What are the LED nozzles on the crane?
If you want to get not only a useful, but also an interesting accessory that can help you decorate the bathroom or kitchen space, then you can use the LED tap nozzle. This is a simple installation that can highlight water in various shades.
Nozzles can be called decorative elements, which recently began to appear on sale. Basically, they are purchased as a souvenir or with other interesting items in Chinese stores on the Internet. The release of such products are not engaged in famous brands, but more often than not known to small companies.
But provided that the nozzle is properly used, it can still perform useful functions. Due to some features, the LED, which is inside this small part, is able to change the shade of the supplied water pressure, depending on the temperature indicator.
In order to make it easier to navigate, we give below the ratio of temperature and color indicators of the nozzle:
- at temperatures up to 32 degrees the water color is blue;
- when the temperature rises from 33 to 40 degrees, the color changes to green;
- from 41 to 45 degrees - red;
- from 45 degrees or more, the backlight remains red, but it starts to flash.
We draw your attention to the fact that the color change scheme is the most common, but there are other options for sale.
In order to avoid an unpleasant situation, the recommendations in the instructions remind you that before using the nozzle you need to test several times in all modes. In this way, you will not only find out which color corresponds to temperature indicators, but also be able to choose for yourself the optimum water temperature.

You can buy LED nozzles in several versions:
- for crane;

If the value of the border, for example, the water is not cold, but still not warm enough, then the nozzle starts to flash and green and blue.
Installation of such a nozzle is simple and takes only a few minutes. The installation process is simplified due to the fact that all modern mixers have a removable filter nozzle, due to the removal of which the nozzle is installed with a backlight.
