Second, choose stainless steel.
Kitchen faucets are generally made of brass, which is the most common pure copper faucet on the market. However, due to the characteristics of the kitchen environment, pure copper faucets are not necessarily the best choice. All pure copper faucets are electroplated on the outermost layer. The function of electroplating is to prevent corrosion and rust of the brass inside. The kitchen has a lot of oil fumes, and the greasy and cleaning detergents on the hands when washing dishes will often require cleaning the faucet. If you do not use the correct method for cleaning, it is likely to destroy the plating of the faucet, causing the faucet to corrode and rust. If you choose a full copper kitchen faucet, be sure to have excellent electroplating, otherwise the faucet will easily cause rust and corrosion.
Now, some manufacturers use high-quality 304 stainless steel to make faucets. Compared with pure copper faucets, high-quality stainless steel faucets have no lead, acid, alkali, corrosion, no harmful substances, and do not pollute tap water. Features, and the stainless steel faucet does not require electroplating, it is extremely difficult to rust, and its hardness and toughness are more than twice that of copper products, so it is very convenient to clean. However, because stainless steel is difficult to process, the current high-quality stainless steel faucets are usually relatively expensive.
Third, we must pay attention to whether the length of the spout can take into account both sides of the sink.
Pay attention to the length of the basin and the faucet when purchasing. If the kitchen is a double basin, pay attention to whether the length of the nozzle can take into account both sides of the sink when rotating.
At present, most kitchen faucets can rotate the main body of the faucet left and right, and the faucet part, the pull-out faucet can pull out the faucet, easy to clean to all corners of the sink, the disadvantage is that when the faucet is drawn out, one Hold the faucet with one hand.
Fourth, it has an anti-calcification system and an anti-backflow system.
Anti-calcification system: Calcium is deposited in both the shower head and the automatic cleaning system. The same happens on the faucet, where silicon will accumulate. The integrated air cleaner has an anti-calcification system, which can also prevent the equipment from being calcified internally.
Anti-backflow system: This system prevents dirty water from being sucked into the fresh water pipe, and is composed of layers of material.
