Hi. I bought a new American Standard kitchen faucet, the kind that the sprayer is on a hose and comes right out of the faucet to use if you want to. The long hose attached (stainless) leaks at the connection under the sink. I've replaced the washer, but I think from pulling out the nozzle, it gets twisted and loosens itself. Is there something I can put on it to make it stay tight?

These fuucets can be a mean thing to install, all I can say is you have to try and get it as tight as possible.

If it still wants to leak, take it back and have it replaced, it could be defective.
