Just when i thought i was prepare for my first UC , iv come across some issues Im 10 days away from my due date and right now im having trouble wiht  my faucet adapter , i have a newer sink model and i bought the adapter to screw on to but the problem is i cannot unscrew the darn areoter thingy! Its really hard and i have try to unscew with pliers buts its really stuck on there , my hubby was suggesting on buying a hose to fit on the faucet and then just clamp it so we can get the wate flowing.


has anyone deal with this before with the new sink models this is the kind of faucet i have:

Maybe try to find the product info, not from HD, but from the maker of the faucet (it's pretty, BTW).  See if there are clues there for getting off that aerator!  =(  Otherwise, I have no idea . . . I need to do a test run myself.

I imagine it being like trying to get a lid off of a jar. I would try tapping the threading with a wrench to loosen it up. I would also use a vice grip not pliers, you'll get a better grip on it and have more torque
