Most families, regardless of space and usage requirements, only bought a lot of faucets of the same kind to install on the house. In fact, it is unscientific. At least one family can be equipped with three types of faucets: single cold, cold and warm, and foaming.
According to the purpose of the faucet, it can be divided into a basin, a kitchen basin, a bathtub, a washing machine and a mop pool faucet. In terms of function and structure, it can be divided into a single-cooled ordinary faucet, a sensor faucet, a heating and cooling faucet, and a belt. The water-saving faucet of the bubbler, etc., the basin, the kitchen basin and the bathtub faucet are generally of the type of cold and warm type and the type of bubbler. The washing machine and the mop pool faucet can be used in a single cold type, and the balcony and the like are generally not recommended. The faucet of the bubbler can not only speed up the washing and dragging, but also increase the scouring ability, but it also has a certain water saving effect.
Hot and cold water taps cannot be directly connected to a water pipe
Many people think that it is okay to buy a hot and cold faucet at home but only connect one water inlet hose. In fact, the ceramic valve core is a three-port inter-connecting structure, and the water from the two inlet hoses is mixed before the faucet outlet Outflow, only one water pipe hot and cold water faucet will be unable to use, many people are unclear, so I thought it was the quality of the cold and hot control is not good, if it is not good, there will be water flooding Jinshan.
The hot and cold water faucet uses the different opening angles of the ceramic valve core to control the mixing ratio of the hot and cold water to achieve the water temperature adjustment function. If your home does have only one cold water pipe and buys a hot and cold faucet, it is recommended that you can pick it up at the same time. The upper two inlet hoses, then one is connected to the angle valve, and the other is blocked with a wire plug.
The faucet and the water pipe must have an angle valve
Many people know that they have to install a faucet, but they don’t know how to install an angle valve. The angle valve outlet is at a right angle of 90 degrees to the inlet, which can be used to connect the internal wall hose and faucet hose and control the water flow switch.
Any hot and cold faucet (with hot and cold water inlet hose) must use the angle valve to connect with the water pipe, and the faucet like the washing machine faucet, the mop pool faucet, etc. can be directly connected with the water pipe, so no angle valve is needed. Generally speaking, each hot and cold faucet needs two angle valves to match each other. In case of leakage of the faucet, it is only necessary to close the angle valve, which will not affect the water in other places in the home.
The appearance and interior of the water dragon are regularly cleaned
How long has the faucet in your home not been cleaned? Although we use the faucet almost every day, few people pay attention to the surface of the faucet and even the interior.
After installing the faucet, the smudge fingerprint on the surface is recommended to be cleaned once every other month. Use a clean water to wash the surface layer with a soft cloth to dry it; and the appearance of the brightness maintenance can be washed once a month with the car wax. The cleaning of the surface is for aesthetics, and internal cleaning is the most important factor affecting the service life.
In addition, if the faucet has a reduced water volume or a water fork, it means that the faucet’s bubbler is clogged. At this time, the bubbler should be removed, soaked in vinegar, and cleaned with a small brush or other tools. Then reinstall it.
The faucet cannot be used immediately
Most people are accustomed to use the faucet in the morning and use it directly. However, in general, before using the faucet the next day, the water accumulated in the faucet should be discharged first and then used.
For faucets, people are “smelling lead color change”. In fact, no matter how good the faucet is, it is difficult to avoid more or less lead element precipitation pollution, but in general, due to the role of the lead protective film inside the faucet, its content is greatly Reduce to the standard level.
However, the water in the long-term retention faucet will cause the lead protective film to fall off, and the lead element will precipitate after being dissolved in water. In particular, traditional faucets and water pipes are more likely to rust and pollute the water, so it is necessary to first drain
