hi everyone this is justin with residential green today i would like to show you how to replace a concealed
faucetthis is a bathroom sink
faucetand as you can see it has a concealed
aeratorin there for removal. you need a special faucet now the purpose of an aerator is to save water so its nice to have however over time they can clog so if you had poor water flow it might say so or even worse , sometimes it won't even flow there is a good chance the aerator is clogged if you have an old galvanized pipe and the water was turned off for whatever reason once the water is turned on it can send a lot of crap and get caught in the aerator to
removea concealed aerator like this you will need a wrench and you can buy a kit with a wrench like this at most big box home improvement stores so when removing it you can see it has teeth on it the aerator has basically the same profile at the bottom here and it's kind of hard to do it one handed while holding a camera but essentially there we go you get those teeth kind of locked up and then you just start turning if you don't have a sink plug you might want to put something over the sink drain so it won't fall off so once you get to the point where you can unscrew it by hand just unscrew it all the way and then eventually you have to pull it out as you can see there is water that almost creates like a little bit of a vacuum so you can see the threads there this is the screen that this part here this screen or mesh that is what can get clogged and so it will need to be cleaned or replaced this is very clean there is a little impurity in there but that's not really going to stop much but yeah you can clean this or just replace it with a new one in fact you should probably replace these things on a regular basis so they stay nice and clean and fresh so to install it you just reverse the process take it as far as you can by hand and then just tighten it a bit with the wrench you don't want to overtighten it it's plastic it can break you just want it there good enough that it doesn't come out when you turn on the water or it loosen up over time to the point that it doesn't stay there c'mon voila ok well hope this video was helpful if you found it helpful please go ahead and hit the thumbs up button it would be greatly appreciated.
