How to adjust the shower tray

Now let's move on to how to adjust the shower tray through simple and easy steps that anyone can do without the help of a professional.

1- Choosing a place to install the shower tray

Before starting the installation of the dish holder, the appropriate place for the dish must be chosen on the surface , but it must be taken into account that the location allows the correct orientation of the dish to the satellite, as there must be no obstacles in front of the dish that prevent it from communicating with the satellite, such as the presence of a wall or other covered shower dish For the place, or for example there is a water tank in front of the shower, in these cases you must choose another place that does not have any obstacles.

2- Install the plate holder

Now the dish holder can be installed , as it can be installed on any wall somewhat high, as this can be done manually. First, using a pencil, mark the marks of the dish holder on the wall, and then put it aside after that, and through the use of the electric drill, four holes must be created with a depth half cm.

Now the steel screws must be placed in their designated place inside the holes, then by using the hammer and chisel the plate holder is fixed to the wall but it must be ensured that it is sturdy and not shaken by air or anything.

Practical example

If you are in Madrid, for example, and you want to get the Astra satellite signal , by using a thin Dishpointer site, it has a polarization of 38 degrees, an elevation of 25 degrees, and a deviation of 147 degrees.

First, the compass must be placed on top of a piece of paper, and then rotated so that the compass signs point towards the north. We start with the letter of the dish to reach the correct position according to the numbers engraved on the holder behind the dish to match the numbers we obtained from the same site.
