The faucet is an indispensable existence in the home, and it facilitates our daily life. So, what is the structure of the faucet? What are the handles of the faucet?
What are the handles of the faucet?
The control handle is divided into a single handle and a double handle.
Usually, the single handle is generally popular, which is characterized by convenient control and simple structure, while the double handle requires both hands to adjust the water temperature, but the style can be suitable for more occasions (For example, under the counter basin faucet, the tub side faucet of the Jacuzzi, etc.).
When the single-handle faucet is turned on and off, the water pressure will rise rapidly. If the copper content of the product is not high, it will be easily damaged if it cannot withstand the expansion of the water pressure. Therefore, the single-handle faucet should be used slowly. Open and close; the double handle faucet has a large pressure resistance range, and the water pressure is controlled by the corresponding adjustment of the two handles, so this problem is unlikely to occur.
For sanitary ware products of different brands, choose the faucet that is suitable for the style.
There are various installation positions for the faucet of the basin: a single-handle faucet with one hole; three holes, the most common interval is 4 inches (commonly said 4-inch cups), and some are spaced 8 inches apart, which can be installed with single-handle faucets or double-handle faucets (commonly known as 8-inch cups), which are also called separate three-hole faucets abroad.
Adapting to the installation of faucets, with the popularity of “minimalism”, wall-mounted three-hole faucets and tall faucets (also called high throw faucets) have appeared. But in any case, when buying a faucet, it is best to first determine the brand and style of sanitary ware, and then decide on the configuration of the faucet.
According to different designs, basin faucets are divided into on-counter and under-counter, kitchen faucets have single-hole straight installation and wall-mounted installation, shower faucets have hose plus shower and wall-mounted shower, and special functions There are also thermostatic faucets, delay faucets, induction faucets, faucets with filtering water devices and faucets with pull-out hoses, etc., which will actually be determined according to your own needs and budget.
What is the structure of the faucet?
The faucet is composed of the main body, the valve core, the handle, the water filter, the water outlet, and the installation components. Some faucets also have Check Valve, Aerator, fixing bolts, fixing copper sheets, gaskets, bent feet, hoses, general gauges, stop gauges, etc. Different faucets will be slightly different.
The heart of the faucet is the Ceramic Disc Cartridge. The valve core is the heart of the faucet, which controls the water flow switch, the flow rate, and the mixing ratio of hot and cold water. The quality of the valve core determines the functional reliability and service life of the faucet.
The valve core of the faucet is divided into rubber valve core, shaft-rolling valve core, ceramic valve core, and stainless steel ball valve core according to the material.

The valve core of the faucet is divided into rubber valve core, shaft-rolling valve core, ceramic valve core, and stainless steel ball valve core according to the material.
The faucets using rubber cores are mostly cast iron faucets with screw opening, which have now been basically eliminated; ceramic valve cores are a new generation of valve core materials, with good sealing performance, stable physical properties, and long service life. Generally, it is required to open and close 300,000. more than 30 times a day, calculated by opening and closing 30 times a day, it can be guaranteed for more than 20 years without dripping. Now, basically, all the faucets on the market are ceramic valve core faucets.
