Talk about the installation of faucet in detail
In the entire home decoration, only the kitchen and bathroom will use the faucet, but although only these two places will use it, the types of faucets used are also diverse. The installation of different faucets will be different, today I will introduce the installation methods of various faucets.
Before installation, you must first prepare the installation tools, and check whether the supporting parts are complete before installation. Common faucet parts include: hoses, rubber washers, showers, drainers, crutches, decorative caps, etc. Next, I will introduce the installation methods of various faucets.
1. Installation of single-hole kitchen faucet
It is required to be stable, because the kitchen faucet is used frequently, and it is easily loosened when being moved around, so the lock nut must be tightened. At present, there are some faucets on the market to fix the screw tube with enlarged nut. This kind of stabilization effect is very good. 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 spout. Nowadays, most of the water in the market belongs to the hard pipe, so you should pay attention to the height of the upper spout. It is appropriate to go down from the basin 35 work points**. 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. 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: Do not 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 pipe buried in the wall before you install it.
3. Installation of shower and bathtub faucets (wall hanging)
After you have purchased a shower, bathtub, or wall-mounted faucet, you can choose a suitable height to bury the water pipe. The distance between the hot and cold water pipes must reach 15 cm. You must not forget to flush the water pipe before installation to avoid excessive water quality and damage to the faucet.
Installation of shower and bathtub faucets: 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 valve core 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 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.
4. Installation of thermostatic faucet
Before installing the thermostatic faucet, please check whether the water pipes are hot on the left and cold on the other. 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.
