Touchless faucets are not only environmentally friendly but also and economical. This is probably the benefit that concerns you the most. People don't realise what is the quality of the water they waste when not stopping the water while they wash their teeth, until they see for themselves the difference in their new water bills. Thanks to the new intelligent electronics this water waste can be minimised by preventing water to flow when not being needed.
Now locate the shut off valve, which is usually situated beneath the sink. If you don't find it there, then go out of your home to find it; it may be situated at the water meter. Take WD40 and spray it on the valves to loosen them a bit and make your job a bit easier. If you find it hard to grip them, wear gloves or use a towel piece.
What you need next is another suitable faucet. If you just go to the local shop without doing your homework, you would be puzzled with all types - varying in size, shape, style, weight, etc. So the best thing to do is take the dismantled old faucet with you in case you forget the size. You can also manually take measurements to facilitate your selection. Choose whichever style suits you but make sure the size would fit. Almost all faucets have a manual that explains how it should be installed. Read those instructions to avoid any possible issues later.
Now check other connections for hardness; if that's the case, use some WD40 again. Pick up your pliers and take off the nuts beneath the sink that connect the faucet to the sink. Now detach the faucet and clean rust from the sink.
