Einleitung

Use this guide to replace a kitchen faucet (single-hole faucet and pull-down spray).

A simple problem of a kitchen faucet can be fixed by replacing a part or a couple of parts.

However, if the faucet has multiple problems, such as leakage, a squeaky handle, rust, or low water pressure, it might need to be replaced. If the replacement is done by a plumber, including removing an old faucet and installing a new one, it could cost at least $150, but the labor fee can be saved by replacing the faucet yourself.
