On new installations, the hoses may get twisted or kinked. Look under the sink and check that the supply hoses are untangled.
Unscrew the spray head from the hose and place in the sink. Turn the water on. This only verifies that the low water pressure is not caused by a part within the faucet. If pressure is normal, the problem is with the restrictor which looks like a circle disk located at the thread entrance where the spray head connects to the hose. To remove the restrictor, use a small tool such as a screwdriver, pinch to the side and pull out the restrictor. Check the water pressure again and if fixed attach the spray head back to the hose. If the problem continues call customer service at 1-800-694-4837.
There are very few differences between prep/entertainment faucets and lavatory faucets. The main difference is prep/entertainment faucets do not have a pop-up waste drain therefore a drain with a separate mechanical control will need to be purchased. The most important thing to keep in mind when considering a prep/entertainment faucet for the bathroom is the spout length. The water must come out of the spout directly over the drain to prevent water from splashing out of the sink. If the spout is too long for standard installation, your contractor may be able to install the faucet farther back in the cabinet to offset the extra spout length.
Pulse the side spray a few times. If the faucet continues to make a noise, ask your dealer to order a new diverter for your faucet.
Most faucets will drip for a few seconds as excess water is released from the spray head. Remaining in the spout or the hose for pull out faucets, water should be pushed out for a few seconds. This is due to health reasons to ensure the freshest water. Do not be concerned unless the dripping continues for an extended period.
