Faucet is an indispensable item in home decoration, but people are often confused when buying it and don't know how to choose. Today we will introduce you to the bathroom sink faucets buying strategy which mainly consists of three parts. I hope that after reading this article, when buying a filtered water faucet, you can make a purposeful choice and buy a high-quality basin faucet.
First of all, you have to know that the faucet has three most basic elements: valve body, electroplating and valve core
1. Body material
The main body is the trunk part of the faucet. The material of the bath mixer tap is very important and fundamentally determines the water quality. The following are the different faucet body materials:
Copper alloy faucet
Copper alloy bathroom tap set is currently recognized as the most suitable faucet material for household use. Because copper has good processability, fluidity and formability, and copper ions have a bactericidal effect, the inner wall does not breed bacteria, making it the most suitable carrier for "water".
Lead faucet is also common. But if the lead content is too high, it is harmful to the human body. Therefore, some brands of faucets use low-lead copper. Since it is generally difficult to judge the lead content, it is recommended to choose a major brand vanity faucet to be more assured.
Zinc alloy faucet
Zinc alloy wall mounted wash basin tap is an alloy based on zinc with elements such as aluminum, copper, magnesium, cadmium, lead, and titanium added. Zinc alloys are easily corroded in water and can even cause harm to the human body. But it has a low price.
Stainless steel faucet
Stainless steel wash basin spout has the advantages of acid resistance, alkali resistance and corrosion resistance, but it does not have antibacterial function.
The common surface treatment on the market is electroplating, which mainly includes chromium plating, nickel plating, titanium plating and gold plating.
Chrome plating is the most common coating for faucets. It has high hardness and wear resistance. Chromium is not easy to change in a humid environment and can maintain the surface gloss for a long time. In addition, with a good appearance, chrome-plated small sink mixer taps are more popular with consumers.
Metallic nickel can resist the corrosion of the atmosphere and certain acids, has good corrosion resistance and stability, and can resist the corrosion of water vapor and certain acids, so the nickel layer has high stability in a humid environment.
Electroplated titanium gold has the advantages of high strength, low density, strong toughness, and good corrosion resistance. The surface of the titanium-plated gold faucet is as smooth as a mirror, and the golden luster is elegant and rich and very decorative. But its production process is complicated, the cost is higher, and the price is more expensive than others.
3. Valve core
The valve core is a valve component that realizes basic functions such as direction control, pressure control or flow control through the rotation of the valve stem. The quality of the spool is also very important to the home bathroom faucet.
When buying sanitary products, you must select a big brand, because sanitary ware is a durable consumer product that can be used for a long time, so you must buy a big brand product, whose material and the quality are reliable.
