Most families do not divide the space and use needs, buy a lot of the same faucet to the house to install only, in fact, this is not scientific, at least in a family can have a single cold type, cold and warm type, foam type 3 kinds of faucets.
Faucets are divided by use into basins, kitchen basins, bathtubs, washing machines and mops. And from the function and structure, and can be divided into single cold ordinary faucet, sensor faucet, variable temperature faucet, take the bubble water-saving faucet, etc.. The common types of faucets for basins, kitchen basins and bathtubs are variable temperature and with bubbles, and single-cooler faucets are used for washing machines and mop sinks. It is generally not recommended to purchase faucets with bubbles in areas such as balconies. This can not only speed up the rinse and drag, but also increase the washing capacity and play a water-saving effect.
1. The hot and cold faucet can not be directly through the water pipe
Many people think that they have bought hot and cold water faucets at home, but only one inlet hose can be connected. In fact, the ceramic valve core is a three-port interflow structure. It needs two water inlet hose water mixture to come out of the faucet outlet.
2. Faucet and water pipe connection must have corner valve
Many people know about faucets, but they don’t know about angle valves. Angle valves have a 90-degree angle between the outlet and inlet, connect the inner wall water pipe to the faucet hose, and control the water flow on and off.
Usually hot and cold water faucets (with hot and cold water inlet pipes) must use an angle valve to connect to the water hose, while faucets similar to washing machine faucets and mop sink faucets open quickly and can be connected directly to the water hose, as this does not require an angle valve. Generally, each hot and cold water faucet needs two angle valves to match each other. In case there is a leak in the faucet, just close the angle valve, so that will not affect the rest of the home water.
3. The exterior and interior of the faucet should be cleaned regularly

And the exterior brightness maintenance can be cleaned once a month with car wax. Surface cleaning is for the sake of aesthetics, internal cleaning is the most important factor that affects the service life.
In addition, if the faucet appears to reduce the amount of water or bifurcation of the feed water, indicating that the faucet’s bubbler is blocked, the bubbler should be removed, soaked in vinegar, with a small brush or other tools to clean up debris, reinstalled.
4. The faucet can’t be used immediately
Most people are used to turning on the faucet in the morning and using it straight away. However, the faucet that will accumulate overnight is generally drained of some stale water before it is used the next day and occupied next.
