    Default Replacing pull out faucet flex. hose help

    The flexible line on my kitchen faucet seems to be leaking and plumbing is not my strong point! The faucet is an american standard (not sure the model). I'm wondering what type of hose to get for a replacement as I cant seem to find the exact one and whether the bottom part of that copper piece just unscrews? Thanks!

    Usually, you get the new hose for the manufacturer. I believe your faucet has a "lifetime" guarantee so they should send you a new hose, maybe charging for postage.

    Thanks! I'll have to give them a call. The previous owner of the house installed it and I cant find any numbers on it for a model. According to their website they dont print them on the product: http://www.americanstandard-us.com/l...itchen+Faucets

    When I needed parts for my Moen, I took a pic of it and emailed it to Moen.

    Companies usually only use a couple of different hoses, at most, so they should be able to help you with a verbal description. If not the picture of the connection to the faucet is all they would need.
