This is Nicholas Iarocci, the Home Source Guy, President and Owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York, and this is how to replace a sink sprayer base. Now, in order to replace the sink sprayer base, you have to kind of work things in reverse. What happens is you can't get the hose through the base. So, even if you took off the hand spray, you won't be able to drop it through the base. So, that means you have to take the hose off at the faucet end. So, I've removed the sink to show you guys a better view of it. So basically, we're going to remove the hose from the faucet here. And it's very easy to do if the sink is out, however, if the sink was installed at the countertop, you'd need what's called a basin wrench. And basically, the basin wrench would just go over it, and it gives you that reach you need. Actually, it goes the other way, to loosen it up. So you do that, go back and forth, loosen it up. This is nylon, so it really wasn't that tight anyway. So we take off the hose, loosen the existing sprayer. I'm going to get our new sprayer base and install plumber's putty in the back. We're gonna reinstall the base, the retaining nut. Hand-tighten it, and then we'll take our channel locks and give it the final tightenings. So we're going to reinstall our hose on the faucet, but during the procedure, make sure that any of the gaskets, whether they're O-rings, or gaskets in our case, didn't fall out. As an added precaution, you can add some sealant to the threading before you reinstall the hose. So, we're going to reattach the hose. Tighten it clockwise, righty-tighty. Lefty-loosey. And again, this is a little over finger-tight because they're plastic fittings, in our case, and they don't have to be forced. And that was how to replace a sink sprayer base. This is Nicholas Iarocci, the Home Source Guy, President and Owner of Source Development, Inc,. a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York, helping you building a better life.
