The History Of Taps

- May 22, 2018 -

The taps in Istanbul first appeared in the 16th century, four or five hundred years earlier than Beijing.

Before the appearance of the faucet, a water-filled spring wall was inlaid with a beast-like shape, usually made of stone, and a small number of “spill nozzles” made of metal (I did not translate well), and the water that flowed from there was always not Plus any control of the long running water. In order to avoid wasting water and solving the continuous shortage of water resources, people developed taps.

The original faucet was cast in bronze and later replaced with cheaper brass. Some taps are simple and practical, while others are decorative. Various types of faucets, such as snakes, dragon shapes, ram head shapes, geometric shapes, or flower shapes all reflect the architectural style of that era. The faucets in the palace and other important buildings are mostly made of silver, silver alloy or bronze plated and carved. During the 18th and 19th centuries, faucets made for the courts and mansions attached more importance to the decorative nature, so that the priests seized the Lord and made their practical functions subordinate to the decorative effects. They said that they were craftsmanship.

Inside the palace, on the street, there are various ancient faucets on the wall of the water fountain or outside the mosque. However, only by visiting the faucet museum can we really appreciate how the decorativeness of the Ottoman faucet surpasses its practicality. The faucet museum belongs to E.C.A., a company that produces taps in Turkey. Among them are many Ottoman faucets, and their exquisite workmanship is beyond my expectation. However, in order to facilitate maintenance, these faucets were originally designed to be easily disassembled, thus resulting in the dispersion of the faucets. It is difficult for existing faucets to find out what kind of building they belong to. We can only guess: is the court? Regal home? Or on the street? Common people's home?

In the 21st century, the consumer market has undergone tremendous changes. The prosperity of the material has given birth to a worldwide trend of thoughts on landscape life. Many consumers have begun to have their own unique understanding and rights regarding the quality of life. They excel in exquisite life. The banner of materialism, cultural interest, individuality, self, etc. creates its own perfect living space. In the past, when many households purchased faucets, they simply thought that they could use it. Nowadays, with the increasingly obvious style of home decoration, the bathroom space has begun to show its individuality. In order to create a personalized bathroom space, from the faucet, washbasin, shower equipment to bathroom accessories, unique design, everywhere highlights the personality and extraordinary The taste and classic art design have broken through the usual way of thinking and used the faucet as a work of art to bring a bit of cultural atmosphere to the bathroom space. Under this concept of new consumption, the art faucet enables users to appreciate and appreciate value. The artistic faucet adds rich user-friendly design, subdivides the customer groups, and pays attention to the actual needs of different age groups, such as the "Dragon". Modeling gives people a sense of auspiciousness, which makes them loved by the middle-aged and older groups. Children also become the target customers of the sanitary ware. They have completely different needs and demands from adults. According to the children's special needs, they can satisfy the children. Emotional appeals, such as cartoon rabbits and mouse models, have been designed. They are deeply loved by children, as well as people and plants. They also make women friends love them. In order to get the broad prospects of the consumer market.


How to buy a good faucet:

1.See brightness

The surface chrome plating process of a good faucet is very particular, and it usually takes several steps to complete it. Resolving a faucet depends on its brightness. The smoother and brighter the surface, the better the quality.

2.Turn handle

When the faucet turns the handle, there is no excessive clearance between the faucet and the switch, and the opening is easy and unrestrained, and it does not slip. Poor quality taps not only have large gaps, but also have a large sense of obstruction.

3.Listen to the sound

The material of the faucet is the most difficult to distinguish. The leading faucet is an overall casting, and the sound of banging is boring. If the sound is very brittle, it must be made of low-grade stainless steel, which contains more iron, and the quality will be worse.

4.Identification mark

If you can't tell, you can choose a regular brand. General regular goods have manufacturer's brand identity, and some non-regular products or some quality products often only stick some paper labels, and even without any mark, must pay attention to when purchasing.
