Most faucets are a simple replace. They require minimal tools, and depending on the faucet brand or type, cost can be under $100 dollars. A plumber isn’t always needed to replace a faucet if you happen to have the proper tools to assemble and disassemble, however, a plumber will have no trouble removing/installing more complex faucets within an hour. For the removal and installation of a faucet minimal tools are required. An adjustable nut wrench and channel lock pliers can cover multiple tasks.
Step One: Removing your old faucet
Step Two: Installation of your new faucet
The instructions above can help with most generic faucets, however some faucets have a small extendable hose which can complicate removal and installation. On other occasions, the faucet looks correctly installed, but it is leaking while in the off position. Lastly, an issue can occur that damages the shut-off valves which will require additional repair. A plumbing professional is highly recommended when managing more complex faucets.
