sink & faucet. Sunday , November 20th , 2016 - 21:23:12 PM
Have you often been woken up by the sound of your leaky shower faucet? Have you grunted in disgust and shut down the water supply to stop the annoying sound? Then decided that you can learn how to repair it yourself and failed miserably at that too? Have you considered replacing it? Relax, it's not as Herculean a task as you thought in your mind just now. Well, a little maybe, but not terribly. If you don't believe it, read the steps below. They might change your mind.
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.
Brushed nickel faucets are electroplated, which means that nickel is applied over brass. They shine less due to this nickel coating, because of which fingerprints and watermarks are not highlighted or visible on the faucet. During the 1930s, nickel went out of fashion because the coating started to come off; this problem was fixed using PVD or Physical Vapor Deposition technology. This technology makes the faucets costlier than the other types, but it has also made them of very good quality, meaning they hardly need to be repaired, and do not tarnish easily.
