|In response to Re: Kitchen Sink pressure|
: I had the kitchen sink valve replaced and since the replacement, my hot and cold water pressure is noticibly lower than before. The pressure is so low that pressing the thumb valve on the hand sprayer wont close the valve to divert water into the hand sprayer. The hand sprayer empties but water keeps running in the faucet. The plumber who replaced the faucet is stumped. There are no leaks and he checked multiple time to try and discover why the pressure is low. Any ideas?
