Why should I hire a pro to do my faucet installation?
Faucet installation or faucet replacement seem like they would be easier to complete than they often are. First, the job requires the purchase of a few specialized tools to do it well. Secondly, you’ll need to determine how the water is connected to the faucet, and then shut it off from the shutoff valves, if possible, or main water supply to the house, if there aren’t shutoff valves. Finally, once the old faucet comes off, a pro can best evaluate the condition of the pipes and fasteners hidden beneath the faucet, determine if they need to be repaired, and then possibly repair the pipes if needed so that the faucet installation is successful. Also, faucet installation often requires removing other fixtures, like a garbage disposal and P-trap, and pipes under the sink to access the drain lines and faucet fittings.
Buying the right faucet:
The first critical step to a successful faucet installation or faucet replacement is to purchase the right faucet to fit your space. The right faucet will have openings that align with those already in your sink or counter, so that the faucet you purchase will appropriately fit in the space left behind by your old faucet. Faucets typically have between 1 and 4 holes to fit the different options in your sink or counter, and the number of sink accessories - like sprayers and soap dispensers - in your sink setup. Make sure you purchase a faucet with the number of spaces that fits your space and your needs to help make sure your faucet installation goes without a hitch.
