Replacing a kitchen faucet
Let me start by saying I know absolutely nothing about plumbing so this could be a really stupid question. Someone bought me a new kitchen faucet and after looking over the instructions I figured it looked pretty simple to install. I just looked under my kitchen sink and discovered the plumbing isn't like in the instruction booklet (greeeeat).
There are three copper pipes going directly from the floor to the counter with no shutoff valves. I don't see any spot where the faucet supply tubes connect to the copper pipes, so I'm assuming it's right at the counter top (kinda hard to see up there). There is one shutoff valve with a flexible line going to the dishwasher next to the sink.
So, I don't see any way I could make the new faucet fit (it's a Moen with long supply tubes). Am I missing something or is it time to call a plumber to cut the pipes and add valves?
