Basic tools: a divorce key, an anilet wrench of 14, a seal (FUM or PACLA tape), it is convenient to have adequate ticks. Before making any manipulations with the water supply, we must block the common cranes or valves on the maintenance of the pipeline. Assess visually the state of the pipeline and mixer nuts. It is important not to damage pipes that may not be strong enough or poorly fixed relative to the wall. Using the divorce key, weaken the nuts of the mixer, if necessary, hold the fittings to which the mixer is attached. If it is not possible to unscrew the “boiled” nut, try to wrap it with a small rag of abundantly moistened in acetic or citric acid, “dentry” or “cilit” – it can help dissolve the scale. After 5 – 10 minutes, rinse the compound from the chemical.
Turn out the eccentric, if necessary, resorting to the above techniques. When replacing wall mixers, the situation is not uncommon, when the eccentric breaks and the thread remains inside the pipeline. In such cases, using the canvas of the hacksaw for metal on the inside of the stuck threads, longitudinal tiles are made to the thread of the fitting. Take the canvas so that its teeth are scored towards you and moderately pressing it to the bottom of the fragment, move it on it, as if scratching the groove. If necessary, grooves can be made both two and three. When it reaches a depth of 1-2 mm. Put off a small chisel or screwdriver into the edge of the fragmentation and light beats of the hammer break out fragments. Remove chips from fitting thread.
Now you can install a new mixer. To do this, on the thread of new eccentrics from the side of the installation to the pipeline should be moderately pulling the tape of the FUM clockwise, in such an amount that the surface of the metric (triangular) threads looked under it like waves. Depending on the thickness of the fumka, the number of turns can vary from about 5 to 10 . (picture). Or use the dad, wound it on the thread in such quantities so that the relief of the thread completely disappears under the layer of pacley. It is important to note that the excess layer of the seal can cause leak.
Plunge the eccentric into the pipeline, but you should not wind them all the way. Put the mixer and rotating the eccentric clockwise achieve the coincidence of the mixer’s nuts with threads of both eccentrics. In order to avoid a skew of the eccentric mixer, you should be symmetrically to each other.
Using rubber gaskets (without other seals), fasten the mixer, pulling the nuts alternately each in order to avoid distortion, and at the end without making excessive efforts, tighten. When working with keys with the mixer, a piece of fabric should be laid between the key and nuts to avoid damage to the decorative surface. Attach the remaining parts to the body of the mixer according to the instructions. When installing the mixer installed on the sink, first of all, the mixer itself should be fixed in the opening of the sink and only then gently plunge flexible hoses into it. After that, avoiding twisting, screw the hoses to water.
