The faucet that I had was leaking and rusty. I knew it needed to be replaced, but it was not a job I had done before. I armed myself with a whole bunch of video instructions, waited for a sale and bought a new faucet for $84, which was $100 off the regular price!
It only took an hour and a half, which would have been reduced by half an hour had I had the foresight to charge my drill first. doh!
It was quite simple, so I’m not sure why I was so scared to do it. I had to drill a new hole because my old faucet had two holes where the faucet handles were. I borrowed a cut saw and other than that it’s basic tools; a couple of wrenches, a screwdriver, some plumbers putty and tape and a light source.
If you need a new faucet, tackle the job yourself, it’s pretty easy.
