Plumbing part 2 – PLUMBING SUCKS

So after I got the water pump installed, I decided that it would be a good idea to replace the faucet as well, since it was EXTREMELY gross on the inside. Also I am a classy fellow, and a nice new tap would help to reflect that – I bought this one http://www.homedepot.ca/product/integra-1-handle-kitchen-faucet-with-matching-pullout-wand-chrome-finish/916976

The tap to be bolted on from below, here I got this photo by jamming my arm around and snapping it with my phone

The BIG problem was that I couldn’t really reach it, from the outside. In the photo below you can see that the entrance to under the sink is tiny, and away from where the taps are. In addition, the sink blocked any attempt to get there

The only way to access it was to remove the sink, UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Luckily the sink was only held on by wingnuts and right angle brackets so it wasn’t TOO hard to take offIMG_20140729_180955-1

I managed to get off the plastic wingnuts off, but the nut was embedded deep in the wood so I couldn’t get it out.

I went to home depo and bought this tool for 30 bucks http://www.homedepot.ca/product/faucet-and-sink-installer-tool/968782

Got it home and it STILL DOESN’T FIT ARRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHH

At this point I gave up in a huff. Stupid dumb thing.
