Delta kitchen faucet repair instructions come with any Delta faucet repair kit. Delta single handle faucet repair is a very common repair and you should have no difficulty in finding a repair kit at your local hardware store or on-line.
To repair a Delta single handle faucet you will need a basic set of tools not included in the repair kit itself. This includes, but is not limited to, a set of allen wrenches, Philips and flat head screw drivers, slip joint pliers, Teflon paste and plumber’s grease.
You may or may not have all the tools necessary to complete the job yourself. Take inventory of what you have, what you will need, and the cost to purchase any tools that you do not have before deciding if you will complete the job yourself or call a plumber. If you decide to do the job yourself, make sure that you shut off the water supply to the sink before you begin disassembly of the faucet.
The instructions from the repair kit will generally be enough for you to determine how to take apart your Delta faucet. However, if you have never worked with a Delta faucet before, there are some portions of the process that you may find confusing. Always remain calm and think about your next step. Do not force the removal of parts out of frustration as this will likely lead to damaging parts that you will need to complete the repair of the faucet.
If you become stuck or have damaged part of the faucet needed to complete the repair, call a licensed plumber to finish the job or fix the damage. Damaged fixtures can be twice as expensive to repair and you should consider this before beginning the repair on your own. Not to mention it is extremely embarrassing to explain to the professional exactly how you managed to destroy an otherwise fixable kitchen faucet.
