How to replace a kitchen faucet?
You may be changing your faucet because you want a newer look but be ready for some unexpected surprises! Your water lines and pipes might need some changing as well. Corrosion and rust are some difficulties you might come across so it would be a great idea to get your plumbing checked before you remove the old faucet and try to install the new one.
Most new faucets come with easy installation instructions. You must determine the number of holes your former faucet has and choose the new one in accordance. If you are going from a two-hole fixture to a one-hole system you’ll have to buy sinkhole covers. But if you are replacing a single hole faucet with a multi-hole system this will require the assistance of a plumber.
Also, spout height and overall faucet height are very important features to take into consideration. If you have cabinets above your sink you must carefully measure the space available.
For over sink mounts it is crucially important to have some space behind the faucets for cleaning purposes.
