Hi gt_elijah.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know if there any way to tighten a faucet on a kitchen sink?

Yes! All faucets have to be secure, but there are as many diferent methods as there are diferent manufacturers. If you are unfamiliar with the diferent methods then you might not recognize the screw, nut, bolt or fitting when you look at it. Also, for many, a special tool is required. It might be wise to have someone local look at it.

A "basin wrench" is the special tool you need. They are pretty cheap. Any hardware or home improvement store carries them. They might even have them at Walmart.

Hi While I try to rotate the tap , the whole base is rotating with it ( delta 470 ss)


A "basin" wrench will be needed to get up under the sink/faucet base to tighten the nuts that hold the faucet in place. It's a simple job but requires the agility of a contortionist to get at.

FITTING A BASIN


I am guessing you have the square one then. You need to fit your waste as normal, Send the waste through a hole in the surface you are placing the sink on and make your connections underneath. I use plumbers mait as a sealant when tightening the outlet. You then need to think about your taps. Since they are totally separate from the sink you can use what you want. Most people would use a monobloc riser though, secured to whatever surface you are laying the sink on.
You don't say how much you need to know about connections / plumbing etc. Please ask again if you are stuck with these.

It appears that the seal at the base of the tap is worn or the screw collar is loose - try hand-tightening it. It may cure your problem. Plumbers tape is a white tape that helps seal water pipe joints!
