new kitchen faucet bangs when turned on.

Customer Question

Last week, I installed a new kitchen faucet, a high arc, 2-handle with sprayer (nearly identical to what I previously had, but higher neck). It bangs when I turn the water on.


I hadn't used it much yet, but I am today -- I notice it also bangs when I turn the sprayer on and off.
