How to Install Plumbing Fixtures

Shut off the water supply to the area where the new plumbing fixtures will be installed. The turn off valve for sinks should be underneath the sinks in the cabinets. The toilet shut off valve should be in back if the toilet and the shower and tub shut off valve should be in the basement or behind the wall in an access door. Reattach the hot and cold water pipes with a wrench. It might be necessary to use some plumbers tape to secure the seals. Then attach the drain to the faucet and tighten using the plumbers tape if a leak appears. Then loosen the bigger nut holding the faucet to the drainpipe. The faucet should easily pull out from the top. Test the faucet and drain for any leaks. Tighten where necessary being careful not to over tighten and strip the threads.
