When installing a faucet
in the kitchen at home, you need to choose a good style.
First, kitchen faucets are classified according to materials, which can be divided into SUS304 stainless steel, cast iron, all-plastic, brass, zinc alloy faucets, polymer composite faucets and other categories.
Second, the kitchen faucet is divided according to the opening method, which can be divided into screw type, wrench type, lift type and induction type. When the screw-type handle is opened, it needs to be rotated many times; the wrench-type handle generally only needs to be rotated 90 degrees; the lift-type handle only needs to be lifted up to discharge water; the sensor-type faucet will automatically discharge water as long as the hand is placed under the faucet.
Third, the kitchen faucet is divided according to the structure, and can be divided into several types of faucets such as single-connection, double-connection and triple-connection. In addition, there are single handle and double handle points. The single type can be connected to a cold water pipe or a hot water pipe; the double type can be connected to two hot and cold pipes at the same time, which is mostly used in the faucet of the bathroom vanity and the kitchen sink with hot water supply; the triple type can be connected to two hot and cold pipes. In addition to the pipe, it can also be connected to the shower head, which is mainly used for the faucet of the bathtub.
Fourth, kitchen faucets are divided according to the valve core, which can be divided into rubber core (slow opening valve core), ceramic valve core (quick opening valve core) and stainless steel valve core. The most critical factor affecting the quality of the faucet is the valve core. The faucets with rubber cores are mostly cast iron faucets with screw opening, which have been basically eliminated; ceramic valve core faucets have appeared in recent years, with better quality and more common; stainless steel valve cores are more suitable for areas with poor water quality.
