You probably use your bathroom faucet every single day, but do you ever get tired of the way it looks? Or maybe, there is a leak, and the faucet just keeps on dripping, driving you nuts. If this is the case, you’ll be happy to know that replacing a faucet is fairly simple, something that you could even care for by yourself.

There are just a few simple steps to the removal process, which then need to be done in reverse to install a new faucet. As long as you feel pretty comfortable doing some handiwork on your own, the job can be taken care of fairly quickly and at a low cost.

There are a few things to keep in mind to make sure the job is a success. Always turn off the water before you start working on the faucet to make sure that you won’t have any catastrophic failures, and don’t over-tighten any hardware, since this can damage your sink.

So, what are the steps to removing/reinstalling your faucet?

Remove water-lines from your faucet, unscrew nuts that hold it in place, if there is a stopper in your sink, disconnect the lift rod from it and finally, remove the faucet. Simple as that. Now all you have to do is install the new faucet.
