Stainless Steel Faucets is very important. How do we choose a healthy and good quality faucet? Can be considered from four aspects!

1, the choice of faucet handle

At present, the handle of the faucet is mainly divided into: spiral type, single handle, double handle, with 90 ° switch.

The spiral faucet has the longest history. This type of faucet with handle water has a large water output, is affordable, simple to maintain, and is still popular.

The single-handle faucet is easy to operate and simple in structure, because the water pressure will rise quickly when the single-handle faucet is turned on and off, so choose a single-handle faucet with high copper content.

Double-handle faucets can be suitable for more occasions, such as under-basin basin faucets, bathtub faucets, etc. At the same time, double-handle faucets are more accurate and delicate when adjusting water temperature, suitable for temperature-sensitive people.

With a 90 ° switch, you can rotate the handle by 90 ° when starting and closing. It can be adjusted on both sides of hot and cold water. It is characterized by easy opening and more styles.

 

2,Does the faucet have a bubbler?

All faucets on the market have bubblers, but faucets with bubblers are generally of high quality. It is recommended that you choose a faucet with a bubbler. Because the bubbler has the ability to prevent water from splashing, saving water and filtering water.

How to choose a good bubbler? First of all, the good bubbler uses high-quality stainless steel mesh, which can be seen by the naked eye. You can also turn on the faucet. The water flow is soft and rich in foam (water bubble content), indicating that the quality of the bubbler is better.

 

3, the core component of the faucet: the valve core

The most important factor affecting the quality of a faucet is the spool. There are three common types of spools: ceramic disc spools, stainless steel balls and shaft-roller spools.

The best of these three types of spools is ceramic discs. Because the roller type is a relatively old-style valve core, it can't meet the needs of the populace for the valve core now, and the shaft roller type valve core is now rarely seen among the major brands.

The ceramic valve core is widely used because of its good abrasion resistance, good sealing performance and the improvement of "brittleness".

 

4, the plating process of the faucet

The plating of the faucet directly affects the beauty of a faucet, and also directly determines the quality of the rust and corrosion prevention of the faucet. At present, the international standard for faucet plating thickness is 8 microns, and the best can reach 12 microns. Good quality faucets are usually plated with semi-bright nickel, bright nickel and chromium on the fine copper body. At present, there are also faucets promoting five-layer electroplating in China. The five-layer electroplating includes three layers of copper, such as hydrogen-plated copper, pure copper, and acid copper, and then nickel and chrome.
