Replaced the kitchen tap

Finally got around to replacing the kitchen tap when I found what I wanted on sale at Lowes. Took just under an hour to do it all including making a shim because the tap washer/nut sits partly onto the underside of the sink and doesn't clamp flat. Tap came with everything I needed and had 1/2" supply fittings which connected straight to the OE fittings on the PEX.

From Lowes Canada. Similar tap is in the US but not on sale.

That's the fitting that came with the tap that adapts the 1/2" PEX fitting to the tap itself. Many new taps these days come with 3/8" only and then you have to buy the adapters. There was another tap thread recently that mentioned this issue I think.

I liked the price on sale too (~88$US).

I replace the kitchen faucet right away, but I turned the operating level to the front, that way no water on the counter when operating.

Good looking upgrade. Love to see the mods and a faucet change out is a simple enough project to ease into things. The RV industry really uses some cr*ppy fixtures on the factory assembly line so a faucet change out can really add value to anyone’s RV experience.
