Just installed a new kitchen faucet, along with new supply lines under sink, and new hot and cold water valves. Water pressure is great, however, after turning the water on, the water doesn't stay on. It is a single lever faucet (ball) and has the pull out sprayer built into the faucet. Is there an adjustment I can make to the faucet so the water will stay on? Thanks.

Dear Mr. Mickormick,

Before I go into a discussion about your problem, I want you to go to the bathroom and look underneath the toilet tank lid, copy down the date of manufacture, the manufactures name and stock/part number. After you realize that doing this action has nothing to do with your problem, ask yourself how anyone can answer your question?

Faucets today are varied and many and they all have there own spec's.

Personally I have never heard of a adjustment for a kitchen sink faucet but just because I never heard of it doesn't mean one doesn't exist.

I will tell you this much, welcome to my world of plumbing, it's back under the sink with you, remove faucet and exchange for another new one. I do not buy anything new so I can take it home and than have to adjust it to make it work right. You are the consumer here demand the same perfection that you would demand from the professionals.

I bet you bought this product from a big box store!

Sincerely,

Jim
