Some of the models that receive good customer ratings, are Glacier Bay's traditional (standard, solid, easy to install), double handle (sleek design with curved handles), double handle bar (long-lasting conventional type with a smooth polish), and high arc two handle (decorative model made from brass). These are just a few of the models; visit your local hardware store to check out classic fixtures of your choice.
After you have pushed the new strainer in the recessed lip, ensure that it fits properly in the plumber's putty. This will create a leak proof, airtight seal.
The very first thing that you need to check is the sink sprayer or aerator. Most of the time, the problem is restricted to the sink. First, turn on the faucet and see if there is any leakage from the hose or the joint between hose and sink. Then, turn off the faucet and water supply valve, and dismantle the sprayer. Check whether the diverter that diverts water from faucet to sprayer is in good condition. If there is any blockage or debris, soak the diverter overnight in a cup full of vinegar. Now, remove the spray head and check if the aerator is blocked. Now, check the hose to see whether it is clogged or blocked with any deposits. Soak it in vinegar overnight and flush water through it. In case it is cracked, it needs to be replaced. Similarly, check the aerator or strainer on sink faucet. If there is any debris blocking it, clean the aerator by soaking it overnight. In case of a highly damaged piece, you can simply get it replaced.
First part of the plumbing project is removing the old sink. If you don't want your kitchen to be transformed into a swimming pool, I recommend that you close all the water inlet valves of the sink, before going ahead. Also, disconnect the other connections like supply tube, disposal, and trap. Be careful and keep a tub underneath, while removing the pipes, as they may still contain residual water inside.
