(1) Determine the type of tub you are using.
According to the location and opening of the faucet installation, it is divided into wall and vertical, single hole and double hole, single cold and hot and cold. Currently, the most widely used product in the home is the vertical hot and cold, single-cooled type. This product is mainly suitable for installation in public places where there is no hot water source. The choice of basin faucet has a lot to do with the wash basin. At present, there are several types of washbasins on the market, such as on-stage, in-stage and under-stage. Depending on the opening, they are divided into single, double and triple holes. Before purchasing a faucet, it is important to install the faucet on the washbasin. Depending on the outlet, there are vertical outlet, inclined outlet, rotating outlet, pullable outlet, wide outlet and so on.
(2) It is recommended to purchase a copper basin faucet.
It is recommended to use all copper basin faucet. The process of copper faucets is now very mature and occupies a large market share. Real brass faucet handles, decorative nuts, switch valves, wall covers, connecting nuts and eccentric joints, outlet casings and other components are made of brass. After plating, they are not only beautiful and heavy, but also durable. It is necessary to inquire in detail whether the faucet is truly made of brass or whether the body is made entirely of brass. In most cases, you can tell if the faucet is all copper by the weight and the sound. All-copper faucets are usually heavier and have a dull and low sound.
(3) It is recommended to buy ceramic faucet basin faucets.
The valve core is the most important part of the faucet. It is directly related to the use experience and service life of the faucet. At this stage, it is recommended to choose the ceramic valve core. However, the ceramic valve core is divided into several grades according to the different materials and techniques. It is difficult for consumers themselves to judge the quality of the valve core. Therefore, when choosing, it is best to buy products that have been evaluated by professional evaluation agencies, with detailed data and guaranteed quality.
(4) Carefully choose the length of the basin faucet.
Vertical sewage is the most traditional way of sewage. When you buy this kind of faucet, you should pay attention to the length of the faucet. If it is too short, it may cause your hand to touch the edge of the wash basin.
An inclined spout is a spout that squirts water outward. This spout saves space. If the spout is short, water can spray into the middle of the pool, but the spout has a lower pressure or will flow. Hours, the water will flow vertically downward, still allowing your hand to touch the edge of the sink.
The swivel out is a faucet that can be rotated 360° to make it easier to wash your face. However, the lower spout of some swivel-out faucets is too short (otherwise the water would be sprayed out of the basin when sprayed), which can interfere with the convenience of proper washing. This faucet is not recommended if the wash basin is too small.
The spout can be pulled out and the spout is connected to the faucet via a hose, usually embedded in the faucet and can be removed when needed. The advantage is that the faucet can drain freely in any direction, but a hand must be freed up to grasp the faucet when it is pulled out.
The spout is wide, which means that the spout is flat. When discharged, the water flows down in a waterfall shape. Sometimes with glass to support the spout, forming a water curtain. This kind of faucet is characterized by beauty and personality, but from the washing effect, the water flow is small and scattered, not as good as the traditional way of using water.
(5) It is recommended to buy basin faucets with lifting handles.
The handles of the basin faucet are mainly divided into single handle and double handle, and the single handle has spiral, lifting, wrench, inductive, time-delayed and so on.
The single handle features convenient control and simple structure. The double handle requires two hands to adjust the water temperature, but this style can be used in more situations (such as under-counter basins). When the single-handle faucet is turned on and off, the water pressure rises rapidly. If the product doesn’t have a high copper content, it won’t be able to withstand the expansion of water pressure, so single-handle faucets should be opened and used slowly. Close. A two-handle faucet has a wider pressure range, and the water pressure is released slowly, so you won’t have this problem.
