Step-01: Turn off The Valves Of The kitchen And Locate the Water Supply line
Before starting, turn off your kitchen sink valves. I know it is crucial to do that. Suppose you have two valves, such as hot and cold. Consider turning them both off. Sometimes the hot and cold water supply lines are closed as a protective measure.
Turning off the valves may help to get over-flooded in your kitchen areas. You can place a bucket beneath for collecting the un-necessary water that might come out.
Step-02: Open Your Kitchen Sink’s Spigot
Sometimes your kitchen faucet may hold some air pressure inside. This kind of air pressure may get problematic for you. Open your kitchen sink’s spigot.
Let your spigot open to flow these air pressures outside. You will notice that some air bubbles are releasing after opening it. This work assures the tap will be lighter and more comfortable to remove.
Step-03: Disconnecting the Water Piping
Our third step is disconnecting the water piping of your kitchen sink. This task will divide into two sections. One is to remove water piping lines, and the other is to remove the faucet. A waterline is directly connected to the kitchen faucet.
If you want to fix the faucet or install a new one, you need first to cut out the supply line. For cutting the water pipeline, use a pump pillar to detach it. Pump pliers work smoothly and are an essential tool that keeps you tension free using it while working. Next, pull out the water pump pliers to the waterline.
Carefully pull off each line of the sink. The consistency varies depending on the age of your faucet. You should do this task with intense care as some parts are getting damaged. Either use an adjustable wrench or channel lock pliers to disconnect water supply lines. After removing the water lines then go through the next steps.
Step-04: Disconnect the Water Faucet Morning Nuts / Screws
Our fourth step is sometimes getting so irritated. It’s just because the faucets are made of steel. And the water contains minerals. Minerals are responsible for blocking or rusting the mounting nuts. To avoid this, you should use some penetrating oil or some grease on the mounting nuts.
You should wait for 10-15 minutes to smooth out the process. Morning nuts are used to secure the faucet sink. Now unscrew the nuts and remove them, which are holding the faucet together. It is better to use a socket wrench for doing this.
Do not pressurize it more until the faucet gets broken or damaged. Use a screwdriver in contrast to a twist if your faucet has screws.
Step-05: Disconnect and Remove the Kitchen Hose
At this stage, you have to disconnect the nuts and screws from the tap. Keep them safe, and then disconnect the sink hose. Wear gloves and check the condition of the faucet. Suppose your kitchen faucet is looking so dirty.
Now it’s time to remove the kitchen faucet from your sink. Please place it in a safe place if you don’t want to remove it for a while. We then divided the parts from the faucet. And remove it one by one. It will make your work easier and faster.
After removing them, clean them gently. You can use some grease or oil to lose things smoothly. Use it again in your kitchen if it looks so good. In that time, you have to install it again after cleaning all of the parts. Install them one by one in a pattern of mounting nuts, water lines, and valves.
You can use a putty knife to lose it gently. If your putty knife becomes so sticky, you can use a plastic putty knife or any flat scraper. Plastic putty knives or scrapers will help to lose the faucet. It will prevent the faucet from any damage and scratching. After settling the tap, clean it with a wet towel or cloth.
You can use a tile cleaner for doing this task. After following these steps, reconnect your kitchen faucet and check its suitability.
