The faucet is indispensable in the home decoration. The faucet in the kitchen and bathroom is especially important. If you don’t pay attention to it, it will easily cause the water to flood the Jinshan Mountain, and let our life suffer from various “flying disasters”. How do we buy faucets in the face of the wide variety of styles in today's market? Our reference standards should be analyzed from the three aspects of faucet appearance, style and material.
First, the appearance
When selecting, it is qualified to be bright, no bubbles, no defects, no scratches. Ordinary faucets have only 10 or more micron coatings, the purpose is to prevent rust, beautiful, and guarantee the service life. Some experts have revealed that when selecting, press the surface of the faucet with your fingers, and the fingerprint will quickly dissipate, indicating that the coating is good; the more the fingerprint is printed, the worse it will be. After the appearance is selected, you should also try the feel of the faucet. The switch is smooth. The upper and lower left and right switches can adjust the water temperature without disorderly. Generally, the temperature is up to 30 degrees, and the left and right reaches 90 degrees. But one thing to note is that the lightness of the faucet does not mean that it feels good.
Second, the style
At present, the faucets on the market are generally divided into two styles, namely, a single-handle faucet and a double-handle faucet. The single-handle faucet uses only one hole, and the double-handle can also be divided into four-inch holes and eight-inch holes, which can be purchased according to the purchase table. The style of the basin depends. The basin faucet and the kitchen faucet are generally mounted on the countertop, so the inlet pipe can be either a hard pipe or a hose, and the length is generally about 35 cm. In order to facilitate the connection, it must be installed at the junction of the domestic water pipe and the faucet inlet pipe. A kind of valve, this kind of valve is called a triangle valve. Don't forget to put it together when buying the faucet, otherwise it will run again, and the triangle valve has different sizes, according to the faucet you bought. Depending on the size of the water pipe, there are generally 3 points and 4 points. Another thing to note is that when installing the triangle valve, do not install it too low, so that the faucet inlet pipe is not long enough to be connected, which may cause unnecessary trouble. It is usually installed at a distance of 50 to 60 cm from the ground.
Then there is the need to buy a faucet, do not forget to take care of the inventory, otherwise it is more trouble to take it back. The accessories of the general basin faucet mainly include the water remover, the lifting rod and the faucet fixing screw, the bolt and the fixed copper piece and the gasket; the bathtub faucet also has the scale fittings such as the shower head, the two water inlet hoses and the bracket. The mixing faucets produced by regular enterprises are equipped with dimensional drawings and imitations when they are shipped from the factory. Pay attention when selecting. Import products should be more careful.
Third, the material
After the style is selected, we must also understand the materials used in the faucet. Most of the built-in spools on the market currently use steel ball valves and ceramic valves. The steel ball valves are made of solid and durable steel balls and strong resistance to pressure. The disadvantage of the new generation of spools is that the rubber ring that acts as a seal is prone to wear and will soon age. The ceramic valve itself has a good sealing function, and the faucet with the ceramic valve core can be more calm and smooth. The faucet is made of stainless steel, and the stainless steel is resistant to acid and alkali, and does not release harmful substances.
