  1. Take it off and do it right. My motto is: Do it Right, not Over. This means from now on you’ll do these things: #1 go to my AsktheBuilder website and subscribe to´╗┐ my FREE newsletter for weekly tips. #2 ALWAYS come to my site and search my videos to see if I have the answer before you start a job. Deal??

  2. @AsktheBuilder @AsktheBuilder There was a significant, undetected leak for a few weeks. So the minor trickle that might make its way in will be of minimal concern, but Ill tend to it just the same. Thanks again for the quick replies, and I promise…Next weekend I putty it up. PS: Once I smash down the faucet and tighten it down, will the squeezed-out plumbers putty clean up with water? I’ve not´╗┐ used it before.

  3. Just following up, that I did remove it and use putty. I also bought a telescoping basin wrench, which I should have bought´╗┐ 15 years ago. Faucet was out, puttied, and back in in all of 20 minutes. Thanks again for all the help. Justin in Indianapolis.

  4. This was very easy to follow. Will watch your videos for my many repairs! Do you have a video that shows how to install a faucet that has one handle that goes to the right for cold,´╗┐ left for hot and middle for warm? The configuration is different and I don’t have the directions. (I actually need to make a repair – not install.) Thanks!

  5. I’m not a fan of teflon tape. I use pipe thread compound that contains teflon. The teflon tape being sold at the home centers is very suspect. I’ve received many complaints about failures´╗┐ resulting from that material.

  6. hahaha,
    That’s so sweet, I wish I´╗┐ had that title in this house hold.

    I have to “chuck a tantrum,” followed closely by the “silent treatment” to get my way round here.
    That can be a lot of effort sometimes.

  7. I’ve never had a problem with it. The husband figure did, but I *told* him to use the yellow stuff for his little portable air tank, however since he couldn’t find it (in plain sight in my shop) he used the plumbing tape so of *course* his tank wouldn’t hold pressure. He did fix´╗┐ it later after I handed him the gas tape. Now it’s all good :-).

  8. You have air in the veggie spray line. Turn on faucet and immediately push button on the veggie spray to get all air from the flexible´╗┐ hose.

  9. Haris, you’re most welcome. But I now need you to do me a favor. I need you and every YouTuber that watches this video to sign up for my´╗┐ newsletter. If you want me to continue to produce videos for you, I *need* more subscribers on my newsletter. It’s FREE for LIFE! What a great deal, right?

  10. If you want to see all my latest step-by-step videos, you need to go to the´╗┐ shopping cart at my AsktheBuilder website, the dot com one. You’ll see the cart icon at the top of the page. Once there, look on the left at the DIY Video Guides. Hundreds of new detailed videos are there waiting for you! I’m taping new videos all the time.
