Picture of How to change a kitchen tap
This is a simple instructable showing how to change a kitchen tap in less than an hour.
I got this tap in Ikea for a reasonable price and the flexible hoses in my local hardware shop. Taps pluming systems may vary between different makes of kitchen taps. But the basics are generally all the same, it's not rocket science.
So lets get started...

Most of the taps comes in a kit with all the parts you will need. I prefered to buy these 2 flexible easy fit hoses rather then using the ones I got in the kit.

Tools you will need are:
- 2 spanners for opening and to tighening the nuts.
- Teflon tape is important to seal the threaded joint connections preventing leaks.
- Screw gun or screwdriver.
