Posted on October 25 2022
- Look: the gloss of electroplating
The surface gloss is very uniform, without any burrs and pores, without blisters, cracks and oxidation spots. After touching it with hands, it basically leaves no traces, and the gloss is relatively bright.
2 touch: corner seam
The first-class faucet has 5-7 layers of coating, and the edges and corners are rounded without burrs, sharp edges and corners. In addition, the seam joints between the main components are also very tight, and there is no loose feeling.
3 Listen: the sound of beating
A good faucet should be made of cast brass as a whole, and the sound of brass when struck is dull and low. If the sound is relatively clear, it is generally made of stainless steel or alloy materials.
4 weights: the weight of the faucet
The shell of the main components of a good faucet is generally made of copper. Copper has strong plasticity, is easy to form and electroplating, and has good quality. The specific gravity of copper is large, and it looks heavy and textured in the hand, while the zinc alloy material has a lower density and feels lighter. Therefore, the weight of a faucet of the same size can be compared.
5 Discrimination: The material of the faucet
It is best to choose copper material, followed by stainless steel, do not choose zinc alloy, because zinc alloy is not corrosion-resistant, easy to precipitate heavy metals, endangering human health. We can observe the color of the inner surface of the faucet to judge its material. The color of the inner cavity of the zinc alloy faucet is dark yellow with white spots, and the color of the inner cavity of the copper faucet is yellow.
6 test: the degree of foaming of the water flow
You can feel the water flow when you touch it with your fingers, and the water flow is soft and foaming, indicating that the quality of the faucet aerator is good.
7 turns: check the flexibility of the spool
The quality of the valve core is the key to the bathroom faucet. The high-quality valve core of the faucet has precise technology. When the handle swings to drive the valve core, you can feel it is not loose or tight, light and non-blocking.
8 Certification: Brand and Product Certification
Consumers should identify well-known brands when purchasing faucets, so that they can get better after-sales protection. In addition, you should also ask the salesperson for the test report of the product to determine whether the product is qualified.
