The pipe threads are the pipe threads that connect the faucet to the water pipe. Generally speaking, the precision of the pipe threads not only affects the installation, but also causes the leakage of water pipes and losses to the users during the use after installation.
3. Monobloc faucet
As the name implies, the single faucet has only one inlet pipe, only one water pipe can be hot or cold. Usually used in more common places, such as outdoor, public toilets, etc., the price is relatively cheap.

The two-handle control faucet, also known as the two-handle faucet. There are two inlet pipes, one for the hot water pipe and one for the cold water pipe, which are controlled by two handles. In the process of using, you can control the water temperature by adjusting the two handles. In some high-class hotels, toilets and other places, double faucets with hot and cold water can be used.
