Changing the faucet isn’t exactly something that people look forward to, especially if the reason why you’re changing it is that the old one broke. But when you are willing to invest in a quality kitchen or bathroom faucet, there are brand that will surprise with very interesting design and features. One such example is Brizo, a brand that we really want to talk to you about because their products are constructed with quality and durable materials, and they’ve clearly invested a lot in design as well.
What to Look for in a Brizo Faucet
Before you go out and buy just any random faucet, you need to know a little bit about what Brizo has to offer and what are the features of their products that you mostly need to pay attention to.
The size of the faucet that you want to buy is the first thing that you have to pay attention to. The specifications that you want to look for are the height of the sprout and the reach amount. These features are particularly important for kitchen spouts because you will need plenty of space when you wash dishes. Thankfully, the Brizo line has developed very distinct faucets for kitchen compared to those that are clearly meant for bathroom use.
The flow rate is another important factor to look into. It is not uncommon to find kitchen faucets with a higher flow rate compared to ones that are designed for bathroom sinks, since you might need the kitchen sink to quickly fill a pot with water, for example. However, some of the faucets with the highest flow rate are those designed for bathtubs because you want to fill a large container with water as fast as possible, which makes it only normal for the faucet to be able to do that.
The durability of the product also plays a huge part in the buying process and it is a feature that plenty of people are interested in because nobody wants to replace their faucets every year because their current ones broke. The thing with Brizo faucets is that they may cost more, but the design and quality of materials used can justify the end price. They mostly use stainless steel in the manufacturing process of their products, which makes them very reliable from a durability point of view.
The way in which you operate a faucet can also determine what type of model is best suited for you. For instance, single-handle faucets are better for kitchen use while bathroom ones will most likely have two faucets. The brand is also known for implementing newer technology into its products, like faucets that can be operated with a single touch of the finger. Some models integrate infrared technology so that they can be used even without having to touch them. Having your hand in the proximity of the faucet or in a specific area should be enough to get the water flowing.
The warranty coverage is pretty important when it comes to just about every product that you buy. With Brizo, you have some of the best warranties in the industry. That’s because they offer residential lifetime warranty because they stand by the quality of their products.
We wanted to talk about some of the concepts that you are going to come across when you look into certain Brizo faucets. Explaining these concepts will help you get a better grasp of what these products have to offer.
- MagneDock Technology refers to the faucet’s ability to prevent drooping and makes sure that the faucet stays in place. Products that don’t have this technology will cause you to experience spray heads that aren’t docket to the spout.
- 360° Swivel Spout means that the Brizo faucet you’re looking at can swivel at a 360 degrees angle, helping you rotate the faucet and getting out of the way for when you need more sink space.
- Brizo SmartTouch is a concept that describes the faucet’s ability to work with simples touches. Specifically, the faucet is smart enough to identify taps and gesture so it knows when to turn the faucet on and off, for example.
- Diamond Seal Technology means that Brizo uses diamond-embedded and ceramic discs to prevent the control valves from wearing out and causing leaks, which is a common problem with low and average-quality faucets. This adds more durability to their products.
- Dual Join Articulating Arm is another one of Brizo’s technologies which is used to give you greater control over the spray head because it comes with two pivot points.
