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 . . ....

It's kind of shocking to read some of these responses on a supposedly homebirth board.
 
For many, breech is considered a version of normal.
 
I have more to say on this topic, but since it's...
