New kitchen faucet...


Very late Sunday afternoon, Jim (DH) decided to tear out the old faucet that had issues and install the new one...hmmm...only had the new one since the beginnig of Oct...gotta love husbands!  LOL  Now mind you he starts on this project, it is Sunday so everything closes at 8 PM, he makes a couple trips to Lowe's for some additional items and finally gets this installed only to discover at 7:35 that it is broke and doesn't work!!!  ARGHHHHHHHHHHHH and he was leaving on a business trip Monday!  Yikes all I can see is a few days with no water..UGH...so Heather and I run off to Home Depot and get another one and some ring thing gaskets of some sort and come back and he finishes putting it in and it works.  No leaks!  Yea!!  So Monday morning I get up and turn on the faucet and nothing happens.  I mean NOTHING!  No water, no noise NOTHING and Jim is at the airport!  I do everything I can think of to get the water to come on, NOPE NOT happening!  So I walk away and hear water running and go on the search for where that is and discover that the hose outside is split and spewing water all over the place, get that shut off, however still no water in the kitchen sink.  I finally figured it out and got it working.

OK so I'm guessing you turn that little thing on the side to blue or red for cold or hot? Or is it one of those ones you just toch and the water comes on?

There is that little lever on the right and if you move it up and down it goes from hot to cold but did not turn the water on. Nope don't touch it either. Turns out that little lever you push it to the right and the water turns on! LOL
