      Only the kitchen sink water pipes (hot and cold)thump and knock like the dickens when the water is turned on. This activity dissapates after 15/20 seconds. Now, there is a pause of 20 seconds of so after the fauset is turned on before water comes out. No other fauset head in the house experiences this.The house is approx 50-60 yrs. old. The supply lines appear to be original.Got any ideas on what causes this? can it be fixed w/o ripping out the plumbing under the house?

      Your faucet has a spray hose attached to it, and the diverter device is malfunctioning.
