What should I do if the faucet is broken in the wall

The faucet is a valve that controls the flow of water. It is our most common hardware accessory. Whether it is the kitchen, toilet or laundry room at home, we need to use the faucet whenever there is water. However, when we are replacing a long-used faucet, the lack of experience often leads to improper operation. After the accident, the faucet breaks in the wall. So when we encounter this kind of thorny problem in life, how should we deal with it? Let’s analyze the reason why the faucet is broken in the wall and the specific solution.

What should I do if the faucet is broken in the wall

Why does the faucet break in the wall? The investigation found that there are two main reasons for the faucet to break in the wall:

1. It may be that the quality of the accessories we purchased is not good and the installation is too tight during installation. If it is your own home decoration, it is recommended to go to large-scale building materials to purchase branded products, there will be greater assurance. In addition, during installation, it is sufficient to ensure that there is no leakage. Only raw material belts are allowed on the materials, and hemp is not allowed.

2. Of course, the main reason is that we used improper force when disassembling the faucet. When disassembling, it is very tight. Don’t use excessive force. You can drop a little liquid helper and rust remover on the thread, and then disassemble it after a while.

Common repair methods for faucets broken in the wall:

1. Go to the hardware store in advance to buy a guideline for floor tiles to facilitate opening the wall. Then use needle-nose pliers to clamp a small cement nail with your left hand, and use a nail hammer with your right hand to drive the cement nail into the joint. It will be done soon. The first chance of success is estimated to be only 30% to 40%. Novices must be patient. You can also use a hacksaw blade to pull out an introduction, and use a flat-blade screwdriver to knock it out to rotate it. You can also find a saw blade to saw two opposite notches on the pipe inside the wall, use a steel sheet of relative width and sufficient hardness, just like using a flat-blade screwdriver to screw a screw, and use pliers to remove the broken wire.

2. There is a tool for broken thread extractor in the hardware store. If you don’t have it, you can buy it online. You can insert it into the broken part of the thread and turn it counterclockwise. Use even force to remove the broken screw. Use the fourth method with rust loosening agent: re-tapping to make abrasive tools if possible.

It is worth noting that when the faucet is being repaired, try to unload it, and not use too much force to unload it back and forth. If it is loose, unload it quickly. Always remember: the faucet is turned on counterclockwise! Turned off clockwise! No matter if it is placed upside down or horizontally. If you are not sure, please ask the water and electricity master to deal with it, so as not to damage the inner wire and cause more trouble. **Afterwards, it is recommended to buy good quality faucets to avoid repeating the same mistakes.

I believe that after taking the above suggestions, we can calmly deal with the problem of a broken faucet in the wall.
