Galley faucet question

Morning all,

I'm looking to replace my galley faucet. When I take a look under there it is very difficult to see what is going on up at the area where the faucet mounts to the sink / counter top. However I see (2) 1/4" copper tubes coming down and attaching to a brass manifold as I recall. Can anyone tell me if these copper tubes are simply hose clamped or otherwise to the faucet intake plumbing further up near the countertop? Given PSC's thoroughness in design I'm gonna guess that this tubing is actually part of the stock feed for the faucet.

Given that these are pressurized feeds I may want that design to be incorporated into any replacement faucet I may choose rather than simply doing any hose clamps. It looks like a real PIA to get to the faucet to remove also. Anyone have experience with this and know of any magical spell that will make this easy on me? Perhaps my boat guy who is far better at this kind of stuff than I will ever be will simply shrug this off and think nothing of it.

Thanks to all and have a great New Year

Re: Galley faucet question

Keith, try sticking a camera in there, like a phone. You may not be able to get a clear picture, but it will probably be good enough to figure out what's going on.

Re: Galley faucet question

Keith a pic would help, but I think you will find that the facet has the 4" spread for the holes used by bath room sinks. the 1/4" ID tube should go on with a large nut at the facet and 1/4 ID (3/8" OD) connects with flare or compression. 1/2" OD can also fit the facets.
Can you remove the sink? best way.. if not you need a "basin wrench"

Re: Galley faucet question

Denise,
Thanks so much for the photo.
I had no idea a tool like this existed. This will help alot !
However I do believe both hot and cold water lines pass thru a single opening in my galley sink arrangement as opposed to the hot and cold valves being offset from the center.

Thanks again !!

Re: Galley faucet question

The are dozens of ways they make facets keith.. the wrench my dad was a plumber.. it's a very common tool that makes an impossible job possible. You can use it for the sink rim clamps, the facet, the bolts that hold it down etc. Using the wrench is still difficult if you don't use them all the time.
Good luck!

Keith

I ended up pulling the sink to replace the drains and replace the faucet.
I have a a mention of it on my blog but no pictures.

I referenced Craig McPheeters blog where he pulled the sink and raised it

s/v Luckness

Check out his post on Oct 25, 2012 - there is a picture of faucet installed in the sink but the sink removed and flipped upside down.
