American Standard Bathroom Faucet Parts Assembly
The assembly and disassembly process could be necessary for a proper American standard faucet repair as well as the DIY installation. Before starting you should gather a few tools.
A flat-head screwdriver, a pair of slip jaw pliers, a tubing cutter, and an adjustable wrench are what you’ll need. Make sure the cold and hot water supplies are off.
Now the actual process:
- Apply seal underneath the escutcheon base and start feeding the faucet supplies through the mounting surface hole. You also want to feed the drain cable assembly and mounting stud.
- Use the washer and gasket on the mounting stud to finally secure the faucet with provided mounting nut after confirming the faucet is centered. This way the supplies will rest against the mounting hole.
- Next, you need to install the spout. If it’s a fixed spout, you need to install the fixing set screw using a hex wrench. Make sure the spout is aligning properly. Tighten the screw to secure the spout.
- Then comes the valve fixing. The deck adapter should have the rubber ring and then you need to attach the locknut as well as the rubber washer to the valve body. The valve body will go onto the mounting hole from underneath the mounting surface.
Keep In Mind – The threads must be 5/16 inches extending above the surface top.
- Finally, thread the deck adapter to the body of the valve so that it is nicely snug. You can also use the wrench to adjust and tighten the locknut.
- Next, you have to make a valve outlet supply connection by concerning the red-banded hose to the left and blue banded one to the right valve. Use the provided coupler nuts to attach.
- To fix the handles next you need to attach the adapter to the valve stem using a stem screw. Correct the positioning of the lever handle assembly. Finally, thread the assembly on the deck adapter.
- Install the pop-up drain by tightening the tailpiece on the body and also remove the clear plastic cover as well as the cardboard spacer.
- Use a locknut on the underside of the drain body and push the gasket against it. Install the drain body from the beneath the sink through an outlet for the drain. Install the foam gasket and then flange firmly. The white foam gasket should be hidden, and the pop-up knob needs to be completely down.
- Attach the cable connector to the drain body connection and then move on to checking the operation of the pop-up. You need to open the lift knob simply to check the stopper’s function.
- You need to make water supply and waste connections next. After that’s complete, make sure you test the fittings and check the drain connections. And that’s it!
