Installing plumbing lines around L bends can be tricky, especially if you are new to plumbing. Here are a few tools you will need, along with some quick steps to help you through the process:

Step 1 - Shut Water Off

Make sure that you are shutting the water and power off to the area you are working on. This will ensure that you don't end up making a mess or damaging anything.

Step 2 - Attach Flexible Line

Now you can take the plumbing line and attach it to the faucet. You may need to use a wrench to tighten it. Make sure that you are tightening each of the nuts completely. If you have a newer set of wig nuts, you may need to turn them by hand. Or start them out with your hands and then use a wrench or pliers to make them tighter.

Step 3 - Turn Water On and Check for Leaks

Now that it is installed, you can turn the water and power back on to the area. Also, check to make sure that everything is working properly and that you aren't experiencing leaks at all.
