Water-saving principle of water-saving faucets
- Flow limitation and water saving, that is, flow limitation to reduce unnecessary loss of water in the process of water use (it is stipulated that under the water pressure of 0.1MPa and the pipe diameter of 15mm, the maximum flow rate shall not exceed 9 liters/minute).
- Shorten the opening and closing time of the faucet, and reduce the waste of water in the process of switching.
- Ceramic seal reduces dripping.
How much water can a water-saving faucet save?
Water-saving faucets generally refer to surface-spraying faucets, which save 80% of water than previous faucets.
Key points for choosing water-saving faucets
- Water saving
Ask when choosing a water-saving faucet. If the water flow rate is kept at about 6 liters/minute, the purpose of water saving can be achieved. In addition, some faucets have a flow-limiting spool and a honeycomb-shaped flow-limiting sheet. If it is not tight enough, the water will flow out in a foamy shape, limiting the flow rate, and making the user feel that the water flow is softer and the water power is abundant.
Whether the water-saving faucet is durable or not, the surface treatment process is very important. A good water-saving faucet has withstood the acid high temperature test and is intact for more than 4 hours. In addition, due to the reasonable internal structure, the water-saving faucet is not prone to dripping and damage, and can withstand hundreds of thousands of times. It can still be manipulated freely.
There is a pull-out kitchen faucet on the market, which has two ways of columnar water outlet and jet water outlet. The switch can be easily realized by pressing the button on the top of the shower, which is clean and convenient. There is also a 1.5-meter-long stainless steel hose that can be pulled out. Gets where you need it and makes cleaning fun.
- Easy to clean
There is a lot of oily fume in the kitchen, and the surface of the faucet is easy to lose luster after repeated cleaning, and the coating may change color and fall off. Therefore, when purchasing a water-saving faucet, you must know its shelf life. It is generally understood that it should not be less than 3 years.
- Environmental protection
Lead levels in water are primarily caused by bodies of water scouring waterways. After the realization of direct drinking water for households in the United States, very strict "lead content requirements" were put forward for water quality, water pipes, and faucets. The water pipes of water-saving faucets should be made of refined copper or stainless steel, and the main body of the water inlet pipe faucet should be welded at a low temperature with special welding materials and no pollutants.
A good water-saving faucet design takes into account the needs of various cleaning methods, such as a 1.1-meter-long vegetable shower, which can be pulled out and sprayed to wash vegetables and other objects, and can clean corners that cannot be reached by general cleaning tools. A good water-saving faucet must be matched with the sink to reflect its advantages. The traditional sink drain will be blocked due to the accumulation of residues, while the convenient super-large ladder cage drain increases the storage space for garbage and is not easy to poison; the traditional central drain hole Position design, it is often the case that objects cover the drain and water accumulation, the rear position design of the sink drain can prevent water accumulation.
