faucet hose joint selection
The hose is made of rubber inside, stainless steel wire or aluminum wire on the outside, and copper joints are used. Consumers can feel the quality of the hose from some appearances, such as squeezing it with their hands to feel whether the hose’s threads are neat and rough, and the grids are arranged in a disorderly manner; if the joints are black or black , Indicating that the chromium plating process is not well done; the number of connecting threads should not be less than 3 teeth (too short, it is easy to leak, and even cause the nut connection to break), and there should be no broken teeth, dents and other defects on the surface; Some hoses use poor rubber and even smell. However, the current hoses are sold together with faucet products, and the hoses of good faucet manufacturers are divided into hot water pipes and cold water pipes, which are marked in red and blue. It is recommended to buy products with separate hot and cold water.

Please pay attention to the length when purchasing the hose. The length of the hose is divided into 200mm, 300mm, and 500mm. If the hose is too long, the worker will bend it during installation; if the hose is too short, the worker will tighten a few buckles during installation, resulting in fewer threads for the nut connection. For a long time, these two conditions will cause the tube to burst. Therefore, it is recommended that consumers first measure the distance from the faucet to the angle valve before purchasing, and then choose the appropriate length of hose according to their needs.
