First of all, the kitchen faucet can be rotated through 360°.
For convenience, the kitchen faucet should be in a higher position with a long spout. Ideally, it should extend over the drainpipe and not splash. If there are hot water pipes in the kitchen, the faucet should also be double-walled. To meet the needs of various purposes, kitchen faucets can usually rotate 360°.
Second, choose stainless steel material.
Kitchen faucets are generally made of brass, which is the most common pure copper faucet on the market. However, due to the characteristics of the kitchen environment, pure brass faucets may not be the best choice. All pure brass faucets are plated on the outermost layer. The plating serves to prevent corrosion and rusting of the brass inside. Kitchens have more fumes and grease and detergent on your hands from washing dishes can often require faucets to be cleaned. If the faucet is not cleaned in the right way, it is likely to damage the plating and cause corrosion and rusting of the faucet. If you choose an all-copper kitchen faucet, it must have excellent plating, otherwise it is easy to cause the faucet to rust and corrode.
Nowadays, some manufacturers use high quality 304 stainless steel to make faucets. Compared with pure copper faucets, high-quality stainless steel faucets are lead-free, acid-free, alkali-free, non-corrosive, non-hazardous and do not pollute the tap water. Features, and stainless steel taps do not need electroplating, extremely difficult to rust, its hardness and toughness is more than twice the copper products, so it is very convenient to clean. But because of the processing of stainless steel is more difficult, so the current quality of stainless steel faucet is usually more expensive.
Third, pay attention to whether the length of the spout can take care of the sides of the sink.
Pay attention to the length of the basin and the faucet when you buy. If the kitchen is a double basin, pay attention to whether the length of the spout can take care of both sides of the sink when you rotate it.
Currently, most kitchen faucets have bodies that can be rotated left or right. For the faucet part, the pull-out faucet can be pulled out for easy cleaning to all corners of the sink. The disadvantage is that the faucet is drawn out with one hand Hold the faucet.
Fourth, it has an anti-calcification system and an anti-backflow system.
Anti-calcification system. Calcium can be deposited in shower heads and automatic cleaning systems. The same is true on faucets, where silicon can build up. All-in-one air purifiers have an anti-calcification system that also prevents calcification inside the unit.
Anti-reflux system. This system prevents dirty water from being sucked into the fresh water hose and consists of multiple layers of material.
