I just installed my kitchen faucet and everything is fine EXCEPT the sprayer has practically no water pressure. Does anyone have any hints, tricks or guidance with this problem??

Thank you!!!

Check the connections under the sink again. It's possible the hose got kinked.

The only other thing I would check is the sprayer head for a piece of dirt that may be clogging it up. Take it apart and check to see.

I saw this problem taken care of on Ask This Old House, sorry Bob Vila.

The fix was replacing the piece within the faucet which diverts the water to the sprayer. I don't know the name of the part, but this might be your problem.
