Many people like to use the area under the sink for storage. If you do the same, we recommend that you remove all items before starting work so that you can use the hose connector. Here Songchang shares some guides for youself to remove the kitchen sink faucet below.
Step 1. Turn off the water supply
To shut off the water supply, you need to find the water supply system isolation valve. You will find it installed on the outlet end of the hose. Now just turn the industrial kitchen fauceta quarter to turn off the water. Try to drain the water and see if you shut it off properly. If your system does not have a separate isolation valve, turn off the water supply to the main faucet. Once you are 100% sure that there is no water circulating, you can proceed to the next step.
Step 2. Preparation area
Spread a towel under the sink and prepare all the tools you will be using. If you still have an old kitchen faucet instruction manual, turn it off. You may need to take a peek or two when trying to pull out an old faucet.
Step 3. Disconnect the faucet from the faucet water supply
There are two types of water pipe fittings: standard and flexible. If you are using a standard pipe system, loosen the screws that connect the joint to the pipe using an open-end wrench. After unplugging the flexible sink tap, water may flow out. For flexible pipe connections, you need to loosen the nuts where they are connected to the main pipe or to the installed isolation valve. To do this, use a pair of adjustable pliers to hold the connection or valve in place. Note that it may be difficult for you to loosen the nuts as they will get tighter over time.
Step 4. Remove the existing faucet
It's time to take the faucet off. First loosen the nut that secures the faucet to the surface. Grab the faucet and secure it in place. Make sure it does not turn when you try to unscrew the nut. The idea is to remove it from the stud so that you can remove the faucet and flexible hose together. Be very careful when disconnecting the aforementioned pipes, especially if they are stainless steel pipes. You don't want to cut yourself on sharp, pointy edges. After you have removed everything, please take a moment to clean up any troublesome residue or build-up from the open collector connection under the sink.
That's it! You have successfully removed the faucet from the kitchen! Still, if you find the whole process difficult, or just don't want to do it yourself, please rely on Songchang's faucet repair and replacement service! It's fast, easy and clean !
