Strong initial flow=pressure reserve AFTER the block

I agree with the idea of checking the installation, screens and other faucet related items, but the thing that bothers me is the strong initial flow. Only Randy will know for sure how long the initial flow is, but it seems to me that if there is a lot of initial flow, there is pressure AFTER the block that is relieved before the reduced water flow is evident. In that case, and again, this depends on HOW LONG the water pressure is high when it turns on, it would indicate the flow restriction is farther up the line than under the sink... I don't know, I'm not a plumber. Just a thought...

Good luck Randy, and do try the plumbing board...
