Proper Faucet Installation Instructions
There are many reasons someone may need a faucet installation. There are some out there that need replaced to drip, rust, or maybe one just wants something different. The first step in faucet installation would be to remove the original faucet. TO be able to do this one will need to clear anything that is under the sink and be able to look under the sink where the faucet is connected to the base of the sink. Make sure that you are able to access the bottom of the faucet to be able to remove the old one and replace it with the new one. This small area is why many people prefer to have a professional plumber come in and do the job.
The next step would be to remove the old faucet. One should know where the water shutoff is before they begin. Next step would be to make sure that you have all your tools and a bucket just in case as well as face protection from any debris that might fall while you work. One may want to make sure they have an absorbent towel just in case as well. Once you have all the materials that one would need to complete the job the next step would be to locate the water shut off valve. Once one has shut off the water then they can begin the faucet installation. One will need to remove the old faucet that is there making sure they do not break the base of the sink while trying to remove the actual faucet. This will be one of the trickiest parts of the faucet installation. This is where one may cause damage that would then require a more expensive bill than hiring a plumber to come in and do the faucet installation. One will need to make sure that you are replacing the inlet tube at the same time as the faucet just to make sure that everything is on the same timeline.
The next step is to clean the faucet area that you just removed the old faucet from. This would mean that the entire gunk that you were not able to reach previously because the faucet was there is now visible and needs to be removed prior to completing the faucet installation. Then the next step would be to properly replace the faucet with the new faucet this will require caulk and plumbers glue as well as the other tools that you should already have out. Make sure that your new faucet fits properly and connections are tight to avoid leaks.
