Pulsating Kitchen Faucet


I installed a new four-hole kitchen faucet a few months ago - no problem. It suddenly has started pulsating when you turn on water, like there is air in the line. Checked the aerator - clean, no problem.

Now there is a puddle water leak underneath the sink, not sure if that is a symptom or a cause.

I'll go down there and check the connections, but what am I looking for?

One thing that bothered me about this unit is the cheap-looking plastic clip at the base of the faucet.

Yes, it is the clip. This "Hydrolock" connection was a cute idea but the plastic clips don't hold up.
