WHAT ARE THE PRECAUTIONS FOR INSTALLING THE CONCEALED SHOWER FAUCET?
Concealed shower systems are very popular, especially in modern bathrooms or small bathrooms where space is limited. Though nothing prevents you from opting for a more earthy design or a bigger bathroom.
Thanks to the valves and the piping system hidden under the tiles, the concealed shower is ideal for minimalist-aesthetic bathrooms and any bathroom that has a straight edge and wants to reduce clutter. They're also great if you have a small bathroom and want to make the most of the space. It can be difficult to use a small shower room in an exposed area as the valve can knock while cleaning, reducing water pressure, or accidentally changing the temperature. With the concealed shower set, you can make optimal use of the space.
One problem with choosing a concealed shower is that it can damage the existing decoration and installation costs can be higher because the valves and pipes are behind the tiles. If you want to upgrade the shower tile at the same time, it is recommended that you choose this type of shower.
Precautions for installing a concealed shower faucet:
When installing the concealed shower faucet, the first thing we need to do is determine the height of the mixer valve from the floor. Usually, before installing the concealed shower faucet, we have determined the installation location of the concealed shower faucet. Then the distance between the mixing valve and the floor is usually regulated in a height range of about 90 to 100 cm. During this period we can also make fine adjustments according to our body size.
The reserved wire head of the normally installed concealed shower faucet is buried in the wall tiles. It is best to cover it with a decorative cover. Otherwise, it doesn't look nice. Therefore, it is best for everyone to keep their position when laying the pipeline, usually taking into account the position 15mm above the empty wall so that the silk head can be buried after the tile is completed to ensure the beautiful wall.
The standard distance between the inner elbows of a concealed shower faucet is usually about 10 to 15 cm. Typically, when buying a concealed shower faucet, the seller will provide two adapters so that the water inlet of the mixing valve can be easily connected to the hot and cold water outlet on the wall. However, please try not to use the adapter for transmission, it will be more beautiful.
When buying a concealed shower faucet, we usually have to bury the gate valve in the wall. At this point, we need to pay attention to the thickness of the bathroom wall. We can't choose a place where the wall is too thin to bury the coil. This cannot be embedded well. When embedding the valve insert, make sure not to remove the protective cover of the valve insert in order to protect the valve insert of the faucet. Also, when embedding, pay attention to the up, down, left, and right directions of the coil to avoid covering up the error.
