My kitchen sink faucet is (was?) a spray head connected to a flexible metal hose. Somehow, this came undone.
So now the spray head is disconnected. The hose retracted upon disconnection and is about 5-6 inches into the fixture. Shining a flashlight in, I can see the hose, still within the fixture.
So is there an easy way to get this thing out so I can reattach the head? I went under the sink, and can see the hose leading up into the fixture. Trying to push it up doesn’t quite work - it will move an inch or two, but I’m pushing vertically, the fixture runs more horizontally, and it won’t go.
Is there an easy way to get this hose extended through the fixture so I can reconnect? I was gonna bring some industrial tweezers (12") home from the lab but then reflected that they have been in contact with all sorts of chemicals. So my current plan is to buy a new pair of long-length tweezers and try to pull the thing through (the angle is still awkward so I don’t know if this will work.) If anyone knows an easy way, I’d love to hear it.
