How do I identify make / model of this kitchen faucet?

Inspect your sink. Check to see how many openings there are and how far apart they are. You may have to look underneath to be sure. For bathroom faucets, in particular, the two handles may be joined with the spout to become a single unit or they may be spread apart from it. You will need this information to choose the correct replacement.

2

Obtain a replacement faucet.

You'll probably be using this faucet for a long time, so it's worth investing in a good-quality faucet.

It's possible to spend anywhere from about $20 to $500 and above on a faucet. Read reviews and decide for yourself how much of what you are paying is for quality and how much is for designer names/styling and fancy features.

3

Review the instructions that come with the faucet. They can range from detailed and helpful to minimal and frustrating. When in doubt, defer to the manufacturer's instructions rather than those you find elsewhere.

When deciding among modern kitchen faucets, look for a quality brand name manufacturer. A chrome plated brass or stainless steel model of faucet with a warranty is likely to be your best choice. Make sure to check for ease of installation and consider the faucet's size in relation to your kitchen sink. While modern kitchen faucets should always have a clean-lined look, you can choose your preference of straighter or curvier lines.

Curved modern faucet styles tend to look like an upside down letter J. These are also known as goose neck faucets. In addition to the more common cylindrical goose neck style, there are also flattened versions. These flattened faucets that are almost ribbon-like in their appearance can really stand out in their looks and attractively accent a clean-lined, industrial decor.

The height of the arc on a goose neck faucet can vary greatly, so it's best to think about what would best suit your sink area. If possible, try out working faucets in...

If you thought you had an overabundant choice in kitchen sinks, wait until you start trying to select the right faucet. The pros and cons of various faucet setups may not be immediately obvious to you, but you should consider your setup options carefully because they directly affect the number of factory-drilled holes you’ll be working with and the plumbing design of the faucet assembly.

Faucets come in two handle setups or designs: A single, lever-style or a two-handled version. Both do the same thing — allow you to turn the water on and off and control the flow as it’s running. So, if they do the same thing, how can there be such a divided camp of people when it comes to design? Let’s look at what makes each one unique to help you decide which design is right for you.

A lever-style faucet (which controls both the hot and cold water flow with one handle) has the hot- and cold-water supply lines attached underneath where the spout is connected to the faucet housing. A...

It’s not difficult to remove a faucet. This is a DIY project you can easily handle yourself, saving you the cost of a plumber. On this page you’ll find all the steps you need to do in order to remove your faucet, cartridge and handle.

After you’ve had a faucet for a long time, you shouldn’t be surprised if it starts to leak. Faucets get used a lot, and they are always in contact with water. A leaking faucet is extremely annoying, because you always have to clean up the extra drips. Over time, a leak can raise your utility bill too. Once you know how, you can remove your old faucet and replace it, making a leak an easy problem to solve.

Faucet Removal

Step 1. Take out all of the junk from your under-sink cabinet. You’ll see that there are two supply pipes leading from the floor to the sink. Figure out which one is the hot water pipe and mark it to make re-connection easier later on.

Step 2. Underneath the water supply lines there is a valve that allows...

As a "faucet doctor" for several years, I've found that I ask this question most frequently: What brand is your faucet? It's not something most people know.

IAt one time faucets were standard models, put together out of similar parts with a different look on the outside. It was easy to fix them with an assortment of standard size washers. Now, every brand has their own sizes and types of washers, seats, or seals. It is like looking into different types of cars: no two makes are alike when it comes to finding replacement parts. Some companies do not even make replacement parts after ten years.

Here are a few essential things to look for before launching into fixing your...

Can I connect a portable dishwasher to my kitchen faucet?

Portable dishwashers may be connected to any Delta kitchen faucet that is not a Pull-out or Pull-down design. Portable dishwashers should never be connected to Pull-out or Pull-down kitchen faucets due to potential pressure fluctuations during dishwasher operation that may result in rupturing of the hose.

Some Delta kitchen faucets have a cache or hidden aerator for design purposes. This design can be found in the Victorian, Pilar, and Talbott series. If your model has a cache aerator, you will need to order RP51505 adaptor to adapt the internal threads to a standard 55/64"-27 male threads to be able to make the dishwasher connection.
