12 Points for attention when purchasing stainless steel faucets

Weight: You can’t buy a faucet that is too light. Too light is mainly because the manufacturer hollowed out the copper inside to reduce costs. The faucet looks big and is not heavy to hold. It is easier to withstand the water pressure burst.
Handles: Combination faucets are easy to use because usually only one hand is free when using the sink.
Spout: The elevated spout makes filling the washbasin simple.
Spool: This is the heart of the faucet. Both hot and cold water faucets use ceramic spools. The quality of the spools is the best in Spain, Kangqin in Taiwan, and Zhuhai.

Rotation angle: Being able to rotate 180 degrees makes work easier, while being able to rotate 360 degrees only makes sense for a sink placed in the center of the house. Extendable Showerhead: Increases the effective radius, allowing both sinks and containers to be filled faster.
Hoses: Experience has shown that 50 cm long tubing is sufficient, and 70 cm or more are commercially available. Be careful not to buy aluminum wire pipes, use stainless steel wires, hold them tightly in your hands and pull them, the hands will turn black, it is aluminum wires, if there is no change, it is stainless steel wires, preferably stainless steel braided with 5 international standard wires on the outside Hose, the inner tube of the hose is made of EPDM material, the connecting nut is red stamped and forged, and the surface is sand-plated with 4miu (thickness) nickel layer.
Shower pipes: In order not to make unpleasant noises, metal pipes should be avoided as much as possible.


Anti-calcification system: Calcium deposits can be found in shower heads and automatic cleaning systems, and the same happens in faucets, where silicon can accumulate. The integrated air cleaner has an anti-calcification system, which also prevents the equipment from being calcified internally.

Anti-Backflow System: This system prevents dirty water from being sucked into the clean water pipe and consists of layers of material. Equipment equipped with an anti-backflow system will be marked with the DVGW pass mark on the packaging surface.
Cleaning: The streamlined design does not require much cleaning. When cleaning, do not use coarse-grained detergents such as decontamination powder and polishing powder or nylon brushes to clean. Use an appropriate amount of diluted shampoo and body wash to soak the cloth to wipe it. After rinsing with clean water, wipe the faucet with a dry soft cloth.
Material: Stainless steel is hygienic and environmentally friendly. Chrome soldered equipment is easy to care for and harmless to humans, but there are other elements that are added during the manufacturing process. Therefore, we must pay attention to what materials the equipment is made of. Not all countries have such high standards as Germany.
Durability: The anti-calcification system keeps the device free from water leaks and the risk of handle damage.
Repair: In terms of repair costs, various equipments are quite different, and the materials of some equipments are not easy to obtain. Repairing is actually quite simple, as long as there are corresponding accessories and of course a structural diagram, otherwise I don't know how to put it back after dismantling.
