Shower Sets Installation Steps
Step 1: Pipes Connection
Use pipes to connect each water outlet port of the control valve, for shower sets with the tub faucet, usually need to connect the hot water inlet, cold water inlet, bathtub spout, and handheld shower.
The installation dimension is only for reference, you can adjust it according to your bathroom size and showering preference.
Step 2: Leakage Test
Once the pipe connection is completed, remove the protective panel and cover, and open the cartridge. Flush the pipeline, then close the cartridge to assess the pressure resistance and sealing performance. Ensure there are no leaks by blocking each outlet pipe with plugs and opening the cartridge. Verify that the pipe joints are well-sealed and check the condition of the pipes under pressure to guarantee no leakage.
Note: Clean the water pipes before connecting to the supply pipes to prevent blockages.
Testing Purpose: Eliminate impurities and sludge in the pipeline to prevent clogging and maintain proper effluent functions.
Step 3: Verify Drilling Dimensions
Refer to the technical drawing for the required drilling size.
For instance, if the valve size is 5.3" x 6.7", the depth should be 1.8"-2.2". It's advisable to drill to a depth of 1.8" for a blank wall.
Drill the holes on the wall for the main body part, hot and cold water inlet pipes, and shower arm connection pipes based on the provided product dimension drawing. Connect the hot and cold water inlet pipes and the mixed water outlet pipe to the control valve and tighten with a wrench.
Note: Apply the plumber's putty under the plastic cover deck for proper sealing during installation.
Step 4: Wall Sealing
Utilize a parallel ruler to measure the flatness of the valve and the vertical wall surface. If the wall surface isn't flat, patch it to ensure the valve and vertical wall meet at an almost ideal 90-degree angle. Then proceed to lay the tile decoration.
Step 5: Control Valve Installation
- Remove the protective panel and cover.
- Connect the decorative panel and the handle to the control valve.
- Adjust the direction of the water separator handle according to the right angle.

Securely install the showerhead, tub spout, and hand shower. Then test all the functions of the Complete Shower System.
