Don’t you hate it when you wake up in the middle of the night wondering if your kitchen sink sprayer attachment is leaking?
After this perhaps you will.
It is very common for kitchen sink sprayer attachments to leak.
When they leak, they have a nice little funnel that the hose attaches to that drains the leak into the sink cabinet below. If you have a ton of stuff under your sink like I do, this leaking can go on for quite some time before it gets noticed.
It is a really good idea to get down on your hands and knees once in a while and check. Remember, every time you turn your faucet on, there is pressure against the sprayer head—whether you are using the sprayer or not.
Many people have sprayers they never use and therefore have even less chance of noticing it might not be behaving itself.
Here is a short little video of how much it can be leaking without knowing it.
