How to Replace a Shower Mixer Valve?


Replacing a shower mixture valve will need you to first turn off the water to the mixer valve. Next, remove the screws or the metal strapping that holds the mixer valve. After that, calculate the distance between the outlets on the valve and then sand the ends of all pieces of pipe. Next, push the couplings in the three cut ends of the pipes and then uncoil solder from its pool. After that, you will then heat the shower coupling by moving its flame. Finally, turn the water supply back on after everything has cooled down.
