The freestanding bathtub faucet is a single handle mixing faucet with bath and bath function. Its main body is made of high-quality brass casting surface. The plated ceramic valve core has a reversing device at the position of the water outlet to change the direction of the mixed water flow or directly flow in. The bathtub is either sprayed from the hose to the shower. After purchasing a floor-standing bathtub faucet, the spool of the sink is usually pre-buried on the wall. Be sure to pay attention to the thickness of the bathroom wall before embedding. If the wall is too thin, the spool will not be buried. The plastic protective cover of the valve plug should not be easily removed when it is buried, so as to prevent the cement and other chores from damaging the valve core when it is buried. In addition, when pre-burying the valve core, you should also pay attention to the up and down and left and right directions of the valve core to avoid the valve core being buried.
