How do I remove my kitchen faucet?

Removal of a kitchen faucet is a simple task that can be accomplished with common household tools. Follow the steps below to remove your kitchen faucet.

  1. Turn off the water by shutting off the valve in the cabinet below your sink. Be sure to open the faucet so that all water drains out of the pipes.
  2. Disconnect the water supply lines underneath the sink. There may be residual water remaining in the tubes, so place a bucket or towel underneath to catch any drip.
  3. If the faucet bottom is mounted, remove it by pulling off the handles and unscrewing the nuts. If you have a top mounted faucet, the screws will be found on the underside of the faucet.
  4. Finally, simply lift the faucet to remove.

You can easily replace your kitchen faucet without having to consult a professional. Visit a home improvement store or department store to price replacement faucets and types.
