[MUSIC PLAYING] So, Chris, are you ready to get this old
faucet out and get a nice new one in? Yeah, let’s do it. All right. Well, the first thing we want

need some penetrating oil or lubricant. And if you don’t have a shutoff
valve, cut the water off outside. OK, got it. Now that the water’s
off, turn the faucet on and release any pressure
in the water lines. Next, with an adjustable wrench,
disconnect the hot and cold supply lines. Supply lines are used to
transport water to the faucet. And if they’re worn, you’ll
probably need to replace them, but these look pretty good. After you’ve disconnected
the supply lines, unscrew the mounting nuts from
the bottom of the sink where the best faucet meets the counter. And finally, disconnect the
lift rod for the drain plug. Now that we’ve got

kinds of gunk in there. You know, we could take a putty knife,
or maybe even some household cleaner, and clean this up. OK, let’s do that. All right, we’re all cleaned up. We’re ready for that new faucet. Get that lined up. Let’s get ready to set that in. Just press that down firmly. All right, that looks great. Now, this one has a gasket, but some
models might need silicone or caulk. OK. Now that the faucet is in place,
let’s tighten the mounting nuts. Just a few more steps,
and we’re almost finished. OK. All right, let’s
reattach the supply lines and then tighten them
with an adjustable wrench. Don’t forget to reattach
the lift rod to the drain. All right, we’re finally ready to turn
the water back on and check for leaks. water filter for pull out faucet OK. [WATER RUNNING] How’s it looking down there? It’s looking good. No leaks. All dry. Perfect. If you find any leaks, turn off the
