What are the tools required to install the faucet?

I think this is a very important starting point and can really show how easy it is to install the faucet. In my opinion, if you decide to take the DIY route, it is very important to understand your purpose.


The first thing you need to know is the tools needed for the job. So let's talk about what will actually happen in this project.


If I was only allowed to use one tool to complete this work, but I had to choose, I would choose the channel lock pliers every time.


The brass bathroom faucets requires nuts, washers, and the surface to be installed (table top) to keep it rigid and in place. In order for water to flow out of its end, it also needs a connection to the water supply.

Some sinks require a lever to plug the drain, while others simply press the drain plug to pop it into place. The lever I'm talking about is just something you pull up behind the matte black bathroom faucet to block the drain hole.


According to my experience, the lever plug only needs to be installed by hand. But I can see that some people may need to use pliers to tighten certain parts.


Pliers are great for screwing nuts to such an extent that your hands simply cannot be grasped by using levers and the "teeth" at the end of the tool.


Another version of the pliers dedicated to this work is the basin wrench. It works on the same principle as the pliers, but allows you to work in a tighter space.


It does this by placing the lever part of the tool at the bottom, and its teeth (or handle) at the top.


If you are dealing with a small space behind the bathroom tap sets sink, you can simply adjust this tool to fit a certain length, and then twist it at the bottom, this will be the area where you have working space.


I suggest you also prepare a toothless pliers or crescent wrench. You may also need to adjust the esthetic part of the bronze bathroom faucet. Using something without teeth can really help maintain the appearance of the fixture.

For many bathroom faucets, it doesn’t take much to scratch the outside, so you really need to be careful, you can usually buy them for around US$10-20 each.


The space under the sink can be very dark and dull. When I am engaged in trading, I always use the flashlight function of my mobile phone to illuminate the space, but you can easily pick up the flashlight to achieve the purpose.


As mentioned previously, the bathroom shower requires some form of nut and washer to hold it into place on your counter top. To access these, you will need to go below your sink and into the dark abyss.



You may need to clean your area out before you begin installing vanity faucet, as it is always easier to maneuver around in an empty space.


Some surfaces below a sink may also be dirty, so I would either recommend cleaning them up first or wearing older clothes that you don’t care much for.
