Nowadays, the faucet manufacturers in the shopping malls have a wide variety of products and varieties, which make people who choose faucets look dizzying, and it is even more out of place for people who value details. So how can we choose a satisfactory and suitable faucet from the faucet manufacturer?
1. Turn the handle: It feels good to have a light spool
Common faucet valve cores produced and planned by faucet manufacturers 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 wear and will quickly age. Compared with the steel ball valve core, the ceramic valve core is more heat-resistant and wear-resistant. At the same time, the ceramic valve itself has a good sealing function, so it can achieve a high resistance to opening times and will not cause the nozzle to drip due to the wear of the valve core. The faucet using the ceramic valve core of the faucet manufacturer is more comfortable and smooth in the hand, and it opens and closes quickly.
2. To test the book: the quality is more guaranteed
The body of the faucet is generally brass. The electroplating quality of products made of brass is guaranteed. The higher the purity of the brass, the better the electroplating quality, and the electroplated layer on the surface is less likely to be corroded. In order to reduce costs, some faucet manufacturers choose zinc alloy to replace brass. Although the country has promised to use zinc alloy to replace brass, the quality of zinc alloy plating is poor and corrosion resistance is not strong.
Customers can use the method of weight estimation to distinguish when purchasing. Brass is heavier and harder, and zinc alloy is lighter and softer. However, relevant experts of faucet manufacturers believe that the quality of faucets should not be judged by weight alone. "Because some faucet manufacturers increase the wall thickness of the faucet or add other metal materials, the faucet can also be heavier." The customer should ask the salesperson of the faucet manufacturer for the product test report. If the test report confirms that the product is qualified, then "the problem is not big".
3. Test the water flow: the foam is rich and soft, indicating that the bubbler is better
Customers should choose a more durable whole casting faucet. The sound of the faucet that is all cast is more dull when hitting. Customers can judge whether the faucet is all cast by hitting the faucet when purchasing.
When purchasing, you should choose a faucet with a bubbler as much as possible, and feel the water flow with your hand. The water flow is soft and foaming (water flow bubble content) is rich, indicating that the bubbler is of better quality. The bubbler generally has six layers and is usually composed of a metal mesh cover (part of which is plastic). When the water flows through the mesh cover, it will be cut into many tiny water columns with air in the middle, so that the water will not splash around.
4. Brand recognition: after-sales service is more secure when choosing a brand
Customers should go to regular shopping malls and supermarkets to buy faucets from branded faucet manufacturers. The brand products of the faucet manufacturers have the brand logos of the faucet manufacturers. Informal products or inferior products are often only pasted with some paper labels, or even without any marks. The faucet packaging box should also contain the faucet manufacturer’s brand logo, quality assurance certificate and after-sales service card.
