How To Remove A Hidden Thread Aerator


Welcome to, your go-to destination for hassle-free faucet maintenance. In this step-by-step guide, we'll walk you through the process of removing a hidden thread aerator effortlessly.

Step One: Preparation

Begin by preparing your workspace. Cover the drain with a towel to catch any small parts that may come loose during the process. Enhance your visibility by placing a mirror over the faucet to get a clearer view of the aerator.

Step Two: Aerator Removal

The preferred method for aerator removal is using the key that came with your faucet. Align the key teeth with the bottom of the aerator and turn it counterclockwise to release the aerator. Don't worry if you don't have the key – a pair of scissors or needle-nose pliers can be excellent substitutes. Simply insert the tips into the grooves and twist.

Once the aerator is removed, take a moment to inspect its condition. If it's in good shape, a quick rinse and debris wipe may be all it needs for reinstallation. However, if there's heavy buildup, it might be time for a replacement.

Step Three: Measurement for Replacement

To ensure you get the right replacement, measure across the base of your aerator from edge to edge. Remember to use millimeters for accurate sizing. If you encounter any difficulties during this process, our troubleshooting videos on can provide helpful insights.
