The faucet is one of the important items in every family, and it affects our lives. If there is no Hot And Cold Faucet for daily drinking, washing, cooking, etc., we will be everywhere. The easy-to-use faucet can even accompany you for 5-10 years. Therefore, for new house decoration, the tap must be carefully selected. Let me tell you how to choose a faucet.

  1. Choose materials

The first thing to pay attention to when choosing a faucet is the material of the product. Because the tap water comes out through the main body of the faucet, its material determines the quality of our daily water.

The mainstream materials on the market are brass and stainless steel. In particular, copper-containing faucets with antibacterial properties are becoming more and more popular in the market.

In addition, the faucet also has plastic, cast iron, and zinc alloy materials, but because plastics are prone to aging, cast iron is prone to rust, and zinc alloys have poor stability, these three types are not recommended.

  1. Select function

In order to meet the various needs of people, the functions of leaders are becoming more and more humane. In the production of faucets, there are ordinary basin faucets, as well as faucets with other functions, such as pull-out faucets (for shampooing and cleaning), 360° rotating faucets (for rinsing and washing your face), and sensor faucets (for convenience Operation) and so on.

  1. Look at the surface.

Faucets are usually placed in humid places, such as bathrooms, kitchens, etc. If the faucet is exposed to the outside for a long time, the surface is easily oxidized. If the faucet is still smooth after long-term use, the surface of the faucet needs to be treated. Therefore, you need to pay attention to the surface treatment of the faucet when buying. Copper faucets are usually electroplated, and stainless steel faucets are usually brushed. When buying, in a well-lit place, pay attention to whether the surface has burrs, pores, impurities, and whether it is smooth. In addition, you can catch your breath on the surface of the faucet. If the water vapor diffuses quickly, it means that the surface treatment is better.

  1. Test the spool.

The spool is called the heart of the faucet, and it determines the quality of the faucet. Qualified spools need to be tested in accordance with the national faucet standard, just like the faucet of Dilang Sanitary Ware that does not drip 500,000 times. Today, most faucet spools are ceramic spools. The ceramic valve core has the advantages of wear resistance, sealing, and heat resistance.

When buying a faucet, you can gently rotate the handle of the faucet. You should feel that there is no gap between the faucet and the handle, whether it can be opened and closed easily.

  1. See the water.

The size of the water flow of the faucet is also very important, and the foaming condition of the water flow is determined by the bubbler. Everyone buys and tests water on site. If the water flow is soft and the bubbles are sufficient, you can clearly see the good quality faucet through the back of the hand.

  1. Look at the packaging

Faucets of good brands usually have good packaging. The package contains the product, product manual, product maintenance card, etc.

Generally, pay attention to the six aspects of material, function, surface treatment, valve core, bubbler, and product packaging.
