It can be divided into single-type, double-type and triple-type faucets, in addition to single handle and double handle.

3, according to the way to open

Can be divided into spiral, wrench, lift and induction. When the screw handle is opened, it needs to rotate a lot of turns; the wrench type handle generally only needs to be rotated 90 degrees; the lift-type handle only needs to be lifted up to discharge water; the inductive faucet will automatically discharge water as long as the hand reaches under the faucet.

4, according to the spool to divide

Can be divided into rubber core, ceramic valve core and stainless steel valve core. The most critical factor affecting the quality of the faucet is the spool. Therefore, the faucet using the rubber core is mostly a spiral-type cast iron faucet, which has been basically eliminated. The ceramic valve faucet has appeared in recent years, and the quality is better. It is more common nowadays; the stainless steel valve core has only recently appeared, and more Suitable for areas with poor water quality.

Part2: Selection and installation of quality faucet technology

If the quality of the bathroom accessories is not enough, it will cause a lot of trouble to the bathroom. Especially the hardware accessories such as the faucet and the hose have great influence on the durability of the sanitary ware. Therefore, when purchasing, there are still many Heart.
