Thread: pulsing sound

  1. #1

    Default pulsing sound

    When I turn on the water in the kitchen, there is a pulsing sound that is made, whether the cold or hot water is turned on. The faucet is a combo hot/cold.
    Sound does not happen on any other fixture in the home.

    Any suggestions?

    If you have a sprayer attachment for the kitchen faucet it's possibly the cause.

    If you have one of these and you had used the sprayer and shut off the faucet while holding the lever of the sprayer ... the diverter is still engaged. So the next time you turn on the kitchen faucet you will hear pulsing sounds as the flapper inside the diverter moves to allow the water through the spout.

    Possibly the diverter is bypassing , worn or plugged.... in which case just replace the diverter .... they are relatively inexpensive.

    Hope this helps.

    Could also be a well pump and the air bladder is damaged. Are you on a well?

    Not on a well

    We do have a sprayer and I'll take a look at that.
    Thanks for the help
