Traditional faucet spray hoses are pretty heavy duty and as a rule will last a lifetime, but there will be the occasion when one needs replacement so I shot this short video "How To Repair or Replace a Faucet Spray Hose" to make you aware that all faucet hose connections are not the same. The hose in this video is very common, but the methods for making the connection could differ depending on the manufacturer.

Once you determine that you need a new hose and before you run to the home center or plumbing supply for a replacement, it would be a good idea to take a look up under the sink to see exactly what type of connection you're going to need. Nothing worse than going out and getting all the materials, returning and finding out you've got the wrong replacement parts. As a rule most traditional hoses come with a 1/8" male threaded connection that screws into the base of the faucet.

But be aware that many of single lever faucet manufacturers used a 1/4" nipple extending down from the faucet base that had a 1/4" threaded union type connection at the end. The hoses that came with these faucets utilized a ground joint and a 1/4" coupling nut that screwed onto the end of the male threads extending from the faucet. The solution in connecting the 1/8" male thread of a traditional hose to the 1/4" male thread extending from a single lever faucet is to use a 1/4" X 1/8" brass reducing coupling and the problem is solved!

Check out the video and remember to get up under the sink and take a peak to make sure you're picking up the right parts for the right job.
