Hello Everyone. Thank you to those who have reached out. I appreciate it. Therefore, after I have received a few questions on how to replace a kitchen faucet. I decided to review a step by step process of removing and installing a new kitchen faucet.

First thing is to kill the water under the kitchen sink. Clear the entire space under your sink so nothing gets wet in the event that some water drips from the connectors (this will happen). Every sink framework is distinctive yet you ought to see some kind of handle. Mine is really new and was anything but difficult to identify. You will see two handles for both hot and cool water lines. Turned them both clockwise to turn off the water flow. Second, disconnect the water lines from each valve, utilizing a wrench.

Third, there will be a nut holding the fixture set at the base, under the counter all the way up in that is staggeringly hard and cumbersome to reach. Get a couple pads to place under you, and get a headlamp on the off chance that you have one. Since each fixture is distinctive the nut sizes will be different too. You may need to attempt an assortment of tools to have the capacity to get the nut free. For my faucet, there were two nuts under the sink. I utilized two wrenches hanging on the screws to slacken it. To remove the faucet, they should include the tool you can use to loosen the nut, which was exceptionally helpful. Save this tool after you’re done in the event that you want to remove the fixture at a later date.

Finally, once the nut is removed you ought to have the capacity to push the whole unit up and take the faucet out. With the sprayer fixture unit, you have an additional hose down underneath the sink which ought to be detached, making it less difficult to push up through. What’s more, it additionally has a weight on it which you have to remove too. On my specific fixture was crimped from the factory and wasn’t going to detach. So I needed to jimmy it (an extremely troublesome task) to get the nut off every one of the threaded pipes. Most faucets have a pressure installation with the sprayer hose–all you need to do to is push a little bit of plastic in the right heading.

Look at the next post for step by step installation instructions. Please let me know what you think after following this tutorial.

Hi there, my name is Michael. I am a lifelong learner of all things that apply to home improvements. I have learned most of my skills from my grandfather and father. However, within the last several years I have used the world wide web to expand my skill set. The internet gives me the opportunity to search and watch videos from experienced individuals who appreciate the value in teaching others.

My main objective here is to share my knowledge, experience, and provide value to all who have the interest in broaden their knowledge base with valuable information that will safely help you take a part, install, remove, clean, fix, and troubleshoot almost anything that is inside your residence or home. Please bear in mind that you are one hundred percent responsible for any action you take. I am not a licence professional, therefore, I am not responsible for any possible errors you might make. If you are unsure about anything please consult a licence professional.

Today, I am going to start with the best all natural product to clean your hands with after working with oil or grease. Most of us who work in the garage at home know that grease and oil is greatly apart of this environment. Yes, there are plenty of effective cleansers that do a decent job in removing oil, grease, and grime. However, when you are constantly washing your hand with those types of cleansers you may notice some irritation, drying, and cracking of the skin. This maybe due to the ingredients or the frequency of hand washing.

Now, what if I told you there is a NATURAL way to clean your hands after working with grease and grime. True, that probably would not be a huge surprise. Right? Well, what if the product is mainly composed of “dirt”. That’s right, dirt! For those who do not know dirt is an excellent natural cleanser and there are many all natural industrial cleaners on the market but none of them are made of dirt and one hundred percent biodegradable except one, Grip Clean.

Grip clean is a all natural industrial cleaner that removes oil and grease from your hands. This revolutionary product completely made of dirt. In addition, it is one hundred percent all natural and biodegradable. That right there is revolutionary. There is no other product on the market like that. It is not to rough on your skin but is still coarse enough to get the most stubborn grease and oil stains off of your hands.

I tested Grip Clean with grease, motor oil, and air filter oil and the results were amazing, it removed everything! The smell of this product is nice and pleasant. The bottle design is not round so it fits in your hand without slipping out. My favorite part about this soap is does not dry your skin like other industrial hand soaps because grip clean is also a natural moisturizer.

So, for all you guys (and gals) who work around the garage or the house and expose yourself to grease, grime, and / or oil. I highly recommend using Grip Clean for your hand cleansing needs. If you buy the product on my recommendation, drop me a line and tell me how do you like it.

Until next time….
