Varying Water Pressure

Kitchen Sink. Separate knobs for cold and hot. Sprayer is separate from the main faucet (i.e., not a pull down sprayer). ​ When I turn on the faucet, water pressure is not quite full pressure. It's not enough to affect much. It's just barely noticeable. Doesn't matter if it's hot or cold, the pressure is consistently about 85-90%. ​ However, if I use the sprayer, the main faucet goes to 100% when I'm done with the sprayer. ALSO, if I "bleed" the sprayer instead of using it, the same thing happens. ​ Has anybody ever seen any shit like this? Basically, the only way I can get full pressure out of my faucet is to give a squirt by the sprayer. submitted by /u/helloiamCLAY [link] [comments]
