Installation and reviews
Judging by the opinions of buyers of sanitary equipment Esko, it can work properly for a long time, as promised by the manufacturer, however, provided that the installation of these mixers will be carried out by an experienced technician. He will assemble and assemble without the mistakes that “jack of all trades” often make, confident that they can take on any task. However, in practice it turns out that such craftsmen make mistakes that can quickly destroy even constructively perfect mixers. For example, a few months after self-installation may appear in the hose. It can be caused by the destruction of a plastic part located in one of the joints.
It is not surprising that feedback from people who chose to assemble and install Esko mixers on their own, contains a number of complaints about the quality of this product. For example, comments are made about the fact that the valve that regulates the pressure of hot water, can scroll longer than the valve to supply cold water. However, after disassembling this unit and re-installing it, but already according to the factory regulations, this problem was fixed. Three months after self-installation, a problem may arise leading to water running off the hose when the valve is turned off.
To fix this problem, you have to attract plumbing and pay him for repairs, which causes understandable dissatisfaction with the high price of the mixer.
Comments are made about how water is consumed in the kitchen after installing the Esko mixer. Attempting to make the pressure as weak as possible does not lead to the desired result, since the regulating lever simply spontaneously sinks into the locking position and stops the flow of water. As a result, the lever has to be raised much higher, which allows it to be fixed, but the water flows in this way with a rapid flow, which is not necessarily necessary in a particular working situation. It is possible that with time this inaccuracy of adjustment will disappear by itself. Nevertheless, this feature of operation must be taken into account by those who want to waste water economically from the very first days after the purchase of a new crane, since, most likely, Esko was created with the expectation of less efficient users.
Accordingly, a person who wants to purchase a mixer must, precisely decide which characteristics are most important for him, as well as soberly assess their material capabilities. Judging by the reviews The Esko crane is definitely not suitable for fans to ensure that the water jet is no wider than, for example, the cord for charging a mobile phone. On the contrary, it is designed to obtain a rapid flow, allowing you to wash the dishes quickly and efficiently. This is exactly how affluent customers act, for which, judging by the cost of Esko products, it was developed. For such people, time is money, and it is quite large, and therefore they prefer to raise the adjustment lever to almost all possible height.
With all the differences of opinion about the functionality of the models of this brand, the reviews about them agree on one thing: the Esko mixers look amazing. They glitter pleasantly and reflect surrounding objects in their surface. Their design is made at the highest level, so these faucets can become a real decoration for the kitchen and the bathroom. They will successfully complement the expensive atmosphere and become the dominant visual in a modest interior. Like all brilliant things, these mixers will raise the spirits of their masters, which will turn the washing of dishes from routine necessity into a real celebration.
