The faucet determines the quality
When purchasing, in addition to price, most customers only pay attention to the shape of the shower head, and choose whichever they think is beautiful. In fact, it is the humble faucet under the shower system that needs to be carefully selected. "It directly determines the quality and service life of the shower system."

How to know the quality of the faucet? According to Wang Qi, when choosing a faucet, you must first switch the handle several times to see if the handle is delicate and tight. Too loose or too tight is not good. The brightness of the faucet surface is also one of the highlights. The better the surface is handled, the better the craftsmanship it is. The faucet with smooth and bright surface shows its’ quality indirectly. In addition to looking at these, you must also look for trachoma or cracks in the joints of the faucet. Trachoma is the small holes and cracks that appear on the surface and interior of copper materials in the casting process. If there is trachoma, water will seep after water is passed through, and cracking will occur in severe cases. In fact, the valve core of the faucet is an important part, but it cannot be seen by the naked eye. The data shows that the qualified valve core can be turned on/off over 500,000 times, and the defective product cannot reach this strength and is prone to water leakage.
Considering Shower Column Height
The ceiling height of the bathroom and your height determine the height of the shower system. Under normal circumstances, the distance between the faucet is 70-80 cm on the ground, the height of the shower column is 1.1 meters, the length of the joint between the faucet and the shower column is 10-20 cm, and the height of the shower system from the ground is 2.1-2.2 meters. Customers should fully consider the bathroom space when purchasing. When purchasing a shower system, you need to consider whether the height of the shower column is suitable for the height of the ceiling. Generally speaking, shower column connected by the turnbuckle cannot be cut, and the height connected by the gasket can be cut. However, if you need to adjust the height, first admit to the salesman whether it is possible. There are also shower columns on the market that can adjust the height, which makes it easy to adjust the height of the shower system according to your own height.

Now there are two kinds of shower system materials on the market: metal and silicone. Metal shower systems are diverse and beautiful, but silicone shower systems are more convenient to clean, because in the case of mild obstruction, it can be kneaded, or a needle can be used to dredge the silicone water. hole. In addition, if you look closely, you can also see that some shower systems have exposed water outlets, which makes cleaning easier.
The size of the water outlet and the direction of rotation of the shower system determine whether the water is misted or concentrated. There is not much difference between the two. The first thing is to choose according to your preferences. For the handheld shower system next to it, most round shower systems can adjust the water flow, but the "microphone" shower system cannot adjust the water flow. Nonetheless, if you like to sing with a handheld mic in the shower, you might as well buy a "mic-style" for a sense of it.
