How to install a bathroom faucet

Faucet installation to the

vanity sink or countertop:

1. Unpack the faucet and check the contents. It should come with 2 hoses, a rubber O-ring for the top of the sink, two or one threaded pin, fixing nuts, a rubber seal on the bottom of the sink and a sealing metal plate.

2. Screw the threaded pins into the holes in the faucet. There may be one on cheap faucets and two on more expensive ones. It is important for them to be made of stainless steel. Otherwise, after a while, due to condensation that is present on any faucets, they will rot, and It will be problematic to change the faucet, or even impossible – this is a fact. The pins may have a hole for a hexagon, but not all. It is important to check when buying whether they can be easily screwed into the holes of the faucet.

3. Screw the hoses into the water supply holes. As a rule, a wrench is used. Hoses must be reinforced. In cheap faucets there are Chinese ones, which crumble from water like dust, which is fraught with huge problems. They can be bought separately and preferably by size, Don’t buy too long ones since the hoses do not stand strong fractures and bends.

4. Install the gasket in the groove of the faucet. It serves to prevent water from flowing under the faucet and leaking onto the floor. If after the installation the elastic comes out – glue it. Hence, it will not move out of the groove and will stick tightly to the sink.

5. Put the sink vertically, so it is more convenient, and insert the faucet into the hole, carefully pushing first one hose, then the other.

6. Insert a rubber gasket from the bottom of the sink, and then a metal one.

7. Fasten the fastening nuts, holding the faucet so that the spout looks clearly in the center of the sink.

8. Tighten the nuts with a wrench gently. Ceramics is fragile enough. The faucet is installed.

9. Now screw on the siphon. It’s good to use a corrugated siphon, which bends where necessary. Do not forget to make a hydraulic seal so as not to stink from the sewer.

10. Install the bottom gasket and press the siphon to the bottom of the sink outlet. That is why it is important that the outlet is even, otherwise the gasket may not press well and cause a leak.

11. Install the upper gasket and insert the outlet into the sink.

12. Tight the siphon with a screw, gently. The siphon is installed.

13. Prepare a place for a vanity unit with a sink. Of course, everything must be wiped and clean beforehand. The water and sewerage are in the right place. Since the planning was executed according to all dimensions, which is very important.

14. Put the vanity in place and level with adjusting legs. This is what a cabinet on legs is good for. And even if water leaks on the floor, it will not ruin the furniture.

15. Install the sink on the top of the cabinet. The sink has holes on the back wall for fixing it to the wall using a special set of screws that can be purchased in a specialized store or on the market.

16. Mark it with a pencil on the tile where the sink is attached to the wall.

17. Move the vanity with the sink. Shut off the water and screw in instead of the plugs barrels with corners, threads up, then hoses for water will be wound there.

18. Drill holes for the sink mountings, skrew it.

19. Attach the sink to the place, having previously siliconized the rear part so that the spray does not flow behind the sink.

20. Press the sink to the wall using a washer and a nut. Use a wrench to turn both nuts in turn. But gently, remember that ceramic is fragile.

21. Fasten the hoses, insert the siphon into the sewer. Everything is ready. Check for leaks.
