Installation steps and precautions for the faucet?

Since the installation of the faucet is an important step in the use of the faucet, the installer needs to handle it carefully, so the following five installation steps need to be clarified:

1. Preparation of installation tools First prepare the installation tools and check whether the supporting parts are complete before installation. Common faucet parts are: hoses, rubber washers, showers, drainers, crutches, decorative caps, etc.

2. Clean the faucet before installation and flush it with water, wash the sediment and impurities in the water pipe, remove the debris in the installation hole, and check that the accessories in the box are not mixed with impurities, so as not to block or wear the ceramic valve core .

3. When the left hot water and the right cold water take over, remember that the left is hot water and the right is cold water, and the distance between the two pipes is 100mm-200mm. After fixing the position of the water inlet joint, remove the faucet, and install the faucet after the wall plastering work is completed to prevent the surface coating of the faucet from being worn and scratched

4. When installing the single-hole basin faucet, a special angle valve must be selected, and the angle valve must be fixed to the hot and cold water pipes out of the wall. When you find that there is a distance between the angle valve and the water pipe on the faucet, buy a special extension pipe to connect it. Here is a reminder from Jiuzheng Building Materials Network that you must not use other water pipes to connect, because if the water pressure is high, it will easily fall off and leak water, which will cause you loss. If the inlet pipe is too long to exceed the outlet pipe, the part can be cut off as needed. If the angle is not suitable, it can be bent to the required position appropriately.

5. Installation of shower and bathtub faucets. After purchasing a concealed faucet, the valve core of the faucet is generally embedded in the wall. Before embedding, you must pay attention to the thickness of the bathroom wall. If the wall is too thin, the valve core will not be able to Buried. Do not remove the plastic protective cover of the valve core easily during pre-embedding, so as to avoid damage to the valve core by cement and other chores during pre-embedding. In addition, you should pay attention to the up and down, left and right directions of the spool when embedding the spool, so as not to embed the spool incorrectly. When the wall-mounted faucet is embedded in the water inlet pipe, there is a deviation in the size, and the adjustable crutches can be used to adjust the position.
