Installing a bathroom faucet are usually easy or quite difficult to install, determined by your access to the plumbing. In case you are installing a bathroom faucet in a new bathroom sink, odds are the task will be easy since you can put in the components ahead of placing the sink.

 How to install a new bath faucet

Whether you buy an single piece bath faucet or a split set which the handles are 8 inches apart. Check to see what the hole spread is, its either 4 inches or 8 inches now you know what kind of bath faucet to buy and install. Before we remove the old bath faucet or install the new faucet you should turn off the water at the shut off valves. Now you can take off the old bath faucet you will need a basin wrench to remove the nuts at the water supply. Now pull out the old bath faucet. Before I put in the new bath faucet I would hook up the flexible water tubes to the bottom of the faucet. It makes the job much easier.

 

 

1. Now that you have taken out the old bath faucet clean the top where the old faucet was. Take the new faucet and put the rubber gasket on the bottom of your new faucet if there is no gasket you will need to put plumbers putty in the faucet base.

 

2. All the new bathroom faucets come with a pop up seal that allows you to open and close the drain by pulling up on a rod that is behind the spout. Remove the stopper from your faucet tailpiece, and then install the tailpiece therefore the pop up faces the spout. Connect the pop up mechanism to the tailpiece of the faucet, taking then thread the pivot rod into the opening at the bottom on your drain stopper. A spring clip on the end of your pivot rod will grip the lift rod.
