you have to locate the water shut off valves before you attempt removing the water lines, hopefully they will be located on the lines under your sink, if not you will have to shut the water main off coming into the house. After you have shut the water off and disconnected the lines, look under your sink at the back were your faucet comes through the sink and you will find the fasteners, unscrew these counter clockwise and the faucet will lift out .
Hi, most pull out sprayers have the hose hanging under sink, the one you had to pull to retract. They come with a weight that is to be installed at bottom of loop with sprayer in "parked" position. If there is no weight, that's the problem, if there is, make sure there is nothing in the way of full movement of this hose when it pulls into the parked position. It can sometimes also be something like a wood splinter, clamp, screw, pipe or other obstruction rubbing against your hose keeping it from falling properly (as longg as that weight is on it). Let me know if this helps! Thanks
Monique, I really do not have the real answer to why the acryllic ones break but there are many factors that contribute to it such as torque placed on it at the connection point with the stem and repeatred pushing and pulling on the handle due to normal use. The handles also contain an oil base in them and when that oil dissipates the handle becomes more brittle and less flexible. The other reason is simple physics. The force placed on the handle is all focused at the point where the stem contacts the handle and the screw attaches it to the stem.
As for installing your new faucet the only suggestion i would make is to make sure to use a thread sealant like Rectorseal. It is a paste like substance that comes in a can with a brush attached to the inside of the lid - you do not need alot of this placed on the thread just a thin coat as the directions imply or you will have a mess. Also if you have metal supply lines you may need new ones as the length needed may have bgecome greater. I recommend using the gray poly supplies as they are easy to cut to length.
Other than that it is a real simple process. Just remember the position you want the new pull up handle to be at to stop the sink as you may have it in a position that will not allow total closure.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and good luck.
If you have a lime problem, try soaking the tip in boiling water with vineger added to it. The acetic acid in the vineger disolves the lime. I did it just last week when I serviced my kitchen faucet. It may take quite a while for the lime to disolve, but in the end you will achieve your goal.
