Nowadays, there are more and more types of faucets on the market, and different materials and models will bring different experience. So how to choose the right faucet? Next, YOROOW Sanitary Ware will answer for you.
- Turn the handle: feel the light valve core is good
Common faucet valve cores include steel ball valve cores and ceramic valve cores. The steel ball valve core has good pressure resistance, but the disadvantage is that the sealing rubber ring is easy to lose and will age quickly. Compared with the steel ball valve core, the ceramic valve core is more heat-resistant and wear-resistant, and the ceramic valve itself has good sealing performance, which can achieve high resistance to opening times, and will not cause nozzle leakage due to valve core wear. The faucet with the ceramic valve core is also more comfortable, smooth, easy to open, and quick to close. Since the valve core is inside the faucet, consumers cannot see the valve core when purchasing, but consumers can simply judge the quality of the valve core when turning the handle. Generally speaking, consumers turn the handle up and down, left and right, if it feels light, no blocking sense means that the valve core is better.
- Test book: the quality is more guaranteed
The body of the faucet is usually brass. The plating quality of brass products is the best guarantee. The higher the purity of brass, the better the quality of electroplating, and the less likely the electroplating layer on the surface is to corrode. To keep costs down, some manufacturers choose zinc alloys instead of brass. Although the country allows the use of zinc alloy to replace brass, the quality of zinc alloy plating is poor and its corrosion resistance is not strong.
Consumers can use the weight evaluation method to identify when purchasing, brass is heavier and harder, and zinc alloy is lighter and softer. However, some experts believe that the quality of the faucet is not only judged by weight, "because some manufacturers can weigh the faucet by increasing the wall thickness of the faucet or adding other metal materials." Consumers are best to ask the salesperson for the test report of the product. If the test report finds that the product is qualified, then "the problem is not big".
- Water flow: the foam is rich and soft, indicating that the bubbler is better
Consumers should opt for a more durable integral cast faucet. The sound of the whole casting faucet is more dull, and consumers can judge whether the faucet is a whole casting by tapping the faucet. When purchasing, try to choose a faucet with foam, feel the water flow by hand, the water flow is soft, the foam (bubble content) is rich, and the foam quality is good. The foam is generally six layers and usually consists of a metal mesh (partly plastic). When the water flows through the mesh, it will be cut into a large number of small water columns with air in between so that the water does not splash around.
- Brand recognition: brand after-sales service is more secure
German sanitary ware reminds consumers that they should go to regular markets and supermarkets to buy brand faucets. Brand products have the brand logo of the manufacturer, and non-standard products or quality products often only have some paper labels or even no logos. The faucet packaging box should also have the manufacturer's brand logo, quality assurance letter and after-sales service card.
