    Have a new Danze single-handle (D403812) and JustRight instant hot water gizmo installed at kitchen sink. On opening faucet, air shoots out making terrible noise ("D-D-DONG!!!"). If shut off and re-opened immediately, this wont happen. If left to sit a few minutes it will "D-D-DONG!!!" again. This occurs whether hot or cold is opened. It also drips a tiny bit for a coupla minutes after shut off. It seems that faucet is entraining air when off.

    Is this a faucet issue or does it have to do with JustRight installation? I dont think its air in the loop. They installed bleeder valve and bled air as per instructions. And having used sink for weeks, I would think any air in loop would have worked itself out by now...

    Thanks for any help.
