Before installing the faucet, first prepare the installation tools and check if the supporting parts are complete. Common faucet accessories include hoses, rubber washers, showerheads, water drains, crutches, decorative caps, etc.

1. Installation of single hole basin faucet

When purchasing a handmade basin faucet, attention should be paid to the diameter of the water outlet. Most of the faucets in the market are hard pipes for water inlet, so you should pay attention to reserving the height of the water outlet. It is most suitable to move 35 minutes from the basin downwards. When installing, it is necessary to choose a dedicated angle valve, which must be fixed to the cold and hot water pipes of the wall outlet. When you notice a distance between the angle valve and the water pipe on the faucet, purchase a dedicated extension pipe to connect it. Remember, never use other water pipes to connect, because if the water pressure is high, it is easy to fall off and leak, causing damage to you. If the inlet pipe is too long and exceeds the outlet pipe, it can be cut off according to your needs. If the angle is not suitable, it can be moderately bent to the position you need. Remember: Do not bend hard to 90 degrees or greater. When installing the basin to drain water, please do not forget to purchase the small interface of the faucet (faucet short circuit). Please do not forget to flush the water pipes buried in the wall in advance before installation.


2. Installation of shower and bathtub faucets (wall mounted)

After purchasing a shower, bathtub, or wall mounted faucet, you can choose the appropriate height to bury the water pipe. The distance between cold and hot water pipes must reach 15 centimeters. Before installation, you must not forget to flush the water pipe to avoid excessive water quality and damage to the faucet.

Concealed shower and bathtub faucet: After purchasing a concealed faucet, the valve core of the faucet should generally be embedded 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 easily remove the plastic protective cover of the valve core during pre embedding to avoid damage to the valve core caused by cement and other miscellaneous tasks. In addition, when embedding the valve core, attention should also be paid to the up and down, left and right directions of the valve core to prevent it from being buried incorrectly. There is a deviation in the size of the embedded water inlet pipe for wall mounted faucets, and adjustable hooks can be used for positioning.

3. Installation of thermostatic faucet

Before installing the thermostatic faucet, please check if the water pipe is hot on the left and cold on the right. Remember not to install the cold and hot water pipes incorrectly to avoid the faucet not working properly. Gas and solar water heaters cannot use thermostatic faucets because the water pressure is too low. Please do not forget to install a cold and hot water filter when installing a thermostatic faucet.

4. Installation of single hole kitchen faucet

Stability is required, as the kitchen faucet is frequently used and easily loosened when moved around. Therefore, the locking nut must be tightened. There are some faucets on the market that have enlarged nuts to fix the screw tube, 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.

During daily use, the water pressure from tap water is generally 3-5 kilograms, equivalent to 0.3-0.5 Mpa. If the pressure exceeds 6 kilograms, it belongs to high water pressure, and the human body feels uncomfortable during flushing. If the pressure is below 3 kilograms, it can be considered that the water pressure is too low.

In daily life, sometimes it is found that the faucet still drips after tightening, and it drips continuously from the faucet outlet or joint, which not only causes a lot of waste, but sometimes its noise can also cause certain problems. In fact, the structure of the faucet is very simple, and the repair of water leakage can be done by oneself. Generally speaking, the problem of water leakage can be solved by replacing the sealing gasket such as the axial gasket or triangular sealing gasket inside the faucet. However, before undergoing renovation, the main switch of the faucet at home needs to be turned off.

Regarding the repair of water leakage at the faucet joint, the reason for the leakage is mainly due to damage to the sealing tape of the faucet (fixing screw). Therefore, as long as you use pliers to remove the faucet and re roll a new waterproof tape at the fixed screw, the following are the repair steps: first, tighten the faucet, and use pliers to rotate the faucet counterclockwise to remove it. Secondly, turn the threaded hole outward and wrap it 5-6 times clockwise with wind imprinted tape on the threaded part.

Xichu Good News reporter, check if the faucet is properly adjusted and tie it in the clockwise direction with a water wrench. After installation is completed, turn on the main switch and try to confirm if there is still water leakage.

Even if the faucet is securely fastened, the reason for water leakage is:

1. The reason for water leakage at the outlet is due to the wear of the axial gasket inside the faucet. Use pliers to loosen and remove the pressure cap bolt, then use a clamp to remove the shaft gasket and replace it with a new one.

2. The reason for water leakage in the lower gap of the faucet bolt is due to the wear of the triangular sealing gasket inside the pressure cover. You can loosen the screw and remove the bolt head, then loosen the pressure cover and remove it. Then, take out the triangular sealing gasket on the inner side of the pressure cover and replace it with a new one.

3. Leakage at the joint of the connecting pipe: Generally, the cap nut is loose. At this time, you can tighten the cap nut again or replace it with a new U-shaped sealing gasket.

If there is a decrease in water volume found in the faucet, it may be a leakage situation, because the sealing disk of the single gun faucet is stuck with sand and gravel. This phenomenon should be dismantled by a professional repairman to clean the faucet, but if the gasket is damaged, it must be replaced. Generally speaking, the correct use of a faucet refers to not rotating the faucet too tightly, so that the faucet gasket can maintain a lifespan of 7 to 8 years. However, for hot water faucets, due to thermal expansion and contraction, their lifespan is easily reduced. Therefore, it is usually recommended to replace the gaskets on both sides of the faucet at the same time.
