These days, people are more interested in Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects than ever before. While it’s very important to hire a professional for significant issues, projects, or renovations, there are some relatively simple things that any typical homeowner can handle for themselves. One relatively simple upgrade that can have a significant impact on your daily routine is a new faucet in your kitchen or bathroom.
Of course, we don’t want to discourage you from hiring a professional plumber, and if you do decide to do it yourself, please be sure to read the instructions! However, the overall process of installing a typical faucet is pretty simple. You start, of course, by turning off the water supply to the existing faucet. Once that’s done, you can remove the old one, along with the connected drain, if applicable. In most cases, there aren’t many surprises here. Then, install the new faucet and drain by attaching it to the mounting holes and tightening the nuts. Reconnect the water supply lines, and you should be in business.
