Installation and disassembly of the basin faucet
Abstract:Installation and disassembly of the basin faucet
The basin faucet is one of the most commonly used hardware in the home, because it is prone to problems when used frequently. Once the faucet has a problem, it will inevitably be disassembled and even repaired and replaced. After confirmation, the installation process will be involved. In fact, the installation and disassembly of the basin faucet are relatively simple, but many people still don't understand the specific operation steps. This article will introduce you to a basin faucet installation and removal related issues.
1. Take out the packaged basin faucet and check whether the accessories are complete before use. Before installation, clean the area around the installation port to ensure that there is no dirt in the water supply pipe and keep the water inlet pipe clean. If you don't want the faucet to scratch, wear gloves when installing.
2. Remove the rubber gasket from the tap of the basin, insert it into the water inlet pipe and tighten it. After the first inlet hose passes through the threaded joint, the inlet end of the second inlet hose passes through the threaded joint and is screwed into the air inlet. During the installation process, pay attention to the control direction, the force is evenly applied, and then tighten the screw joints.
3. Put the two water inlet hoses into the rubber pad, cover and tighten the lock nut that fixes the faucet, and then tighten the sleeve. The positions of the two inlet hoses and the angle valve joints should be tightened separately, but it is best not to use excessive force to avoid deformation or twisting. So in three steps, the basin faucet is installed.
The above are the steps to install the basin faucet, and then explain the removal steps.
1. Use a wrench to separate the water inlet pipe from the hose. It is necessary to control the component force. If the pipe is accidentally broken, it will not be good. If the water inlet pipe in the home is open, you can hold the water pipe with one hand when separating, and use a wrench with the other hand to make it easier to separate.
2. Remove the faucet firmware of the fixed basin, allowing you to easily take the faucet. Usually this process is very simple, but if the basin has been used for a long time, the hose will appear brittle, or the location of the firmware has been rusted, this removal process is more troublesome. You can put a few drops of oil on the rusty place and turn on the tap. If you can't unscrew it, try to use a saw to remove the rusty part, and then unscrew the faucet.
