How to Install a Kitchen Faucet
Fortunately, installing a kitchen faucet is now a DIY project, thanks to manufacturers simplifying the process. Pretty much everything required for the install comes with the kitchen faucet. Occasionally, a kitchen faucet will require a special tightening tool, and that’s something the manufacturer will provide.
Note: These are general instructions and the actual instructions may vary slightly across manufacturers. Always refer to the installation instructions issues by the manufacturer.
Step by Step Instructions
If you’re installing a single-hole faucet, insert the spout base and water line through the hole in the sink.
If your kitchen faucet includes an escutcheon plate, apply some plumber’s putty beneath the edges of the plate, align the hole(s), and press gently into place. Wipe away any excess plumber’s putty.
