Place an old towel or rag over the drain in the sink to prevent anything falling down the drain.
Cover the old aerator with an old towel or rag and remove using tongue and groove pliers.
Use an old toothbrush dipped in vinegar to clean the threaded area of the faucet, and then dry with a rag.
Turn on the water and run for 5 to 10 seconds. This will flush out any residue that might have come loose inside the faucet.
Remove the kitchen faucet aerator from the kit. Dry the faucet threads. Place the rubber washer/s inside the aerator.
NOTE: The flip aerator is designed for use with inside and outside threaded faucets.
• External Threads: Use one rubber washer.
• Internal Threads: Use two rubber washers.
Screw on the new kitchen faucet aerator clockwise and hand tighten until snug. Do not over-tighten.
Turn on the faucet and check for leaks. If it leaks, add some Teflon Tape in a clockwise direction to the threads of the aerator.
NOTE: The aerator will not completely stop the flow of water. This is to prevent buildup of hot water that might pose a threat to children.
Instead of rinsing, use the plastic squeegee to scrape off any leftover food from your plates and dishes. Clean and save the squeegee for further use.
