Abstract:Common sense of hardware accessories: 14 points to note when choosing a faucet
Weight: You can't buy a faucet that is too light. Too light is mainly because the manufacturer hollowed out the copper inside in order to reduce costs. The faucet looks large, not heavy to hold, and it is easier to withstand the water pressure burst.
Handle: The compound faucet is easy to use, because when using the sink, usually only one hand is empty.
Water outlet: The water outlet placed on a high place makes it easy to fill the basin.
Spool: This is the heart of the faucet. Both hot and cold water faucets use ceramic spools. The best quality spools are the Spanish circuit, Taiwan's Kangqin, and Zhuhai.
Rotation angle: The ability to rotate 180 degrees makes work easier, while the ability to rotate 360 degrees only makes sense for a sink placed in the center of the house.
The shower head can be elongated: the effective radius is enlarged, and the sink and the container can be filled more quickly.
Hose: Experience has shown that a tube of 50 cm long is sufficient, and tubes of 70 cm or more are also available on the market. Be careful not to buy aluminum wire pipes. Use stainless steel wire. Hold your hand and pull it tightly. When the hand turns black, it is aluminum wire. If there is no change, it is stainless steel wire. It is best to use stainless steel braided with 5 international standard wires on the outside. The hose, the inner tube of the hose is made of EPDM, the connecting nut is red punched and forged, and the outer surface is covered with a 4miu (thickness) nickel layer.
Shower pipe: In order not to make an unpleasant sound, avoid using metal pipes as much as possible.
Anti-calcification system: Calcium deposits in the shower head and the automatic cleaning system. The same situation also occurs on the faucet, where silicon will accumulate. The integrated air cleaner has an anti-calcification system, which can also prevent the equipment from being calcified inside.
Anti-backflow system: This system prevents dirty water from being sucked into the clean water pipe and is composed of layers of materials. Equipment equipped with an anti-backflow system will display the DVGW pass mark on the surface of the package.
Cleaning: The streamlined design does not require too much cleaning. Do not use coarse-grained detergents such as decontamination powder, polishing powder, or nylon brush to clean. Use an appropriate amount of diluted shampoo or bath liquid to soak the cloth. After rinsing with water, wipe the faucet with a dry soft cloth.
Material: Stainless steel is hygienic and environmentally friendly. The chromium soldering equipment is easy to care for and harmless to people, but some other elements need to be added in the manufacturing process. Therefore, we must pay attention to what materials the equipment is made of. Not all countries have such high standards as Germany.
Durability: The anti-calcification system can protect the equipment from the danger of water leakage and handle damage.
Repair: In terms of repair costs, various equipment are very different, and the materials for some equipment are not easily available. The repair is actually quite simple, just need the corresponding accessories, of course, there must be a structure diagram, otherwise I don’t know how to put it back after the disassembly.
