Do I need a plumber to repair a faucet?

Replacing a faucet can be a manageable DIY project for those comfortable with basic home improvement tasks. To aid in this process, we’ve crafted a straightforward 6-Step Guide on faucet installation, accessible here. Before starting, ensure you have all necessary tools, such as plumber’s tape and a wrench. The process involves shutting off the water supply, removing the old faucet, cleaning the mounting area, and then installing the new faucet according to the manufacturer’s instructions. After connecting the supply lines, turn the water back on to test for leaks.

While many homeowners successfully complete this task, it’s important to assess your comfort level and the condition of your existing plumbing. If you’re unsure or if any complications arise—particularly with older or damaged plumbing connections—seeking professional assistance from Mainstream is recommended.
