Posted on April 27 2023
The faucet is an essential household item in each of our families. And choosing a high-quality faucet during decoration will help a lot in future life. But no matter how expensive the faucet is, after a long time of use, there will be various bacteria and dirt that will affect our domestic water, so regular replacement of the faucet is also a point that we need to pay attention to in our home life. But how often should we replace our household faucets?
Water tap is the popular title of water valve, which is used to control the size switch of water flow and has the effect of saving water. The replacement speed of the faucet is very fast, from the old-fashioned cast iron process to the electroplating knob type, and then to the stainless steel single temperature single control faucet, the stainless steel dual temperature dual control faucet, and the kitchen semi-automatic faucet. Now, more and more consumers are choosing faucets, and they will comprehensively consider materials, functions, shapes and other aspects.
Big-name faucets are changed every five years, and miscellaneous brands are changed every year. For faucets with a good brand reputation, you can replace them every five years. For faucets that are relatively small or even without brand protection, it is recommended to replace them once a year. As for non-drinking faucets such as laundry, you can use them for a long time It doesn't matter at all, the ones that are 6-7 years old have to be replaced. Drinking water and water use can be said to be the lifeblood of our daily life. If you want to protect your water health in daily life, you must pay more attention to the details of the installation and use of faucets, and fundamentally avoid the source of harm.
After the faucet is installed, it is recommended to clean the smudges and fingerprints on the surface every other month. Rinse the surface with clean water and dry it with a soft cloth; while the brightness of the appearance can be cleaned with car wax once a month. Surface cleaning is for aesthetics, and internal cleaning is the most important factor affecting service life. In addition, if the water volume of the faucet is reduced or the water is forked, it means that the bubbler of the faucet is blocked. At this time, the bubbler should be removed, soaked in vinegar, and cleaned with a small brush or other tools. Then reinstall it again.
Precautions for cleaning the faucet:
(1) Do not wipe the surface of the faucet with hard objects such as steel wool, because the steel wool is very hard and it is easy to scratch the surface of the faucet.
(2) It is best to use a neutral detergent for cleaning, and a strong acid-base detergent is not suitable for cleaning with a tap.
(3) After the faucet is cleaned, dry the remaining moisture on the surface with a dry lint-free towel (the same is true for glass cleaning) to avoid scale.
Needless to say, everyone knows the use and function of faucets in the family, so quality is very important. The faucet is directly related to our domestic water and drinking water, so even replacement and cleaning are very important.
