How To Remove A Kitchen Sink Aerator | Pull-Down Faucet Aerator Removal

Welcome to – Your Go-To Source for OEM Replacement Aerators. In this video guide, we'll walk you through the process of removing a kitchen sink aerator, specifically focusing on the drop-in model. Follow these steps for a hassle-free experience.

Step 1: Identify Your Aerator Model

Before starting, determine whether your aerator is a drop-in or hidden threaded model. Hidden threaded models typically have a crown-like ring around the screen, while drop-in models only display the screen structure. For this guide, we'll be addressing the drop-in model.

Step 2: Gather Your Tools

Prepare by covering the drain with a towel to catch any small parts. You'll need needle-nose pliers or tweezers to assist in the removal process.

Step 3: Aerated Aerator Removal

Locate the grooves around the aerator screen – these are the key to a smooth removal process. Using your needle-nose pliers or tweezers, position them in the grooves and turn counterclockwise to remove the entire spray face. Once the spray face is off, take out the aerator and washer.

Step 4: Measure for Replacement

Measure across the base of your aerator from edge to edge. Ensure you measure in millimeters to identify the correct size. If your aerator seems stuck or you encounter any issues, refer to our troubleshooting videos available on for additional guidance.
