[MUSIC PLAYING] Hey, I'm Michael. And I'm Brandy from Hansgrohe. Today we're going to be showing you that changing your faucet doesn't have to be intimidating. This step-by-step guide will show you how to remove your old, outdated facet and replace it with a new Hansgrohe kitchen faucet. Before selecting a new kitchen faucet, you need to know how many holes you sink currently has, 1, 2, 3, or 4. If your sink has more holes than the new faucet requires, consider adding a soap dispenser or matching plug. For the installation of the new faucet, you'll need a few basic tools. You will need two adjustable wrenches, flat head and Phillips head screw divers, a tray or bucket to catch excess water, a dry cloth, and safety glasses. A basin wrench may also be required when removing of your old faucet. To remove your old faucet, start by turning the hot and cold water supplies off. These are typically found under your sink. To release pressure in the lines, turn your facet to the on position, and then back off. Next, use the adjustable wrench to disconnect the water supply lines. Keep a tray or bucket handy to catch any remaining water left in the lines. To make removal easier, we also recommend that you disconnect the water supply lines from your existing kitchen faucet. Depending on the space available you have to work in, use the basin wrench or adjustable wrench to unscrew the mounting hardware holding the faucet in place. If you previously had a three-hole kitchen faucet, start by installing the base plate and gasket to cover up the existing holes. From under the sink, install the mounting pieces and collars loosely. Make sure the base plate is parallel to your back splash and the front of your sink. Next, remove the pre-installed washers and mounting nut. Here's a tip, start by taking out the hose with the brass straight connector piece, then the first hose with the green braided line, and then the second one. Before installing the faucet, you will need to attach the hand sprayer to the end of the hose and tighten the connection by hand. Now it's time to install the faucet. Guide the hoses through the hole, making sure that they are straight and not tangled. From under the sink, install the washers and mounting nut. To do so, slide the hoses one-by-one through the washers and the mounting nut. Tighten the nut first by hand. If you have a stainless steel sink and are mounting the faucet to it directly, make sure to install the plastic spacer provided to properly secure the faucet. Check that the faucet and base plate, if used, are lined to your preference. If so, then tighten the screws. You can now secure the two screws attached to the base plate using the adjustable wrench until snug. Now it is time to make all your connections. Connect the hand spray to the outlet hose. Pull down moderately to ensure proper connection is made. You can now connect the flexible water supply lines to the corresponding hot and cold water valves. The hot is usually on the left. The hot water supply line is marked with a red band. The connections provided fit most supply valves. Screw fittings on by hand until finger tight, and then tighten snugly with an adjustable wrench while holding the supply valve with the other wrench. Do not over tighten. Install the hose weight on the hand spray side of the loop by using a Phillips screwdriver. Test the pull out hand spray. If the host does not move smoothly, reposition the hose under the faucet to prevent rubbing on the pull out hose and reposition the weight if needed. Now it's time for our quick check. Go ahead and turn the water back on and check for leaks with the faucet off, then with the faucet on. There should be no leaks at the supply valve connection or hand spray connection. For the next few days, it's a good precaution to check under the sink periodically just to be sure there are no leaks. We recommend washing your supply lines to remove any debris. Detach the previously installed hand spray. Remove the filter screen and hold the hose in your hand and let the water run for 45 seconds. Turn off the water, then press the filter screen back into place and connect the sprayer to the hose, then place in the spout. This completes your installation of your new Hansgrohe kitchen faucet. Your new kitchen faucet offers many innovative features you will enjoy for years to come. As a safety feature, only cold water runs when the handle is pulled down, which prevents accidental scalding. Since that handle starts in a vertical position, the faucet can be installed in kitchens with very limited back splash areas. With 150 degrees swiveling, all of the sink is within reach. The spray head is locked in place due to its magnetic assisted feature. This faucet features two spray modes. To activate needle spray, press the diverter button and to return to full spray, turn the water off then back on. The quick clean silicone aerator and spray nozzle prevent limescale build up. The steel optic finish ensures the faucet's appearance for years to come.
