Whether you’re looking for a more modern look or your current faucet is on its last legs, a bathroom faucet replacement requires some skill. You need the right tools and the know-how to get the job done, right. This video explains how you can update and replace your bathroom faucet quickly and easily.
Faucet installation is pretty straightforward. You have water supply connections, connections to the shank of the faucet, and then a latch connection that bolts the faucet to the actual sink and counter. Before you do anything, however, make sure you shut the water off.
The issue with taking out the old faucet is that it’s difficult to use a normal wrench to take off the connections. The connections sit beneath the sink in a confined space that isn’t conducive to handling a wrench. Instead, you need a basin wrench or a similar tool that will let you twist of the nuts in a tighter spot.
Once that’s done, simply remove the old faucet head and handles, and screw the new one into place. Snug up the latches that connect the faucet to the counter, connect the water supply lines, and turn back on the water.
