Sanitary systems is much more than simple water faucets, and high-tech products, keeping up with the times. So the problem of modern PEX fittings include not only the opening and closing of the water jet. Water should be “run” evenly and maintain temperature control, adjustment should be made a slight movement of hands, but, nevertheless, be sensitive! Reinforcement should be as long as possible, while retaining its original beautiful appearance – and also, as long as possible.
So how fitting can simultaneously perform so many functions?
Durability of PEX fittings is ensured by the use of high-quality materials and advanced processing. Chassis reinforcement consists of a cast framework, on which several passages inflicted Plating, thus providing protection against wear and ennobling product appearance. On many products coming from the East Asian region, in order to save using a cheap metal castings with high lead content, which later affects the quality of water. For the same branded products are used instead a solid brass or stainless steel, which provide long term water quality, as well as mechanical stability.
When covering sanitary fittings should take into account that, for example, chromium from the optical point of view is the perfect option, but after years of use or improper maintenance (cleaning abrasive cleaners or sharp objects) may have scratches or even flaky. Cheap products can even begin to rust, which is absolutely impossible when using cranes and brand products.
For long-term reliability and serviceability sanitary fittings responsible used valve technology. In the high-quality sanitary fittings used ceramic discs that dispense entirely without rubber seals. Due to this, inserts and cartridges are very long service life, because control valve is to the touch, like clockwork, providing the perfect functioning for many years.
Thanks to modern plumbing fixture can even save water: Usually in the shower and bathroom, do not need large amounts of water flow, and special control devices and aerators significantly reduce water consumption. If we take into account also the possible cost of repairs and confidence in the reliability, it is often expensive branded products are much cheaper than the seemingly more profitable buying inexpensive faucets – to the often inadequate facilities, the maintenance of “special offers” or even cheap goods are not worth speak. Therefore, it makes great sense to consider more closely the new fixtures for the bath or shower, and not just “be” the first “supervygodnoe” proposal on the construction market, so you do not hold permanent repairs of plumbing.
