Installing the faucet is a very simple matter, so everyone usually solves it at home without trouble to the plumber. But we must know that if the installation of the faucet is not handled well, it will cause great inconvenience to life, so today I will tell you how to install the faucet.
1. Preliminary preparations
Before installing the faucet, check whether the supporting parts are complete and the installation tools are ready. Common faucet accessories include hoses, rubber washers, shower heads, decorative caps, and crutches.
2.Clean before installation
Before installing the faucet, you must clean the water pipe, drain water to clean the sediment impurities in the pipe, impurities in the installation holes, etc., and insist that the accessories in the box have not been mixed with impurities, so as not to block the valve core during installation.
3. Left hot water and right cold water
When taking over, keep in mind that the left side is the hot water pipe and the right side is the cold water pipe. The distance between the two is 100-200mm. After the inlet pipe joint is fixed, remove the faucet. Wait until the wall masonry is completed before installing the faucet. In order to prevent the surface coating from being worn out.
4.Single hole faucet installation
For the faucet of the single-hole basin, a special angle valve must be selected during installation, and the angle valve must be fixed with the hot and cold water pipe from the wall. If there is a distance between the angle valve and the water pipe on the faucet, you need to buy a special pipe to lengthen it. If the water inlet pipe is too long than the water outlet pipe, it can be cut off as required. If the angle is not suitable, it can be bent to the required position appropriately.
5.Shower and bathtub faucet installation
If it is a wall-mounted faucet, it is necessary to choose a suitable height buried water pipe, and the distance between the hot and cold water pipes is about 20 cm or more. If it is a concealed faucet, the valve core of the faucet should be embedded in the wall. When embedding, pay attention to the thickness of the wall. Do not remove the plastic protective film of the valve core during embedding, so as to avoid cement damage to the valve core during embedding. In addition, pay attention to adjust the valve core’s up, down, left and right directions during embedding to avoid being buried wrong.
