Did this video help you?

planktonchipz: Thank you for the video.

Mary Gault: A plumber came this morning and said he would charge $275 to install my new Kohler faucet. I said thank you, but no. And I found your tutorial. You saved me $275, but more important, you taught me a skill that I'll always have. And my faucet works beautifully. 

pei bossman: my one handle kitchen Fawcett keeps shutting off, the Fawcett handle falls down on its own and shuts off the water, what is wrong? thanks...

Nobel0 Jolarity: Wow, like for your hard work:) :).. Thanks dude.

Terry Kelly: Thank you. Very helpful.

TheBah12345: my large nut didn't use screws. It is screwed very tight. Any idea how to get it to budge?

ClassySexy82: Nice job, unfortunately this is too much work for me so i will pay someone to do it. Thanks for the upload.

Christopher Lamke: Thank you for the video. I used this to change out our old faucet.

kettanistar: I received a quote of $225 parts and labor to replace my kitchen faucet. Thanks to your video I saved $160..very greatful. Completed in 2 hours with one trip in between to Hime Depot. 

Vanesha Sidney: Why is one valve plastic and one valve medal?

Heidi Moss: Great video, really helped us change our old faucet, our first DIY project! Thank you!

Christopher Balagso: Thank you very much for posting this tutorial! I love DIYs and this really guided me through repairing our kitchen faucet. You were very clear on the instructions and most importantly, very straight to the point! Thanks again!

A Stanton1966: Regarding shutting off the water supply, I learned from a plumber on a call at my house, don't mess with those individual shut offs. Go to the main shut off, and kill that one. Also, I believe, if you are replacing a fixture that has shut offs over 15 years old, especially on well water, replace the shut offs too. I had my whole kitchen remodeled. And I'm mad at my plumber for not suggesting this.

TwiggyR: Thank you for this video! It was a great reference. =)

maewoo333: Thanks! sure helps to get a visual of how to do it on my own.

Arletta Paavola: Some times you feel like a nut, some times you don't. ..... .. . Thanks will use my old weight and not sure but don't think the universal kit came with a rubber and metal washer, mine is missing. Also received a 1/4" male end hose to connect to a 1/2" male receiver to attach the magnetic faucet head. not liking the continued supply part to do yet and not sure if my hot and cold fittings are compat. When I get rich I will hire a local plumber or my neighbor. but hey if I had your parts I'd be good to go except also a plate to hide the old holes. 

Nick Myers: Thanks. Just. Thanks. 

Tommy Stewart: I like that faucet. Where did you get It and how much?..As a note I would have replaced those shut off valves.

Andrew Sanders: i bought a faucet and watched your video, turns out we have great taste since i bought the same one. haha very helpful, thanks!

daniel miao: I fixed my faucet according to your video. really helpful, nothing professional. Thanks a lot. Please keeping doing your great work.

beautifuljoe1313: What if the old faucet has the three lines going into three different spots of the faucet, even though it's a single handle faucett? Will the center line, used for the old sprayer, be large enough for the three new lines in the center?

zerpBot: Just finished a few minutes ago changing an old faucet. What a hell, I must say this was my first and last time, the next time I'm calling an expert :P

Minu2s: thanks nice video.

Donald Vetick: Thanks for taking the time to post this. I installed a very similar model faucet yesterday, and my only problem is getting a wrench or plyers in the VERY tight space to tighten the large nut holding the faucet in place. I noticed that you just fiinger tightened your in the video, however I need to wrench tighten. A basin wrench is too big fit in the space- what I need is some sort of open ended socket. Any suggestions?

backyardmech: Great to hear that Palk - and thanks for commenting on the video.

pamalam601: Very detailed video! Easy to follow. Thanks SO much!! I feel very confident now!

backyardmech: Glad it helped Dreamer - thanks.

Peter Frantzis: 15:17 - with the use of a basin wrench tightening the nut is a breeze.

backyardmech: Good to hear Jay - thanks.

backyardmech: I hope the job went well Alison.

drowsydad: This made all the difference! Thank you. We replaced our kitchen faucet with no prior experience. This video was perfect.

Ohno Stracar: These are the nicest comments I have ever seen on a youtube video :3 you guys make me feel better about people in general <3

RobTheSamplist: i cant get the pipes attatched underneath off, there are no hoses its just copper pipe attcthed to the the nuts of the tap, HELP

backyardmech: You're right and glad you liked the video Mqhatts.

backyardmech: Thanks Lmn !

backyardmech: Thanks for commenting - and it's nice to know the video helped Drowsy .

backyardmech: And all the best to you Geeaiye - thanks for commenting.

Patricia Salvitti: Can't thank you enough for this video. Excellent job, I'm so grateful you took the time to show the details that you did. You took away my fear of doing it myself. I just saved myself over $300 today taking out an old Moen and putting in a new one! More important than the money saved, I didn't have to feel that I was held hostage by the plumber who's initial quote was over $800.

KEITH MELVIN: Great video. Thanks. I'm prepping to replace a faucet this info gave me the confidence.

Lior Carmi: I did it! Thank you so much for your help

backyardmech: Take your time Keith and i'm sure you'll do fine.

dyip32: just out of curiousity, did you use any sealant/caulking around the faceplate? I'm talking about that fascia piece that you installed first at 12:10. I noticed my old one had some sealant/caulking around that piece and I wasn't sure if it's needed or not. Thanks!! :)

backyardmech: You're welcome - take your time and good luck Suga.

geeaiye: One thing righty tighty lefty losey does not always work this video saved me.

Dave Gonzales: Hello im trying to replace my old kitchen faucet with a new onew has the a sprayer attached to the faucet i bought a universal kit for it but i cant seem to figure it out can someone please help me with this . thank you

backyardmech: Well done Fbks - and thanks.

backyardmech: I would have used a wrench to tighten it up Donald, though i didn't show it in the video. You're right to want to get it tight - otherwise you'll have the common 'loose faucet' after it's been used awhile. I think i may have used my ''really big adjustable' wrench - held almost vertically to get in there. It is a tight space-good luck.

backyardmech: Glad it helped Moe - thanks.

yap: I found this incredibly helpful. Many thanks.

backyardmech: Excellent - glad it worked out Rob.
