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.
Vanesha Sidney: Why is one valve plastic and one valve medal?
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
Heidi Moss: Great video, really helped us change our old faucet, our first DIY project!
Christopher Lamke: Thank you for the video. I used this to change out our old faucet.
TwiggyR: Thank you for this video! It was a great reference. =)
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.
maewoo333: Thanks! sure helps to get a visual of how to do it on my own.

since i bought the same one. haha
very helpful, thanks!
daniel miao: I fixed my faucet according to your video. really helpful, nothing
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
Minu2s: thanks nice video.
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
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
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

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
KEITH MELVIN: Great video. Thanks. I'm prepping to replace a faucet this info gave me the
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
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.
backyardmech: No problem Rohan . Sometimes a little extra information is all someone
needs to finish a job..
geeaiye: Thank you God bless did it myself felt like a million dollars. Wish you all
backyardmech: Yes, use sealant Dyip - it's a good idea but not a necessity. I used
plumbers putty under it but forgot to show it in the vid.
Ram Palkodaty: This video is awesome!, My old faucet is exactly the same as shown in the
video, replacing was a breeze even without prior experience. Thanks a lot
for helping starters like me with your wonderful video!
backyardmech: That's good to hear Nagan - thanks.
backyardmech: Good to know it helped Lior - thanks.
RobTheSamplist: thanks for the reply , phoned an old plumber friend and he done what you
said in about 5 minutes for nothing :) thanks though it will help someone
else im sure.
