Choosing the Right Aerator

Aerator size comparison

1. Determine whether your faucet spout is female or male threaded. Female-threaded spouts have their threads inside the end of the spout; male threads are found on the outside of the spout. If your faucet has female threads, you'll need a male threaded aerator. If your faucet has male threads, you'll need a female threaded aerator.

2. Now, you'll need to find out what size aerator you require. The easiest way to do so is by grabbing some spare change: a quarter, nickel, and dime. You'll compare these coins to the size of your existing aerator (or the outlet of the faucet spout itself).

  • A Regular/Standard size aerator (aka M24 x 1 thread Male or M22 x 1 thread Female) will be roughly the diameter of a quarter
  • A "Tom Thumb" size aerator (aka M18 x 1 thread Male or M16 x 1 thread Female) will be roughly the diameter of a dime
