Does the faucet run out of water? These details determine whether it works well or not
Posted on October 27 2022
When we are decorating the house, the most important place is the kitchen, because the decoration of the kitchen is a more troublesome thing, and it will involve some small parts such as water pipes, faucets, and cabinets, so we must not be sloppy. , So, the question is, what are the types of cabinet faucets? How to choose a faucet? How to replace the kitchen faucet? This is a question that everyone is more concerned about, and then let Xiaobian give you a brief introduction to this aspect.
How to choose a faucet
- Look at the valve core: common faucet valve cores include steel ball valve cores and ceramic valve cores. The advantage of the steel ball valve core is that the pressure resistance is relatively strong, but its disadvantage is that the rubber ring that acts as a sealing is easy to wear and will age quickly. Compared with the steel ball valve core, the ceramic valve core is more heat-resistant and wear-resistant, and has good sealing performance, so it can achieve a high resistance to opening times, and will not cause dripping due to valve core wear.
If you choose a faucet with a ceramic valve core, it will feel more comfortable, and the opening and closing will be faster. Because the valve cores are all inside the faucet, we can't directly see the valve cores when selecting them. At this time, we can judge by the feel. Turn the handle up and down, left and right, if it feels lighter and does not feel blocked, it means that the valve core is better.
- Look at the material: From the perspective of cost performance, it is recommended to choose a faucet made of pure copper, which has high gloss, strong wear resistance and corrosion resistance, and has a certain bactericidal effect. The higher the purity of brass, the better the quality of electroplating. The better, the less likely the plating on the surface will be corroded. In addition, it is more recommended to choose an integral casting faucet, which is more durable. The sound of the faucet cast as a whole is more dull when tapped. When purchasing, you can judge whether the faucet is cast as a whole by tapping the faucet.
- Look at the coating: the coating is preferably a thicker nickel-chromium coating, which has high brightness and uniform color, and can clearly illuminate the human figure. Identification method: You can breathe on the surface of the faucet when you buy it. The faucet that is faster when the fog is small, the quality of the coating is relatively good.
How to Replace a Kitchen Faucet
1、Remove the kitchen faucet
Use a saw to cut off the faucet above the countertop. The kitchen countertop is not like the bathroom countertop and cannot be removed. Therefore, you can only cut off the faucet above the countertop first, so that the faucet can be separated from the countertop.
Use a saw to separate the water inlet pipe and the hose. Since there is no problem that the water inlet hole and the hose cannot be separated during the installation of the bathroom faucet, at the same time, I think that if it is directly sawed off, the sawed water inlet hole will be connected to a new hose. It's a bit difficult.
2、Install the kitchen faucet
Equipped with a water inlet pipe interface, after the water inlet pipe joint is sawed off, take the cut off part to the hardware store, and then ask the store owner to match it with a matching interface. Then apply adhesive and attach the connector to the water inlet.
Assemble and fix the faucet. After the glue between the water inlet pipe interface and the water inlet pipe has solidified, the faucet can be installed. Assemble the kitchen faucet in sequence, fix the faucet to the countertop, and then fix the hose to the water inlet. At this point, the kitchen faucet installation is complete.
What are the types of cabinet faucets
Single lever mixer tap
Hot and cold water is discharged, operated with a handle for water stop, which can adjust the amount and temperature of hot water on the left and right sides of the operation type. It is widely used in the kitchen because it can be operated with one hand and is easy to use. There are many prices and variations, and most monolithic kitchens also use the single-lever faucet as a standard.
Double handle (faucet) mixer tap
The water volume and temperature can be adjusted by two handles for hot and cold water supply. It can also be seen in imported goods such as individual designs.
Mixing faucet with hand shower
The faucet that can be pulled out from the front and can be hand-held shower is a type that is widely used today. The water flow of the hand shower can reach any corner during cleaning, which is convenient to use.
Water purification special faucet
In addition to hot and cold water faucets, some families will also be equipped with water purifier faucets
In addition to the usual faucet functions, there are also special faucets for water purifiers. Install a filter element (water purification filter) under the counter, a type of faucet with a built-in water purification filter element, etc. In addition, there is a mixer tap unit with integrated water purification.
