For installation you need:

MAINTENANCE of the mixer tap. The maintenance of all Blue Star mixer taps can be carried out without dismantling them.
- Regular external cleaning with a soft cloth and liquid cleaning agents;
- At least once a year clean the spray nozzle of the water pipe (remove the aerator, clean it and screw it back on).
Attention! Impurities in the water may cause the faucet cartridge to malfunction, characterised by dripping when the mixer tap is in a closed position. This does not constitute a warranty repair. A solution here is to replace the faucet cartridge with a new one.
