Simply Build It

check the specification of the tap. sounds like the new one is designed for use on a high pressure system. the cold to the kitchen tap is always, or should be at least, mains fed so you would not expect low pressure on the cold side.

if it is then its no good, you would need change for one suitable for low pressure.
