How to Replace Your Bathroom Faucet: The Breakdown

What are the materials that I’ll need? Great question! You won’t get anywhere with your faucet replacement without having the proper tools at the ready. Gather up an adjustable wrench, pliers, the new faucet, and some plumber’s tape and putty – you’re good to go!

Step 1: Make sure you know which type of faucet you have. There are three main faucet types (single hole, 4-inch triple hole, and 8-inch triple hole); it’s important to know which type you’re dealing with before you begin.

Step 2: Remove the old faucet; begin by shutting off the wall valves, then turn on the faucet to drain any residual pressure. Use your wrench to loosen and remove the faucet.

Step 3: Remove any hardware in the area – this includes any nuts and washers that secure your faucet.

Step 4: Install the new faucet, while adhering closely to the installation manual.

Step 5: Be sure to call a plumber, if you need assistance! No need to panic.
