Answer: you have to know if the whole part needs to be changed or just the head.

Replacing a thermostatic valve is not easy if you don't know how to do it in plumbing. Above all, you need to know where the problem may come from. You have to see if only the tap head needs to be changed or if, on the contrary, you have to change the whole part. If there is only the head to change, you must remove it by the nut located behind the head or by the hexagon or by screw. Whereas if it is the body, you must first drain the water by closing the adjusting tee. Open the trap and drop the water pressure. Then open the valve nut. Then put the hemp and the dough on the thread and screw the tap back on. These operations may cause water leaks. Also, it is better to be two to do it. One of you can block the water supply with a cloth to avoid flooding. You can take advantage of this operation to clean the valves. You too, send us your brico question
