How We Will Replace Your Faucet
Replacing a faucet may seem like a simple enough task, but it requires a lot of steps to do. Our technicians have the training and skills to not only safely replace your old faucet, but to make sure that your new faucet is properly installed.
The following are the steps we will take to replace your old faucet:
- Disconnecting the old faucet – This involves disconnecting the supply lines, the lift rod, the P-trap, and the drain flange.
- Cleaning the area – Once everything is disconnected and removed, the areas around the faucet holes and old drain will need to be cleaned.
- Installing the new faucet – Depending on the type of faucet we’re installing, we may need to use some kind of sealant or plumber’s putty. We will then install the gasket so that the faucet can be attached and secured with mounting nuts.
- Assembling the faucet – Not all faucets come pre-assembled, which means we may need to attach the handles.
- Installing the other components – We’ll need to install the gasket, screw the flange on and insert the drain rod.
- Reconnect the supply line – Once the faucet is completely installed, we will connect your supply line to the new faucet.
Once the faucet is completely installed and the supply line is reconnected, we will test the faucet to make sure it works properly. An improperly installed faucet can result in leaks and other problems.
