How to choose sanitary ware
In the past few years, the location of the bathroom in the decoration is very inconspicuous, but nowadays, the bathroom has been increasingly valued by fashion chasers, and they have been working hard.
Environmental protection, health, fashion, and practicality, people have higher and higher requirements for bathroom. In this season of decoration, what should be paid attention to when purchasing and installing bathroom supplies?
The five major flaws in the purchase of sanitary ware
1. The lower floor of the toilet is suitable for “rushing down”
The purchase of toilet ware should pay attention to the flushing method and water consumption. The flushing method of the toilet is usually divided into three types: straight flush, siphon and flush.
For the lower floor residents, it is best to use the flush type, because the low floor pipe is relatively short, and the flushing type is large, so the lower floor is more suitable for flushing.
The siphon type adopts the principle of pipeline vacuum and is more suitable for high-rise. If the family has two bathrooms, it is best to install a siphon in the “main guard”, because many people work under pressure, siphon-style mute, more suitable for “main guard”, “guest” is best installed flushing, rushing The drop pipe is thick, and it relies on the pressure of the water tank to press the water. It is more suitable to be placed in the “guest guard”.
In terms of the water consumption of toilets, the state stipulates that the flushing capacity of 6 liters or less is a water-saving toilet. Now many manufacturers have already set up large and small water (3 liters and 6 liters). Any water-saving toilets will have signs. Consult the sales staff when purchasing.
Installation Tips: Do not fill the inside with the cement sand at the bottom of the toilet. If the bucket is hidden under the floor tiles, there must be a 2 mm gap around the bucket. The gap should be filled with glass glue, otherwise it will happen. The cement expands and shrinks and damages the product.
2. The bathtub is best to choose the bathtub before the floor tiles
Bathtubs generally include two categories: “skirt bathtub” and “Skirt-less bathtub”. The “skirt bathtub” on the market has become the absolute mainstream.
Generally speaking, the ordinary steel plate bathtub is easy to clean and has a simple shape; the acrylic bathtub is rich in shape, but the life is shorter, and it is not easy to clean after aging; the cast iron bathtub has a long service life and high grade, but the price is high, and the handling and installation are troublesome.
The accessories of the bathtub are the same as those of the toilet and the basin. Different bathtubs require different types of accessories, and their functions and meanings cannot be ignored.
Installation Tips: The anchor bolts must be leveled before the bathtub is installed. During the installation process, iron objects should not be placed in the bathtub to avoid rust spots or scratches on the product. A special reminder to install a bathtub at home is that it is best to pick a bathtub before laying bricks.
3. Determine the reserved size before purchasing the basin
With the hardcover decoration of the bathroom, the matching basin bathroom products have appeared in many people’s homes.
To purchase such products, you should first select the specifications and styles of the basin according to the actual situation of the bathroom area. If the area is small, you should generally choose the column basin, because the use of the column basin in a small area of the bathroom can enhance the ventilation of the bathroom; If the area is large, you can choose each basin, because the basin can enhance the sense of grade.
In addition to the shape of the basin, the most important thing is to pay attention to the quality of the glaze. Because of the good glaze, it is not dirty, the surface is easy to clean, and the long-term use is still bright and new. When selecting, the light can be viewed from the side of the ceramic from multiple angles. The good glaze should be free of stains, pinholes, blisters and bubbles, and the surface is very smooth.
Installation Tips: When installing this type of product, you need to pay attention to the flatness of the wall and the floor. Especially when installing the hanging pot, the nut must be first added with rubber pad. Pay attention to the strength when tightening, so as to avoid damage caused by excessive force.
4. Although the faucet is a “small part”, it must choose a brand.
When purchasing the faucet, pay attention to the quality of the faucet spool, the quality of the faucet manufacturing material and the surface treatment, as well as its adaptability to water quality and whether it is water-saving.
High-quality faucets are made of ceramic valve cores, precision wear-resistant, long service life, iron valve core and plastic valve core have a relatively short service life. Most of the high-grade faucets are made of brass.
The surface of the faucet looks like a small part. Many consumers think that the brand faucet is more expensive, but the hose and angle valve of the faucet are very important. If the quality of the angle valve is not good, the water pressure cannot be fixed. It is not good if there is a burst, it may leak water. If the water leaks at home, the loss will be very large.
The faucet is more chrome-plated, but if the surface treatment is not enough, it may be in good condition when the product is purchased. However, after a period of use, the coating will change color and fall off. Therefore, when purchasing the faucet, the manufacturer must provide the surface. Quality assurance of the coating.
Installation Tips: After installation, you must perform flushing and water test to adjust the water level and flushing function to the best condition.
5.The shower should be carefully selected and installed
The shower is also an indispensable part of the bathroom. Don’t look at the small shower, you need to know some things to pay attention to when installing. First of all, the installation height can be divided into two types according to the type of shower.
First, the shower is concealed, the center of the wall is buried at least 2 meters from the ground, and the center of the shower switch is preferably 1 meter from the ground. The surface mounted lifting rod shower is generally defined by the shower surface, and the distance is preferably 2 meters.
However, professional installers also reminded that these data are only average data. When actually installing the shower, it should be adjusted according to the user’s height.
Second, the wall-mounted shower switch is buried in the left and right cold, and the center spacing should be 1.5 meters. After the shower is installed, it should be at right angles to the wall. In addition, shower water pressure adjustment is also a key. If the water pressure is too high, the shower will burst, and the water pressure will not be used properly.
Installation Tips: Choosing a uniform and gentle shower is the key to enjoying the fun of the bathroom. There are three tricks for choosing a shower: whether the tube and the surface of the shower are smooth and smooth; the second-hand grip body is judged by the material. Advantages and disadvantages; three questions about the service life of the shower switch spool.
