Recently, some media reported that many famous brands of copper faucets contain lead, and lead precipitation exceeds national standards. For a time, the lead precipitation of the faucet has become the focus of attention.
Why is the faucet exceeding the lead? "The main raw material for faucets is copper, but the cost of copper is relatively high. Therefore, some manufacturers use inferior recycled copper to reduce the cost and may contain impurities, so the lead content may be high. Some, does not rule out some manufacturers shoddy." Zhejiang Jiaxing Inspection and Quarantine Bureau inspection staff said. At present, some international brands adopt the model of OEM production, the quality is not easy to control, and some big brands even have the phenomenon of knock-off goods, especially the taps of online shopping, it is more difficult to ensure quality.
The lead content of the control faucet is not exceeded. First, the material of the product is better, followed by the advanced lead-washing process, and the third is the environmentally-friendly lead-free plating process. After these processes, the cost of a faucet will increase dramatically.
The Jiaxing Inspection and Quarantine Bureau hereby gives the consumers a few tricks:
Try to let go of the overnight water
Since the faucet itself will accumulate a certain amount of water, it will absorb heavy metals for a long time. Generally, before using the faucet the next day, the water accumulated in the faucet should be drained before use.
Look carefully before buying
When purchasing a faucet, you should carefully check the plating quality of the faucet. If the plating is as bright as a mirror, press it on the surface and the traces of the hand will disappear quickly. In addition, consumers should ask the salesperson for the test report and brand of the product. Logo and after-sales service card, if the test report determines that the product is qualified, you can use it with confidence.
