You will need
- - tap the gander;

- - FUM-tape;
- - rags.
Ganders of taps differ from each other by such properties as shape, style and length. These parameters depend on the destination of the mixer, but mostly ganders are divided into two groups - full cast and turning. The first kind is a single whole, by the housing of the mixer and subjected to dismantling. Swivel option bolted to the mixer in the event of a failure can be detached and replaced with a new one.
For future work we need a new gander the desired shape and size, ring diameter of ¾ inch, FUM-tape and rags. You need to prepare a pipe wrench, and his absence will come in handy pliers. You should turn off the water to protect themselves and the room from the unexpected.
Husak attached to the mixer using the nuts. She bolted to the piece of pipe threaded on the end, which is called tapping. When replacing an old gander at the new you must first Unscrew this mount. This applies to a wrench. It is necessary to prepare soft cloth. Winding the nut with a rag will prevent chrome decorative coating from scratches and damage.
After the nut is unscrewed, you need to carefully remove the old pipe and remove the worn gasket out of the hole in which it was installed. In its place fit a new gasket. In this case, you need to follow to avoid any bias and she was held tightly to the pipe. At the end of the new gander, is equipped with a thread, wrapped around a bit of a fluoroplastic tape and carefully inserted into the housing of the mixer. Do not make the layer thick - this will hinder the tightening of the nut and the tight connection of the parts. Clamping nut locks the position of the gander. Should be very careful when-tightening - the use of excessive force may cause it to burst.
When loosening the clamping nut can cause problems. During the long months of usage could be formed limestone, which will serve as a serious obstacle when disconnecting the gander. In this case, tapping on the nut to try to destroy the formed deposits. Even if a decorative coating is damaged, you can buy a new mount. If this method did not lead to the desired result, you will have to buy special chemicals for the destruction of limescale. They can be used to solve the problem without damaging the integrity of the chrome.
