Quick Tip Instruction Guide
Purchase A Threaded Faucet Adapter
This small connector is threaded to fit a standard faucet such as a kitchen or bathroom faucet. One end is threaded to fit at the sink while on the other end, it is threaded an ordinary garden hose as you would use outside. Be sure to figure out what kind of faucet you have they are not all the same size. Our sizing for the Danco Metal Faucet Adapter is listed below. A low-cost time-saving solution so put away the buckets.
Remove The Aerator On Your Faucet
If your faucet has an aerator fitting underneath it usually can be removed. This is located where the water comes out. If yours is newer or has been off recently you will need to remove it by twisting clockwise. Sometimes they can be stubborn if they are old and have a lot of lime or calcium build-up. You will then need to break the bond on this fitting and screw it out.
The fitting usually consists of a simple rubber stopper and is often easy to remove by hand. Grasping the aerator with an old rag and a pair of pliers is usually all that is needed to break it loose and then simply unthread the fitting. There is likely a screen and a washer. Remember the order so you can put it back on when you’re are finished.
Thread The Adapter Securely
NOTE: Do not force it. Do not cross-thread. Cautiously twist the adapter into your faucet of choice. Bathtubs and showers and usually not an option. If it doesn’t fit check your size. Forcing it can not only damage the adapter but the faucet as well. Rotate until snug do not over tighten.
Almost Done, Now Attach The Hose
To do this locate the female end of the hose. Be sure there is an O Ring washer installed to minimize and reduce leakage at the connection point. Then simply screw it to the newly installed Danco Metal Faucet Adapter. Same as before taking extra cautions to not cause damage by overtightening or cross-threading when you screw your garden hose to the spout. The entire process is quick easy and pretty mess-free. Keep a washrag or towel handy to wrap around the connection point in case there are any leaks.
