You MAY need a "basin wrench" which has a long bar and an end that grabs like a Stilson wrench.

I am attempting to install a new Danco P-Trap beneath one of my bathroom sinks. My frustrating problem is I am unable to screw the pvc drain pipe to the U joint. The gasket that comes with the kit makes it...


Assemble the hardest part first, but don't tighten it up. Connect the other parts, but don't tighten. Go back to your hardest piece and tighten. Then tighten the remainder.

When i move the spout sideways, the whole fixture turns instead


You need to tighten retaining nut on the underside of sink. You will probably need someone to hold faucet steady while you tighten nut. Yom may be able to use channel lock pliersor adjustable wrench. They can be hard to get to as there is not much room. If you have to you can get a basin wrench at most hardware stores. Usually around $15.00. The head will turn from 90 degrees on one side to 90 degrees on other. To use turn head so that open end of jaws are pointing to your right if you are laying on your back under sink.Open jaws and put around retaing nut and turn counterclockwise. This will tighten jaws around nut and you should be able to tighten nut. If you need to you can apply penetrating fluid on threads and get it to tighten. Hope this helps. Thanks

The base of the faucet which fastens to the top of the granite is loose and moves around. Is there a nut under the faucet that tightens to keep it firm to the granite? How do I fix this?


yes there is, with a pair of slip joints you can tighten from underneath, it is above the supply line, the best thing to do is turn off the water, disconnect the supply line and tighten the nut, then reconnect the supply line and turn back on the water. Good Luck Tim

How to install supply lines for Grohe k4 faucet


I hope this helps.
Step11Turn off the water supply. You'll find a shut-off valve under your kitchen sinkmag-glass_10x10.gif. Once the water is turned off, open up the kitchen faucets to allow the water remaining in the pipes to drain way. Step2Catch the drips by placing a bucket under the hot water supply line, located on the left side of your sink. Even a minimum of water can cause a mess and be potentially damaging. Step3Use a wrench to remove the compression nut that secures the hot water supply line. Let the disconnected section fall into the bucket. Use the wrench to loosen and remove the nut at the other end of the line and remove it as well. Step4Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the cold water supply line. Step5Replace the cold water supply line. Hand-tighten the nuts on both ends, then use the wrench to tighten the nuts completely. Repeat the process with the hot water supply line. Step6Turn on the water supply and test for leaks
