problem: remove bath faucet
hi, i am trying to remove a bath faucet. the hex nuts underneath the sink are giving me problems. it is a standard centerset faucet. the nut is rusty and small. i tried basin wrench. i cannot get it to loosen. please take a look at the attached picture. what tool do I use to loosen it?
I would use penetrating oil on it repeatedly over the course of several days, and then use a deep socket with and extension.
It looks like that nut is rusting. Whenever you do ANY plumbing work, use solid brass or stainless steel fasteners to avoid problems like these.
An abrasive cut off wheel in a Dremel or Roto Zip should have it off quickly...
I don't usually have several days to wait for penetrating oil to work or not...
