the line preventing the sprayer from receiving water.

Highly doubt there is anything mechanically wrong but it has happened before. See if you can swap it for a new one.

Good luck!

New faucet, sprayer hooked up right, no water going into hose?


check the sprayer handle by disconnecting and blowing into it and pressing sprayer handle and/or for possible kink at main body or hose by disconnected sprayer point hose into sink and turn on water. If no water the the diverter in main body is not working properly and needs to be reassembled or replaced

Faucet/sprayer coordination


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!

Kitchen faucet Installation


Many new faucets require some assembly before mounting to the sink; if that is the case, follow the manufacturer's directions. With most pullout sprayer faucets, the sprayer needs to be threaded through the faucet body first. Insert the rubber gasket between the base plate of the faucet and the sink top to create a watertight seal. If no gasket is provided, pack the cavity of the faucet with plumber's putty, then insert the faucet body through the holes in the sink top. Thread the mounting nuts provided onto the faucet shafts, then center the threaded shafts in the sink's holes and tighten the nuts firmly. Many manufacturers include a special long socket specifically to aid in tightening the mounting nuts. A hole in the socket accepts the shank of a screwdriver, guiding it as you tighten the nuts. If you're mounting the faucet on an installed sink, use this method. If you're installing a pullout sprayer faucet--or a faucet with a separate sprayer--now is the time to connect the sprayer to the faucet body. Check the manufacturer's directions to see if using pipe-wrap tape for this connection is recommended. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection. Most pullout sprayer faucets and faucets with separate sprayers come with a counterweight that attaches to the sprayer hose. This weight helps retract the hose back in to the sink cabinet after you've used the sprayer. Follow the manufacturer's directions on where to secure the weight, and take care not to crimp the hose as you attach the weight. Hook up the faucet's hot and cold supply lines to the water supply shutoff valves under the sink. If necessary, gently bend the copper tubes coming out of the faucet for better access and connect flexible supply tubes to them. Simply wrap a couple of turns of pipe-wrap tape around the threaded nipples on the valves and connect the tubes. Tighten the nuts with an adjustable wrench.
