OPEN A FAUCET IN THE KITCHEN AND WAIT IF WATER COMES THEN YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM MY GUESS IS THERE IS TOO MUCH AIR PRESSURE IN THE TANK . IF YOU HAVE AN ELECTRIC WATER HEATER YOU HAVE ALREADY BURNT THE ELEMENTS OUT IN IT

Plumbing | Answered 3 days ago


I had the same issue with an American Standard faucet that I installed new 6 months ago. The diverter can be the issue if you have a sprayer attachment. Try unscrewing the sprayer head from the hose it's attached to. Now run the water full pressure with the hose pointed into the sink, obviously :~). After running the water for about 1 minute, connect the sprayer head back onto the hose, make certain the flat rubber washer and ring gaskets are seated in their grooves properly, and tighten until you have no water leaking from the sprayer head/hose connection. Now try the water through the faucet. If the problem was a temporary diverter issue, your pressure should be fine now. Good luck

I think that you could try and just be able to replace the handle and the spigot then. Try and get a second plumber to take a look at it and see if a second plumber says something different. If another plumber says the same thing then it will have to be replaced.

I doubt the kitchen tap is actually turning itself on - or is it?
Perhaps fluctuations in water pressure are defeating the tap...

More details would have been helpful, such as mentioning the tap design (traditional or quarter turn type?) and when the hammering noise happens?

Hammering is often caused by a worn tap. When turned partly on the jumper can vibrate and cause the pressure in the pipe to fluctuate and magnify the noise, especially when there is a long run of pipe that is inadequately clipped to the wall...

The LED indicator light on the base of the faucet will start blinking red when it is time to change the batteries. If the batteries are not replaced in time, the faucet will still function with manual operation. ... Place the battery pack as close to the floor of the cabinet as possible.

Possible remedies are: allowing the water to run for several days (in the case of a new well), screen installation or replacement (for a sand and gravel well), or installing a liner in a sandstone well.

This is a shot in the dark... Hose connectors that push into a fitting do have a release mechanism. Usually this is a small fitting that pushes into the collet releasing the hose. Following the hose to the collet, the release should be the first thing you come to. Try pushing this into the collet and tugging on the hose.
