Sink Sprayer Issues

Sprayer doesn’t work properly

 

 

 

 

Common issue: Sprayer lever is not working

Potential solution: Contemporary spray units incorporate a diverter valve within the spout body, a flexible hose that is connected to the pipework under the sink unit, and a spray head with activating level. The spray head body and lever are integrated into a sealed unit that cannot be dismantled. If it malfunctions, it’s highly likely that you will need to connect a new spray head to your spray unit. The majority of contemporary sinks are fitted with spray hoses. Unfortunately, these frequently become loose, leak or fail to function properly.

 

Common issue: Water is spraying everywhere when you activate the unit

Potential solution: If water is spraying at odd angles when you activate the spray or insufficient water is flowing, it could be that the aerator element of the spray head needs a good clean. The aerator that is incorporated into the spray unit is very similar to those you find in standard faucets. If it becomes clogged with debris or mineral deposits, it will not function properly.

To fix the issue, try removing the sink screen, aerator, and diverter from the faucet outlet, soaking them in a mild vinegar solution or specialist product like Lime Away and then reassembling them. You can use the same process with the sprayer nozzle.
