Steps to Replace Your Aerator
Installing faucet aerators in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry faucets can cut water usage by 30% or more without compromising water flow. Replacing an aerator is the easiest plumbing repair in the book, hands down!
Step 1: Turn off the water supply to the faucet or you can just make sure the faucet handles are in the closed position which should be good enough for majority of faucets.
Step 2: Unscrew your current aerator by turning it clockwise. IF you need to, use a wrench to grip the aerator. Make sure to protect your faucet with tape or a rag so it doesn’t get scratched or damaged. Clean the thread of the faucet spout with a clean cloth to make sure it is not blocked
Step 3: If your old faucet does not unscrew, consider investing in a new faucet. You will most likely still be able to use this 1.5 gpm aerator on the new faucet since most faucets do not come with this low of a flow out of the box. You will soon make up the cost of the new faucet with savings on your water bill.
Step 4: Once you have the old aerator off, after cleaning, twist the new aerator clockwise into place. Avoid using a metal wrench so you do not scratch the new aerator or faucet.
Step 5: Now clap you hands, you have just saved yourself money and on your way to save water immediately! Congratulation!
