Faucets Fixtures and Repair

When it's time to hook up your new faucet, flexible supply tubes make connecting it much easier because no cutting or fitting of lines is required.
Clean the surface where the new faucet will sit and insert the rubber gasket between the faucet's base plate and the sink top to create a watertight seal. If no gasket is provided, seal the perimeter of the faucet base with plumber's putty, and then insert the tailpieces through the holes in the sink top.
If your faucet has water-supply tubes already attached to the tailpieces, as shown, feed them through the middle sink hole and press the faucet into position on the sink. From the underside, then tighten the nuts firmly with a wrench.
For split-set faucets, like the one shown, you'll need to connect the valves to the spout. Before you connect them with the flexible hoses supplied, then thread them on by hand, and finish by tightening with an adjustable wrench.
