Hygiene shower in antique style from WanFan

Hello.
He was addicted to a hygienic shower and bought several at once, to deliver everywhere.
I never really needed such a thing. But something covered me after this review redlightgreen.org/blog/aliexpress/38376.html But I did not order a separate watering can, but ordered a full set of "gadgets."
But I see more how I give them my pair of buckets of plums in the bathroom.
Another application I will come up with locally.
Well, to look at it was also very interesting. True mats I put a lot during disassembly.
Shipping and Packaging




In order to better understand the dimensions, I took some photos with a “finger-type” battery and a 18650 battery.
Watering can itself.

Diameter 25 mm. And what surprised me the most was its weight of 338 grams.

I thought it was old, like the faucet, but here it is varnished.
Looking ahead, I’ll say right away that everything is varnished, except for the hose and its components.
Why such difficulties, I do not know, it would be more pleasant for me to hold pure metal in my hands.
Button and nozzle.


If in some watering cans I saw simple aerators(If desired, it is easy to change at least to a rotary one) and even two mode ones. Then there is nothing to change, the maximum you should try to use the aerator at 24mm (landing 23.5mm in a watering can). But there’s nothing much to break.

The nut itself is metal, but the nozzle is plastic, but thick, as much as 7mm.
In this photo, I recommend taking a closer look at the arrows.

Red indicates the seam from the mold. The shape was of two halves and the seams are on the opposite side. If desired, the seams can be rotated in any direction.
Black indicates a tricky part, without which the watering can does not block the water.
At first I was delighted and thought here a conical stopper of water, without any gum. As in this photo

I pull it out and look inside. And inside you can see the rubber seal and spring. The miracle did not happen, but there is nothing terrible either.

Then I started disassembling to find out what and how, suddenly something had to be repaired.
On the "ass" there is a hole for 6 facets.

I start to twist and something strange happens. Then I realized the design is very interesting. I am not a constructor and I can’t say how it would be easier to make a watering can, but judge for yourself its design.



Inside there is a pipe through which water flows and that's itit is on anaerobic glue. Well, the glue in the sealed case did not dry completely, and I could make out. Otherwise, they would have been left without a photo. It gets out on the other side, from which it is weaker.
During assembly, the fum tape that came with the kitchen faucet came in handy for me.
Well, in order to achieve more tightness, sealing gum is used.

The button is parsed simply. From the nozzle side, push the stopper inward and a pin will appear to us. It is pushed very easily, but in the assembled position it will never fall out.

Without water, an application force of 900-1000 grams is required to press a button (he did not believe it when he checked it). With water, it all depends on the pressure of the water.
There is nothing under the button and on the button side.

Only gum is visible. Then I pulled out all the excess.

The elastic is simple in itself and under the pressure of water, it “bursts” due to which it fits tightly around the stopper rod.
Although I was expecting something simpler. Straightly surprise sometimes the Chinese.
The stopper itself has a stainless steel return spring and a washer that protects the rubber from the spring.

And here is what was previously removed to do so that the gum on the stopper does not bite once again, there is a cone.

If you wind up the hose, then everything is very good.

Conclusions on the watering can:
Everything is good, everything is beautiful and pleasant, some tracespolishing and so on - do not rush into the eyes. But they are. She is also all in minor injuries, as if they were specially thrown into a bath with pebbles - it seems to me that this is such an idea, to give old times.
I did not like only the weight. If you drop it into the toilet or bath, you can get chips ceramic / enamel. But the metal (in the store we have 1100 plastic).
It seems that aging was in style - we held overbonfire, then rubbed with a cloth and varnished so that soot would not come off. But these are just my assumptions, because there is the same completely brilliant like gold.
If once the gum spreads / tears, and the water stops overlapping, I think changing it will not be difficult.
Added photos of “moments”, which, if desired, can be found fault.
Additional Information


As for the hose. He is in the most ordinary and differs only in appearance.
I was always enraged that an ordinary shower room was used that does not like working under pressure. And those who like pressure did not suit me with flexibility and design.
But I saw on Ali a kit with such a hose.

Of course I did not expect to see the same, but still dreamed.
The whole is patterned / embossed and has a length of 1.5 meters (you can still win a couple of cm if you pull it.
There are stubs for beauty. I wonder what these hieroglyphs mean?


Under the rubber bands

What I do not know JQW and the search did not tell me either.
I pull out further.

I tighten the sleeve and unscrew the white insert.

If desired, you can easily change the braid and keep the beautiful nuts. But if you do not try to break the braid, then it should serve forever. You can shorten if necessary.
Inside is a rubber soft hose. It fits very tightly on the fitting. It doesn’t work under pressure (and this happens, and the fittings are often put plastic).
Nuts are kind of brass.

