Licia....did you ever solve the "mystery"??

I've looked underneath the sink and can see no signs of water leakage. It hasn't seemed as bad today, but nothing has been done so I'm at a loss as to what else to do. Dh doesn't seem to think there is a problem, but he doesn't do much in the kitchen except make coffee and ice cream cones.

I know what you mean licia. I got my new faucet when DH went to make coffee one morning and couldn't get any water. I went over and slammed the handle up and got it going. He said "okay, go pick out a new one!"

I found what was causing the problem. The spray attachment had loosened and was making a little stream of water when the faucet was turned on. Dh tightened it and everything is up to snuff now.

Thanks for all the answers.

Your best bet is to eat the cost of the plumber and get one in to find the leak and fix it.

I'm glad you found it without having to pay a plumber! Way better with no damage also!
