They are pretty low quality facets. It may not be removable.

It should unscrew like a lightbulb. If you have one of those rubber bottle top openers it helps. If you are going to toss the old aerator anyway, go ahead and use a pair of plyers on it.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

All aerators need to be removable to clean them. You may have to use a pair of channel locks with a towel or rag on the aerator.

If it's a MOEN you may need one of these keys (they're color coded by size).

They aren't going to be putting Moen faucets in a Wildwood.

MOEN or not, most faucet manufacturers are starting to use these internally, o-ring-sealed aerators with a castle nut-type end. There is no standard between manufacturers, or, in many cases, with one faucet to another from the same manufacturer. If I had a different key for every aerator, I wouldnít have room in my tool bag for anything besides aerator keys. Most can be removed by starting to turn them with sharp needle nose pliers or retaining ring pliers, then finish by turning them out with a finger. You donít need to replace them as tightly as they were originally installed ó just use your finger to screw them up enough to where the o-ring seals and your finger begins to not be enough to tighten them any farther ó donít crank them back down with the pliers you used to loosen them. They will stay in-place and be easier to remove the next time.

Gees. I guess I should have said similar to MOEN. The OP said internal threads and thought he was referring to the aerator. I've had MOEN and GLACER BAY faucets in my units and it was only an input. let it go Louis, let it go.
