Faucet Replacement in Freeport, NY

Six steps for a do-it-yourself installation


If you’re a handy Do-It-Yourselfer you will probably be able to perform a single-handle faucet replacement on your own. Follow these steps for a successful installation.

  1. Shut off the water: Open the faucet to drain any excess water and disconnect the hot and cold water supply lines from the shutoff valves.
  2. Remove the old faucet: Reach up behind the old faucet and, with a basin wrench, unscrew the nuts connecting the supply tubes to the faucet. Then, remove the mounting nuts holding the faucet in place. Once those are out, lift the old faucet out and disconnect the sprayer hose. If the sprayer hose is in good shape, you can keep it on. If not, replace it with the new one.
  3. Position the new sprayer hose: Connect the new faucet’s fittings with the water-supply lines. Slip the new sprayer hose down through the sprayer hole and feed it up through the center faucet hole. Then, connect the hose to the sprayer nipple using an adjustable wrench.
  4. Attach the flexible connectors: Because the hot and cold supply tubes may vary in length, attaching these is probably a good idea. You’ll want to attach them to the fittings on the faucet’s supply tubes. Use two wrenches to tighten each connection so you don’t damage the faucet’s copper supply lines.
  5. Seat the faucet: Insert and feed the connectors and supply lines to the center hole and then seat the faucet. You have to make sure the faucet’s gasket lines up correctly. To hold the faucet in place, install a washer and a nut to the end bolts from under the sink.
  6. Tighten the connections: Use an adjustable wrench to tighten everything and then turn on your shut-off valves and the faucet to see if it’s working properly.
