Repairing the Kitchen Spray Hose

If the leak isn’t due to the gasket, the problem will be in the hose. The best faucet repair you can try is cleaning the hose at both ends in case it’s clogged. Turn off the water under the sink and run the faucet until no more water appears. Unscrew the spray head from the hose (you might need to use a wrench for this to loosen the nut). Pull the hose so it comes through to the underside of the sink. Unscrew the hose at its connection to the water pipe.

Clean both ends of the hose in water. Use Teflon tape on the connection to the water pipe and screw the hose back in. Now thread the hose through its hole in the sink. Use Teflon tape on the connector and attach the spray head. Turn the water back on and test for correct operation.
