DISCOUNT KITCHEN SINKS

The sink always been the kitchen's primary workstation, making the choice of bowl (configuration and material) and faucet a highly individual preference. When planning and upgrade, go for tough materials and big scale (deeper, broader bowls, higher-spouted faucets), both of which add up to convenience. The debate over kitchen sink materials centers on three key characteristics: durability, noise-dampening capacity, and ease of maintenance. Choose Our Discount Sinks Collection

Replace Faucets. How to install faucets.

Your faucets may not match your decor, and having new bathroom fixtures installed can be expensive. You can save a great deal of money by installing a new fixture yourself.

What do you need to install new faucets?
Basin cock wrench
Phillips - and flat-head screwdrivers
Slip-joint pliers
Adjustable pliers
Adjustable wrench
Teflon paste (or Teflon tape)
Bathroom caulk and caulk gun
New supply tubes

  • Turn off the water supply at the valves under the sink or at the main water supply valve.

  • Loosen the supply tubes at the hot and cold valves.

  • Use the basin wrench to loosen and remove the compression nut at the faucet stem.

  • Remove the nut holding the faucet to the sink, and remove the faucet.

* If your new faucets include a new pop-up for the drain, you may want to replace this as well. If you replace the pop-up assembly, be sure to place a bucket under the drain to prevent spills. Also, it's a good idea to replace any older chrome-plated brass hardware because of its tendency to deteriorate over time.

Remove the existing pop-up drain

  • Remove the nut above the P-trap and loosen the nut attached to the P-trap.

  • Remove the pop-up lever from the drain.

  • Loosen the lock nut holding the drain to the sink.

  • Unscrew the drain and the drain flange.

Install the new bathroom faucet and drain pop-up

  • Place Teflon paste or tape on the faucet stems.

  • If your bathroom faucet includes a rubber gasket, install it on the base of the faucet before inserting the faucet stems in the appropriate holes in the sink. If your faucet doesn't include a gasket, run a line of caulk under the faucet before installing it.

  • Secure the nuts holding the faucet to the sink. Tighten the nuts by hand and then give them another quarter-turn with the basin wrench.

  • Connect the supply tubes to the faucet stems.

  • Apply Teflon paste to the shutoff valve threads, and tighten the coupling nuts to the faucet supply stems. Be sure not to overtighten.

  • Apply caulk to the underside of the drain flange, and press it into the drain hole.

  • Place the lock nut on the drain housing, then place the metal washer and the gasket onto the housing.

  • Screw the drain housing tightly to the flange. If the flange begins to rotate, hold it steady by inserting the plastic handle of your pliers.

  • Drop the pop-up drain into place, keeping the hole for the control pin toward the rear of the sink.

  • Place the bail lever in the side hole of the drain assembly so that the control pin fits through the appropriate hole in the pop-up drain.

  • Set the drain rod into the hole in the faucet, and attach the connecting link to the faucet rod by tightening the attached screw. Make sure the pop-up is up and the drain rod is down; then attach the bail lever to the connection link using the V-clip. The pop-up should go down when the lever is pulled up.

  • Attach the new drain extension to the P-trap.

  • Clean the supply tubes by removing the aerator from the faucet and turning on the water. While the water is running, check for leaks. Shut the water off after you are certain there are no leaks, and replace the aerator.

What Kind of Faucets?

Single-hole and single-lever faucets integrate the spout and mixing handle or handles into one fitting. Compact and easy-to-use, they require only one faucet hole drilling. Some faucets will include an optional six-inch cover plate for existing four-inch drill installations.
Centerset faucets for standard four-inch drill installations handles mounted onto a six-inch plate. These are recommended for smaller, pre-existing, pre-drilled basins.
Widespread faucets offer the greatest design flexibility. A mini-widespread faucet has three separate pieces in a smaller, standard four-inch drilling. A widespread faucet has a standard spread or drilling of at least eight inches.
Wall-mounted faucets for above-the-counter and freestanding basins require a longer spout for extended reach.
In the bath, the faucet is typically set in either 4” or 8” width configurations. In the 4” set you can have a centerset or mini widespread setup; if it’s 8” or more, it is known as a widespread set. When you choose your new faucet, you can change styles, but will have to stay with the same size, or replace the sink if you want to switch.
