The advantage in favor only the cost of kits and individual parts.

metal alloys. A more robust embodiment, the coating is performed in several embodiments: silver or chromium under gold plating mimics. It lasts longer plastic models, but not for much longer.

Brass, steel. The most reliable metal bathroom. It should be remembered that the damage of the anode film on steel parts may cause rust and brass eventually oxidizes in a humid environment.

Holder for the shower

All mixers are equipped with private bathrooms and shower holder. Its appearance depends on the manufacturer, the device is attached to a side wall or the bath. In addition, the mixer has a special stand for fixing watering cans. But it is not always standard solutions satisfy the users they wish to have at the design superior and original designs, so buy more modern holders.

Functionality holders shower

We will look at what are the types of holders for the soul, describe step by step instructions for attaching them to different types of walls in the shower or bathroom.

Types of holders of manufacturing material

The materials used for the manufacture of holders:

  • plastics. Modern plastics have indices increased physical strength due to the innovative additives. They have for a long time do not lose their plasticity and strength, on their surfaces slows down the development of microorganisms that facilitates the grooming process. Plastic holders are manufactured in a variety of design solutions, have almost no restrictions on the shape, form and color. The invention relates to the budget category, are available to the absolute majority of users. The disadvantages include many low indicators of strength, but it is very conditional deficiency. If the holder deliberately did not make an effort to break in, the use of the term may be many years. All plastic surfaces to improve design characteristics may be chrome-plated;

Materials manufacture holders and their characteristics

Brass (copper and zinc)

Bronze (copper-tin, lead, manganese and silicon)

Silumin (aluminum silicon)

to the holders of the range of prices depending on the manufacture of high material, each user must make their own decision on the choice according to their own possibilities.

Types of holders in place and method of fixation

The holders can be installed on the walls of buildings or ledges baths.

  1. Wall holders. There are stationary and mobile. At the height of the stationary watering arrangement is not regulated, it is very inconvenient if one shower are adults and children. Movable allow individually adjust the height of the watering arrangement. Watering is mounted on a metal bracket which is attached to the vertical upright. The stud length is 60 cm, installation height is limited by the size of the flexible hose. It may further be located site for detergents and sponges.
  2. Holders on the bath rim. Require lengthy installation, in some situations, you need to make a special hole in the bath. Apply only to fix the watering cans in the idle state, this is their main drawback.

Installation choices for shower heads

The holders can be fixed with dowels or suckers. The first option is reliable and safety of use. The problem - you need to drill holes, which can be considerable difficulties, which describe below.

Easy to install, like the adults and children

The second type of fixation (on suckers) differs mobility and ease of fixation. Each user can adjust the height as desired.

  1. Origin - tiles must be perfectly flat and smooth, otherwise watering can at the wrong time to fall.
  2. Second - eventually sucker manufacturing material loses ductility, microcracks appear at the edges, the air permeable. The holder can not hold a watering can shower, have to buy a new one.
  3. Third - you can mount only one ceramic tile. At the seams to fix the device is not possible, and that severely limits fixing places watering is necessary to establish not where you want, and where you can.

Most modern shower holders allow you to adjust the watering can in the same plane at the height of the jet. Some controlled, except this parameter, a tilt angle of the left to the right.

Older models do not have such opportunities, they keep watering can in one position. There are holders with the connection of the shower hose, in some there is a hook that allows you to hang accessories.

Consider options with suction cup will not, everything is clear here. The surface must be flat, smooth and clean.

Let's talk about how to bolt in the wall and mount to the side a bath. Baseline: the wall is covered with tiles of cement screed, plasterboard, paneling or sheathed with plastic colored oil paints.

For builders it is the easiest option. We need to work with a drill and hammer drill pobeditovye soldering. The diameter of the drill must meet diameter dowel.

Tools for work

Step 1. Decide on the location for installation height. If the holder does not have the vertical adjustment capabilities, its location must meet the adult users. The height should be sufficient for washing the hair, the hands must not touch the funnel. Children will have to keep a watering can in his hand.

Step 2. Mark the drill holes locations.

Do it better felt-tip pen, pencil marks on the surface of ceramic tiles invisible. Try to accurately mark the drilling locations, the fact that they are placed at a short distance, to drill in case of an error next to each hole will not be possible, the drill will continue to slide in available.

Step 3. Start the drill holes.

How to drill

Practical advice. What if the holes are drilled in the wrong place? There are two options to solve the problem.

