Stainless steel shower head and brass shower head which is better.
Stainless steel showers are favored by many consumers because they are lead-free, acid-proof, alkali-resistant, non-corrosive, and do not release harmful substances, which will not pollute your tap water source and are beneficial to human health. Of course, there are also a group of fans in the brass shower. The following small series will introduce you to the stainless steel shower and brass shower.
Stainless steel shower
The surface of the stainless steel faucet does not need to be plated. Its surface only needs to be polished (polished) to show its stainless steel color, and it will always maintain a silvery white luster and never rust. The surface of polished stainless steel products is clean, bright and new for 10, 20 and 30 years. And the stainless steel faucet is easy to clean, and the better cleaning of the stainless steel shower is: any kind of washing water and steel ball, the more polished the new and bright.
Stainless steel showers are made of stainless steel. The stainless steel itself is resistant to air, steam, water and other weak corrosive media and corrosive metals such as acid, alkali and salt. It is also called stainless steel. .
Stainless steel shower is a trendy bathing method. At present, 80% of the high-end faucets in China are made of brass only. The trend of making faucets with stainless steel has only started for a short time.
However, stainless steel is much more difficult and costly than copper because of its hardness, toughness, solution casting and cutting process. Therefore, there are not many manufacturers that can produce stainless steel showers. It is relatively rare, but I believe that with the development of Chinese industry, there will be more and more manufacturers of stainless steel. By then, stainless steel showers will become a guide. The trend of fashion bathroom showers.
In addition, human beings are becoming more and more environmentally conscious, and import requirements for lead content in copper faucets are becoming stricter. The stainless steel faucet is healthy and environmentally friendly and contains no lead. In terms of concept, it is completely in line with the concept of human whitening.
1. Hollow brass chrome plating (mostly round rods, thick square rods are also): hollow brass shower advantages: more styles, moderate price. Disadvantages: fear of wear and tear, better plating will fall off in a humid environment all year round, the plating layer is thin, it will not take long to electroplating will fall off. Easy to deform, the regular manufacturers generally do not have this problem! But some manufacturers use the tube to look thicker, but the tube wall is very thin, the use is broken (it is recommended to press hard when pressing, easy to bend).
2. Full brass solid chrome plating (generally square tube, some to prove that it is solid, specially twisted several flowers at both ends of the rod): All brass shower advantages: fine workmanship, thicker plating layer, durable. Disadvantages: the price is high, the style is not as hollow as the one.
What are the mistakes in the purchase of showers?
First, look at the jet effect
From the outside, the shape of the shower seems to be similar. The spray effect must be seen when selecting. The good shower can ensure that every small spray hole is evenly balanced, and the shower effect can be ensured under different water pressures. Test the water to see if it is evenly sprayed.
Second, see the water way
The interior design of the shower is also different. When choosing a shower, in addition to seeing the spray effect, you need to know that the shower water has a sensation, massage, etc., and the water can be more ideal. The shower is thrilling. The shower can choose the appropriate spray mode according to the mood: natural rainy, energetic massage, comfortable and warm spray, smooth and soft water column, water-saving drip.
Third, look at the surface coating
The surface of the shower is generally chrome-plated. The good coating can be kept at 150 °C for 1 hour. It has no blistering, no wrinkling, no cracking and peeling. The 24-hour acetate spray detection does not corrode. The gloss and smoothness can be seen when selecting. The bright and smooth shower indicates that the coating is uniform and the quality is good.
Fourth, look at the shower valve core
The spool affects the feel and service life of the shower. The good shower uses a ceramic spool that is smooth and frictionless. The hand can be twisted when selected, and the hand feels comfortable and smooth to ensure smooth and reliable performance when the product is in use.
Fifth, look at the shower accessories
Shower accessories will directly affect the comfort of their use, but also pay special attention. For example, whether the water pipe and the lifting rod are flexible, whether the shower hose and the steel wire have the resistance to bending, whether the anti-twisting ball bearing is provided at the shower connection, whether the rotating controller is installed on the lifting rod or the like.
What are the maintenance methods for showers?
Keep away from heat
High temperature and ultraviolet light will greatly accelerate the aging of the shower and shorten the service life of the shower. Therefore, the installation of the shower should be as far away as possible from the electric heat source such as Yuba.
Do not use excessive force when adjusting
Do not use excessive force when switching the shower faucet and adjusting the shower water outlet. Even traditional faucets don’t require much effort.
Metal hoses should remain naturally stretched
The metal hose of the shower head should remain naturally stretched and should not be coiled around the faucet when not in use. At the same time, be careful not to form a dead angle at the joint between the hose and the faucet to avoid breaking or damaging the hose.
