First, the Kitchen Tap Mixers can rotate 360 degrees.
For the convenience of use, the kitchen faucet should be selected higher, and the outlet nozzle should be very long. It is best to extend it to the top of the outlet, and it cannot splash water. If there is a hot water line in the kitchen, this faucet should also be double.
In order to meet various needs of use, most of the kitchen faucets can now turn the main body of the faucet, while the faucet part and the faucet-type faucet can pull the faucet out to facilitate cleaning to all corners of the sink. The disadvantage is that it is extracted. When the spout is in place, one hand must be left to hold the spout. Some faucet taps can rotate 360° up and down.
Second, if the financial resources allow, the preferred material is stainless steel.
Kitchen faucets are generally made of brass, which is the most common copper faucet on the market. However, due to the characteristics of the kitchen environment, pure copper faucets are not necessarily the best choice.
All copper faucets have electroplating on the outermost layer, and the role of electroplating is to prevent internal brass corrosion and rust. The fumes in the kitchen are large, plus the greasy and clean hands on the hands when washing the dishes, will often need to clean the kitchen Tap Mixers.
If you do not use the correct method for cleaning, it is likely to damage the plating of the faucet, causing the faucet to be corroded and rusted. If you want to choose a full copper kitchen faucet, be sure to determine the excellent plating, otherwise it is easy to cause the Kitchen Tap Mixers to rust corrosion.
Now some manufacturers have used high-quality 304 stainless steel faucets. Compared with pure copper faucets, high-quality stainless steel faucets are lead-free, acid-resistant, alkali-resistant, non-corrosive, do not release harmful substances, and do not pollute tap water sources.
This is very important for the kitchen's drinking water; and stainless steel faucet does not need to be electroplated, extremely difficult to rust, hardness, toughness are more than twice as high as copper products, so it is very easy to clean.
However, due to the high degree of difficulty in the processing of stainless steel, current high-quality stainless steel mixers are usually relatively high in price.
Third, pay attention to whether the water spout can take care of both sides of the sink.
Pay attention to the length of the basin and faucet nozzle when buying. If the kitchen is double basin, pay attention to whether the length of the nozzle can take into account both sides of the sink when rotating.
Most of the kitchen faucets now allow the main body to rotate left and right. The faucet part, the pull-out faucet, can pull the faucet out to facilitate cleaning to all corners of the sink. The disadvantage is that when the faucet is pulled out, it must be free. Only hand to hold the spout.
Fourth, it has an anti-calcification system and an anti-backflow system.
Anti-calcification system: In the shower head and automatic cleaning system, calcium will be deposited, the same situation also occurs in the tap, where there will be a gathering of silicon. The integrated air cleaner has an anti-calcification system that internally prevents the device from being calcified.
Anti-backflow system: This system prevents dirty water from being drawn into the clean water pipe and consists of a layer of material. Devices equipped with anti-backflow systems are marked with a DVGM pass mark on the packaging surface.
