You may find yourself in a position where you need to remove a deep-set faucet. Not to worry, follow these steps to make sure it is done right.
Step 1: Remove Handle
Remove the faucet handle and then unscrew the escutcheon with a set of channel-type pliers. Tip: Place a layer of masking tape over the jaws of the pliers before you remove the escutcheon as it will help prevent scratching it.
Step 2: Chip Away Mortar
Using a small chisel and a ball-peen hammer chip away at any motto that surrounds the bonnet nut. This will help you a great deal in step 3.
Step 3: Unscrew Bonnet Nut
Using a deep-set ratchet wrench remove the bonnet nut and stem from the faucet body by unscrewing it counter clockwise.
