How to install a new HIMARK shower faucet?
Visit a bathroom showroom to pick out your new faucet. If you are merely replacing an existing faucet, choose the same style of faucet already in place to make installation easiest. If you know what you need, you can purchase replacement parts before you start the project. If not, then you should wait until you have removed the old parts and take them with you to the hardware store so you can match the new components exactly. Many shower components come pre-packaged as a set so you are sure to have everything you need, including new faucet handles. There are 3 styles of bathtub faucets available:
1) Single-handled bath faucets have a tee connection to both hot and cold water supplies and control water temperature and water flow with just 1 handle.
2) Double-handled bathtub faucets have 1 control for hot water and 1 control for cold water.
3) 3-handled tub faucets work the same as the double handled faucets but have an additional handle for the bathtub. In this application, the third handle controls the strength of the water flow and determines whether the water goes to the tub or the shower.
4) Assemble the other necessary tools and equipment. Aside from the replacement parts or the new faucet, the following tools and materials are needed to complete this project:
• Adjustable pliers
• A large adjustable wrench or pipe wrench
• Teflon tape (often called plumber’s tape)
• A pan or container to catch any water remaining in pipes
• Towels or rags for wiping up small puddles and drips
• A box or container for discarded components
• Safety goggles and gloves
