Installation of sanitary faucet

Posted on April 01 2022

In the whole home decoration, only the kitchen and bathroom will use the bathroom faucet, but although only these two places will use it, the types of bathroom faucets used are also diverse. The installation of different sanitary faucets will also be different. Today, let's introduce the installation methods of various sanitary faucets.

Before installation, first prepare installation tools and check whether the supporting parts are complete. Common faucet parts include hose, rubber washer, shower, water removal, crutch, decorative cap, etc. Next, I will introduce the installation methods of various sanitary faucets.

1、 Installation of Single Hole Kitchen Faucet

It is required to be stable, because the kitchen faucet is used frequently, and it is easy to loosen when it is moved around, so the lock nut must be tightened. At present, there are some faucets on the market to increase the nut fixation for the screw pipe, which has a good stabilizing effect. If the problem of water removal and lifting can be solved, it will be a popular trend in the future.

2、 Installation of single hole basin faucet

When buying a single handle basin faucet, you should pay attention to the diameter of the water outlet. Now most of the water inlet in the market belongs to hard pipe, so you should pay attention to reserving the height of the water inlet. 35 points from the basin down is the most appropriate. During installation, the special angle valve must be selected, and the angle valve must be fixed with the cold and hot water pipe of the wall outlet. When you find a distance between the angle valve and the faucet water supply pipe, buy a special extension pipe to connect. Remember, do not use other water pipes to connect, because if the water pressure is large, it is easy to fall off and leak, causing losses to you. If the inlet pipe is too long and exceeds the outlet pipe, the part can be cut off according to your needs. If the angle is not appropriate, it can be moderately bent to the position you need according to your needs.

Remember: do not bend hard to 90 degrees or more. When installing the basin to remove water, please don't forget to buy the small interface of the faucet (faucet short circuit). Before you install, please don't forget to flush the water pipes buried in the wall in advance.

3、 Installation of shower and bathtub faucet (wall hanging)

When you buy Shower, bathtub and wall faucet, you can choose the appropriate height to bury the outlet pipe. The distance between hot and cold water pipes must reach 15 cm. Before installation, you must not forget to flush the water pipe to avoid damage to the faucet due to the hard water quality.

Install shower and bathtub faucets: after purchasing concealed faucets, generally embed the valve core of the faucet in the wall. Pay attention to the thickness of toilet wall before embedding. If the wall is too thin, the valve core will not be embedded. The plastic protective cover of the valve core shall not be removed easily during embedding, so as to avoid damage to the valve core by cement and other chores during embedding. In addition, pay attention to the up, down, left and right directions of the valve core when embedding the valve core, so as to avoid the wrong embedding of the valve core. When the wall mounted faucet is embedded with the water inlet pipe, if there is a deviation in the size, the adjustable abductor can be used to calibrate the position.

4、 Installation of thermostatic faucet

Before installing the thermostatic faucet, please check whether the water pipe is hot on the left and cold on the right. Remember not to connect the cold and hot water pipes wrong, so as to prevent the faucet from working normally. Thermostatic sanitary faucets cannot be used for gas and solar water heaters because the water pressure is too low. Please don't forget to install the cold and hot water filter screen when installing the constant temperature sanitary faucet.
