basics that you should know about faucet replacement.
Being Prepared And Choosing Your Faucet
Before you go off with the replacement proper procedures, you should be ready and have with you the faucet unit that you want to use to replace your old one. You can drop by your local hardware store and pick out a faucet that you want. Having it on hand before removing the old one would make things easier and faster for you.
With the numerous modern designs now at the market, you have a variety of faucet designs that you can choose from. For your bathtubs and sinks, you can get a single or double-handled faucet. Generally, faucets have a standard size regarding their hook-ups, depending on their use. For kitchen faucets, you can usually find units with an 8-inch hookup. Bathroom vanity faucets usually come in 4 inches, while bathtubs come in 8 inches.
In able to know which kind of faucet to get from the store, first, you have to do some measurements.
Have your tape measure in hand for this task. If you will be using a double-handled faucet, what you need to do is take the measurement from the handles’ center to center, thus, this is your faucet’s size. If you will be using a single-handled faucet, you would have to measure starting from the distance in between your water hook-up lines placed on your faucet’s bottom.
As soon as you know the style and size of your faucet, then you’re already to take out the old one and install your new unit.
