Mr. Fix-It







New faucet: $130

Installation time: 1.5 hours

Satisfaction in throwing away old faucet: Priceless!


This past Saturday, Scott and I went to Home Depot to purchase a new faucet. On Sunday, Scott installed it. The one in our kitchen was the original installed by the builder and it was apparently the cheapest one available. We noticed our next door neighbors' faucet was about to break off about a year ago, and shortly thereafter, ours started acting up. It worked fine, but the lever that you pull up on to cause the water to flow was kind of stuck. So, it was all the way on or all the way off. No trickles! Plus, it took more effort than we felt it should to turn it on. I felt like we might yank it out of the sink every time we turned it on! We got a nice new faucet and Scott installed it with very little help on my part. I just held stuff in place once or twice so he could screw it in snugly. We are very happy with the new faucet so far!

Wow! You are truly a blogger when you take this many pictures of changing out the faucet! ha ha! Our builder installed faucet lasted less than 2 years I think. I like the fancy sprayer/nozzle.

Well, I get excited about home improvement projects! I also get carried away! Plus, we hated that faucet!