  1. First. With a slight mismatch slightly increase its diameter drill or a new swinging in different directions old. Replace the plug and matches or toothpicks, slide it to the right side of the axis. Hammer matches as closely as possible, do not leave gaps.
  2. Second. We'll have to close up the wrong hole cement-sand mortar and drill new. To drill again, misses the old hole, repel a piece of tile on the new. Work very carefully, do not allow large cracks.

Step 4. Recheck matching holes and the carrier element. It's all right - fix it in place. Attach the decorative part of the holder itself. Check its stability by slightly pressing. The design should not wobble.

Now you can move on to more complicated options.

Ceramic tile on drywall

Tiles on plasterboard wall. There will be fixed holder

We have not once said that the gypsum board has only two advantages: low cost and ease of installation. These advantages are offset by the main drawback - low physical strength. Many construction companies during the finishing of the walls of bathrooms use gypsum board - there is no need to align the walls of the cement-sand mixture, all the work can be finished in one day. And then on the surface of the tile placed. Fast, cheap (but not for the customer) and nice (but not for long). Here we are faced with the problem of how to drill a hole in a wall.

Ceramic tiles - solid material. For drilling holes need to make great efforts, the drill must operate in punch mode. As can be guessed, gypsum boards can not withstand such forces and the more vibrations. Material flex tile falls off. What to do?

The best option - to provide fixation of the place holder before the finish of the walls. At this point, to make holes in the drywall, mounted on a wall under a section of drywall boards. Only then putting ceramic tiles. Now she will have a focus that will make it possible to drill holes safely.

EXAMPLE installation laying beam to trim the GCR

If the wall is already trimmed? Work much more complicated.

Step 1. Make a layout position shower holder, find holes for the fixing points, indicate their marker.

Step 2. Prepare tools. They must be in perfect condition, pay attention to the drills. Factory sharpening is not enough, correct it yourself. Cutting edges have to be very sharp.

Step 3. It is necessary to remove the top layer glaze. This is the most difficult stage. Hardness quality reaches glaze glass hardness. Drill glides over the surface without damaging it. If the tiles are laid on a solid foundation, the drill goes into punch mode, the drill sharp blows breaks glaze and drilling possible. We do not have that option when you can work puncher. Remove the glaze should be a special drill with a diamond coating. This hole is drilled with a slight pressure sensitive.

Diamond coated drill 3-20 mm

The second option - to use a spear drill. This method is somewhat dangerous, requires practical skills to use.

The drill on the tile

Important. Do not let the tiles crackle after a strong clamping drill. Such sounds indicate by what tiles start to fall off from the glue.

Drill length must be at least 10 cm.

Bosch. drill sets of ceramic tiles CYL-9 Ceramic

It should be done on the supply of plasterboard thickness, the distance between it and the wall thickness of the tiles. Dowels, which are in the completion of each holder, will not do, they are too short.

Another point. Gentle drill can drill a hole for the length of dowels, but never completely cleanse it from construction dust. As a result - the plug will not sit down the entire length, it is necessary to take out and deepen the hole.

Do not press the drill much

Step 4. After drilling all the holes, check the strength of attachment to the base tile. If it wobbles - it should be removed by gently knock off the old glue and put the tiles on the new one.

The process of removing the tiles from the wall

Further overwritten slit. I have to work long and very carefully. But even after such conditions there is no guarantee that the repairs will go unnoticed. Especially difficult is to make identical grouting. So much for the "advantages" of drywall.

Problems with drilling holes in the plastic are solved, fortunately, much easier. For ordinary drill and an appropriate drill bit. Set the drill at maximum speed, drill press gently to the surface of the plastic. Frictionally temperature rises, melted plastic. The hole formed pobeditovoe drill inserted, drill mode is switched to the punch, a hole is drilled in a conventional manner. Again, you need to take a long dowels.

Plastic panels in the bathroom and fixed brackets for the soul

There are cases where in order to save money for covering the walls of the bathroom to use very thin plastic. Under the weight of the holder, watering cans and hose it flexes. Just say that such a finish - the worst option of all. But in this case, there is a solution.

Step 1. Put the decorative cover to the carrier panel, circle thin pencil outline.

Step 2. Carpentry knife carefully cut out the hole. The dimensions of the holes should be 3-4 mm less than the loop. Cut would be long, it all depends on the strength of the panels.

Video - How to drill the plastic panel

Step 3. Prepare the lining of the crop of the board size to cut holes. The thickness of the pad should be equal to the distance from the wall to the front surface of the panel. GENERAL Build lining with maximum precision.

Step 4. Secure it to the wall plugs.

