What is the brand name on the faucet?

Is it a single control and does it have more then one handle?

High pitch noise from faucet

It is a Delta faucet with a single handle and it has a separate sprayer nozzle. Thank you for your reply.

Well 1st off I'd find out what the pressure is at the house with a pressure gage, one that connects to the spigot outside, and see what the pressure is, if the pressure is high then this is the problem, let us know what you learn.

Take off the aerator and see if it still does it.Most times i replace the ball and cups inside and it solves the problem.
