No matter how ingenious the appearance design of a shower shower, how diverse the function development, if the lack of the cartridge this component, even the basic water function can not be realized, visible the importance of the cartridge.
Therefore, the purchase of shower shower must not ignore the configuration of durable, high-quality cartridge. So, what kind of material should the cartridge choose?
1. cartridge material
At present, the common cartridge on the market is mainly ceramic cartridge, stainless steel cartridge and copper cartridge.
1. Ceramic cartridge
The industry uses many, cost-effective cartridge. Most bathroom brands are equipped with ceramic cartridge.
Why is ceramic cartridge so popular? Advantages are wear-resistant, high tensile degree, not easy to deformation, long service life. Due to the characteristics of the material, not easy to be corroded, small water pollution, water safety is guaranteed. Good sealing performance, not easy to appear dripping water leakage. Compared with other metal cartridge, the weight is lighter, easy to install, low cost.
However, ceramic cartridge also has shortcomings, higher requirements for water quality, water with more impurities will affect its service life. Common city water, using ceramic cartridge no problem.
2. Stainless steel cartridge
The appearance of stainless steel cartridge is later than that of ceramic cartridge, which belongs to a new generation of cartridge materials and makes up for the disadvantage of ceramic cartridge.
Stainless steel cartridge has high compatibility with water quality, it is not easy to be affected by impurities in water and shorten the service life, and stainless steel cartridge can be disintegrated and cleaned, especially suitable for areas with poor water quality.
Good stainless steel cartridge by one pouring, high technical requirements, the corresponding price is more expensive, for ordinary families as cost-effective as ceramic cartridge.
3. Copper cartridge
The shower using copper cartridge on the market is less, mainly for cost control and cartridge performance itself. Copper cartridge has good texture, but it is easy to produce copper rust after a long time, and there are water health risks. In opening and closing fluidity and service life than ceramic cartridge and stainless steel cartridge.
To sum up, the shower shower is commonly used, cost-effective is the ceramic cartridge.
