Tips for product cleaning and maintenance
COLOUR FINISHED FAUCETS
NOT TO DO
Do not use detergents based on acid and highly corrosive substances (e.g. acetic acid, sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite, phosphoric acid, saline acid, etc..). Avoid abrasive sponges or rough metal straws, microfibre cloths which could irreparably damage the surface.
CLEANING THE AERATOR
The aerator on the faucet can be removed to facilitate cleaning operations.
Gently remove the aerator, using your hands or the provided wrench depending on the model.
If the aerator presents too much resistance, use a wrench of the correct size, if necessary cushion your grip with a rag to avoid scratching the taps.
It is advisable to immerse the aerator (or only the filter in the case of aerators with a cap) in diluted white vinegar or citric acid solution: limescale deposits will dissolve within a few minutes.
If the aerator model is equipped with silicone teats, it will be sufficient to tilt them, rubbing them gently with a finger, until any limescale blockages are released.
MAINTENANCE OF SHOWERHEADS AND HAND SHOWERS
To clean the hand showers and shower heads, refer to the instructions provided for cleaning chrome or finished faucets, depending on the product you purchased.
Pay constant attention to cleaning the outlet jets to prevent them from being blocked by limescale: in addition to reducing performance, blocked jets do not allow the water to flow out, generating an internal pressure which can deform the product until it breaks.
SHOWERHEADS AND HAND SHOWERS WITH SILICONE TEATS
To clean the silicone teats, simply tilt them, rubbing them gently with a finger, until they are free from any limescale blockages.
It is recommended to always purge the pipes before installing the taps and to make sure that the products for washing tiles and coverings do not come into contact with the taps during site cleaning.

- Incorrect use of the mixer or faucet.

- Lack or inadequacy of maintenance.
