Removing an aerator from a faucet can be a simple task if you have the right tools. One such tool is an aerator key, also known as a cache key. In this blog post, we will go over the steps on how to remove an aerator using an aerator key.

How To Remove Aerator From Faucet Using An Aerator Key

Step 1: Locate the Aerator

The first step in removing an aerator is to locate it. The aerator is typically located at the end of the faucet spout. It is a small, cylindrical piece that screws onto the end of the spout.

Step 2: Gather the Tools

To remove the aerator, you will need an aerator key. These can be purchased at most hardware stores. They come in different sizes, so make sure to get one that fits the size of your aerator.

Step 3: Remove the Aerator

Once you have the aerator key, place it over the aerator, making sure that the notches on the key fit into the grooves on the aerator. Turn the key counterclockwise to loosen the aerator. Once it is loose, you can remove it by hand.

Step 4: Clean the Aerator

Once the aerator is removed, you can clean it. Use a small brush or a toothbrush to clean away any debris or mineral buildup. You can also soak the aerator in white vinegar for a few minutes to remove any hard water stains.

Step 5: Replace the Aerator

Once the aerator is clean, you can replace it by screwing it back onto the end of the faucet spout. Make sure it is securely in place and turn on the water to check for any leaks.
