Bathroom sink faucets are equipped with a center spout and two valves (one for hot water, one for cold). The number of holes in your sink, and the distance between them will determine the type of faucet that can fit onto your sink.
You’ll need to remove the old faucet in order to measure the distance from center to center between the two outside holes. If the distance is six or more inches, look for a wide-spread faucet. If the distance is only four inches, look for a center-spread or mini wide-spread faucet.
You’ll also need to purchase the lines that connect each water supply to its corresponding valve. Installing the new faucet can get tricky; over-tightening the fittings can cause leaks or even crack the sink. Install each piece in the correct order: spout first, then hot and cold valves, followed by the faucet handles, supply lines, drain collar, waste assembly, and rods. Once it’s installed, turn on the faucet to flush the line of any debris and checks for leaks from the faucet or supply lines.
