Installing New Kitchen Faucet Plumbing

Your kitchen faucet is one of the areas of your home that is likely to get the most use. This is especially true as it relates to your plumbing usage. After all, you use it to wash hands, fruits, vegetables, dishes, and more. Needless to say, you need your kitchen faucet plumbing to function properly at all times. There’s a lot that you will want to consider when you are looking to install a new kitchen sink.

Tips For Picking, Choosing, and Installing New Kitchen Faucet Plumbing:

1. Find The Right Faucet

One of the first things you need to do is identify the right faucet for your kitchen. The existing hardware for your kitchen is the first thing you need to look at. After all, you need it to fit into the existing structure and plumbing. How many holes do you have in your kitchen sink? Unless you are looking to make a drastic change, you’ll want to stick with what works with your current setup.

2. Turn Everything Off

When you are looking to replace your kitchen faucet, you need to completely shut off all of the water. You can do this by turning off the water valves. This can ensure that you won’t deal with any leaks throughout the installation process. It will make it easier to install the new kitchen faucet.

3. Remove Your Old Faucet

Before you install your new kitchen faucet, you’ll need to get rid of the old one. You need to uninstall it. The good news is, getting rid of the old faucet isn’t too difficult at all. Typically, you would just unscrew everything and pull it out from the top. It should come out rather easily. If not, you may have a bolt that you forgot about or a bolt that is stuck due to mineral deposit buildup.

4. Install The Facuet

Now it’s time to install your brand-new faucet. By now, you should have a rather easy installation process. Follow the instructions for the faucet and ensure that you are putting everything so the holes line up.
