 unknown faucet
Author: that_looks_terrible (CA)

New homeowner, old house.

Bathroom sink faucet.

goal: remove and replace what I think is called the cartridge/stem from the hot side.

2 items

1. Identify faucet. Not needed if you can help with item #2.

2. How to remove cartridge/stem from hot side? I have it partially disassembled. The cartridge/stem is recessed. See photos. I don't know if further disassembly is needed before the cartridge/stem can be removed.

If further disassembly is needed before the cartridge/stem can be removed, what tools? Strap wrench? What else?

Sink photo links.


Thanks for your time.

The handle it self looks like Kohler Antique line......but not the rest of the faucet.

Looks like the stem/cartridge can be removed with a deep socket. The end body under the sink will most likely twist when trying to remove cartridge. You will need to hold it with a back up wrench. You may have to remove chrome tube before you can remove cartridge.

Hard to tell from here for sure.

Good luck.
