Tips and ideas for replacing and repairing bathroom faucets. Post your ideas.
THIS IS IMPORTANT.
When you replace older bathroom faucet, remember the industry is going through a lot of design change.
Make sure you know what size and number of holes you have in your sink before you puchase or try to install a new faucet. The new ones don't always fit the old holes, even if they say they do, even if your plumber orders it for you.
For the first step, turn off the water, and remove the old faucet parts above the sink. Make a little template of the holes before you shop. Look at the specs/schematics for the faucet before you buy it. That way, you know if it will fit.
Some sinks may be redrilled, but most plumbers are afraid of the sink cracking from the heat. Then you'lll need a new sink and possibly a cabinet. Talk about a BIG jump from the first estimate! EPAR! (That's spelled backwards. hahaha)
Hope this helps.
