How to Replace and Install Your Kitchen Faucet

You use it everyday and whether its dripping, outdated or your families needs have changed, you will want to change to a sleek, new updated faucet. Luckily installing a kitchen faucet is extremely simple. Before you begin, check to see how many holes your sink currently has by looking underneath your sink. For this project you will need a faucet, basin wrench, wrenches, supply lines, plumbers putty, putty knife, plumbers, tape and a small bucket. To begin remove the old faucet by turning off the hot and cold water. Disconnect the supply lines and remove the bolts that connect the current faucet to the sink. Simply life the old faucet off. To install the new faucet, place the putty plate onto the deck plate. Place putty around the edges of the plate and install. The putty will keep water from dripping water down into the cabinet. Now guide the pipes through the holes and install the washers and hardware underneath the sink. Connect the supply lines and turn the water back on. Check for leaks, and tighten your connections. There, you are done and ready to tackle and stack of dishes! Subscribe to Lowe’s YouTube for great how to videos and home improvement tips: www.youtube.com Or head to our channel: www.youtube.com

  1. This is a wonderful step by step video. But what I’ve been looking for is, how to install´╗┐ just the sprayer part of the faucet. I’m not sure if my sink is set up for a sprayer, but I’m not so sure what to look for to make sure it is. Thx!!

  2. you should have called Delta its lifetime warranty. they would have replaced your broken one for free. Remember Moen is lifetime also,´╗┐ so call them first before buying a new one.

  3. Helpful video. I learned that with my new faucet, in the box there was a “quick install” tool that is used in place of the Basin Wrench….IT’S IN THE BOX! ´╗┐ Thanks again….

  4. I have a 2006 single handle kitchen “delta signature” and I believe the hot water side seat is bad.

    It runs 1/3 org pressure + within minutes it even gets even´╗┐ slower. When i turn it off it slowly slows down and finally stops. (about 10 seconds after stop) Thankfully, It does not drip at the pivot base.

    Ive heard Deltas all have a lifetime warranty?
    Is this true ? 1 800 number ?

    Dont have my´╗┐ reciept, will they try to avoid sending me the free needed parts?

    If so, where can I get them?

  6. I just purchased a faucet like the one you’re installing. It did not come with a flat washer to hold it in place. I’m almost positive that this part is necessary to hold´╗┐ up the faucet…correct?
