BEAUTIFUL AND FUNCTIONAL, OVER TIME

MAINTAIN PRODUCT QUALITY

The constant search for optimal solutions in terms of function and aesthetics means that our products are made with different materials and finishes: using and caring for them correctly is therefore essential to preserve their quality over time and ensure a long life cycle for all components.

CLEANING CHROME-PLATED SURFACES

The most common galvanic finish is chrome-plating: it guarantees bright and shiny surfaces, which are also highly resistant over time. It is recommended that the tap be constantly rinsed and dried to avoid aesthetically unpleasant limescale deposits. If limescale is found on the surface of the product, it can be dissolved using diluted vinegar (maximum concentration 10% at 20 °C) and then rinsed with plenty of clean water.

Correct procedure

  • use only neutral pH detergents and avoid spraying them directly onto the product surface
  • using a soft cloth, make gentle circular movements to clean, polish and finally dry the surface of the product

Avoid

  • sanitising products such as bleach, ethylene oxides, chlorides and non-ionic surfactants
  • detergents based on chloric, hydrofluoric, phosphoric and muriatic acids
  • scouring pads and wire brushes, abrasive or powder detergents
CLEANING PAINTED SURFACES

Compared to chrome-plating, painted surfaces are more delicate and generally more susceptible to scratches and knocks, which is why they must be treated with greater care. It is recommended that the tap be constantly rinsed and dried to avoid aesthetically unpleasant limescale deposits. If limescale is found on the surface of the product, it can be dissolved using diluted vinegar (maximum concentration 10% at 20 °C) and then rinsed with plenty of clean water.

Correct procedure

  • use only neutral pH detergents and avoid spraying them directly onto the product surface
  • using a soft cloth, make gentle circular movements to clean, polish and finally dry the surface of the product

Avoid

  • sanitising products such as bleach, ethylene oxides, chlorides and non-ionic surfactants
  • detergents based on chloric, hydrofluoric, phosphoric and muriatic acids
  • scouring pads and wire brushes, abrasive or powder detergents
CLEANING PVD SURFACES

The PVD treatment provides a surface of the highest quality in terms of both aesthetics and resistance to abrasion and scratches. PVD is the acronym of Physical Vapour Deposition, a process that takes place in a pressurised chamber by means of metal vapour deposition, resulting in a variety of colour shades with very high physical and mechanical resistance. These PVD surfaces can be cleaned simply with a cloth dampened with neutral pH detergent. If limescale is found on the surface of the product, it can be dissolved using diluted vinegar (maximum concentration 10% at 20 °C) and then rinsed with plenty of clean water.

Correct procedure

  • use only neutral pH detergents and avoid spraying them directly onto the product surface
  • using a soft cloth, make gentle circular movements to clean, polish and finally dry the surface of the product

Avoid

  • sanitising products such as bleach, ethylene oxides, chlorides and non-ionic surfactants
  • detergents based on chloric, hydrofluoric, phosphoric and muriatic acids
  • scouring pads and wire brushes, abrasive or powder detergents
CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF THE AERATOR

Especially in geographical areas where the water is particularly “hard”, solid substances or residues in the water can settle inside the aerator, altering its flow and causing the tap to malfunction. For this reason, constant and thorough cleaning of the aerator is recommended to ensure maximum effectiveness over time.

NEOPERL® CASCADE® SLC® AERATOR

Nobili products use the highest quality aerators, each with different characteristics: Neoperl® Cascade® SLC® (Smart Lime Cleaning) aerators, with their soft elastomer surface, allow you to remove limescale deposits (for a perfect spray and maximum protection against limescale) simply by passing your finger over the surface, without the need to remove it from its housing.

NEOPERL® CASCADE® AERATOR

If the mixer is fitted with a Neoperl® Cascade® aerator with a housing, simply follow these simple steps for perfect cleaning:

  • turn the outer reducer gently, preferably using a tool that does not damage the surface finish of the product. Once loosened, it is advisable to continue unscrewing it manually (if this proves particularly difficult, there is probably a limescale deposit: in this case, it is necessary to apply more force, always taking care not to damage the aerator or the tap)
  • rinse the aerator under running water, removing any accumulated residues (in the case of particularly stubborn residues, soak the aerator in diluted vinegar - maximum concentration 10% at 20 °C - for a few hours, then rinse with plenty of clean water)
  • reposition the aerator inside the reducer, making sure that the seals are fitted correctly, and then screw the component back onto the tap
NEOPERL® CACHÉ® COIN SLOT AERATOR

The Neoperl® Caché® Coin Slot model is a threaded aerator with a special coin slot for easy removal and fixing. For perfect cleaning, just follow these simple steps:

  • insert a coin into the aerator slot
  • extract the aerator by gently turning it anticlockwise Once loosened, it is advisable to continue unscrewing by hand (if this proves particularly difficult, there is probably a limescale deposit: in this case, it is necessary to apply more force, always taking care not to damage the aerator or the tap)
  • rinse the aerator under running water, removing any accumulated residues (in the case of particularly stubborn residues, soak the aerator in diluted vinegar - maximum concentration 10% at 20 °C - for a few hours, then rinse with plenty of clean water)
  • reposition the aerator, making sure that the seals are fitted correctly
RECTANGULAR NEOPERL® AERATOR

The rectangular Neoperl® aerator provides a highly spectacular and comforting cascade jet. For perfect cleaning, just follow these simple steps:

  • unscrew the screw at the back of the tap mouth using a suitable Allen key
  • insert the service key (found inside the product packaging) into the aerator (the key must click into place to be considered correctly attached: to allow the key to enter more easily, press the aerator slightly inwards)
  • remove the aerator by pulling the key outwards while holding it at the same time diagonally, then continue by pulling the key downwards, still in an inclined position
  • rinse the aerator under running water, removing any accumulated residues (in the case of particularly stubborn residues, soak the aerator in diluted vinegar - maximum concentration 10% at 20 °C - for a few hours, then rinse with plenty of clean water)

To refit the aerator, simply follow these simple steps:

  • insert the aerator into the tap, taking care to position it correctly (to avoid installing it backwards, rotated by 180°, simply make sure to align the headless screw on the back of the tap with the hole in the aerator)
  • secure the aerator with the screw using a suitable Allen key
  • make sure that the o-ring is not damaged or moved during installation (an incorrect position may cause water to leak)
