Replacing the Kitchen Faucet Sprayer

If the kitchen faucet sprayer is old and leaking, the simplest solution can be to replace the entire unit with a new one. Start by turning off the water under the sink. Let the faucet run until the pipe is empty and no more water appears.

Pull out the sprayer head hose and unscrew the spray head. In some instances this will require a wrench to loosen the nut. With the head detached, you can now pull the hose through until it can be recovered from underneath the sink. Unscrew the hose from the water pipe connection to complete removal.

Take out the new hose. Apply Teflon tape to the threads on the connection and screw the hose to the water pipe, making sure the connection is sufficiently tight. Push the hose through the hole in the sink unit and wrap Teflon tape on the connector where the spray head will attach.
