How to buy the mop pool faucet correctly

Turn handle: feels light spool
Common faucet spools have steel ball spools and ceramic spools. The steel ball valve core has good resistance to pressure, but the disadvantage is that the rubber sealing ring that acts as a seal is easy to wear and will soon age. Compared with the steel ball valve core, the ceramic valve core is more resistant to heat and wear, and the ceramic valve core itself has a good sealing performance, so that a high degree of opening resistance can be achieved, and the nozzle is not dripped due to the wear of the valve core. The faucet with ceramic valve core is more comfortable and smooth in hand, and it is quick to open and close. Since the spool is inside the faucet, the consumer can’t see the spool when purchasing, but the consumer can simply judge whether the spool is good or bad according to the feel when turning the handle. Generally speaking, turning the handle up, down, left, and right, if it feels light and has no blockage, it means the spool is better.
Look at the appearance: the coating should be bright as a mirror
After the faucet is ground and polished, the surface should be plated with nickel or chrome. The water faucet is oxidized. After the nickel or chromium plating, the faucet pass the Neutral salt spray. After the test, the coating should be free of rust. It is understood that only the faucet passed the neutral salt spray test can be shipped. When purchasing, it is best to place the faucet in a place with sufficient light. The surface of the faucet should be bright as a mirror, without any oxidized spots, burnt marks, no pores, no blistering, no leakage plating, uniform color; The hand touches no burrs and sand grains; after pressing the faucet with a finger, the fingerprint spreads quickly and is not easy to adhere to dirt.
To be tested: quality is more guaranteed
The main body of the faucet is generally brass. The quality of the products made of brass is guaranteed to be the best. The higher the purity of the brass, the better the plating quality, and the harder the surface plating layer is. In order to reduce costs, some manufacturers use zinc alloy instead of brass. Although the country allows the use of zinc alloy materials instead of brass, the zinc alloy plating quality is poor and the corrosion resistance is not strong. In general, consumers can use the method of estimating weight when purchasing. Brass is heavier and harder, and zinc alloy is lighter and softer. Experts caution that the quality of the faucet should not be judged by weight alone, because some manufacturers can make the faucet heavier by increasing the wall thickness of the faucet or adding other metal materials. Consumers should ask the salesperson for a test report for the product. If the test report determines that the product is qualified, it can be purchased.
Test water flow: subject to foaming
Consumers should try to choose a faucet with a aerator when purchasing, and feel the water flow with the hand touch. The water flow is soft and foaming (the bubble content of the water flow) is rich, indicating that the aerator quality is better. The aerator generally consists of six layers, usually consisting of a metal mesh cover (partially plastic). When the water flows through the mesh cover, it is cut into a large number of small water columns with air in between, so that the water is not torn apart.
Recognition of the brand: after-sales service is guaranteed
Finally, consumers should go to the formal market and supermarkets to buy branded taps. Branded goods have the brand identity of the manufacturer. Non-formal products or quality products often only have some paper labels attached, or even no mark. The manufacturer’s brand logo, quality assurance certificate and after-sales service should also be included in the faucet packaging box. Be sure to pay attention to the purchase.
