The spray hose on my kitchen sink used to slide easily, but eventually
leaked and was replaced. The replacement has to be pushed down into
its hole after use rather than simply dropping down. Should I
lubricate the hole with Dri-Slide or something? (The new hose appears
to be neoprene, reinforced with interlocked cloth threads.)
The lubricant may work for a while, or it might not, but it will wear
off in a year afaik. Of course it it does, it won't be hard to
The new hose may be stiffer than the old one. That might go away, but
I think it won't.
You could hang a weight on the hose, that was free to slide, so it was
always at the bottom whether the hose was pulled out or not. 2
pounds? 4 pounds? 6 pounds!!!! I haven't seen your hose or your
sink but I would guess a pound or two.
