Among the shortcomings of the devices can be noted the high prices, the difficult repair of structures. However, in more detail the disadvantages of specific models will be described below.
Many line models differ in functionality. For example, the height of the spout is regulated by raising and lowering the lever nose. In addition, if there is a need for a reserve of water, you need to dial it in a tank, then the tap can be raised. When washing hands, the level of the tap can be lowered to the lowest possible position. Let us consider in more detail the popular types of mixers of the German manufacturer.

Since the products of the manufacturer belong to the class of expensive, their installation is better to entrust experienced professionals. Due to improper installation made by own hands, deformation occurs most often, as well as rapid breakage of products.
Particular attention should be paid to the installation of hidden products. These models are specially equipped with modern kits from the manufacturer iBox universal. The system was first introduced to the market in 2001.
This is the only universal product, under which you can pick up any external parts. The product is a standard for other manufacturers. Universal panel has a variety of functions.
For the Axor collection, the manufacturer delivers the hidden parts of the Shower Collection specifically.
Since the component parts of the products are individual, it is difficult to find certain types of spare parts on the market. Also at installation of products it is necessary to consider that cartridges of mixers are not subject to repair. These components at the price of the road are comparable to the cost of new mixers.
The internal device of products differs depending on the installed type. Therefore, even with a repair kit on hand, it is worthwhile to pay more attention to the study of the mixer of the desired type. Careful examination of the device will help in determining the causes of breakdowns.
For example, they are due to:
- unsatisfactory quality;
- use of components of unsuitable sample;
- dirty water in the pipes;
- high iron content in water.
Consider the best installation methods, for example, external devices will be optimal in most cases.
Hidden options are attractive, but usually more expensive. Hidden systems are convenient for small spaces.
If this type of installation is planned, it is worthwhile to foresee the finishing, under which it will be possible to remove all the unattractive parts of sanitary devices. Despite all the difficulties associated with installation, the products of this brand a huge number of fans.
Consumer reviews on Hansgrohe products are mostly positive. This indicates the reliability and durability of the devices. Correctly mounted systems of the German manufacturer have really worked without failures for decades.
Cases of warranty repairs are rare, and the manufacturer’s warranty period is long - from 3 to 5 years, depending on the complexity of the devices. Often, users note simple installation, as well as the ability to disassemble and repair devices. Repair of some types of products is really simple thanks to the versatility of the devices.
At the same time, some spare parts for road instruments, and individual spare parts parts wear out quickly. Disassemble the installed product will have to because of poor quality water.
Therefore, commenting on the negative reviews of the devices, experts often advise installing water purification filters directly at the system inlet.
This action contributes to the prolongation of the service life of such parts of mixers as nozzles, aerators, glands, etc. Fast repair is also unavailable due to the lack of proprietary components. They have to be ordered in production and long enough to wait.
We present a rating of mixers of the German manufacturer regarding the positive qualities described by consumers.
The devices of the Focus range are rated positively thanks to:
- good equipment;
- excellent aerator;
- high-quality cartridge;
- smooth rotation of the lever 360 degrees.
Among the disadvantages is the need to purchase adapters, as well as short underwater hoses that are not supplied. In this case, the supplied eyeliner can not be disconnected from the device.
The Ecostat model is marked by such advantages as:
- interesting appearance;
Among the shortcomings there is not very smooth operation of the built-in thermostat.
Talis models are marked by users as beautiful and comfortable. Among the shortcomings - the marzime products. Some users note the noise of the cartridge installed inside the mixer.
Products of the German brand are often advised to select sellers of stores. However, it is not necessary to fully base your choice on the opinion of consultants, as this is not the most effective way.
Professionals advise to evaluate the appearance of products. For example, on the surface of the device should not be visible scratches and other defects. The color of the coating should be uniform.
If a significant indicator when choosing - the properties of steel, choose products harder.
If the product includes moving parts, their course should be smooth and quiet. If the parts move with effort, this is a sign of poor quality of the component parts of the product.
Check the aerator in the mixer. The German brand does not save on this part, it is metal. If a plastic aerator or a thin brass inside the product, in front of you, rather, just a fake.
Still carefully assess the condition of the flexible connection. The German manufacturer supplies it with its devices.
The internal thread of the hoses must be metallic. If it is plastic, then you also have a fake.
When choosing it is worth considering that the type of construction (lever, valve on photocells) has little effect on the economy of consumption, if the devices do not have special functions, for example, a special type of cartridges. However, when choosing a device, it should be borne in mind that the more functions it has, the higher the probability of failure of parts.
