Updated January 2020 By Danyal
When I was lived in Waterview Lane, I had a good relationship with Butch family.
Once, they were facing a problem with their existing faucet. They need to change current faucet as it was old and not working as well. They bought a brand new kitchen faucet. They needed to hire a plumber, but the cost of plumbing was very high for them.
Actually, it was not met with their budget. I suggested them to follow these steps, which I learned from a kitchen renovating workshop organized by a renowned kitchen brand.
I also helped them and finally, We installed the faucet. And the exciting matter was we did ZERO cost.
Here, I am going to type some steps of installing a brand new kitchen faucet and also how to remove old faucet. I hope you can easily install a faucet by following these steps.

Remove the Old Faucet
First turn off the sink water valves. Activate the tap to alleviate pressure within the lines. If applicable turn off the disposals power.
When you disconnect supply lines you may use a small bucket under the connections to catch water.
For loosing and removing the nuts holding the faucet when you use a basin wrench you need someone help to hold the faucet from the upper part of the cabinet.
Time to remove the old faucet with a soft hand. And remove any kind of grime and putty. For this task a putty knife is the best tool. Be extra sure about using a knife.
Install the New Faucet
Simply place the rubber or plastic gasket, or trim ring, over the faucet holes in the sink and set the deck plate.
