My faucet has dipped significantly due to my old wood counter top wearing down from water over time.
Here's how it looks right now
I went out Home Depot and purchased a countermate in attempts to address this issue without having to spend the extra dollars on a new counter top
However, when I began the installation process, I saw this
The instructions tell me that I should be able to install it easily by simplying taking off the water jam nut, putting the metal plate under the damaged counter top and securing the water jam nuts back in.
My question is, given what you've seen, is it still possible to salvage this counter top? Or should I return the countermate and start looking for a new counter top?
If it is possible, what is the course of action that I should take?
