Advanced Installation

The following offers advanced instructions for the most common types of angle stop installations that require more than the simple installation detailed above. If you do not have plumbing experience or do not feel comfortable with any of the instructions below, we suggest you contact a professional plumber before attempting any of the advanced installation.

Do I need to install the anchors (toggles) before I screw the plastic mounting bracket to the wall?

Almonte recommends that you do.

Tools needed:

  • Drill
  • Screwdriver
  • Appropriate Drill Bit
  1. Drill two holes with the appropriate drill bit at the base of your angle stop using the pre-drilled holes on the base of the plastic mounting bracket as your guide.
  2. Insert the toggles into the holes you have drilled
  3. Attach the plastic mounting bracket to the wall with the two provided screws
  4. Slide your new Almonte Water Cover over the mounting bracket.

There is an escutcheon plate on the pipe where I'd like to install my new Almonte Water Cover. How do I install it?

Option 1. The easiest way to remove it is to cut it off. You can cut if off with tin snips.

Option 2. If you would like to remove the escutcheon plate without cutting it, you will need to take the angle stop off of the pipe. The instructions are slightly different depending on if you have copper pipe or threaded galvanized pipe.

Tools needed:

  • 2 adjustable wrenches or 2 open ended wrenches that fit the nut that attaches the angle stop to the pipe.
  1. Turn off the house water main
  2. Remove pressure from the pipes by opening any faucet in the house and let it run until no water is coming out.
  3. When the pressure has been released, make sure you return the faucet to the closed position. This will help prevent drainage to the angle stop where you'll be working.
  4. For Copper Pipes: Place one of your two wrenches on the nut behind the angle stop and the other on the angle stop itself. You need two wrenches to prevent the angle stop from spinning with the nut. (for copper pipes)
  5. For Threaded Galvanized Pipes: Use 1 wrench and turn nut counter clockwise
  6. To loosen the nut, turn the wrench clockwise, while holding the wrench on the angle stop in one place. Turn until angle stop is completely removed from the pipe.
  7. Remove the nut and compression fitting from the pipe.
  8. Remove the escutcheon plate.
  9. Reinstall the angle stop assembly.
  10. Install your new Almonte Water Cover.

The pipe is too long/short to install my Almonte Water Cover.

Almonte Water Covers are designed to fit with a standard angle stop installation. Unfortunately some plumbers use different lengths during prior installations. You may need to cut or change the pipe length to properly install your new Almonte Water Cover.

Tools needed:

  • 2 adjustable wrenches or 2 open ended wrenches that fit the nut that attaches the angle stop to the pipe.
  • Pipe cutter
  • Channel Locks
  • Pipe Wrench
  1. Turn off the house water main
  2. Remove pressure from the pipes by opening any faucet in the house and let it run until no water is coming out.
  3. When the pressure has been released, make sure you return the faucet to the closed position. This will help prevent drainage to the angle stop where you'll be working.
  4. For Copper Pipes: Place one of your two wrenches on the nut behind the angle stop and the other on the angle stop itself. You need two wrenches to prevent the angle stop from spinning with the nut. (for copper pipes)
  5. For Threaded Galvanized Pipes: Use 1 wrench and turn nut counter clockwise
  6. To loosen the nut, turn the wrench clockwise, while holding the wrench on the angle stop in one place. Turn until angle stop is completely removed from the pipe.
  7. Remove the nut and compression fitting from the pipe.
  8. For Copper Pipes: You will most likely need to cut the pipe back. Cut the pipe using a pipe cutter to 1".
  9. For Threaded Galvanized Pipes: First remove the old pipe with channel locks or a pipe wrench. Next install the new pipe with 1" protruding out of the wall. (be sure to use pipe dope or Teflon tape before installing new pipe).
  10. Reinstall the angle stop assembly.
  11. Install your new Almonte Water Cover.

The wall in my bathroom is marble, metal or other.

Option 1. Believe it or not, your water cover mounting bracket will attach to the wall with simple double sided sticky tape. We recommend you use an extra strength tape that you can find at most hardware stores.

Option 2. If you would like to secure the mounting bracket to the wall with screws, you will need the following:

Tools needed:

  • Drill
  • Appropriate bit for drilling through the surface you are attaching to, size
  • Screwdriver
  1. Drill two holes with the drill bit at the base of your angle stop using the pre-drilled holes on the base of the plastic mounting bracket as your guide.
  2. Insert the toggles into the holes you have drilled
  3. Attach the plastic mounting bracket to the wall with the two provided screws
  4. Slide your new Almonte Water Cover over the mounting bracket.

My new Almonte Water Cover doesn't fit over my angle stop.

Almonte water covers are meant to cover inexpensive angle stops. There are some higher end angle stops that may be too large to install our product. If this is the case in your bathroom, you will need to install a new angle stop first before installing our product.
