Hello...

My ex husband recommended this forum to me...I hope someone can help!

I have a house that I just purchased, and I want to replace the bathroom faucet. I'm sort of familiar with the procedure, and feel confident enough doing it, but I CANNOT REMOVE THE OLD FAUCET!

I think that it may be welded on or something, given that I have been killing myself trying to remove it, but I will leave it to the experts...

Thank you...

Mary in Toronto

From looking at the pictures the plumber who installed this faucet used female threaded by sweat fittings the only way to remove the faucet is to cut the pipe or unsweat the fitting . cutting the pipe would be easier . after sutting off the water cut the pipe 8 inches below the sink unscrew the ends attached to the faucet , remove the large nuts holding the faucet lift the faucet out . buy two 3/8 x 12 inch stainless steel flexible faucet hoses and two 3/8 x 5/8 o.d. compression fittings and install.
