In response to Re: Install Faucets
: I have installed American Standard bathroom faucets. There was a vaseline type substance in the connectors for the hot and cold water lines. I wiped out as much as I could, but now that the faucets are up and working, there is a horrible taste and smell in the water. Any advice?

Reply:
The substance is most likely plumbers grease. Some manufacturers will ship new plumbing parts like this. The smell and foul taste should dissipate rather quickly, if it doesn't, you need a professional to check the system, the problem may not be with the newly installed faucet.
Let the faucet run H & C for a few minutes.
Good Luck. e-plumber
