As faucet technology becomes more sophisticated, the task of installing a new one also becomes slightly more complex. The procedures for connecting the faucet to the sink and hooking up the water lines haven't changed much, but it isn't always easy to get everything tight. Besides this, some single-handled faucets come with temperature limiters to prevent scalding, and if you have to adjust one, you usually need the help of the owner's manual. If you notice water spraying under the sink when you turn on the shut off valves, it's a sign that one of the faucet supply hose connections is loose. You may have tightened them enough but forgotten to wrap plumbing tape clockwise around the threads of each connection. Water spraying from the spout usually means that the aerator is loose, and if it's oozing from one of the handles of a two-handled faucet, you probably have a loose retaining nut.
