Tools and materials needed
In order to install a bathroom sink faucet with pull out sprayer, you will need the following tools and materials:
-A Phillips head screwdriver
-A flathead screwdriver
-An adjustable wrench
-Supply lines (hoses) that fit your faucetStep-by-step installation instructions
1. Begin by turning off the water supply to your sink. You will typically find the shutoff valves under the sink. If you cannot locate them, turn off the main water supply to your home.
2. Use the Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws that are holding the old faucet in place. If your old faucet is attached with nuts, use the adjustable wrench to loosen them.
3. Carefully remove the old faucet, taking note of how it was attached so that you can install the new one in the same manner. Be sure to save any washers or other small parts as you will need them for reassembly later on.
Installing the faucet body.
1. Start by shutting off the water supply to the sink. There are usually two valves under the sink; one for hot water and one for cold. Turn both of these valves clockwise to shut them off.
2. Place a rag in the drain to catch any water that may drip out when you disconnect the supply lines.
3. Use an adjustable wrench to loosen the nuts that secure the hot and cold water supply lines to the valves. You may need to use pliers to hold onto the valve stems while you loosen the nuts. Once the nuts are loose, remove the supply lines and set them aside.
4. Take a look at your old faucet and note how it is mounted to the sink. Most bathroom sink faucets are either top-mounted or bottom-mounted. Top-mounted faucets attach to the countertop with bolts that go through holes in the sink, while bottom-mounted faucets attach directly to the underside of the sink.
5If you are replacing a top-mounted faucet, use a screwdriver or drill to remove the screws that hold it in place, then lift off the old faucet and exposing the mounting holes in the sink. If you are replacing a bottom-mount faucet, simply unscrew it from underneath the sink (no tools required).
6Now it’s time to install your new bathroom sink faucet! If you’re installing a top-mount faucet, line up the mounting holes in the sink with the holes in the faucet body and secure it in place with screws. If you’re installing a bottom-mount faucet, screw it into place from underneath the sink.
7. Once the faucet is mounted, it’s time to reconnect the supply lines. First, wrap plumber’s tape around the threads of each valve stem (this will help create a watertight seal). Then, use your adjustable wrench to tighten the nuts that secure the supply lines to the valves. Be careful not to over-tighten these nuts, or you may damage the valves.
8. Turn on the water supply valves and check for leaks at all of the connections. If there are any leaks, simply tighten the connection until it stops leaking.
9That’s it! You’ve successfully installed your new bathroom sink faucet with pull-out sprayer!
Installing the handles.
1. Turn off the water supply to the sink.
2. Remove the old handles by unscrewing them from the faucet body. If they are stubborn, you may need to use a handle puller or a similar tool.
3. Clean the surface of the faucet where the handles will be mounted.
4. Mount the new handles to the faucet body, using the screws that come with them. Be sure to not overtighten them, as this can damage the finish on the handles or faucet body.
5. Once both handles are installed, turn on the water supply and check for leaks at all connection points.
Installing the pull-out sprayer.
1. Turn off the water supply to the sink.
2. Unscrew the sprayer hose from the faucet body.
3. Remove the old pull-out sprayer from its mounting bracket.
4. Install the new pull-out sprayer in the mounting bracket.
5. Screw the sprayer hose onto the new pull-out sprayer.
6. Turn on the water supply and test the sprayer for leaks.
