successfully installing bathroom basin taps

Posted by aihw on March 25th, 2020

If you are working on a bathroom remodel project that includes installing or renovating your bathroom vanity, then you may need to install a new bathroom washbasin faucet.

It\'s not a difficult or complicated thing, but you need some hints and pointers.

First of all, what is the difference between the faucet and the faucet?

Simply put, the faucet is a water control valve with a separate faucet.

The tap usually has a cold and hot water controller with a single tap, and both cold and hot water flow into it.

If your bathroom vanity has a cold hot water basin faucet, you will also have two taps.

Taps are usually used instead of taps because they are smaller, more compact, and are more suitable for bathroom vanity because of the limited space available on the countertop.

You certainly need to remove the old one before installing the new basin faucet.

Make sure the hot and cold water lines on your bathroom vanity are closed.

Then turn on the tap and drain the water line.

You may need a screwdriver and a wrench to remove your old faucet.

When you remove the old faucet, be careful not to scratch or crack the porcelain basin around the mounting hole.

Once your old faucet is removed, clean the mounting holes at the top and bottom of the basin.

There may be a flyer for your new basin faucet with instructions and guidelines from some manufacturers ---

Read these carefully and make sure you follow their instructions to write this letter.

During installation, if your faucet manufacturer indicates that you should use washers or other special hardware or preparation, make sure to use the exact item they recommend.

You need to make sure your new faucet doesn\'t leak ---

You will need to check under the dresser to make sure your waterline is not leaking at the tap connection and you will also need to check the top to make sure there is no leakage around the sink or basement.

Similarly, when installing a new basin faucet, make sure not to crack or cut the porcelain sink near the hole in the basin faucet installation.

Do not use a wrench to tighten the tap on the top as you can scratch the metal finish.

Follow the manufacturer\'s instructions and hands

Tighten with a wrench as needed, then adjust from below.

Turn on your new basin taps when everything is ready and let them run for a minute or so.

Check again if there is a leak on and below the countertop.

If you do not feel any moisture around the thread or bracket and you do not see any drops below on your dresser, then your installation has been successful.

Congrats!