But the hose, although it can stand under pressure. As soon as you release the lever on the watering can, the hose immediately becomes stiff, as if inside an aluminum wire and this is not very good.
It will be necessary after each closing of the tap to relieve pressure in the watering can and hose. Well, for the hose to serve for a very long time and always be malleable.
Or buy a hose designed for pressure or try to stick another hose inside, as in the first photo.
For the sake of interest, I went to the nearest store building and looked at all the “hygienic souls”. As a result, prices from 1500 for IDIS with a plastic watering can and a simple hose.
Although for the money (apparently used to cheap Ali), I expected at least a watering can not made of plastic.
There is also a decorative plug, so if you chopped a tile - it's okay.
Thickness 5.5 mm, diameter 50 mm.

Well, for dessert, the tap / holder that caused me problems.
I understand that many people have a filter, and those who will install this product have 99% of them.
That the ceramic axle box breaks once every 100years (if it’s not mechanical damage) but I had to make sure how it works and whether there is a possibility of repair (yes, I’m joking if it weren’t for p18, I wouldn’t break it down so much, still I had a discount and I was sure that that I can restore performance).
The picture is mirror. Everything is still varnished.

The thread for connecting water has a length of 22 mm. All the threads here are 15 mm or 1/2, as you like to call.
Given the thickness of tiles + mortar - everything should be perfect.
From the side of the hose, you can see the landing under 6 facets.

The landing gear for the 21.5mm hose and the hose does not fully enter into it. And I would like to the end.

And a couple of threads remain on the hose (in real life it comes exactly to the damage on the thread that I left). Even removing the elastic, everything is exactly a small gap. But this is if you find fault.
From the side of the water supply, it can be seen from the inside, it turns out to be a hexagon, you can adjust the pressure of the crane axle box in the housing.
It’s also not very clear why this is. Could immediately cast the body with a ledge. But I think the manufacturer knows better what is easier.
If you have not noticed, then on the handle you can not see the plug under which the fastening screw would be hidden.
I tried to “tear” the handle off the crane - it didn’t work out, even clamped it in a vice.
I tried to unscrew it - crumbled ceramics using a gas wrench No. 2.
I tried to squeeze using the bottom and 6 faceted key - jammed crane box.
After 15 minutes of attempts (could be useda very crude technique, but I had to keep the appearance functional) I even wrote to the seller the angry question “how to disassemble it”. And when I understood it, he wrote an angry answer about the fact that he was doing it in vain.
As a result, I had to finally crush the ceramics into pieces and shake it from there.
Then I tried to screw the rod with a screwdriver and crank the handle (after all, I believed that a Chinese man could solder a screw in the handle and tighten it well, because I couldn’t tear it off).
Then a drill went into action. I was afraid that I could drill too much and after not pulling the leftovers out of the handle, and the drill turned out to be dull. In the end, I broke it. But I noticed a backlash. Then he decided to break off the protrusions with a screwdriver and knock out the stem of the crane box.
And the idea worked.
In the photo pieces of ceramics.

Remains of the axlebox

Landing from side 6 of a face and an elastic band for consolidation (a simple ring which was compressed)

Handle and stock.

It turned out that the cunning seller put the handle on the red anaerobic glue, if it wasn’t okay.
In order to somehow tear out the stock, I had to take a turbo lighter and warm the stock so that the glue became softer.
I was afraid that the varnish on the handle might go bad,but at temperatures safe for hands - nothing came of it. Then I wrapped the handle with a rag and warmed up the stock specifically (spoiled varnish is better than nothing)
Warming up well, the stock still pulled out, and the coating was not damaged.

Well, since I destroyed my own crane box, I went to the store to buy a new one.
For only 129 rubles, they sold me “what was” from LEMEDE. But the stock itself was slightly different (on the right side). But I had nothing to lose, and no matter how I was, I "pulled".


He twisted it and ... the handle stood up like a glove with a little effort. Everything is just perfect, at least repair every day.
As for the connection, I already know what and how. But depending on finances (it would not be bad to build an extension and take out the entire dignity there) I will determine the installation.
But the key point will be here such a plan thermostat.
There are versions for sewing, so that only the handle sticks out of the wall.
But since the shower has its own faucet, the controller adjusts itself once and is forgotten.
Therefore, I took just such a version.

If the main eyeliner is an open installation, then the pipe that goes to the shower - I will sew into the wall.
So that everything would look like a Chinese (like in the cover of the review) and please the eye.
As a small summary, I can say the following:
I liked it even externally.
The hose can be shortened, if desired.
It is convenient that there is a crane with a holder and all in one style.
To the controversial disadvantages, I would include the weight of the watering can, it is better not to drop it once again (but it's nice to hold it in your hand).
And the hose, it can be used, but I would like for high pressure.
But if you estimate the offline prices of my city, then the purchase is very profitable.

Now, I'm waiting for a second, simpler set, less expensive and stainless.
Let's see what kind of hose there is.
