    Richmond Wall Bathroom Sink circa 1964, need to replace hot and cold faucets

    Attached is a picture of what I'm dealing with. How do I get parts for this? What is involved in replacing it? I had a plumber look at it, but he didn't want to touch it and said it might require vintage parts. House was built in 1964 so this is likely from around that time period. I love the...

    What type of spray hose connection is this?

    Hello, I'm looking to remove our kitchen house sprayer from it's feed, and place a brass flare cap over it. But what kind of connection is in this picture? It's hard to get to so I want to know just how to remove it once I'm ready. And does it look like I'd be able to place a cap on it? Thank you

    Leaking kitchen sink fixture

    Hi, I need help with figuring out why the used sink I am installing is leaking from the faucet. I'm not a plumber, just a dabbler, so any and all help is appreciated. See the attached photo. I took a small video but I guess it's too large. Thank you.
