Step 1 – Inspect The Faucet
The first thing you need to do is inspect the faucet and make sure there’s nothing wrong with it before you proceed towards the installation.
You need to make sure that your faucet is going to match the holes in your kitchen sink. This shouldn’t be a problem unless you have a really old sink and you are installing a new faucet.
Each faucet has a different way of mounting. This particular faucet uses posts that need to be tightened.
Now that we have mounted the faucet, we need to tighten the post nuts. Make sure you don’t secure them way too tight as you may have to adjust the faucet to make sure it is centered.
You can do any minor adjustments if you want and make sure that the faucet is centered and looks good.
Now we are ready to install the supply lines. I am using stainless steel lines with slip joints. You can hand tighten the slip joints.
Once we are done with hand tightening them, we need to make sure that they fit nicely using a crescent wrench. Please don’t over tighten the nuts to avoid damaging the threads.
Now that we are done with tightening, we need to turn the valves slowly. Once done, we are ready to test if our faucet works as intended.
