Lever Valve

How do you install a new kitchen sink faucet?

My kitchen sink currently has a hot & a cold knob, and a spout...pretty old fashioned. I want to go and get an up to date faucet with a single lever valve and a detachable spout to rinse dishes, etc. but have never installed one before. What do I do?

Spirit gives you a great answer. I'd just like to add my two cents. This equates to some labor, but might save you some knuckle crunching.

If possible do all the suggested up to shutting off the water and disconnecting the flex tubing to the faucet base, where it connects at the valve. Keep in mind, This is my own opinion and not what others might suggest.

I very often remove the entire sink, when possible, flip it over, allowing me easy access to any hardware that holds the faucet in place. With the faucet detached, and if you feel it neccesary to match the faucet "Foot Print"; take the faucet with you when purchasing another.

Once you've done that and are at the work site again, attach the faucet to the sink, add NEW flex tubing and all NEW hardware supplied, including new compression washers for the down drain, then set the sink back and attach it or clamp it, in whatever way it was to begin with. Reconnect the flex tubing fittings, turn on the water taps, then the faucet taps and proceed.

Certainly you can spend more time on your back, perhaps even with a specific, swivel plumbing wrench, designed for tight places. I just offered MY way, and I'm usually off that kind of job in half the time I'd otherwise be cussing while trying to hold a flashlight in my mouth, stripping the hardware with lock jaw pliers, and ending with a headache.
