  • to the heating system;
  • to the hot water system.

usually choose the second way, because to support optimal humidity and the room temperature heating must occur year-round.It is better not to connect the heating because hot in this case will be exclusively for the duration of the heating season.Moreover, it may be a problem with the replacement device in the winter - is unlikely to give permission ZhEKe on the sidebar to the heating line (there is a risk of freezing the whole riser).

Note!If you plan to replace the old Soviet-made towel rack, you should choose the model of the same diameter, which provides low connection.But if the pipeline is sunk into the walls, and outside there are only outputs, it is suitable to the appliance side connecting type.

In addition, when connected to the flush-mounted towel warmer pipes need to pay special attention to isolation of the compounds, ie. In. To eliminate leakage in this case will be very difficult.

view of the fact that in most cases carried out the installation of the side of the device, we will be guided on him.

In most cases we are talking about replacing, so first dismantle the old appliance.To do this, perform the following steps.

Step 1. Cover the hot water supply pipe, which is connected to the heated towel rail.To this end, we can contact the housing office or to the person in charge (for example, the chairman of the cooperative), because hot water can not be disabled without permission.Cover the appropriate valve.

Step 2. When the water has drained out of the riser, remove the old device.If not connected to a tube towel warmer, we simply untwist the screw connections and, if it is welded to it, then cut the "grinder".Cut so that the remaining length enough for threading.

Step 3. Removing the old appliance with brackets.

When it comes to replacing your old towel warmer, you can skip this step, because the need to focus on the longer wiring is present.But for the device to be installed for the first time, we zamerivaem its spacing liner pipe.

Making layout

Make markup

first performs markup (as shown in the image below), then shtrobiruem wall through "grinders" or wall chaser.After that set the two ball valves, processed connection with a special paste or wrapping flax.Next to an American county or pulls the thread, is screwed onto the ball valve.After that you can start soldering (in more detail the procedure has been discussed in the article about the installation of polypropylene pipes).

Note!In this case, the dimensions are very important, therefore leaving 1.5 cm on each side.

The instrument is connected to the backbone.Now go back to the heated towel rail with side connection.

Step 3. Set the bypass (jumper)

Install bypass

Set bypass

Bypass - is a length of pipe, equipped with special fasteners, a kind of magic wand in the event of unforeseen circumstances.This jumper before the heated towel rail, which is installed on the riser (the wiring diagram with it, see below).

Note!On the bypass valve set three: one to suspend the circulation of water in the device, the other two cut into the point of the device with the pipeline connections.To perform only use liner tube made of stainless steel!

Install bypass will not cover the water around the house during repairs, but only to suspend water supply to the appliance.To remove air from the lines set on another jumper ball valve , so that water will flow freely as in the entire system, and in particular in the coil.

Step 4. Installation and connection of the coil

Connecting the towel dryer

Connecting the towel dryer

Step 1. First, fasten the brackets for fixing the towel dryer on the wall.First, fasten the brackets to the coil (they often are included, but in a pinch they can be purchased separately) and puts it to the place of the future placement.With a pencil mark up the holes.It is desirable to use a builder's level to level the horizontal coil.

Step 2. Do the electric drill holes.If the wall is covered with tiles, then use a special ceramic tile drill bit.

Step 3. In the knockout holes hammered dowels made of plastic, are putting coil to the wall, re-check the levelness and fix the device by means of screws screwdriver.

Note! distance between the facing surface and the axis of the instrument is clearly regulated and depends only on the diameter of the pipeline.The distance should be:

  • 3,5 cm in diameter less than 2.3 cm;
  • 5,5 cm in diameter in 2,3-5 cm.

Step 5. After installation and connection check the tightness of connections - we see that at the seams no drops, no leaks.Then slowly open the taps for the gradual filling of the device (it smoothly, or water hammer can occur).

pipe liner

According to experts, the best option for hot water are PP pipes with aluminum reinforcement layer (also called head-tubes).Such products low rate of thermal expansion, because of what they are as close to the metal.

There is another option - PP pipes with reinforcing fiber.

In connection - open or concealed wiring.Last more relevant.
quality. need to acquire products only well-known manufacturers.It is necessary to pay attention to the threaded tap connection.Each shop sells various accessories and mounting, so it is easy to check the quality.It is enough to ask the seller the necessary fitting and try to screw it into the thread.

Special attention should be given to installing an electric coil.Here the main thing - it is the correct electrical connection, otherwise it may cause a short circuit or even a fire.Here are the basic requirements for connecting the appliance:

  • an earth;
  • connection only through the machine (tripping device).

Note!If this type of appliance is plugged into an outlet installed in the bathroom itself, it (outlet) have to be with a waterproof casing.In other words, the outlet is recessed, and the hole is closed with a special insulating cap.
