So it can be imaged the function of shower is very important.  So why should we install a conceal shower in the bathroom?

What is conceal shower?

The whole pipe of the canceal shower is embedded in the wall, and there is only one nozzle and switch outside. The whole bathroom looks like a simple style, which is suitable for small-area bathrooms. Because the bathroom area is small and the water pipe enters the wall, part of the space is saved, making the overall effect of the bathroom looks beautiful and generous.

Why install a conceal shower?

Aesthetics: Conceal shower > Integral shower

The installation method of the integral shower is open installation, which means that its pipe fittings are exposed, so the visual effect get greatly reduce. The hidden shower is concealed. The pipe is buried in the wall. Only the shower nozzle and valve are outside, which is beautiful and atmospheric.

Space saving: Conceal shower > Integral shower

The hardware fittings of the conceal shower are hidden in the wall, which will not occupy too much space in the bathroom. But there are more exposed fittings, the integral shower occupies more bathroom space, which makes people feel depressed and reduces the activity space.

Maintenance: Integral shower > Conceal shower

This is also the reason why the conceal shower is not popular now. The accessories are in the wall. Once the shower has a problem, it is not easy to maintain, and the integral shower will save a lot of worry.

Installation method of conceal shower

It’s very simple to say, that is, all pipelines are hidden in the wall, and only a water control handle is left outside the wall. However, there are still many points to pay attention to during installation:

First, don’t install the cold and hot water supply pipes upside down. Generally, there are cold and hot signs on the faucet. If there is no sign, the left side facing the faucet is the hot water pipe and the right side is the cold water pipe.

Second, after installation, it is best to remove the foaming device and shower head first, let the water flow out of the pipe, wash away the impurities, and then install it.

Third, when connecting the sprinkler water inlet hose, do not wrap the sealing tape. Tighten the nut by hand without using a wrench, so that the hose will not be damaged.

Fourth, if heating welding is required during installation, do not forget to remove plastic parts such as valve core first.

Last, before the faucet enters the wall, the embedded depth of the faucet shall be determined according to the instructions, and the pressure test shall be carried out on the connection part of the faucet to check whether there is leakage and repair it. During the pressure test, don’t forget to empty all the air in the pipeline and faucet.

How to choose a shower?

Look at the surface coating

It is best to use 150 ° chromium plating on the shower surface. It can keep the high temperature for 1 hour without blistering and wrinkling, and will not corrode even if it is monitored by acetic acid salt spray for 24 hours. Therefore, when selecting, you can see its gloss and smoothness. A bright and smooth shower shows better quality.

Look at the spray effect

The appearance and shape of the shower are similar, so be sure to see its spraying effect when selecting. A good shower can ensure that the spray of each small orifice is balanced, so you can test the water to see whether the spray water flow is uniform.

Look at the accessories

The accessories of shower will directly affect the comfort of use. When purchasing, you can check whether the water pipe and lifting rod are flexible, whether the sprinkler connection is equipped with anti twist ball bearing, whether the lifting rod is equipped with rotary controller, etc.

Look at the spool

The service life of the shower will be directly affected by the valve core. A good shower uses a ceramic valve core, which is smooth and frictionless. When selecting, you can manually twist the switch, which makes it feel comfortable. If it is smooth, it means that the shower can be kept smooth and reliable in use.
