Teach you to install hot and cold faucets
Faucets are indispensable in home furnishings. Faucets in kitchens and bathrooms are particularly important. Failure to pay attention can easily cause floods and make our lives suffer from all kinds of “flying disasters.” Faced with the various styles on the market today, how should we buy a faucet? Our reference standard should be based on the analysis of the appearance, style and material of the faucet.
Selection and purchase of faucets-appearance:
When selecting, the qualified standards are bright, no bubbles, no defects, and no scratches. Ordinary faucets only have a coating of more than 10 microns, the purpose is to prevent rust, beautiful, and guarantee the life. Some experts revealed that when selecting, press the surface of the faucet with a finger, and the fingerprints quickly dissipated, indicating that the coating is good; the more the fingerprints are printed, the more flowers are worse. After choosing the appearance, you should also taste the feel of the faucet, whether the switch is smooth, the switch with a large range of up and down, left and right can adjust the water temperature without chaos, generally up to 30 degrees up and down, and 90 degrees left and right are the best. But one thing to keep in mind, lighter head doesn’t mean it feels good.
Selection and purchase of faucets-style:
At present, the faucets on the market are generally divided into two styles, namely, single-handle faucet and double-handle faucet. Single-handle faucet uses only one hole, while double handle can also be divided into four-inch hole and eight-inch hole. It depends on the style of the basin.
Basin faucet and kitchen faucet are generally installed on the countertop, so its water inlet pipe can be hard pipe and hose, the length is generally about 35 cm, in order to facilitate the connection, the connection between the home water pipe and the faucet inlet pipe must be installed A kind of valve, this kind of valve is called a triangle valve. When buying a faucet, don’t forget to match it together, otherwise you will have to run it again. And the triangle valve has different sizes, which should be imported according to the faucet you buy. Depending on the size of the water pipe, there are generally 3 points and 4 points. In addition, it should be noted that when installing the triangle valve, do not install it too low, lest the faucet inlet pipe is not long enough and cannot be connected, causing unnecessary trouble. Generally, install it about 50 to 60 cm above the ground.
Another thing is to buy a faucet and be sure not to forget to count the zeros, otherwise it will be more troublesome to take it back and install it. Generally, the accessories of the basin faucet mainly include the drainer, the lifting rod and the faucet fixing screw, bolt and fixing copper sheet, gasket; the bathtub faucet also has standard accessories such as a shower, two water inlet hoses, and a bracket. The mixing faucet produced by a regular enterprise has an installation size drawing and an imitation order when it leaves the factory. Pay attention to it when choosing. Import products must be more careful.
The selection and purchase of faucets-material:
After choosing the style, you must also understand the material of the faucet. At present, most of the built-in valve cores of the faucet on the market use steel ball valves and ceramic valves. The steel ball valve has become a solid and durable steel ball and strong pressure resistance. The shortcoming of the leader of the new-generation valve core is that the sealing rubber ring is easy to wear and will quickly age. The ceramic valve itself has a good sealing function, and the faucet with ceramic valve core can be more quiet and smooth. The faucet is made of stainless steel as the top grade. The stainless steel is resistant to acid and alkali and does not release harmful substances.
