Mark,

You may want to check the strainer on end of the hose/faucet, possibly it needs cleaning creating a little more back pressure than normal.


: Yes, I have the hose. What you say makes sense. Is there anything that can be done about it?

: : Does yours have the spout on a hose that you can pull out? If so, the pressure expands the hose while you are using the faucet and then keeps the water flowing afterwards as it returns to its proper size.

: : : I recently replaced my kitchen faucet. Now when the water is shut off, the faucet has "run-on" like the line is draining slightly. Only lasts a second or two. Didn't do this with the old faucet. Any thoughts on potential causes? Both faucets in question are the single handle variety. Thanks, Mark.
