Step 3: Install the New Faucet

  • Place the gasket or sealant around the base of the new faucet.

  • Insert the new faucet through the mounting holes and secure it in place using the mounting hardware and nuts.

  • Reconnect the water supply lines to the new faucet using your adjustable wrench.

Step 4: Test the New Faucet

  • Turn on the water supply valves under the sink and check for any leaks around the new faucet.

  • If there are any leaks, turn off the water supply and check the connections for tightness or use more plumber's putty or silicone sealant.

  • Finally, turn on the water supply and enjoy your new kitchen faucet!
