Water is the source of life, and the source of life is the faucet. The faucet is a common water intake in household life. Faucet is an indispensable accessory in the home, without it, daily washing and cleaning cannot be carried out. Today, the editor will teach you the knowledge of faucet installation to extend the life of the faucet, so that environmental protection and safety are always at your side.
**, preparation before faucet installation
First, prepare the installation tools and check whether the supporting parts are complete before installation. Common faucet parts are: hoses, rubber washers, showers, drains, crutches, decorative caps, etc.
Second, clean the faucet before installation
Before installing the faucet, you need to flush with water to clean the sediment and impurities in the water pipe and remove the debris in the installation hole. And the accessories in the box are not mixed with impurities, so as not to block or wear the ceramic valve core.
Third, make sure that the left is hot and the right is cold.
When taking over the pipe, remember that the left side is hot water and the right side is cold water, and the distance between the two pipes is 100mm-200mm. After fixing the position of the water inlet joint, remove the faucet, and install the faucet after the wall plasterer is finished to prevent the surface coating of the faucet from being worn and scratched.
Fourth, installation of single-hole basin faucet
During installation, a special angle valve must be selected, and the angle valve must be fixed to the hot and cold water pipes from 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. Be sure not to 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 as needed. If the angle is not appropriate, it can be bent to the required position appropriately.
Fifth, the shower and bathtub faucet installation
After purchasing a concealed faucet, the valve core of the faucet is generally pre-buried in the wall. Before embedding, you must pay attention to the thickness of the bathroom wall. If the wall is too thin, the valve core will not be pre-buried. Cheng Lin reminded that the plastic protective cover of the valve core should not be easily removed 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 embedding the spool to avoid the wrong spool. When the wall-mounted faucet is embedded in the water inlet pipe, there is a deviation in the size, and the adjustable crutches can be used to adjust the position.
