In this tutorial, we will review how to replace a bathroom faucet and install a new centerset faucet with a pop-up drain in an existing sink. This helps to solidify the seal, when you go to connect the water, to prevent leaking. Your faucet may or may not have a pop-up drain.
Fasten the faucet to the sink by installing the faucet mounting washers and nuts to the underside of the sink. Have a bucket handy to catch any spilling water.
Use the flashlight to locate the nuts under the sink if you're having trouble locating them. Repeat for the other handle.
When the water is running, check for leaks and drips. Disconnect the supply tubes. If you have a single lever or single ball handle faucet, it is probably a ball-valve faucet, as shown in the photo.

While one person gently pushes the drain pipe upward, the other person will grab the drain ring from in the sink and pull it out. On top of the rubber ring is the faucet itself.
