Pfast Connect™, a feature that comes with many of our faucets, ensures a tight connection to water supply lines for worry-free installation.

Also to know is, how do you connect supply lines to a kitchen faucet?
  1. TURN OFF THE WATER. Turn off the water at the shutoff valves under the sink or at the main water supply.
  2. ATTACH THE SUPPLY CONNECTORS TO THE FAUCET. If your faucet comes with supply connectors already attached to the faucet, skip this step and proceed to Step 3.
  3. ATTACH THE FAUCET.
  4. CONNECT THE SUPPLY LINES.
  5. TEST FOR LEAKS.

Similarly, how can you tell which water line is hot and cold under the sink? Typical plumbing for a kitchen sink includes a drain line and a pair of water lines with shutoff valves under the sink. In most cases, the hot water is on the left and the cold water is on the right.

Moreover, should I use plumbers tape on supply lines?

Most faucets will have hot and cold water supply lines attached, so you just need to connect them to the appropriate water supply line. You may need to use Teflon tape (aka plumber's tape) for this part, which is used to seal and lubricate threaded pipe joints.

Can you put a one hole faucet in a three hole sink?

If you're replacing the faucet in your existing sink, look underneath the sink to see how many holes it has - usually between 1 and 4. This determines the type of faucet that will work with your sink. A one-hole faucet can be installed in a 3- or 4-hole sink by adding a deck plate, but not vice versa.

Faucet Supply Lines

About Faucet Supply Lines

You can use faucet supply lines in both the bathroom and the kitchen. No matter what size of faucet supply line you need, they all include FIP (female) hex nut connectors on either side for strong secure connections. These lines are also known as sink supply lines, which are available in various diameters. The larger the diameter, the higher flow capacity it can handle. When installing the sink supply lines, it may be necessary to use both Teflon tape and a thread sealant to keep the connections secure in order to handle all of the water pressure.

Here at PlumbersStock we offer high-quality plumbing products from top manufacturers in the plumbing industry. Brasstech, Fluidmaster, Viega and Watts are leaders in the supply line industry.

How to Install Faucet Supply Lines

Once you have purchased your faucet supply line, it is important to take the following steps to have a properly functioning faucet.

  1. First and foremost, it is important to shut-off the water by either using the shut-off valve under the sink or by the valve at the main water supply.
  2. For this step, you will need Teflon Tape in order to secure the threading. It is also important to note that there are separate hot and cold water lines, so you should know which is which. In this step you will attach the supply connectors to the faucet itself.
  3. Now you need to put the connectors and faucet into the correct place on the sink. Feed the connectors through the mounting holes. Tighten and secure the faucet down (be careful not to tighten the bolts too much cracking the sink).
  4. Now it is time to connect the faucet supply lines. Use the Teflon Tape to wrap the MIP (male) threads and also apply some thread sealant. You will now be able to securely connect the sink supply lines to the connectors and shut-off valves. Make sure that you connect the cold to the cold and the hot to the hot.
  5. The last step is to check the lines for leaks at all of the new connection points. If needed, tighten the connections where the leaks are occurring.

Looking for: 3/8" Faucet supply line extension.

Just bought a new faucet for the kitchen and the supply lines that are part of the faucet are just a bit too short to reach the 3/8" shut off valves.

So I'm looking for a short, one or two foot, 3/8" supply line extension, female connector on one end, male on the other end.

I would have thought that's easy to find, there are sure enough people looking for that when I do a google search, but all I could find as far as the product is concerned, is reference to an old model made by Delta years ago and not readily available or the suggestion to cobble something together using various fittings.

I would really like to keep the number of connections at a minimum, so using multiples when a single one should do, is not my preferred method of doing this.

If anyone has come across a 3/8-inch supply line extension, could you point me in the right direction.

There is no market for the product you are describing, ergo it does not exist, as faucet hookups use one single, proper length supply line for hookup, which is an industry standard.

Purchase longer supply lines, which should be available at any building supply store.

Can you replace the supply hose on your new faucet with a longer one?

Well, for a product for which there is supposedly "no market", there are sure enough people looking for it when one googles that subject.

Buying a longer supply line is not an option - all the faucets I have bought recently have the supply line integrated as part of the faucet, it's not something whete one can just take the provided supply lines off and attach longer ones.

I don't know what the "industry standard" is, but the last faucet I just bought where I need the extension, is a Pfister kitchen faucet that comes with inch supply lines per the labeling on the box.
Not sure exactly how they measure it, ie from what point in the faucet.

