Handle: The composite faucet is simple to use, because when using the sink, usually only one hand is empty.

Water outlet: The water outlet placed at a high place makes it easy to fill the washbasin.

Spool: This is the heart of the faucet. The hot and cold water faucets are all made of ceramic valve core. The best quality of the valve core is the Spanish track, Taiwan’s Kangqin and Zhuhai.

The shower head can be extended: the effective radius is increased, and the sink and the container can be filled faster.

Hose: Experience has shown that a 50 cm long tube is sufficient, and a tube of 70 cm or more can be purchased on the market.

The connecting nut is red forging and the outer surface is rolled and plated with a 4miu (thickness) nickel layer.
