How to Correct Water Lines that are Reversed

Fig.1 Crescent Wrench 4 inch

Tools and Supplies:

George Baker called my advertisement on a local paper  and found my repair service. He had a plumber replace his bathroom faucet and fill lines and now the plumber refused to return to fix the problem. The cold water faucet was hot and the hot water faucet was cold. He needed a quick fix.

This post shows the two steps to fix this solution.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows a 4-inch Crescent Wrench needed to remove the water lines near the stop valve and cross the the lines. It was a simple fix, the lines were reversed and the water fill lines had to be crossed to fix the problem. 
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the lines are crossed. Now the faucet is working correctly like it should have worked when George had his new faucet replaced.