Important. Pay attention to the location of the holes for fixing the carrier part of the holder and the mounting pads to the wall, they should not be the same. If this can not be achieved because of the small size, at the same dowels have to fix and lining, and support member.

It's not as difficult as it seems. Main accurately measure the position of the holes and drill them into the wall and lining. To facilitate the process may first secure the pad to the center of the wall. At this point, the holder is not fixed, it is always available. When the lining is fixed, it is much easier the simultaneous drilling of holes in it and the wall. To make it during operation did not move, insert the first drill hole plug, it will not allow to rotate.

Step 5. Seal the gap remaining between the plastic panel and the holder. Use the bactericidal putty or silicone.

This material was used to seal the gap between the bath and the wall. Before applying silicone thoroughly clean and be sure to degrease the surface. Otherwise, there will be rapid detachment, the water will fall under the finish of the walls.

There are cases where the holes in the bearing support member is so small that it is impossible to find a long dowel with the same diameters. What to do?

  1. If space allows, it can be just a little bit to ream the element under the new diameter dowels.
  2. If the place is small and enlarged diameter bore beyond the contour of the carrier element - is not a problem during driving dowels place them under appropriate quantities of cap washers.

Important. Caution during fixation by dowels to the tile holders or flimsy plastic panels surface. Do not tighten with excessive force, the main thing - to eliminate the gap between the elements.

If the wall in the bathroom is painted in oils, there are no problems with drilling a non-existent.

Fastening holder to the bath rim

Ideal - bath already has a special technological holes for the holder. If not - will have to be drilled. The bath may be made of metal and plastic. With the second there are no problems, the hole is drilled ordinary drill. The only condition - do not overheat it, do not let the plastic melting. Reduce the drill rpm, from time to time with water cool the friction surface.

With metal bath difficulties more. As they drill holes?

Step 1. Decide on a place of installation of the holder on the bathroom. Prepare the drill bits for glass and ceramics and drill.

Step 2. drilling place must be constantly cooled. Think about how you can do it, there are several options. From the most simple - to adapt the common drip water supply under the cutting edge to the more exotic - made from clay bead and pour water into it. So that it does not leak the field of education of small holes, attach the bottom of the cup from clay.

Step 3. hole diameter increases in stages. At first, use a small diameter drill bit, gradually increase it to 2-3 mm.

The initial phase of drilling

Step 4. Clean metal shavings and dust, remove the cylindrical disc machine or manually burrs from the bottom of the bath.

Step 5. Replace the holder, make sure that the flexible hose for watering was not too sharp bends.

Installation of a mixer and a holder on the bath board

This installation is time-consuming, and a little effect. Deck Mounted bath watering can only be in the idle state, while taking a shower it will have to hold in your hand.

On-board mixing in the bathroom

  1. Do not rush to fix the holder immediately. Examine the manufacturer's instructions, several times assemble / disassemble it on the table, find the trouble spots.
  2. To less dust gets into the bath or on the floor, call assistant. Let it keeps the hose from the vacuum cleaner directly below the drill drill, all the dust is cleaned.
  3. If you have a vertical holder, it is better to fix it in turns. First mark and fix the upper supporting member. Then use a plumb line and use it to determine the precise vertical position of the bottom. None factory plumb - do it yourself. By segment thread tie a small weight on the most accurate vertical plumb line is ready to use. Only labels do not have to spout, and on the position of the thread.
  4. Hole suture anchor has got into masonry, the plug reeling and can not withstand the weight of the mixer. There is nothing wrong. Score around the plastic parts of the maximum number of matches, the lower ends sharpened. Such a method would provide sufficient reliability of fastening.
  5. Center of the hole in the wall and on the fixing element does not match a bit. If the difference is not more than three millimeters, it is not necessary to redo anything. Insert into the holes and fasteners all plugs simultaneously. In order to get to the hole, pick up the items on the maximum height of the wall (dowel length is limited), and plug-Nails cram one. The main thing that they were in his place. Next, gradually turns hammering hardware, in most cases they align and enter the hole. Hats, of course, remain under a bias, but it is the quality of the attachment is not affected.
  6. Never stick to the surface of the tile adhesive tape to prevent chipping. Firstly, it does not warn their education and hold only small pieces in one place. Secondly, the vain hope of tape reduces attentiveness and accuracy of work production and tiles necessarily split.
  7. Not to accidentally break a tile while driving anchors, use wooden spacer.

That's it, take advice and you will not have problems with the installation of the holders of various kinds and on all surfaces.
