Want to replace your kitchen faucet? It’s a job for which you could hire a plumber, or, with just a little bit of craftsman skill, it’s a project you could finish yourself.
Watch this video from the Lowe’s YouTube channel. You’ll get step-by-step instruction on how to take out an old faucet and how to install a new one. The supplies you’ll need are minimal, too.
In 3 minutes, the video covers:
- How to shut the kitchen water supply off and drain residual water from the pipes
- How to detach and remove the old kitchen faucet
- How to align the new faucet and reconnect to the water lines
There’s some good tips along the way, too, including how to make sure you don’t accidentally connect the hot water supply to the cold-water faucet.
