The Moen 7560 faucet features a faucet head that pulls out to use as a sprayer. The faucet turns on and off with a lever rather than knobs and can be installed in a one-hole or thee-hole sink. The 7560 comes with a chrome, white, ivory, matte black or stainless steel finish to match your kitchen decor. You can have a plumber install the faucet, or you can install it yourself with just a few tools.

Things You'll Need

  • Moen 7560 faucet
  • Sink with one or three installation holes
  • Two wrenches
  • Phillips head screwdriver

Turn off the water supply to your kitchen sink. The shut-off valve is located under the sink. Once off, open the tap to clear out any residual water.

Attach the spray head to the water line tube, and then thread the tubing into the body of the faucet. The tubing now extends from the base of the faucet.

Place the bottom plate of the faucet over the holes of your sink. The bottom plate is grooved on its upper surface, so be sure these grooves face upward. The hole of the bottom plate is positioned over the center hole of a three-hole sink and over the only hole of a one-hole sink. Place the top plate of the faucet over the bottom plate.

Thread the tubing extending from the bottom of the body of the faucet through the hole in the top plate. Position the body of the faucet so it matches up to the notches around the hole of the top plate. Check that the faucet head turns from side to side.

Get under the sink, and slide the U-shaped nut assembly up to the underside of the sink. Use a wrench to tighten the nut onto the faucet stem's large thread. Then use the screwdriver to tighten the base of the nut assembly into the underside of the sink. Have a friend hold the faucet still while you do this.

Attach the hot-water-supply line to the hot-water outlet and the cold-water-supply line to the cold-water outlet valve. Hot is on the left, cold is on the right. Hot also is usually marked with red, and cold is marked with blue. Use the wrench to tighten the nut on the supply line, and use the other wrench to hold the valve nut steady if needed.

Attach the hose weight to the tubing of the faucet that leads to the spray head. Position the two halves of the weight about 15 inches below the base of the sink, and then use the screwdriver to secure the screws that hold the two halves together. Pull out the spray head to see if you have enough tubing for your needs. Move the weight up or down on the tube to control how much tubing comes out of your faucet when you use the spray head.

Turn on your water supply. Check for any leaks at the valves. If any water leaks, turn of the water supply and re-tighten the nuts from the supply line to the valves. Once all leaks are taken care of, turn on the tap and run water through your new faucet to clear out any air.

Tips & Warnings

  • The faucet should be run without the aerator mesh in the spray head before you use the sink for drinking water. This clears out any debris from the faucet.
