Kitchen sink sprayer – Many new faucets have nozzles with expandable hoses that serve as sprayers, but prior to this advance, many kitchen sinks had separate sprayers that were mounted on the body of the faucet plate or on the side in a separate hole of the faucet. There are still standing kitchen sink sprayers, so there is no need to buy a brand new kitchen faucet when the sink sprayer needs to be replaced.
The installation of a kitchen sink sprayer is a fairly easy project that you can do yourself if you do not mind putting it a little under the kitchen sink. Even if your faucet does not currently have a sprayer, it can be configured to allow you to add one. You will need to check the body of the sink to see if it has the nipple fitting needed to connect a hose.

If your faucet does not currently have a secondary sprayer, check the sink configuration to make sure there is a mounting hole available for the sprayer. Also, check the valve to make sure there is a bypass valve nipple for the sprayer. This valve is used to shut off the water from the spout and direct it to the spray hose when it detects the pressure release that occurs when you press the sprayer handle. If the faucet does not have a diverter, you can not install a sprayer.
