What are the mistakes in the use of faucets?
Posted on November 25 2022
Faucets are kitchen and bathroom products that we use every day in our lives, and are closely related to our lives. It is precisely because it is used every day that we should master the skills when purchasing and installing faucets, so as to make our lives more worry-free. Today, YOROOW Sanitary Ware will take stock of the misconceptions about the use of faucets for us.
Misunderstanding 1: Install the same type of faucet in different functional areas
There are various types of faucets. According to different functional areas, faucets mainly include basin faucets, bathtub faucets, washing machine faucets and sink faucets. The structure and function of faucets in different functional areas are also different. The faucet generally uses two types of heating and cooling type and bubbler. The faucet of the washing machine only needs to be a single-cooling type, because the water flow of the single-cooling type faucet is faster, which can play a certain role in saving water.
Misunderstanding 2: The hot and cold water pipes of the faucet are not separated
Under normal circumstances, the hot and cold faucets control the mixing ratio of hot and cold water through the different opening angles at both ends of the ceramic valve core; The same effect can also be achieved by installing an upper angle valve.
Misunderstanding 3: The connection between the faucet and the water pipe does not use an angle valve
All hot and cold faucets in the home must use angle valves when they are connected to the water pipes. The purpose is to prevent water leakage from the faucet from affecting the water use in other parts of the home; however, the faucet of the washing machine does not require hot water, so it can be directly connected to the water pipes.
Misunderstanding 4: The faucet is not cleaned regularly
Many families have never paid attention to the cleaning and maintenance of the faucet after installing it. After a long time, the faucet will not only make the water quality unguaranteed, but also cause various failures, which will affect the use. In fact, the correct way is to clean the faucet every other month after installing the faucet; just wipe the stains and water stains on the surface with a clean rag; Pour white vinegar into it and soak for a while, then open the hot water valve to drain the water.
Misunderstanding 5: The faucet is not replaced regularly
Generally speaking, the faucet can be considered for replacement after five years of use, because long-term use will cause a lot of bacteria and dirt to accumulate inside the faucet, which will cause harm to the human body.
