Forum Title: Tips For Working Under A Deep Kitchen Sink
Any tips for working under a deep kitchen sink? Several years ago I had to replace a sprayer hose and it was a struggle. The sprayer hose connection did not swivel so the entire hose had to rotate as I tightened it. Also, I didn't have an open end ratcheting wrench and had to keep repositioning it as the swing space was limited. I bought a set of ratcheting wrenches the next day. The hose is leaking again....haven't checked to see if it just loosened or the hose itself has split. It's a Rohl and pricey. The hose is braided....I would have thought it would have lasted more than a few years. I'm not looking forwarded to getting under there again and hoping somebody has some good ideas other than hiring somebody else to do the work.

Any sink with limited access can be a bear. Sometimes I have had to remove the disposal and drain to get back up in behind the sink.
