Shower Knowledge (3)
Posted on November 10 2022
Welcome to YOROOW Sanitary Ware class again. In the last issue, we shared the type of shower and the way of water. Next, we will learn about the sprinkler head and constant temperature shower together.
About the sprinkler head
The outlet hole of the shower is very important. When choosing, you can let the shower tilt out and test the water. If the water output from the top spray hole is obviously small, it means that the internal design of the shower is general, and the experience when using it is not so good.
▲The water outlet hole on the shower plate is recommended to be made of silica gel. After a period of use, there is scale due to the water quality, and the hole is blocked. Rub it with your hand, and the dirt will be automatically squeezed and washed away by water, which is simple and easy to operate, and does not affect the use effect at all. Some brands of water outlets are made of relatively inferior materials, which are very hard, and this kind of shower will not last for a long time.
▲In addition, some "shower heads" have cleaning needles inside. When the water outlet mode is switched, the cleaning needles will automatically pop up to take away the dirt. This is an automatic cleaning method.
About Thermostatic Shower
The thermostatic shower that everyone cares most about. The original intention of this product is to solve the obvious fluctuation of water temperature caused by unstable water pressure in the tap water pipe and simultaneous water use in multiple places, so as to improve the comfort of the shower. Maintain the water temperature. In short, according to the specified temperature, the mixing ratio of hot water is automatically adjusted to adjust the specified water temperature.
A single thermostatic mixing valve (with separate outlets for cold and hot water) is better than a thermostatic mixing valve. If there are elderly and children at home, it is recommended to buy a thermostatic shower. I am more interested in the anti-scalding function of the thermostatic shower. With the current technological innovation of bathroom appliances, there is a constant temperature gas water heater. If the gas water heater you bought at home already has a constant temperature function, then there is no need to spend money on the shower. And I have emphasized in previous articles that thermostatic showers eat water, and hard water can have devastating damage to its core components.
Regarding the constant temperature shower, it is not something you can install if you want. For example, when using solar water heaters or gas water heaters less than 12L at home, you cannot use a thermostatic shower. The reason is that the temperature sensing element of the valve core is extremely sensitive to temperature and is not resistant to high temperature. Solar water heaters and gas-fired hot water with too small capacity will cause damage to the temperature-adjusting alloy due to instantaneous heating.
