Different faucet classification and cleaning methods
Faucets are divided into basin faucets, shower faucets, thermostatic faucets, etc. The maintenance methods of these different types of faucets are also slightly different.
When buying a single-handle basin faucet, you should pay attention to the diameter of the outlet. Except for TOTO basins, most of them are national standard products on the market. Most of GROHE’s basin faucets are hard pipe water inlets, so you should pay attention to the height of the upper nozzle, 35 working points** from the basin down is appropriate. During installation, an angle valve dedicated to Grohe must be selected, and the angle valve must be fixed to the hot and cold water pipes from the wall. When you find that there is a distance between the angle valve and the water pipe on the faucet, go to your store at the time to purchase a special extension pipe for the GROHE faucet to connect it.
Remember, you must not use other water pipes to connect, because if the water pressure is high, it will easily fall off and leak water, causing you loss. If the inlet pipe is too long to exceed the outlet pipe, the part can be cut off according to your needs. If the angle is not appropriate, you can bend it to the position you need. Remember: Don’t bend to 90 degrees or greater than hard. When installing the basin to drain, please do not forget to purchase the small connector of the faucet (short-circuit the faucet).
Shower, bathtub faucet (wall hanging)
After you buy a shower, bathtub, or wall-mounted faucet, you can choose a suitable height to bury the water pipe. The distance between the hot and cold water pipes must reach 15 work points. You must not forget to flush the water pipe before installation to avoid excessive water quality and damage to the faucet. If the elbow between the faucet and the wall joint is too long, you can cut off a part of the 4-point wire. Remember: the 6-point wire connected to the faucet does not seem to be cut randomly.
Concealed shower, bathtub faucet
After purchasing a concealed faucet, the valve core of the faucet is generally pre-buried in the wall. Be sure to pay attention to the thickness of the bathroom wall before embedding. If the wall is too thin, the spool cannot be embedded. Do not remove the plastic protective cover of the valve core easily when embedding, so as not to damage the valve core due to cement and other chores. In addition, you should pay attention to the up and down, left and right directions of the spool when embedding the spool to avoid the wrong spool.
After you install the shower and bathtub faucets, don’t forget the filter in the shower pipe when you need to install the shower. When installing the shower, the water pressure must not be too high, generally 1&mDASh;—3 kg is the best, not more than 5 kg. If the water pressure is too high, the water flow restrictor in the valve core of the faucet can also be opened to reduce the water pressure, which can also achieve the effect of water saving.
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 to prevent the faucet from not working properly. Gas and solar water heaters cannot use thermostatic faucets because the water pressure is too low. Don’t forget to install the hot and cold water filter when installing the thermostatic faucet.
In the process of using the faucet, it is necessary to frequently maintain and clean the scale on the surface of the faucet and the water sand in the spout to protect the chrome layer on the surface of the faucet as bright as new (GROHE special cleaning fluid, special cleaning cloth). Do not use rough towels and cloths to wipe the faucet, so as not to scratch the chrome layer, and do not touch the faucet with acid-alkaline items to avoid destroying its brightness.
