Bath mixer installation method

Installation of single-hole basin faucet. When buying single-handle basin faucet, you should pay attention to the diameter of the outlet. Nowadays, most of the water in the market belongs to the hard pipe inlet, so you should pay attention to the height of the upper nozzle. From the basin to the bottom 35 work points is the most Suitable. During installation, 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.

Remember, you must not use other water pipes to connect, because if the water pressure is high, it will easily fall off and leak water, causing you loss. If the inlet pipe is too long to exceed the outlet pipe, the part can be cut off according to your needs. If the angle is not suitable, you can bend it to the position you need. Remember: Don’t bend hard to 90 degrees or more than 90 degrees. When installing the basin to drain, please do not forget to purchase the small connector of the faucet (short-circuit the faucet). Please don’t forget to flush the water pipes buried in the wall before you install it.

Before installing the thermostatic bath shower mixer bar, please check whether the water pipes are hot on the left and cold on the right. Remember not to connect the hot and cold water pipes wrongly to avoid the faucet not working properly. Gas and solar water heaters cannot use thermostatic faucets because the water pressure is too low. Don’t forget to install the hot and cold water filter when installing the thermostatic faucet.

Installation of shower and bath mixers (wall-mounted) After you purchase shower, bathtub, and wall-mounted faucets, you can choose a suitable height to bury the water pipe. The distance between the hot and cold water pipes must reach 15 cm.bulk glitter Before installation, you must not forget to flush the water pipe to prevent the water from being too hard and causing damage to the faucet.

Concealed shower and bath mixers: After purchasing a concealed faucet, the valve core of the faucet is generally pre-buried in the wall. Be sure to pay attention to the thickness of the bathroom wall before embedding. If the wall is too thin, the spool will not be embedded. 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 IEC 61196-4 embedding the spool, so as to avoid the wrong spool. When the wall-mounted faucet is pre-embedded in the water inlet pipe, there is a deviation in the size, and the adjustable crutches can be used for calibration.
