What Should be Considered When Installing a Bathtub Faucet?
Bathtub faucet installation height.
Whether the height of the bathtub faucet is suitable is directly related to the user's convenience and comfort. The bathtub can be divided into a freestanding bathtub and a countertop bathtub according to the installation. The freestanding bathtub can be placed against the wall and can be equipped with a concealed bathtub faucet. Independently placed generally with a floor-standing bathtub faucet. The width of the bathtub on the countertop is 900mm, the height of the bathtub bottom from the ground is 100mm, the height of the bathtub is 550mm, and the installation height of the bathtub faucet is 750～850mm (concealed type). This ensures a comfortable experience when bathing. The mixing valve depends on the height of the bathtub. It is appropriate to be 20-30 cm higher than the bathtub. Too high is easy to splash water, and if it is too low, the hose will be affected. The height of the bathtub is generally 600MM, so the height of the wall-mounted faucet is 80-90 cm.
How to install the bathtub faucet?
1. Installation of single-hole basin faucet When purchasing a single-handle basin faucet, you should pay attention to the diameter of the water outlet. Now, most of the water in the market is a hard pipe, so you should pay attention to the height of the water outlet, which is 35 cm from the basin downward. Suitable. When installing, a special angle valve must be selected, and the angle valve must be fixed with the hot and cold water pipes of 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.
2. Be sure not to use other water pipes to connect, because if the water pressure is high, it is easy to fall off, leak water, and cause losses to you. If the water inlet pipe is too long and exceeds the water outlet pipe, you can cut off the part according to your needs. If the angle is not suitable, you can moderately bend it to the position you need. Remember: Do not bend hard to 90 degrees or more. Don't forget to flush the pipes buried in the wall before you install.
3. Installation of the 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 hot and cold water pipes wrongly, so as 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 the hot and cold water filter when installing the thermostatic faucet.
4. Installation of bathtub faucet (wall-mounted). After purchasing a shower, bathtub, and wall-mounted faucet, you can choose the appropriate height to bury the water pipe. The distance between the hot and cold water pipes must reach 15 cm. Don't forget to flush the water pipe before installation, so as not to damage the faucet due to excessive water quality. Concealed bathtub faucet: After purchasing the concealed faucet, the valve core of the faucet should be pre-buried in the wall. Be sure to pay attention to the thickness of the bathroom wall before pre-embedding. If the wall is too thin, the valve core will not be able to be embedded. Do not easily remove the plastic protective cover of the valve core during pre-embedding, so as to avoid cement and other miscellaneous damage to the valve core during pre-embedding. In addition, when pre-embedding the valve core, you should also pay attention to the up and down, left and right directions of the valve core, so as to avoid the wrong valve core.
Finally, before installing the bathtub faucet, the dirty water, residue, sand, and impurities remaining in the water pipe should be rinsed off before installing the faucet to prevent the bubbler from being blocked or the valve core is damaged.
