There are various types of kitchen faucets, but the plumbing basics of removing, cleaning, and reinstalling the faucet remains the same. The problem of a leaky or noisy faucet is faced, when either the parts of the faucet are completely corroded, too old, or are very dirty. In some cases, you might just need an old toothbrush to clean the parts, but if the parts are completely worn out then replacing them with new parts is essential. Here are the different types of kitchen faucet repair methods depending upon the source of the problem.
Keep the clips as they may be useful, if the new replacement is of the same size as the old one. In case they are damaged, you need to buy new ones. Usually, they are packaged together with the sink. Apply caulk on the underside of the sink and on the borders of the countertop cavity. Next, you have to install the sink in place, with the help of the clips. Align them in place and match them with their mates on the underside. Lower the sink in place of the countertop, before fixing in the nuts. That should get it positioned well. Be careful and watch your fingers, while lowering it in the countertop.
After 10-15 minutes of soaking, scrub the pipes with a brush and get rid of all the grime, grease, and dust build up.
