The Easy Way To Install A Faucet. And A Faucet #Giveaway!

Posted by Dani on February 23, 2015

The easy way to change a bathroom faucet using the American Standard SpeedConnect!  The is an easy and quick DIY that even beginners can do! via http://lifeovereasy.com/This is the story of how I finally got a new bathroom faucet. This story turns out fine in then end– quite beautiful, in fact. But the first part is not very pretty. I’ll be hanging my head in shame as I write it.

You see, my bathroom sink faucet broke a while ago. A LONG while ago. Maybe about 2 years ago, actually. In all that time, we’ve had no hot water at our bathroom sink. Our main bathroom. That 4 people use everyday. As well as guests.

True story. No hot water.

When the hot water faucet first broke, my husband optimistically said he would fix it and added it to “The List.” This is the list of things that need attention from my very non-handy husband. And while he is a fine man with many great attributes, fixing things on The List is really not one of them. Now, he has probably brought me about 10,000 coffees in bed during our marriage, so a girl can forgive a lot. But I was still pretty desperate for a working faucet.

We talk a lot about The List in our house, and occasionally something get’s fixed, usually after several trips to Home Depot by the hubby and a lot of swears muttered under his breath. This faucet, however, was not so lucky. And while the astringent benefits of washing your face with cold water are very well known, that’s not my jam first thing in the morning.

Here’s the offending faucet. Looks pretty enough, but trust me – I couldn’t wait to chuck it in the trash.

You can imagine how excited I was when I found out about the American Standard Speed Connect Faucet. This is the fastest, easiest faucet to install, requiring 1/3 the time of a regular faucet and having less than 1/3 the parts. This was something I knew the hubby could totally handle, and I had a feeling the relative ease of this project would move it up to the top of The List. It was full-on happy dance time!

Here is what came in the box. This was everything you needed – no additional caulk, putty or tools were required. American Standard has reduced the parts for the drain with the Speed Connect from 14 to down to 4. That probably makes it simple enough that I could install it myself, but I wasn’t going to bring that up after the hubby volunteered to get on board!

The installation went smoothly and quickly, without any muttered foul language. Rick especially loved this special tool included by American Standard that made the whole project really simple:

Don’t ask me what the tool was for, but Rick had a big grin on his face when he held it up to show me.

Overall, this Speed Connect system was a big hit with Rick. And the faucet is a big hit with me. It’s a big improvement over the old one, and not just because we now have hot water! It’s beautiful and stylish, and works perfectly with the decor. The faucet actually swivels, which is surprisingly handy in a bathroom faucet. And I know with American Standard quality behind it, it’s sure to last longer than the old one.

As for me, my two years of shrieking every time I splashed water on my face is over. 2 years, people! That’s worth a few hundred coffees in bed, at the very least. Unfortunately for the hubby, while completing this project I realized that the bathroom really needed to be repainted. That’s OK, we’ll just add it to the list!

    I have recently purchased a mobile home, in Minden, Ontario. It is about 35 years old and has not had many renovations done. These bathrooms all look so great, and so new. There is nothing I would like more than to have faucets that work, and are not all encrusted with calcium, lime and rust. I work a min wage job so renovations are almost out of the question. Any help in fixing up my home would be a real blessing. Thanks
