According to the structure, it can be divided into several types: single-type, double-type and triple-type. In addition, there are single handles and double handles. The single-connected type can be connected to the cold water pipe or the hot water pipe; the double-connected type can connect two hot and cold pipes at the same time, and is mostly used for the bathroom sink and the faucet of the kitchen sink with hot water supply; the triple-type hot and cold water is removed. Outside the pipe, it can also be connected to a shower head, mainly used for the faucet of the bathtub. The single handle faucet can adjust the temperature of the hot and cold water through one handle, and the double handle needs to adjust the cold water pipe and the hot water pipe separately to adjust the water temperature.
According to the material, it can be divided into: SUS304 stainless steel, cast iron, all plastic, brass, zinc alloy material faucet, polymer composite faucet and other categories.
According to the opening method, it can be divided into: spiral type, wrench type, lift type and inductive type. When the spiral handle is opened, it needs to rotate a lot of turns; the wrench type handle generally only needs to be rotated by 90 degrees; the lift-type handle only needs to be lifted up to discharge water; the inductive faucet will automatically discharge water as long as the hand reaches under the faucet. In addition, there is a time-closed faucet. After the switch is turned off, the water will flow for a few more seconds before stopping, so that the dirty things on the hands when the faucet is closed can be washed again.
According to the valve core, it can be divided into: rubber core (slow open valve core), ceramic valve core (fast open valve core) and stainless steel valve core. The most important factor affecting the quality of the faucet is the valve core. The faucet using the rubber core is mostly a screw-type open cast iron faucet, which has been basically eliminated; the ceramic valve faucet has appeared in recent years, the quality is better, more common; stainless steel valve core More suitable for areas with poor water quality.
