Would you like to know how to easily install a sink faucet? Changing the faucet may seem complicated, indecisive and dangerous, but installing it is a very simple process and thanks to our friend from La Casa Atelier we will see it below:
Which material do i need?
- 1 water collection tank
- 1 key
- 1 new faucet with hoses and accessories (we have lots of them in Thebath b)
What steps do I have to take?
1 – CLOSE THE GENERAL STOP POINT
To make sure that the water comes out, the first thing we need to do is close the general bathroom shut-off pipe. Somewhere in the bathroom you will find two taps, one for hot and one for cold water. Usually hidden behind a door or near the ceiling. It is important to close both.
2 – CLOSE THE STOP
To avoid local leaks in the tap water supply, we also need to close the plugs of the tap water ourselves. You can find them where the sleeves end. You can then turn on the faucet so that the water remaining in the pipes eventually comes out and check that no water is coming out.
3 – REMOVE THE CAP
We let go of the tap that is threaded below. In some cases it can be more difficult than others, but you should be able to get it free.
The screw to be loosened is usually long, so you will have to loosen it for a while
4 – RELEASE THE SLEEVES
Use a wrench to loosen the faucet sleeves.
Because of the possible water droplets, it is advisable to place a container underneath.
5 – REMOVE THE CAP FROM ABOVE
The faucet is attached to the sink or work surface with a screw and thread. By loosening the wire, the faucet can be removed by pulling up the sleeves.
6 – REPLACE THE SHEET
We open the package and take out a new faucet to replace it. It usually contains sleeves and other parts. In this case our friend installed a Tempo faucet, but you can see many faucets in our sink faucet section
7 – turn Sockets and screws
We put the sleeves in the new faucet, first we can do it manually, then we need the key to adjust better and avoid losses. Then we tighten the long screw again.
8 – ADJUST THE LOWER PISTON
We roll the sleeves through the hole and turn on the faucet below.
9 – CONNECT THE PIPES
Reconnect the hoses to the water supply and tighten with a wrench so that they are watertight. (If you want, you can use the previous hoses to avoid unscrewing them from the water supply, but since they are usually in the faucet, it’s better to replace them and make sure they are new and in good condition.)
10 – BOISSON OPEN STOP
Finally, it is enough to open the tap faucet and the general faucet to make sure there are no leaks. And done! You have now installed a new sink faucet that costs 0 workers. What do you think? Leave us a comment and let us know if this mini guide has helped you
