Have you been shot at the common misunderstanding of faucet purchase?
Posted on November 30 2022
The faucet, as a switch for controlling the water flow, is an important bathroom product that saves water. The matter of controlling the water flow can be large or small, but it is undoubtedly indispensable.
When purchasing faucets, more and more people pay attention to quality, but there are often many types of "full copper faucets", "stainless steel faucets", "water-saving faucets" and "sensing faucets" on the market. The so-called water-saving faucets are not water-saving at all. The beautiful-looking faucets are purchased only to find that they cannot be installed, and the whole copper is changed to half copper and half iron.
Common Misunderstandings When Buying a Flat Plate Faucet
Misunderstanding 1: Induction faucet saves water
Many consumers think that the sensor faucet is convenient and saves water, but in fact, the sensor faucet not only produces less water, but also has a high price and high maintenance costs. Induction faucets are generally installed and used in public places, office buildings and government agencies. However, the use of induction faucets at home is not very practical, and maintenance is time-consuming and laborious.
Not only sensor faucets can save water, manual faucets can also save water and energy. Manual faucets not only have a long life, but are also easy to maintain, and are relatively more cost-effective. If you feel that the switch is troublesome, you can choose to install a push-type faucet, which is convenient without turning it, and can achieve the water-saving effect of timing water cut-off. The price is relatively cheap and cost-effective.
Misunderstanding 2: The smaller the flow, the more water-saving
There are water-saving standards for the flow rate of faucets, and too large or too small flow rate is not conducive to water conservation. Many people have this misunderstanding, thinking that faucets with low flow can save water more. The water consumption is equal to the flow rate multiplied by the water use time. If the flow rate is too small, the water use time will be significantly prolonged, and the water saving effect will not be achieved. Sometimes the flow rate of the faucet is too small, there may be a problem with the valve of the faucet, or the slag is clogged, and it should be cleaned or replaced in time. Therefore, don’t think that less flow is better.
It is recommended to pay attention to the cleaning of the faucet, clean and replace the faucet valve and filter screen in time, so as to keep the water clean and hygienic, and protect people's health. Water is the source of life, so when it comes to water sanitation, we cannot be negligent. The sanitation of the faucet is the foundation. The clean and bright appearance does not mean the cleanliness of the interior.
Misunderstanding 3: The bubbler faucet saves water in any situation
The water outlet of the faucet has two parts consisting of an outer layer of filter net and an inner bubbler. The function of the bubbler is mainly to increase the number of air bubbles in the water and reduce the amount of water output, so that the water does not splash and controls the flow, so it can reach a certain level. water-saving effect. But not in all cases, faucets with bubblers save water, which weakens the impact of water flow and reduces the ability of washing and decontamination. Therefore, when cleaning very dirty things, you must use a lot of water to clean them, which is not conducive to water saving.
When choosing a faucet with a bubbler, you need to pay attention to the location of the installation. For washbasins and kitchen sinks, you can consider installing a faucet with a bubbler. The mop pool installed on the balcony does not need to use a faucet with a bubbler, which can not only increase the speed of washing the mop, but also increase the flushing capacity, which has a certain water-saving effect.
Misunderstanding 4: Faucets have hot and cold temperature adjustment
Faucets are divided according to their uses, and can be divided into basin faucets, kitchen basin faucets, bathtub faucets, washing machine faucets and mop sink faucets. Many consumers think that as long as it is a faucet, it will have a hot and cold temperature adjustment function.
The hot and cold temperature adjustment function of the faucet can only be realized with two hot and cold water inlet hoses and a ceramic valve core. Basin faucets, kitchen basin faucets, and bathtub faucets are available in heating and cooling or single cooling, while washing machine faucets and mop sink faucets only have single cooling mode.
Misunderstanding 5: You don’t need to consider the basin when choosing a faucet
The above-counter basin is a kind of basin, which is favored by more and more people because of its neat appearance and variety of shapes. After installing the above-counter basin, many consumers did not notice that the basin has become taller, and still choose the ordinary basin faucet; there is also a situation where the basin has only one installation hole, but consumers buy a faucet with two handles and two controls, and the result is also Can't fit it.
The faucet needs to be installed on the basin, and the actual situation of the basin must be considered when purchasing. If it is an under-counter basin or a column, just choose an ordinary basin faucet. If it is an above-counter basin, you must choose an above-counter basin faucet (the height of the outlet hole is higher than the edge of the basin); There must be three mounting holes.
