Install faucet for kitchen – instructions
Well, never one yourself water tap installed in the kitchen? But you do not want to admit it and get someone to help you? You do not have to do it! We help you to avoid this embarrassing situation by giving some very quick and appropriate guidance tips.
There are just a few simple steps you need to take to successfully faucet exchanges.
Turn off the water
Some people may laugh at this point. But in fact, sometimes you forget that you have to turn off the water for the first time before you replace the kitchen faucet.
Now comes the other question, which I hope you do not feel offensive. Do you know where the cock is? Mostly he is next to the water meter. Turn this to.
Then turn on the mixer tap. In the faucet there is usually a bit of collected water. This must happen first. Sometimes you have several conduit during installation. Turn all on before starting work.
Loosening the connections
At this point you have two possible situations. Either the tubes end with press fitting. Or you have two pickups under the sink. In both cases, you should break up and disconnect the connections. Use a loose key.
Remove the faucet
In both cases you have a tube with external thread. It goes through the opening of the sink and is attached to the lower side something. You would have to loosen this lock with the key. Then you can also take it off by hand!
Already you can remove the old faucet.
Mount the new kitchen faucet
The new faucet in the kitchen has to be the same as the old one. It has to pass through the opening of the washbasin and be sealed in the same way as the tap just taken out. You need to check if the tap is set in the correct position.
Have you installed a new stainless steel sink or composite surface? In this case, you would have to create a new opening with the appropriate diameter. It has to match the tube of the kitchen faucet.
Filling pipes from the faucet for kitchen
There are two tubes, each serving to supply cold and warm water. They are made of soft and flexible material. They have a diameter of 10 mm. You can twist them to the necessary position with your hands. Then you could cut to the desired length with the appropriate tool.
Connect cold and hot water
Now connect the filling lines with the two tubes, which come out of the wall. That’s what you should do with pressfitting. Usually the hot water comes from the left. For the different cases you have different press fittings.
Flexible filling lines
Usually you get with the new tubes flexible filling lines. Often they are also offered in various lengths. Stainless steel envelops the tube, which are otherwise made of synthetic plastic. At the end of the tubes there are connecting press fittings aiming at a hermetic connection.
