How to choose a copper faucet correctly

The faucet can be said to be a utensil we use every day, so it is very important to buy a high-quality faucet. At present, the faucets on the market can be divided into all-copper faucets, stainless steel faucets, plastic faucets, etc. Among them, all-copper faucets are environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and have good wear resistance, so they are favored by people. So today we will talk about how to choose a high-quality copper faucet.

Observe the surface technology. The surface of high-quality all-copper faucets will have exquisite craftsmanship, and they usually have to be polished and electroplated, so the surface looks bright and shiny. You can check the quality of the surface electroplating process under sufficient light when purchasing. , If it looks shiny like a mirror, it means that the surface treatment is good. If the surface does not look shiny, or has corrosion, oxidation spots, etc., it is recommended not to buy it, because the electroplating process is not guaranteed.

Observe the section interface. Many copper faucets on the market are often copper-plated on the surface, and the internal material is not copper, so you must pay more attention when purchasing and carefully observe whether the cross-section interface of the faucet is made of copper.

Feel more with your hands. In order to ensure that the faucet you choose is made of all copper, it is recommended to touch the surface of the faucet with your hands as much as possible during the purchase process, and after the copper material is electroplated, the product will feel heavy and the surface resistance will be large. If the surface is smooth to the touch, it means it is not made of copper.

Check the accessories. When purchasing an all-copper faucet, you also need to check the accessories. Good accessories are usually made of copper. For accessories of other materials, although the surface has been electroplated, the color will become lighter and yellow during use, which will affect the use. It also affects aesthetics.

The above are some of the key points for purchasing all-copper faucets. Please remember carefully. High-quality all-copper faucets generally have a relatively high price. The cheap all-copper faucets are generally copper-plated, and they are prone to various problems after long use, so it is not recommended to buy them.
