Methods: unscrew the shower, take out the rubber washer with filter screen at the shower inlet, or clean the top spray of the shower

Fault 3: there is noise in the body or piping when closing the sanitary faucet

Cause: the water pressure at home is too high; The handle of sanitary faucet closes rapidly; Poor fixation of cold and hot water pipes; There are obstacles in the water inlet pipe, resulting in sharp changes in water pressure.    

Methods: reduce the water supply pressure (turn down the triangle valve) to avoid rapidly closing the bathroom faucet for reconstruction, clean the pipeline, and check whether the water pipe and connected objects (such as water purifier and water heater) have bad combination.  

 

Fault 4: it is difficult to adjust the temperature, and the water temperature often changes

Cause: the pressure difference between cold and hot water is too large, or the ability of water heater to improve water temperature is not enough

Methods: turn down the hot and cold triangle valve of the water heater (turn counterclockwise) to balance the pressure and ensure that the water temperature of the water heater can keep up with the water outlet speed

Fault 5: unable to obtain higher water temperature

Cause: the power of water heater is insufficient and the position of temperature control knob is wrong
