How to choose a faucet? Otherwise, drink "poisonous water" every day!
Posted on October 22 2022
The faucet can be said to be one of the most frequently used kitchen and bathroom equipment in every family. Whether the quality is qualified and the design is reasonable will have a long-term impact on the health and quality of life of a family. There was a survey that tested the overnight water of 10 households, and it was found that the metal pollutants in the water samples of 3 households - lead precipitation exceeded the standard! Is it wrong to choose a faucet, which is equivalent to drinking poisonous water every day? Which faucets are toxic (excess lead precipitation)? What's the point of choosing a faucet?
Long-term drinking of tap water with heavy metals exceeding the standard is harmful to health
Under normal circumstances, tap water is weakly acidic, and if it stays in the faucet for a long time, it is easy to cause the metal pollutants in the faucet to be precipitated and dissolved into the water to cause water pollution. Studies have shown that long-term use or drinking of tap water with excessive metal content, especially heavy metals, may cause harm to human health. From the perspective of lead, if lead exceeds the limit of the national standard, it is easy to cause damage to the brain and nervous system. Long-term drinking of lead-containing tap water, the longer the accumulation time, the greater the harm to the human body. Therefore, the testing standard for faucet materials stipulates that the parts of the product in contact with water should not use corrosive materials such as zinc alloy, should not cause harm to human health, and should not cause any changes in water quality, appearance, taste, smell, etc.
How to choose a healthy, safe and practical faucet?
When choosing a faucet, you must first choose the right material. At present, the most common faucet materials on the market are copper alloy and stainless steel.
Copper Alloy Faucet
Features: no rust, durable, anti-oxidant and water-sterilizing.
Disadvantage: lead! When purchasing, it is best to choose a regular brand to ensure that the lead content does not exceed the health standard of 5ug/L.
Stainless Steel Faucet
Features: high hardness, strong toughness, no rust, no lead, the faucet itself will not cause secondary pollution to the water source. Disadvantages: It is difficult to manufacture and process, so the price is more expensive than faucets of other materials.
Suggestion: From the perspective of safety and health, the first choice for purchasing faucets is stainless steel faucets of regular brands. You can ask the merchant for the product certification issued by the national quality inspection department.
It is important to use the faucet in the morning
When using the faucet every morning, it is best not to use the "overnight water" that stays in it. Turn on the faucet and let it sit for a while, and use this water to flush the toilet, mop the floor, etc.
The connecting hose of the faucet is also prone to exceed the standard
Professional testing personnel reminded that the connecting hose of the faucet is also very important, and you must pay attention when purchasing. The material of the faucet hose is different, some are very strong, some are easy to tear, and the easy to tear may be made of secondary materials, which are prone to exceed the standard of organic matter. When buying, pick it up and smell it. If the smell is too heavy, it may not be of good quality, so it is best not to buy it.
