With CCTV to tap product quality problem of exposure, caused widespread concern in the sanitary industry, businesses and consumers as a whole.
In fact, taps such a high sampling rate is not accidental. As early as at the beginning of the month, Shanghai Municipal Bureau of quality and technical supervision of the production and marketing of special faucets products quality supervision and inspection. The spot check products, 74, of which 26 batches of substandard, a failure rate as high as 35%. Lead program failed to achieve 5 batches, quality is a serious problem, furthermore 20 batches of the product pipe thread precision is not qualified, 14 batches of salt spray test failed, 3 batches of product flow failed, 3 batches of products handles torque is not qualified and 2 batches of unqualified product installation length.
Testing standard is based on the national standards, which belongs to the most basic standards, check results show that many well-known brands have also been found not qualified products. In recent years, so many products even the basic standards of the State have not met, what is the standard too high? or is the enterprise's own questions?
Reporter recently asked in an interview with the tap water quality problems so great. Huayi sanitary head expressed, at present water quality problems does not lie in state high, on the contrary, national and industry standards are not high, but the problem of production enterprises. The uneven quality of copper on the market today, the price difference is very big, tap failed mainly reflected on lead content. Second coating quality, including coating thickness and surface finish, the production-related. If polishing is not enough surface sand hole, consumer use after a period of time the coating easy foam fall off, causing rust affecting water quality. Some businesses in order to save on production costs, galvanised coating does not meet requirements, use the rust off in the process. Is again the pipe thread precision does not meet requirements, faucet loose leaking.
In recent years, the tap product failure rate has been high. Some enterprises in the fierce market competition in order to make a profit, even shoddy, in the selection of raw materials often choose some cheap copper, and some enterprises in order to expand production capacity, relax checks in the production process, the polishing and plating that taps the unqualified phenomenon often occurs.
In order to cope with the adverse effects of the nonconforming product, in recent times, many brands have also taken a number of measures to address consumer concerns. Recent European sanitary issued a statement, saying its product by the national irrigation and drainage and water-saving equipment products quality supervision and inspection Center for evaluation, taps, hot and cold water pipe thread precision marking, seal and body strength test projects are in line with national standards.
Some people in the industry fear that, because of television, the Internet and other media exposed to the water quality problems, coupled with consumer awareness of plumbing products gradually increased, sanitary product safety, environmental consciousness, quality domestic brands will be a certain impact.
