I'm installing an aerator on a sink in which it's aerator has not been
touched for more than 20 years. It's apparently stuck on there, with
quite a bit of rust on the inside (apparently), or if it's not rust,
it's probably glued on. Are there any suggestions on what I should do?
I've attempted the pliers, the wrench, as well as manually screwing it
off. All of my attempts are 100% fruitless so far. I've even tried the
hair dryer and ice, but that didn't work either.
shower power has phosphoric acid which will help eat away at the
mineral deposits. or, depending on the fixture, you might just drill
out the old aerator screen to improve the flow if that's your goal. or,
there's replacement fixtures or parts.
you might browse thru the online catalog for a delta faucet spout for
$13.97 for example at www.hdsupply.com
