General Faucet Installation Instruction

 

Step 1: Position the Faucet

 

 

●Begin installing your faucet by placing the gasket and faucet in position on the sink. (Diagram A)
●From under the sink, thread the plastic mounting nuts onto the faucet shanks. Be sure the large side of each plastic mounting nut is up. (Diagram B)
●From the top of the sink, check the faucet and gasket position. (Diagram C)
●From under the sink tighten the mounting nuts, making certain not to over-tighten which could damage the nuts and make them difficult to remove in the future. (Diagram D)

 

Step 2: Attach the Water Supply Tubes

 

 

●Water is typically supplied to the faucet through water-supply tubes.
●Wrap the threads of the water-supply valve with Teflon tape. Although most plumbers use only Teflon tape, some plumbing supply manufacturers also recommend using plumber’s putty. (Diagram A)
●Thread the water supply nut onto the shut-off valve. Tighten the nut with a wrench. (Diagram B)
●Wrap the threads on the faucet shank with Teflon tape, and then thread the water supply nut onto the faucet shank. (Diagram C)
●Tighten the nut with a basin wrench. (Diagram D)

 

Step 3: Connect the Faucet Lift Rod

 

 

●From the top of the sink, insert the lift-rod into the faucet. (Diagram A)
●From under the sink, make sure the pivot-rod is in the down position. Insert the lift-rod into the lift-rod strap. Tighten the screw.
●From the top of the sink, make sure the lift-rod opens and closes the drain plug as desired. (Diagram B)
●Make any needed adjustments by loosening the lift-rod strap screw and repositioning the lift-rod.
●If you need to connect the lift-rod strap to the pivot rod, slide one end of the spring clip onto the pivot-rod.
●Make sure that both the pivot -rod and the lift-rod are in the down position. Insert the pivot-rod in the closest hole in the lift-rod strap.
●Slide the other end of the pivot-rod. Make sure the lift-rod opens and closes the drain plug as desired.
●Make minor adjustments by loosening the lift-rod strap screw and repositioning the lift-rod. (Diagram C)
●Make major adjustments by removing the spring clip and moving the pivot-rod to a different hole in the lift-rod strap.

 

Step 4: Flush the Faucet

 

 

●Anytime you work on plumbing, filings, chips, and other debris can fall into the plumbing pipes.
●This debris can damage the sealing surfaces inside the faucet and cause leaks.
●Remove aerator and black sealing gasket above it.
●Before turning on the water supply, make sure the faucet handles are open (on position) in order to remove the debris without causing damage. (Diagram A)
●Open both water supply valves under the sink. (Diagram B)
●Allow the water to run for 15 seconds. (Diagram C)
●Close the faucet handles (turn off).
●Make sure any debris is cleaned from the aerator screen. (Diagram D)
●Replace the aerator. (Diagram E)
