    new Delta faucet, water flow

    I'm considering a Delta kitchen faucet that claims to offer 1.8 GPM based on 60 PSI. The pressure where our outside pipe (from a drilled well) enters the house is 44 PSI. Will this lower pressure have a significant impact on the flow of water from the faucet? Thank you.

    What type of spray hose connection is this?

    Hello, I'm looking to remove our kitchen house sprayer from it's feed, and place a brass flare cap over it. But what kind of connection is in this picture? It's hard to get to so I want to know just how to remove it once I'm ready. And does it look like I'd be able to place a cap on it? Thank you
