Replacing a kitchen faucet can be a great DIY project, provided you have the right tools. The installation of your kitchen faucet will depend on the type of faucet you are installing. In general, you'll need the following items and tools - channel-locking pliers, basin wrench, adjustable wrench, flexible supply lines, tape measure, and plumber's putty. Your faucet's installation instructions should outline everything you need. If you're uncertain, your best option is to contact your local plumber. They'll help you get your kitchen sink installed properly the first time.
