The working principle of the foot faucet:

When you step on the foot switch of the auxiliary valve with your foot, the auxiliary valve opens, the hydraulic pipe is connected, the water inlet passes through the pressure relief groove, and a passage is formed between the hydraulic pipe and the water outlet, and there is no water pressure on the upper side of the main valve piston. Under the action of the water pressure from below, the piston moves upwards, the valve flap is released from the water hole, and the main valve is opened.

When the foot releases the foot switch of the auxiliary valve, the hydraulic pipe is blocked, and the water pressure on both sides of the main valve piston is restored to balance. Under the action of the spring, the valve disc is pressed against the water hole again to make the main valve closure.
