 New single handle faucet hot water on right
Author: DaisySara (FL)

Just installed a new single handle Glacier bay faucet and the hot water is coming out of the right. The valves are labeled, I attached hot to hot and cold to cold. But it was backwards. I switched it around and water is on the left now, but could this cause any problems?

As long as you're the one using the faucet there will be no problems, however a guest in your home could become burned by the hot water when the faucet is in the cold setting.
Won't rotating the cartridge resolve the issue ?

North Carolina, i think she said the problem is solved by switching the supplies under the sink.

DaisySara, it will do harm using the faucet the way you now have it connected.
if you want, you can remove the handle and rotate the stem 180 deg. that should correct it. then change the supplies back the way they were. ( some faucets work this way and some don't ??)