And these inch supply lines would have just barely made it if they were the, what I call standard braided type that are quite flexible.
But Pfister changed the supply line type to a rather stiff type of hose with very limited flexibility, so although the length reaches the shut off valves, one can't bend the supply line enough to thread it on properly.
With a braided supply line it would have worked.

A follow-up:

The faucet I just installed was this one bought at Lowe's
https://www.lowes.ca/kitchen-faucets/pf html

In the description it says the supply lines are 36 inches long - on the box the faucet comes in it states that the supply lines are 30 inches long.
Maybe I got old stock and Pfister made the supply lines longer because they don't flex as well as the braided type.

And I also haven't found what the "industry standard length" is that filedhousehandy referred to.

There is no industry standard length, just that the industry standard is to use one supply line only to connect the shutoff valve to the faucet.

Of course, this all hinges on the fact that shutoff valves should be installed at industry specified heights, and that countertops should also fall within industry accepted ranges in height.

So it looks like your shutoffs were installed excessively low, that combined with the 30" lines (which should have been long enough) left you in this position.

From the image, Pootza's solution appears to be a 3/8 compression to 3/8 threaded, which is not what you are looking for.

I have installed a number of bathroom sink faucets with the 'integrated' supply lines, and although they at first appear to simplify installation, there are cases such as the OP's which renders them to be unworkable or uninstallable, and the only resort is to return the faucet, and purchase a faucet with an integrated stainless braided supply, or a separate braided stainless supply.

I work in a facillity with well over four hundred faucets, and none of them required extenders as the OP is describing.

I would suggest that percent of all sinks in Canada are likely installed with a single supply line, and the odd handful need such an extension, ergo there really is no market for the product.

I ended up cobbling something together with a couple of different supply lines just to get water back in the kitchen again.
A kitchen with no water is a real problem.

Then, a few minutes ago, I crawled uder the sink and measured the length of the supply lines - from the bottom of the sink deck where the faucet is mounted, I measure 33 inches.
From the point where the supply lines leave the threaded mount of the faucet it's about 2 inches less.

As I mentioned before, the length would have been OK if the supply lines were the braided type which is more flexible.

The sink is a double ceramic sink with one large and one smaller basin.
The shut-off faucets are pretty close to the bottom of the cabinet and only about an inch in from the right hand side.
If the shut-offs had been the 90 degree ones rather than the straight ones (with the 3/8 connection pointing up), it probably would have just worked as well since I wouldn't need the second bend in the supply hose from the faucet.

Right now, it is what it is - will just leave it like this.

Your math is off a bit

But the OP can use a 3/8 supply line along with a 3/8 compression union to join the extension to. Discard the nuts off the union, then use it to join the 2 hoses together

In a similar situation as the OP. My builder only extended the PEX supply lines 3" from the bottom of my kitchen cabinet. The faucet i purchased has integrated supply lines so i need to extend them by a few inches as the won't reach the hot & cold water supply. Saw these at HD, would they do the trick?
Thanks

Go to Noble, Next, Independent, Sherwood, Bardon, Desco, Wolseley, Mark’s , etc and ask for a faucet extension.

Did I just blow your mind?

Are they used a lot? Sure they are. We use them all the time when hooking up under sink filtration packages, coffee and other countertop appliances, remote chillers, etc. Oh, and even faucets.

What Is the Common Waterline Size Under a Sink?

The rough-in plumbing to a sink consists of two water pipes -- one hot and one cold -- that terminate with shut-off valves. When you install the sink faucet, you connect it to the valves with flexible hoses. The connectors on these hoses must match those on the valve outlets and the faucet tubes.

Pipe Size

The pipe stub-outs under your sink are branch pipes that connect to 3/4-inch main pipes, and they always have a diameter of 1/2 inch. Plumbers conform to this standard whether installing copper, chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) or polybutylene (PB) pipes. The shut-off valves that connect to these pipes may have threaded or compression fittings, but they always have a 1/2-inch inlet port to connect to the supply pipe.

Valve and Faucet Fittings

Shut-off valves come with different-sized outlet ports. The two most common are 3/8- and 1/2-inch compression or male pipe thread. Faucets connectors aren't completely standardized, but most have 1/2-inch male pipe thread connectors. The hoses that connect the valves to the faucet have a 1/2-inch diameter and come in various lengths and with various configurations of 3/8- and 1/2-inch female connectors, so you can always find one that fits both your valves and your faucet.
