Kitchen Faucet Replacement

I recently purchased a new faucet which requires four holes in the sink (one for the hot water connection, one for the main faucet one for the cold water connection and one for the sprayer). Although my current sink configuration only has four holes and one of them is currently occupied with the dishwasher air gap. Are there any modifications I can make to relocate the dishwasher air gap without drilling an additional hole? Or is my best bet to purchase a different faucet which requires 3 holes?

Option 1 ; Cap off the sprayer.  Option 2 ; Relocate the air gap as high as possible under the sink but then you have no drain under it in case it backflows (it is really a vacuum breaker ,  one way check valve) Option 3: Take back the faucet and get one of those that the spout is also the sprayer.

Faucet leaking at tee where hot and cold connect to spout


The designs of the Kitchen Sink Faucet mainly exhibit differences in its handles and spouts. Differently curved spouts and handles diversify the range of products. Some have long spouts and some are with short ones. The spouting of water may also give different flow patterns with the external fixtures. The handles are mainly in single or double.

How do I fix my kitchen sink faucet?


he steps to replace a faucet are easy and nearly always the same. Here's how it works:
  • Shut off the water supply to the faucet. Usually, there are shut off cocks near the faucet but if not, you may have to shut the water off near your main line.
  • Remove the water feed lines from the faucet. You may wish to tag the hot water line "hot left" to take the guess work out of reconnecting.
  • Remove the faucet hold down washers or spin nuts. These washers are under the counter top. They spin onto two studs that you will see by looking behind the sink from below the faucet. The stud and washer configurations come in different styles and types but they all do the same work of holding the faucet in place. Your job is to get them loosened up so you can remove the old faucet. The distance between those studs is your "center distance" as mentioned earlier.
  • Once you have the faucet loose, it will be much easier to remove a sprayer line if there is one attached.
  • Clean the area once the faucet is removed.
  • Put the new, plastic faucet base plate in position.
  • If there is a sprayer, replace the base for it (included in the kit) and feed the new line down through the sprayer base and back up through the center hole where the faucet will mount. Attach that line to the new faucet.
  • Insert and firmly yet gently tighten the mounting studs into the bottom of the faucet base if they're not already.
  • Insert the faucet into the appropriate location on your sink and install the faucet hold down washers or spin nuts.
  • Reattach your water lines. Begin by lightly cleaning all threads with a soft cloth and then apply Teflon plumber's tape to the male threads of your connections Be careful not to cross thread anything when putting the connections together.
  • Reestablish water pressure and check for leaks. It always helps to have a spotter / helper for this step.
A new kitchen faucet always gives me a special DIY feeling because a new faucet looks good, operates easier and can even save a little water by providing quick, positive shut off. Take your time and survey the entire job before you start. With a little time and patience, you too can have a bright new faucet in your home kitchen.

Check the screen at the hose connection under the sink. Check the hoses for any large debris in them. Verify that the water pressure coming from the water outlets under the sink is good. There is obviously a restriction somewhere...you just need to locate it.

I have a kitchen sink faucet that is leaking water from the back part of the faucet. There is a hole there and the faucet leaks water, when the water is on. Why is it doing this?


If it is a rusted hole get new faucet, but on many faucets that is where the Sprayer connects. Check for loose Sprayer hose at faucet under the sink.

Kitchen Faucet 6310 020 White - HOT WATER SIDE NOT WORKING


The faucet cartridge is more then likely blocked and the faucet will have to be disassembled in order to unblock it.
While it is disassembled you should slowly turn on the water lines to make sure the water ways in the faucet are clear. And thoroughly check the cartridge for damage. Replace if necessary.
Replacement Cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or Big Box Stores such as Lowes or the like.

Kitchen faucet Installation


Many new faucets require some assembly before mounting to the sink; if that is the case, follow the manufacturer's directions. With most pullout sprayer faucets, the sprayer needs to be threaded through the faucet body first. Insert the rubber gasket between the base plate of the faucet and the sink top to create a watertight seal. If no gasket is provided, pack the cavity of the faucet with plumber's putty, then insert the faucet body through the holes in the sink top. Thread the mounting nuts provided onto the faucet shafts, then center the threaded shafts in the sink's holes and tighten the nuts firmly. Many manufacturers include a special long socket specifically to aid in tightening the mounting nuts. A hole in the socket accepts the shank of a screwdriver, guiding it as you tighten the nuts. If you're mounting the faucet on an installed sink, use this method. If you're installing a pullout sprayer faucet--or a faucet with a separate sprayer--now is the time to connect the sprayer to the faucet body. Check the manufacturer's directions to see if using pipe-wrap tape for this connection is recommended. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection. Most pullout sprayer faucets and faucets with separate sprayers come with a counterweight that attaches to the sprayer hose. This weight helps retract the hose back in to the sink cabinet after you've used the sprayer. Follow the manufacturer's directions on where to secure the weight, and take care not to crimp the hose as you attach the weight. Hook up the faucet's hot and cold supply lines to the water supply shutoff valves under the sink. If necessary, gently bend the copper tubes coming out of the faucet for better access and connect flexible supply tubes to them. Simply wrap a couple of turns of pipe-wrap tape around the threaded nipples on the valves and connect the tubes. Tighten the nuts with an adjustable wrench.
