    Default Problem with Kitchen Faucet Sprayer

    Hello,

    I hope someone can help me. I have a problem with my kitchen faucet sprayer.
    No water is coming out, so I thought the deverter is not not opening. I replaced the deverter. Same thing, no water coming out.
    When I take the deverter out, the sprayer works fine and at the same time water is coming out off the faucet/spout too.
    So the lines are not clogged.
    Before that I replaced the old valves of this type with this type
    Can it be that the new ones does not open enough like the old ones so that the water pressure is less than before?

    Thank you

    Are you sure it is Delta, model # would help, and picture of the faucet mounted on sink would help too.

    Did the problem start immediately after changing the angle stops? Do you notice less flow with the new angle stops? Have you cleaned out the aerator? Have you tested without the aerator? The diverter valve needs a certain amount of flow to engage. Whenever plumbing systems are shut off, the subsequent in-rush when turned back on can dislodge sediment that then gets trapped in places like angle stops, heat traps, aerators, etc., and may need to get flushed out.

    So the aerator is clean too. I can't remember how the water flow was before I remodelled my kitchen.

    Ja, but "not clogged" is such a relative term. As I said, the diverter may need a certain volume of flow but you cannot remember how good the flow was before.

    Your photo seems to show the "spray" and "spout" connections reversed.

    IF it works without the diverter, but not WITH the diverter, you either have the spout and spray connections reversed so it thinks the spray is always on, or you have a bad diverter, ( I prefer the plastic Delta diverters). Put a dime in the aerator to stop the flow and see if the spray works. If it does the connections are reversed.

    Good catch. The label on the "Spray" connection is missing the "S" so "pray" is going to the spout.

    Maybe "pray" refers to what you do when you buy a faucet made in China.

    Pray is what us DIY'ers do. We pray that we get it right. If we don't, we pray that we can find a pro that is willing to take over a job started by a DIY'er. Then we pray they don't charge us double the going rate as punishment.
