INSTALLING FAUCETS

There are many types and styles of faucets. When attaching a single or combination faucet to a lavatory or sink, follow the manufacturer's instructions. All faucets are attached to a lavatory/sink in basically the same manner. Use the following steps to install a single or combination faucet (see Figure 7):

  1. Apply plumber's putty to the bottom of the faucet.
  2. Set the faucet in the holes provided for the faucets.
  3. From under the lavatory/sink, slide a washer on each threaded end, and screw the locknuts on until they are hand-tight.
  4. Using a basin wrench, tighten the locknuts.
  5. Wipe off all excess plumber's putty around the base of the faucet.

NOTE:  If the combination faucet comes with a gasket, plumber's putty is not applied to the base.
