Basin wrench or deep socket?

I need to install four bath faucets, and wonder to remove the mounting nuts from beneath does a plumber use a BASIN wrench or DEEP sockets? Maybe they use both depending on faucet style.

Thanks,

Both...it depends on how old/tight the nuts are. Basin wrench is usually good enough, and the tight work space makes it a good choice. But there is a new wrench available for those plastic wing nuts.

Thumbs up

bill is right, but if they ARE plastic they shouldn't be too tight. most people OVER tighten these nuts. use the wings on the new ones and don't overtighten. LUCK!
