If you get the urge to replace a faucet on your own instead of calling a plumber to save a little cash, I’m here to tell you that’s a bad idea.
I embarked on this journey at 6 this evening and didn’t finish until 11. The 45 minute job I had envisioned wound up taking five hours! The faucet looks great, works, great and there’s no leaks, but I really didn’t need to spend five hours of my life installing it.
Granted, I’d never done it before so it’d probably go a little quicker next time, but I’m pretty sure that for any of my future faucet replacement needs I’ll be calling in the pros.
