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 through the neutral salt spray test, there is no rust within the specified time limit. Therefore, when purchasing, pay attention to the gloss of the surface, the hand touches no burrs, no pores, no oxidation spots. To distinguish the quality of the faucet depends on its brightness, the smoother the surface, the brighter the better the quality.
Second, turn handle
The second is to gently turn the handle to see if it is light and flexible, with or without blocking stagnation. Some very cheap products use a quality spool, the technical coefficient is not up to standard, and their price is 3-4 times different. Therefore, do not set the faucet price as the only standard when purchasing. When the faucet rotates the handle, there is no excessive gap between the faucet and the switch, and the opening is easy and unobstructed, and does not slip; the inferior faucet not only has a large gap, but also has a large resistance.
Third, listen to the sound
The good faucet is the overall casting of copper, the sound is dull when knocked; if the sound is very brittle, it must be stainless steel, the quality is worse than a grade.
Fourth, check the parts
Check the various parts of the faucet, especially if the main parts are assembled tightly, and there should be no loose feeling. The valve body and handle of the good faucet are all refined with the brand name brass, and the weight is heavier and has a dignified feeling.
Fifth,Test water flow: foaming is rich and soft, indicating that the bubbler is better
Consumers should try to choose a faucet with a bubbler when purchasing, and feel the water flow with the hand touch. The water flow is soft and foaming (the bubble content of the water flow) is rich, indicating that the bubbler quality is better. The bubbler generally has six layers, usually consisting of a metal mesh cover (partially plastic). When the water flows through the mesh cover, it is cut into a large number of small water columns with air in between, so that the water does not splash around.
Sixth, recognize the brand: choose the brand after-sales service is more secure
Finally, consumers should go to the formal market and supermarkets to buy branded taps. Branded goods have the brand identity of the manufacturer. Non-formal products or quality products often only have some paper labels attached, or even no mark. The manufacturer’s brand logo, quality guarantee and after-sales service card should also be included in the faucet packaging box.
