Complete Classification of Faucets and How to Choose Faucets

One、 Complete Classification of Faucets

1. Classified by Material: can be divided into SUS304 stainless steel, cast iron, all plastic, brass, zinc alloy material faucets, polymer composite material faucets, and other categories.

2. Classified by Function: can be divided into basin faucet, kitchen sink faucet,bathtub faucet, shower faucet, bidet faucet .

3. According to Structure: can be divided into single unit, double unit, triple unit, and so on. There are generally two types of handles: single handle and double handle. Single connection type can be connected to cold water or hot water pipes; The dual type can be connected to both hot and cold pipes at the same time, and is often used as a faucet for bathroom sinks and kitchen sinks with hot water supply; In addition to connecting two pipes for hot and cold water, the triple type can also be connected to a shower nozzle, mainly used for faucets in bathtubs. A single handle faucet can adjust the temperature of hot and cold water through one handle, while a two handed handle needs to adjust the cold and hot water pipes separately to adjust the water temperature.

4. According to the opening methodcan be divided into spiral type, wrench type, lifting type, and induction type. When the spiral handle is opened, it needs to rotate many times; The wrench handle usually only needs to be rotated 90 degrees; The lifting handle only needs to be lifted upwards to release water; The induction faucet will automatically release water as long as the hand is extended under the faucet. In addition, there is a type of delayed shut-off faucet. After turning off the switch, the water will flow for a few more seconds before stopping, so that the dirty things on the hands can be washed clean again when turning off the faucet.

5. According to the valve core can be divided into several types: rubber cartridge (slow opening cartridgee), ceramic cartridge (fast opening cartridge), and brass cartridge. The most critical factor affecting the quality of faucets is the valve core. Rubber core faucets are mostly cast iron faucets with spiral opening, which have been basically phased out now; Ceramic valve cores and brass valve cores have relatively good quality and are the leading products selected by the company; For shower faucet products, our company can also provide Pressure Balance Cartridge, Temperature balance Cartridge, etc.

Two、 How do you usually choose a faucet?

1. Material: Common faucets on the market include stainless steel faucets, brass faucets, all plastic faucets, alloy faucets, and ceramic faucets.

The stainless steel faucet has a fashionable appearance, a good overall feeling, and has advantages such as corrosion resistance and pollution resistance. Stainless steel has a high hardness and has good resistance to scale and rust.

Brass faucets have good corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity, and long service life. However, for health reasons, it is necessary to choose faucet products made of lead-free copper, and the surface treatment process of the faucet should meet the standard to prevent oxidation, rust, and other phenomena.

Plastic faucets are generally PVC faucets. Features: small plastic faucet, with corrosion resistance, anti-aging, rust free, non-toxic, tasteless, high pressure resistance, light weight, simple and so on.

Alloy faucets are mostly made of aluminum alloy, zinc alloy, etc., which have high hardness and are relatively cheap. Some alloy materials have lower corrosion resistance than stainless steel.

Ceramic faucets are made of ceramics. Compared with other faucets, ceramic faucets have the advantages of not rusting, not oxidizing, and not easily worn.


2. Function: In terms of structure, faucets are divided into several types: single connection, double connection, and triple connection. In terms of installation method, faucets can be divided into tabletop installation, wall installation, etc. In terms of opening, faucets can be divided into spiral type, wrench type, lifting type, and induction type.


3. Valve Cartridge : The valve core of the faucet includes ceramic disc cartridge brass valve cartridge, and ceramic cartridge is the best.

4. Quality: When choosing, first check the brightness of the faucet, the brighter the faucet, the better; Secondly, rotate the handle. A good faucet should rotate the handle with moderate force, not too tight or too loose; Once again, listen to the sound of tapping the faucet. When a good faucet strikes, the sound is dull.
