Perilous Plumbing

I am taking the day off today, tackling two plumbing projects - replacing faucet systems on our two sinks. That is the goal, anyhow. What should take an hour, I suspect will take the entire day, and may require paying someone who actually knows what he is doing. But, really, what could go wrong?

As long as you can have a good, non-leaking shut-off upstream of the faucet, the job isn't usually too difficult. I like teflon tape over pipe dope; it's slicker, seals well as it easier use. I replace the supply hook-up with a flexible, nylon reinforced hook-up. It's very forgiving. Just be sure to get the right connection and length. You don't really want them to be overly long; looks bad. I make the direct connections to the fixture before installing the it on the sink to avoid the otherwise inevitable banging up of your knuckles in very confining space.
