 1. What happens if the faucet leaks at home?

Most people think that leakage of a faucet is a problem with the valve spool. In fact, as long as it is used properly, the spool is not prone to problems. Therefore, if the faucet is leaking, it should be analyzed from its essence.

a. After the valve is closed, the faucet still discharges water. This phenomenon may be caused by the loose pressure of the pressure cap to loosen the valve core and seal off the water. The solution is to remove the handle and the decorative cover, and then tighten the pressure cap again. There may be a deformation of the apron at the bottom of the valve core. Can not seal the water, the solution is to remove the spool, check the bottom apron, reset it and reinstall.

b. Water leaks from around the valve plug. This phenomenon may be loose or displacement of the spool. The solution is to remove the spool and reinstall it once.

c. Water seeps out from the middle of the valve plug. This phenomenon is the damage of the valve core. The solution is to replace the valve core. If the faucet leaks, replace the valve core. This will definitely increase maintenance costs.

d. Leakage at the bottom of the faucet. This phenomenon is generally caused by the water pipe O-ring is not installed or deformed, the solution is to unscrew the hose, if it is found that the O-ring is not deformed, the O-ring and the inlet pipe will be re-fitted and installed. Yes, if the O-ring is found to be deformed, replace the O-ring.

2. The water in the washbasin faucet in the bathroom is very slow, and the tap water is getting smaller and smaller. How to solve it?

a, first look at the adjacent other faucet water is not very small, if it is also very small, is the water pressure problem. Insufficient water pressure, it is recommended to add an electric water pump; b. Blocked water channel or blockage of bubbler, there is rust or impurities, you can remove the valve core, flush the water channel again; if it is just the bubbler blocking, put the bubbler Remove it and wash it again on the line; c. Slow water may block the sewer, use a dredge agent or use physical negative pressure dredge; it may also be the sewer too thin, not supporting.

3, how to solve the faucet equipment is not correct?

During the installation process, you should first tap the faucet on the joint without the raw material tape and the joint of the inner wire to see if there is any problem with the inner wire on the street. It is found that the faucet is installed straight and then removed. If you re-wrap the raw material tape, you must not greet it with too much force. After winding it up, the raw material should be compacted by hand.

4. What happened to the leader and the shower?

This is caused by impurities clogging the filter screen. Simply remove the filter screen and remove impurities to install the filter.

5, bathtub tap changer failure how is it?

First, the relationship may be water pressure. If the water pressure is too low, the pressure switch may not be able to bounce. If the water pressure is too high, the transfer switch may not be able to withstand the pressure. Second, there may be impurities stuck on the switch. Switch cleaning.

6. When the handle is not rotating smoothly, what should I do?

Spool stuck. This phenomenon is that the impurities in the flowing water get stuck in the valve spool and make the valve plug not rotate smoothly, or even damage the valve plug. The solution is to clean out the impurities in the valve plug; if the valve plug is damaged, the valve plug should be replaced.

7. If the valve stem accidentally breaks, what should I do?

This is basically caused by using too much force, or improper operation, only to replace the spool. When used correctly, the opening angle should not exceed 23° and the rotation range should be within 110°.

8, sensor faucet can only be a single temperature?

No, sensor faucets also have hot and cold water outlets, and they can also be used to adjust the outlet water temperature.

9. What should I do if the time delay valve button is pressed and cannot be returned to cause the water to be turned off?

The specific reasons for this phenomenon are: a. The small groove in the delay sleeve cavity is blocked, but this possibility is relatively small; b. The delay glue and the push rod sealing glue deform and deteriorate, causing the rubber and the push rod or The friction force on the inner wall of the delay sleeve increases, and when the friction force is greater than the spring and hydraulic force that contribute to its reset, it cannot be reset.

10. When the time delay valve is pressed, there is a dripping phenomenon at the button. How to solve it?

a. Check whether the small groove in the delay sleeve cavity is blocked. If it is blocked, use a sharp object to gently remove the blockage;

b. Check whether the delay glue and the push rod sealing glue are deformed or deteriorated. Replace the rubber if it is deformed or deteriorated.

11, delay valve delay is not enough, often with several times?

There are two reasons for this phenomenon: a. If the water pressure is too small, insufficient flushing will directly cause the delay to be too short, or not be delayed;

b. The delay slot is too large. The manufacturer's design and production improvements will reduce the delay slot.

12. Why are some faucet delay valves more laborious when pressed?

Because the water pressure is too great (more than 8 kg water pressure is a bit laborious), especially some children and women press harder.

13, delay valve can not afford how it matter?

This is related to water pressure. The delay valve works by using water pressure to close the pop-up valve. When the water pressure is too low, the delay valve may not work.

14, the use of  Triflow Taps in the case of water pressure is considered high pressure?

Tap water pressure is generally 3-5 kg, which is about 0.3-0.5 MPa. If the pressure exceeds 6 kilograms, it will be relatively high. People will feel uncomfortable if they use the faucet normally; if it is less than 3 kilograms, the water pressure is generally considered lower.

15. What kinds of common spools are on the market? Which type has a long service life? 

Common faucet spools are available in three types: ceramic spools, shaft roller spools, and stainless steel ball valves.

A, ceramic chip faucet: is the most common type of valve core, its advantages are low prices, less pollution of water quality, but because the ceramic texture is more brittle, easy to break.

b. Shaft roller faucet: The advantage is smooth handle rotation, easy operation, easy and comfortable feel, anti-aging, wear resistance.

c, stainless steel faucet valve core: is currently a high technology content of a leading valve core, some high-end bathroom brands are using laser technology processing irregular seven-hole steel ball valve, as its latest tap valve product. The ball valve core is particularly suitable for areas with poor water quality because it is not affected by impurities in the water and does not shorten its service life. Moreover, the handle of the steel ball valve core has a relatively large angle in the area of adjusting the warm water, which can accurately control the water temperature, ensure that the hot water flows quickly and accurately, and saves resources as much as possible.
