    Pulsing water out of the faucet???

    when i turn the water up high (either hot or cold) the water pulses. the higher the volume of water, the faster the pulsing.

    what is weird is that when there is no airator(sp?), the water comes out fine.

    i want to keep the airator in because those cut back on the splashing when the water hits something.

    whats going on with my sink? its only the kitchen sink, none of the other faucets do this.

    thanks

    Few things...

    First, do you hear any banging from the pipes when you shut the water off? Probably not the issue, but wanted to ask anyway.


    Ok second, if you turn the water on and let it start pulsing and then use the sprayer does the pulse stop? If you don't have a sprayer that shoots that idea down.

    1. I'll check that, i dont recall any noise when i turn the water off

    2. we have a sprayer, but the button on the handle broke and it leaks by the handle so now it just sits in the right side under the dish drainer / dryer

    but i'll see if i can get water to come out of the sprayer tonight

    the wierd thing is that it only happens when there is an airator in it. when there is no airator, no pulsing.

    turned both handles on full blast, faucet sounded like a machine gun, lol.
    got the sprayer to work, pulsing stopped, but water still came out of the faucet.

    looks like i need a new diverter, but i hate my sink and faucet and the sprayer is broke, so i guess we'll just get a new sink, faucet, and sprayer?

    That's what I was getting at Jimmy.

    You can go the replacement route like you said,...although in most cases a rebuild kit for a faucet is only a few bucks and takes about 10 minutes to install. So depending on how long you have to wait to yank everything out and replace it you still might want to look into it.
