According to industry standards, a faucet uses about 500 grams of copper, so that the cost of a faucet copper alone is about 30 yuan. If you count other auxiliary raw materials such as zinc alloy (24,000 yuan / ton or so), plus other components, labor, processing fees, freight, agency fees, utilities, etc., a normal copper taps, direct manufacturing costs will not be less than 100 yuan.

Production Mode: the production mode of these faucet manufacturers is mostly a family workshop, with the first floor responsible for producing original parts and polishing, and the second floor for assembly. The production model of this area is mostly “self-produced part of the original, other to assemble other family’s main”.

I Want To Give You A Reminder Today ↓↓↓↓
Overnight water from the tap the next morning is best not used directly for washing or boiling! Instead, turn the faucet on and drain the water for 1 to 3 minutes before using it normally. The overnight water can be collected to rinse the toilet, wash the mop, water the flowers, etc.
Reason 1: Overnight Faucet Water May Harbor Legionella Bacteria, Which Can Cause Pneumonia.
Recent studies have confirmed that Legionella bacteria can be isolated from water samples in lakes, restaurants, hospitals, and water pipes in homes, and that overnight water from faucets is most likely to harbour Legionella bacteria. Once infected, a person is at high risk of developing Legionnaires’ pneumonia.
Legionnaires’ pneumonia is an infectious disease caused by Legionella pneumophila, which mainly manifests as pneumonia and may be combined with damage to other systems outside the lung. The number of cases of Legionnaires’ pneumonia is increasing in China and has become a common concern. Legionnaires’ pneumonia is the most serious form of atypical pneumonia, with a mortality rate of 45% without effective treatment.
Reason 2: Prolonged Consumption Of Overnight Water From Water Mains May Cause Lead Poisoning.
The tap water from overnight faucets and water pipes is still, and this water and metal pipe walls and faucet metal chambers will produce a hydration reaction, the formation of metal contaminated water, and tap water residual microorganisms will also multiply up, this water contains a large number of harmful substances to the human body. If you use an inferior faucet, “overnight water” in the lead content will also seriously exceed the standard. Experts reminded that the pipe network from the water meter to the faucet, that is, the section of the water pipe after the water meter is paid for by the users themselves, to choose the right materials.
