Reversed faucets are a common occurrence in many homes and businesses. It can be a frustrating problem and can seem like a daunting task to fix.
But don’t worry, we’ll tell you exactly how to fix it!
A reversed faucet is a common plumbing issue that occurs when the hot and cold water are switched, so the hot water is coming out of the cold water valve, and the cold water is coming out of the hot water valve. This can happen as a result of improper installation, faulty parts, or a worn-out valve seat.
Although it may seem intimidating, fixing this issue is actually fairly simple. The first step is to turn off the water supply. Next, unscrew the faucet handles and take out the screws that hold the valve in place. You will then need to remove the valve and replace it with a new one. It is important to make sure the new valve is the correct size and type before you install it.
Once the new valve is in place, you will need to reconnect the hot and cold water lines and replace the screws that hold the handle in place. Finally, you will need to turn the water supply back on and test the faucet to make sure it is working correctly.
