Can you add a sink sprayer to any kitchen faucet?
No, they have to have a place to attach it. The fitting is in the middle of the faucet underneath directly under the spout.You can also add on a hose sprayer to end of the faucet but you need a special fitting to do this. The fitting needs to be adapted with a quick release. A replacement sprayer with hose is then attached to this fitting along with the quick release. You then attached the whole unit to the end of the faucet. Neat part is that if you move you can take it with you.

The end of the sprayer where the hose comes into it unscrews. The sprayer comes off and at the end of the hose there should be a metal C clip holding 2 washers on the end of t…he hose. Just remove the clip and washers and install the new one.
Most faucets have a ring located at the spigot outlet. This ring can be unscrewed and contains a small screen. Over time build up from various in the water will coat and clog …this small screen creating the necessity to remove and clean or even repace it. If this does not work and the facucet is old the problem could be more serious with contaminants or severe wear in the water transer segment of the unit and may call for a faucett replacement.. Can you be more specific as to where the ring is that can be unscrewed?
Not likely. In the past the sprayer port could be blocked of with a small plumbing plug but recent designs are "o" ring with a retainer clip and no block off plug exists for t…hem.
Spray WD40 to the hex bolt under the sink. use a 7/16 (or a 11mm) to lose it (Well, in my case, I broke the bolt!) Rest is easy... Good Luck! NalinS
The water pump.
The diverter in the faucet is sticking. Instead of the water coming out of the neck of the faucet it is trying to go two places at the same time. This causes turbulence and th…e hammering.
Nothing it just is the model you have
Probably just buildup in the screen. Unscrew the aerator on the end of the spout and clean it out. Rust or minerals in the water will clog this over time.
On most sprayer heads, where the hose goes in unscrews. The first 3/4 inch or so. That lets the head come off and on the end of the hose there should be a C clip on the hose t…hat the end that unscrewed rests against. Slide the C clip off to remove the end piece and install a new sprayer head.
No, if the current faucet doesn't have a sprayer, there is no place on the faucet to attach the sprayer. It would attach on the underneath side of the faucet in the center.
