What Is That Noise?

Don't be alarmed if your kitchen faucet suddenly starts whistling like a tea kettle. This sharp and high-pitched noise can be attributed to water pressure that is either too high or too low. Simply adjust the pressure from the faucet's shut-off valve until the water pressure is normal again and the sound stops. If the noise still persists, the issue may be lodged debris in the faucet. To fix this, you will need to remove the supply line from under the sink, then blow compressed air into the faucet to clear it.
