The faucet in your bathroom might have been there for decades. Over time, it is inevitable that wear and tear will cause it to break down. Maybe it has started to drip, or maybe it is very loose. While you might think that replacing a faucet is a lot of work, it is not very complicated. If you are at least slightly comfortable around tools, you could take care of it yourself. It is however important that you avoid the most common mistake homeowners do when working on their plumbing. Do not forget to turn off the water supply before you start working!

The first step is to disconnect the water supply lines from the bottom of the faucet. If you have a cabinet underneath the sink, make sure you empty it out first to give yourself room to work. Underneath the sink, there will also be nuts that hold the faucet in place. Your last step to take care of while you’re under the sink is to disconnect the lift rod that is connected to the stopper in your drain. Not all sinks have one of these, but if yours does, it needs to be disconnected before the faucet can be disconnected. After you have done all these steps, you can just do everything in reverse to install the new sink.
