Kitchen faucet pitifully slow

Just had to shock my well + picked up a lot of contaminants in all my faucets. Cleaned aerator screens + fixed all but kitchen. I think this is a Pfister faucet, but can't find any markings. I believe there must be a valve inside to close the faucet when the sprayer's in use. This valve must be obstructed. My question is, how can I clean/remove the valve? Hoping I can access from top of sink w/o pulling entire faucet. TIA

I agree, if it worked fine before you shocked your well and now it doesn't, there's a good chance the diverter maybe clogged with sediment. They are all a little different, please post a picture of it when you can so we can better assist you. Is it a single or double handle?

Check out link when you get a chance.
