In addition to large pieces of paint and paint, hardware is also essential in the decoration. As an important hardware material, the faucet has a wide variety of brands on the market, and the quality is also uneven. The inferior faucets not only have a short service life, but also are harmful to our health, so the owners should pay more attention when purchasing. So, how do we buy a faucet? Let's take a look at the five points of the Stainless Steel Kitchen Faucet with the small series!

First, look for the brand
When buying metal faucets, the owners should go to the regular store to find some well-known brands, so that they can get more perfect after-sales protection. The informal products are often without any mark or just some paper labels, formal The faucet packaging should also be accompanied by brand identity, quality assurance and after-sales service. Remind everyone to be cautious and cautious when buying faucets, and not to listen to others.

Second, the surface plating of the faucet must be bright
After the faucet has been ground and polished, in order to prevent the faucet from being oxidized, a nickel or chromium layer is plated on the surface. The nickel or chromium has the function of resisting neutral hydrochloric acid, and protects the faucet from corrosion for a long time. When purchasing, it is best to place the faucet in a well-lit area. There are no oxidized spots on the surface of the faucet, no pores, no leakage and bubbles, and burn marks. The color is uniform and there is no burr and sand. After pressing the faucet with a finger, the fingerprint spreads quickly and has no trace, and it is not easy to adhere to dirt.

Third, quality testing
The main body of the faucet is generally brass. The quality of the products made of brass is guaranteed to be the best. The higher the purity of the brass, the better the quality of the plating, and the more corrosion-resistant the surface is. In order to reduce the cost, some manufacturers choose zinc alloy instead of brass. Although the country allows the use of zinc alloy materials instead of brass, the zinc alloy plating quality is poor and the corrosion resistance is not strong. In general, consumers can use the method of estimating weight when purchasing. Brass is heavier and harder, and zinc alloy is lighter and softer.

Fourth, rotate the handle and experience the spool
The faucet spools are usually steel ball spools and ceramic spools. The steel ball valve core has good pressure resistance, but the rubber sealing ring which is used for sealing is easy to wear and aging is fast. The ceramic valve core is more resistant to heat and wear, and has a good sealing performance, so the number of opening resistance will be more. No faucet dripping due to wear of the valve plug. The faucet with ceramic valve core is more comfortable and smooth in hand, and opens and closes quickly. When purchasing, you can easily judge whether the spool is good or bad according to the feel when turning the handle. In general, the consumer turns the handle up, down, left, and right. If it feels light and has no blockage, the spool is better.

Fifth, test the water flow, subject to foaming
When you buy a faucet, open the faucet to check the water, select the faucet with a bubbler, and touch the water with your fingers. The water flow is soft and the bubble content is rich, indicating that the bubbler is of good quality. The bubbler generally has six layers, usually consisting of a metal mesh cover. After the water flows through the mesh cover, it is divided into a number of small water columns, which are interspersed with air so as not to splash the water.
