Bathroom faucet is one of the important items in every family, it affects our lives. A good faucet can even accompany you for 5-10 years. Therefore, for the new house decoration, you must choose the faucet carefully. Let me tell you how to choose a faucet.
The first thing to pay attention to when choosing a bathroom basin faucet is the material of the product. Because tap water comes out through the main body of the bathroom basin faucet, its material determines the quality of our daily water.
The mainstream materials on the market are brass and stainless steel. Especially faucets containing brass, which have antibacterial characteristics, are becoming more and more popular in the market.
In addition, faucets are also made of plastic, cast iron, and zinc alloy. However, because plastics are prone to aging and have a short service life, they are rarely used in households.
In order to meet people's various needs, the functions of bathroom basn faucets are becoming more and more humanized. In the production of faucets, there are ordinary basin faucets, as well as faucets with other functions, such as pull-out faucets (for washing hair and cleaning), 360° rotating faucets (for rinsing and washing face), and sensor faucets (for easy operation).

3. Surface treatment.
The faucet is placed in a humid place like the bathroom. If they are exposed to the outside for a long time, the surface is easy to oxidize. If the bathroom basinfaucet is still bright and clean after long-term use, the surface of the faucet must be treated. Therefore, you need to pay attention to the surface treatment of the faucet when purchasing. Copper faucets are generally electroplated, and stainless steel faucets are generally wire-drawn.
When purchasing, in a well-lit place, pay attention to see if the surface has burrs, pores, impurities, and is smooth to the touch. In addition, you can also blow a breath on the surface of the bathroom basin faucet. If the water vapor diffuses quickly, it means that the surface treatment is better.
4. Test the valve core.
The valve core is known as the heart of the faucet and determines the quality of the faucet. Qualified valve core need to be tested according to the national faucet standards, just like kobia bathroom faucets 500,000 times of opening and closing without leakage. Nowadays, most of the faucet valve cores are ceramic. Ceramic valve core has the advantages of wear resistance, good sealing and heat resistance.
When you buy a bathroom basin faucet, you can gently turn the handle of the faucet. You should feel that there is no gap between the faucet and the handle and whether it can be opened and closed easily.
5. Water Spout.
The water flow size of the bathroom basin faucet is also very important, and the foaming condition of the water flow is determined by the bubbler. Everyone is buying and testing the water on the spot. If the water flow is soft and the bubbles are sufficient, the bathroom basin faucet with good quality can be clearly seen by washing the back of the hand.
Faucets of good brands generally have good packaging. The package contains the product, product manual, product maintenance card, etc.
The above tips are also applicable to the selection of kitchen faucets and bathtub faucets. I hope everyone can choose suitable high-quality faucets.
