As for the water-saving faucet, I believe everyone has heard of it for a long time, but it has always been unknown. Is the water-saving faucet reliable? What is its water-saving principle? Besides saving water, does it have any other functions? Is it expensive? Is there a unified national standard for water-saving faucets? Does the faucet that controls the intensity of regulation of water output be regarded as a water-saving faucet? These doubts are more or less wanted to be raised by everyone who is interested in water-saving faucets.
First of all, let's talk about ordinary faucets. I believe that when we use faucets, we will encounter problems such as excessive water flow, large amount of water, and easy splash. these three problems all have one thing in common, that is, wasting water, as we often wash our hands. We actually don't need so much water to wash our hands clean, but often because the amount of water in the faucet is too large, or when the water comes out, the water resources are wasted.
Let's take a look at the actual water-saving effect. Before this, some experts have done professional water-saving tests, using ordinary faucets and water-saving faucets for one minute, respectively. The results show that the water output of ordinary faucets is 12.59 liters, exceeding the third-grade water efficiency, and 6.96 litres of water-saving faucets are in line with the secondary water efficiency. Thus it can be seen that the water-saving faucet does play a certain role in water-saving.
In fact, the water-saving principle of the water-saving faucet is also very simple, which is mainly aimed at improving the problems mentioned above when the ordinary faucet comes out of the water, so as to achieve the water-saving effect. First of all, from the pipeline design optimization, subtract unnecessary space, then install a interceptor at the inlet and outlet, and finally use ceramic pieces to seal the spool.
Among the three items, the most critical one has to mention the use of ceramic spool instead of the traditional spiral faucet, the former can speed up the speed of opening and closing, only the latter can be completed in 1 to 10 time, but also reduce the possible leakage phenomenon, I believe that everyone has tried to close the faucet will also have some water will flow out, and then completely closed, and ceramic spool can be very good to avoid this phenomenon. A Mickle makes a Mickle, and the water-saving faucet can naturally achieve the water-saving effect.
And the foaming device is another way to save water faucet. Blister, also known as water-saving valve, the faucet adds a special foaming device, water will not splash, and save water, with bubbles can improve the affinity of water scouring, can effectively reduce the speed of water flow and save domestic water. According to relevant tests, the water output of the faucet with foaming device is 4.6 liters per minute, which can achieve the first-class water effect, and the water-saving effect is 35% 85%. An ordinary foamer is about 10 yuan, which can be used normally for 5 years and saves at least 10 tons of water every year. Netizens who want to save water but do not want to spend money on re-buying water-saving faucets can consider buying a foamer.
How to choose that water-saving faucet, in fact, like the general faucet, in addition to stainless steel, copper, plastic and other materials in the material, the water-saving faucet can also be divided into facial washer faucet, kitchen faucet and ordinary washing faucet according to its use. according to the opening and closing mode can be divided into single-handle faucet, double-handle faucet, foot faucet, induction faucet and delay automatic closing faucet. Water-saving faucet can not only save water, but also has a convenient function. In fact, when we use ordinary faucets, in some specific cases, it is more troublesome to use, and there are many water-saving faucets in the use of more convenient considerations, it can not only rotate, but also can pull. If we want to add some water to the bowl in the kitchen cabinet, we can just pull out the faucet and pull it back after adding water.
The price gap between the water-saving faucet and the ordinary faucet is not big, the price of the water-saving faucet on the market is between 150ml 400 yuan, and the price of the general faucet product is not much. Take a look at the price of water-saving faucets on e-commerce. The stainless steel water-saving faucets used in general kitchens are mainly about 200 yuan, while stainless steel faucets are generally about 100 yuan.
At present, there are more than 1500 manufacturers producing faucets in China, and there are more than 150 manufacturers that can produce water-saving faucets. How can we buy real water-saving faucets? This question has also been answered by experts early, mainly looking at two aspects: first, check the water-saving certification on the faucet or faucet packaging, this certification can ensure water-saving performance (strength, sealing and service life), and second, check the relevant certification marks. You can check the relevant "water efficiency test report". For ordinary people, it is more convenient to check the water-saving certification on the faucet or faucet packaging, so it also returns to the question of whether the above-mentioned water-saving faucet has a unified national standard, and if you recognize the certification on the packaging, you can boldly buy it.
Saving water is really a major event for the family. After switching to a water-saving faucet, you will really be surprised by the cost of clean water and electricity at the end of the year, save a lot of money, but also save water resources, and the cost of retrofitting is not high, so why not do it?
