First, the faucet removal steps

1. Disassemble the old spool

First of all, we have to close the main water valve to avoid waste of water during subsequent construction. Then buckle the red and blue marks on the faucet handle, use a screwdriver to turn the screw counterclockwise, you can take off the handle, and then use a wrench to remove the valve core, open the gland, and take out the innermost ceramic valve core .

After closing the main valve, we can remove the rubber ring from the faucet. If you observe carefully, you can find that there are red and blue rubber bands on the faucet, which are mainly used to distinguish hot and cold water. Therefore, everyone must remember the location so that there will be no error after the installation is back.

3. Install the new spool

Remove the new valve core, insert the new faucet valve core with the handle, and adjust the direction and position of the valve core in time. When the spool handle is turned to the left and right ends, it indicates that the water is closed. If the spool is in the same direction as itself, it means that it is in a state of draining water. After installing the faucet spool, use a screwdriver to tighten the red and blue caps.

2. Explanation of the spool material of the faucet

1. Stainless steel valve core

The stainless steel spool is one of the best spools at the moment. It is not rusty and has antibacterial properties that are unanimously liked by consumers. However, the material requirements are very high. If the stainless steel valve core is fake and inferior, it will still rust and cause pollution.

2. Copper spool

The quality of the copper spool is very heavy and the price is not low. It is also one of the ideal spool materials. However, the quality requirements are also very high. If the copper quality is not good, it is easy to produce scale and affect the water quality.
