Einleitung

This guide will instruct on how to replace an old bathroom faucet with a new one. One may need to replace a faucet if the taps stop working, there is rust or chemical damage, or even to beautify the bathroom.

Before following this guide, ensure the replacement faucet is the right pick for the sink it is being placed in. The replacement faucet in this guide is a MOEN Adler 4-inch Centerset Single-Handle Low-Arc Bathroom Faucet. The faucet being replaced is an older model of the same kind. Be wary that the instructions for alternative faucets may differ slightly. However, most faucets have similar parts so this guide will still be helpful.
