Vogt’s Step-by-Step Guide to Mastering the Faucet Swap
Step 1: Gather your tools
Before diving into the faucet replacement process, it’s essential to make sure that you have the necessary tools in your metaphorical toolbelt. A wrench, plumber's tape, and a bucket will be your best friends.
Step 2: Turn off the water supply
The first step might seem obvious, but it can be a doozy if it goes undone. Always be sure to turn off the water supply to your kitchen before you begin any step of the kitchen faucet removal process. Turning off your water supply is fairly straightforward. Simply locate the shut-off valves under the sink and twist them clockwise. Ensure that you release any remaining water pressure by turning on the faucet. Once you’ve double checked that the water supply is fully shut off, you’re good to go!
Step 3: Remove the old faucet
Using your wrench, disconnect the water supply lines and remove the old faucet. Not to toot our own horn, but for a seamless faucet swap, you deserve to install the best of the best when it comes to selecting your new faucet. One of our top recommendations is the Zehn kitchen faucet. With its sleek design and stunning finishes, it’s easy to handle and its beautiful, thoughtful construction ensures that it will stand the test of time. When it comes to selecting your new faucet, keep in mind the colour, tone and shape that best suits your space. Whether you’re looking for a classic, evergreen upgrade like the Zehn collection kitchen faucet, or you’re looking for a more modern, playful twist with the customizable Mond collection, Vogt’s collections and ranges of kitchen faucets meet a variety of tastes and interior styles.

To double check that everything is working as it should, be sure to turn the water supply for your kitchen back on and check for leaks.
