Post Kitchen Faucet

When I lift up my one handle kitchen faucet, there is a slight hesitation, then the water flows. I did notice that there is a pin hole in my sprayer. Could this be causing the problem, or is it the faucet. I did tape up the hole in the sprayer and problem improved a bit, however, there is still a hesitation. Any suggestions? Should I replace sprayer, faucet..or both???

If it is a Delta ball-type kitchen faucet, you can get a repair kit to repalce the internal parts.
Good Luck!

Replace the sprayer. If there is a hole in the line or the nozzle it is allowing the water to leak out when the faucet is off. I would think you would find a wet area under you sink some where? Anyhow, once you turn the wter back on, it has to fill this hose up again before you get water out of the faucet. This problem can cause your faucet to "chatter" too, not always, but sometimes.
