In 2016, the AQSIQ website announced the announcement of the State Supervision and Sampling Plan for Product Quality in 2016, which showed that at least forty types of household building materials in four categories, including ceramic sheet sealing spouts, will be the focus of the State Supervision and Sampling in 2016. In addition, in the decoration materials, including ceramic toilet, shower shower, bathtub and other sanitary products have also become the focus of sampling.

Purchased the shower and faucet from a well-known brand online, but when the faucet was installed, the inlet connection of the valve started leaking, and the valve surface is now rusted. The shower did not use a few times also began to leak, water drips have been connected to a large pot. I’m not sure if this is a good solution.
● Netizen Jing.
When the renovation did not have a faucet, to save trouble from the nearby building materials market to buy a no brand. After the installation has been leaking, and then please professional installer, they said the faucet threads have problems, simply can not with the pipe tightly screwed on, a faucet and then take back to return also quite trouble, can only admit bad luck.
The quality of well-known brands isn’t reliable either.
In February this year, the State General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine announced the results of a special national supervision of ceramic plate seal water spout product quality sampling, trademark “Zhuo En” “German bath” 36 batches of products failed. A total of 200 batches of ceramic sealing spouts produced by 200 enterprises in Beijing, Hebei, Liaoning, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui, Fujian, Jiangxi, Hunan and other places were sampled. After inspection, 36 batches of products produced by 36 enterprises failed, the detection rate of unqualified products was 18%, and the qualified rate of sampling batches was 82%. Unqualified items mainly include surface corrosion resistance, pipe thread accuracy, metal contaminants precipitation, hot and cold water mark, flow, flow uniformity, water efficiency level of the nozzle and other seven items.
From previous years, ceramic chip sealed water spout sampling pass rate, 2013 for 85%, 2015 for 80.5%, 2016 for 82%, this year compared to the last sampling rose by 1.5 percentage points. The Beijing News reporter learned that although the overall level of the water spout pass rate is more than 80%, but in some production areas, the water spout pass rate is low, and the difference is huge. From the results, the main water nozzle producing areas of Zhejiang, Fujian, Guangdong 3 provinces, the pass rate was 67.4%, 75.6%, 90%.
Surprisingly, the failure of the spouts is not all because of the “small brand”, but the well-known brand products, such as “Dongpeng”, “Mondekaou” also appeared on the black list. 2016 In January, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) announced on its official website the results of the national supervision and sampling of the quality of ceramic chip sealing spout products, and after inspection, 39 batches of products produced by 39 companies failed.
These failures may seem professional, but they are actually practical problems in use. For example, if the precision of the pipe threads is not up to standard, it will cause dripping and leakage, and some even have joints that fall off after installation and use. Missing or incorrectly labeled hot and cold water signs will pose a scalding hazard to consumers. The surface corrosion resistance is the assessment of water nozzles in the use of poor environmental conditions, air humidity, the degree of corrosion resistance. A spout that fails this test will produce patina, black spots or corrosion on its surface after a period of use. The precipitation of metallic contaminants directly affects personal safety. The flow rate, flow uniformity, and water efficiency rating of the spout do not meet the standard requirements will cause unnecessary waste of water resources and fail to achieve energy savings.
Faucet products can still be identified by their appearance. Water spout can also be felt from the gloss, feel. For example, the surface of the spout plating should be glossy and uniform, no peeling, cracking, pitting and other defects, the surface of the threads should have no dents, broken teeth and other obvious defects, on, off, left and right turn the handle, if you feel light, no hindrance feeling is that the spool is better.
