I recently started having an odd problem with my kitchen faucet. When I turn
the faucet on, either hot or cold, the flow is very slow intially, then it
sort of ramps up to normal flow. This is the only faucet in the house that
does this. It's only about 1-1/2 years old (out of warranty, not that I know
it's even defective). Great pressure everywhere, including this faucet once
it gets running. Copper lines, so I don't expect build-up in the pipes, and
again it's not limited to the hot or cold line.
I removed and inspected the ceramic cartridge, but didn't see anything odd.
Same with the aerator.
Is it possible to have some sort of vacuum/air-lock build up in the line
somewhere. Doesn't seem likely to me, but then I don't have a huge amount of
Thanks in advance for any ideas on how to proceed troubleshooting/fixing
