How to choose a basin faucet?

👉To your preference

 

According to the installation position and opening of the faucet, it is divided into wall type and vertical type, single hole and double hole, single cooling and hot and cold. At present, the most used products in home decoration are vertical cooling and heating products, and single cooling products are widely used in public places.

 

👉All copper basin faucet

 

It is recommended to use an all-copper basin faucet as much as possible. Today, the technology of all-copper faucets is very mature and occupies most of the market share. The real all-copper faucet handle, decorative nut, conversion valve, wall cover, connecting nut, eccentric joint, spout shell and other components are all made of brass. After electroplating, they are not only beautiful and heavy, but also durable.

 

👉It is recommended to buy a basin faucet with a ceramic valve core

 

The valve core is the most important component of the faucet, which is directly related to the use experience and the life of the faucet. A good basin faucet usually has a service life of more than 5 years and can be opened 500,000 times smoothly. The valve core of this type of faucet is mostly ceramic quality, while the traditional copper core in the past is easy to age and not durable.

 

👉The spout length of the basin faucet

 

Basin faucets can be divided into vertical water outlet, inclined water outlet, rotating water outlet, pullable water outlet, wide mouth water outlet, etc. according to the water outlet.

 

  1. Vertical water discharge is the most traditional water discharge method. If the length of the faucet is too short, it may cause the hand to touch the edge of the washbasin when washing.

 

  1. The inclined water outlet means that the water outlet is slanted outward. This kind of water outlet can save space, and the water can be sprayed to the middle of the pool with a short nozzle. However, this faucet will flow down vertically when the water pressure is low or when the water flow is turned off, which still causes the problem of hand touching the edge of the washbasin.

 

  1. The rotating water outlet means that the faucet can be rotated 360°, which is convenient for cleaning the face, etc. However, some of the lower water outlets of the rotating faucet are too short (otherwise, the water will be sprayed out of the basin when spraying upwards), which will affect the convenience of normal washing. If the basin is too small, it is not recommended to use this faucet.

 

  1. The pullable water outlet means that the water outlet is connected to the faucet through a hose, which is usually embedded in the faucet, and can be pulled out for use when needed. The advantage is that you can freely let the faucet flow in any direction, but you must have a free hand to grab the faucet when you pull out the faucet.

 

  1. The wide mouth water outlet means that the water outlet is flat, and the water flows down in a waterfall when the water comes out, resulting in the effect of a water curtain. The characteristics of this faucet are beautiful and individual, but in terms of washing effect, the water flow is small and scattered, which is not as good as the traditional water outlet method.
