How To Choose The Weight Of Stainless Steel Faucets

  • Today, Xiaobian will share the purchase notes for stainless steel faucets:

    1, material
    Nowadays, there are many faucets on the market, all of which are made of pvc. These faucets are generally simple in process and cannot be guaranteed in quality. They are not suitable for long-term use at home. The faucets are also made of ceramic and stainless steel. The last one is all copper. The popular material choices on the market today are all copper faucets and stainless steel faucets.
    2, spool
    The valve core is an important part to determine the experience of the faucet. Nowadays, the better faucets on the market generally use ceramic valve cores. These valve cores have the advantages of heat resistance and wear resistance, and can be suitable for all water environments in the home, and ceramics. The material's spool has a long service life, which avoids the faucet dripping due to the wear of the spool.

    3, Environmental protection
    At present, the lead leaching of the faucet on the Internet has been raging, and many international brands of copper faucets have been detected to exceed the standard. Although the test results are questionable, the introduction and implementation of the relevant environmental standards for faucets are urgently needed. In contrast, copper and stainless steel faucets are used. Copper faucet is the mainstream product. European and American high-end brands basically use copper as raw material. The advantage is that the production technology is mature, beautiful, high grade, and copper has bactericidal and bacteriostatic effects. The disadvantage is lead. The stainless steel faucet is corrosion resistant and rust-free, but the production cost is high and the production process is immature. Due to its high hardness, the valve core is easily worn, and it is also easy to contain chromium and other materials.

    4, water flow
    A good faucet generally has a bubbler. The function of the bubbler is to make the water flow soft and comfortable, the water splash does not splash, and the water can be effectively saved. Therefore, when purchasing, try to choose a faucet with a bubbler.

    5, weight
    Although the weight is not equal to the mass, in most cases, the heavier the weight of the faucet, the better the quality. When selecting a faucet, you should pick up the faucet to feel its weight. If it is too light, it means that the product is cost-saving and cut corners in the production process.

    6, the surface
    The faucets on the market are basically processed by surface treatment. The copper is generally polished and plated. The stainless steel is generally polished and brushed. When selecting, pay attention to whether there are burrs, pores, corrosion, oxidized spots, etc. For electroplating, you should also feel the thickness of the plating, the effect of plating, the plating, and the surface as a mirror.
