Faucet InstructionsFor the Do-It-Yourselfer 


How do I remove my faucet’s stem?  

Remove the faucet handle.

Unscrew the stem from a compression type faucet. Sink faucets are easy; you just need a crescent wrench to remove them. Tub and shower faucets need a special tool called a tub wrench to remove stems that are set a manifold behind the wall.

These instructions are for a compression style faucet stem.
