How to Change a Kitchen Sink Spray
Yes, we love plumbers, we really do. But they’re not always necessary when the power is within you to Do It Yourself. You can handle this project without worry, we’re betting on it.
Tools and supplies required: Pipe Thread Tape, Adjustable Wrench, Adjustable Pliers
Turn off the water supply to the sink before you begin making repairs. Remove the old Hose by unscrewing the Threaded Connectors at the Spray Head and Faucet under the Sink. Next, examine the new Hose. The Round Nut connects to the Spray Head, the Hex Nut connects to the female Quick Connector.
Install the new Guide in the Sink opening and tighten the Nut from the bottom of the Sink.
Unscrew the Nut from the Spray Head.
Push the hose through the Nut.
Snap the included Clip onto the Hose. Some Danco products use a larger clip to like the one shown to make it easier to attach. However, traditional smaller clips like this can also be used, depending on the type of clip that is included with your new Sink Spray.
Install the Nylon Washer first onto the Hose and then place the Rubber Washer onto the Hose over the first Washer. Hand tighten Nut clockwise onto Spray Head, but be sure not to overtighten.
Attach the Female Quick Connect to the Hose by sliding the free end of the Hose downward through the Guide Hole until the Spray Head is fully seated in the Guide. Insert the Small Washer into the Hex Nut. Screw the Quick Connect Adapter into the Hex Nut. Tighten gently with the Adjustable Wrench and Adjustable Pliers. Over Tightening May Damage The Washer.
From supplied Nipple Adapters, choose a Nipple Adapter that fits the Faucet Connection under sink. Wrapping clockwise, apply 2 to 4 turns of the Pipe Thread Tape to the threads on the Male Faucet Connection or Male Nipple Adapter. Tighten the Adapter onto the Faucet Connection with the Adjustable Wrench. Do not overtighten.
While pulling back on the white collar on the Quick Connect Adapter, push the Quick Connect Adapter onto the Adapter Nipple on the Faucet connector.
When fully seated, release the white collar. Tug the Hose to make sure the Quick Connect Adapter is secure. Turn the water supply on, run water and check for leaks.
