First, Look At The Appearance: The Coating Should Be Bright As A Mirror
First, look at the brightness of the surface. The valve body of the faucet is made of brass. After grinding and polishing, the surface is coated with nickel and chrome. The coating of regular products has specific technical requirements and passes the neutral salt spray test, and does not rust within a specified period of time. Therefore, when buying, you should pay attention to the shiny surface, no burrs, no pores and no handmade oxidation spots. Identify the quality of the faucet, to see its brightness, the smoother the surface, the higher the brightness, the better the quality.
Second, Turn The Handle
Second, gently rotate the handle to see if it is light and flexible, there is no clogging phenomenon. Some very cheap products with a high-quality spool, the technical coefficient does not meet the standard, the price also differs by 3-4 times. Therefore, do not take the faucet price as the only standard to buy. Second, look at the faucet rotating handle, the gap between the faucet and the switch is not too big, whether easy to open, unimpeded, not slippery; low-quality faucet not only gap, and resistance.
Third, Listen To The Sound
A good faucet is cast in copper as a whole, and the sound is dull when you knock on it, but if it’s brittle, it must be stainless steel, and the quality is a notch below.
Fourth, Check The Parts
Check the various parts of the faucet, especially the main components are tightly assembled, can not have a loose feeling. Good faucet of the valve body, handle are made of brand-name brass refined, the weight is heavy, there is a sense of honor.
Fifth, The Test Water Flow: Rich Foam, Soft, Indicating That The Bubbler Is Better.
Consumers should try to buy the faucet with the bubbler, touch the water. The water flow is soft and the foam (bubble content in the water flow) is rich, which means that the quality of the bubbler is better. A bubbler has six layers, usually consisting of a metal mesh cover (some are plastic). When the water flows through the mesh, it is cut into a large number of small nozzles with air in between so that the water doesn’t splash around.
Sixth, Recognize The Brand: Choosing The Brand After-Sales Service Is More Secure
Finally, consumers should buy branded faucets from regular markets and supermarkets. Branded products have the manufacturer’s brand logo. Irregular or quality products often only have some paper labels, or even no logo. The faucet box should also be accompanied by the manufacturer’s brand logo, quality assurance and after-sales service card.
