Fontaine Spring Faucet – How to Install it in 5 Steps…

Fontaine Spring Faucet, Commercial Style, Oil Rubbed Bronze

This Fontaine Spring Faucet looks less industrial than other models, plus it has more of an “old world” style. Although this is a commercial-type faucet, it is designed to be used in residential spaces.

Therefore, if your home has a traditional, rustic, country living or shabby chic style, the Fontaine can fit better than other spring faucets. In addition to the oil-rubbed bronze finish, you can also get it in stainless steel or chrome.

Just like other spring coil faucets, the Fontaine features 2 spray functions (spray and stream). Hence, this makes washing dishes so much easier, not to mention faster.

By the way, you control the sprayer by using one simple button on the spout (see video below).

Spray functions: Two (spray/stream) | Drip-free ceramic disc cartridge

Italia Fontaine Pull-Down Faucet Installation Guide and Instruction ManualFirst of all, installation may be easier than you think. For one, the only tools you will need include (1) an adjustable wrench (2) pliers (3) a pipe wrench, (4) screwdriver and (5) teflon tape.

Second, you can complete the entire task in only 5 steps. Not to mention, the first step involves shutting off the water and removing the old faucet.
