Hardness does not refer to how solid the material is but how this particular material can withstand scratches from other kinds of material. You have to do washing in your sink and you are most likely to scratch the faucet with kitchen utensils very often, so if the finish of your faucet cannot withstand scratches, you would most probably end up with one ugly looking faucet after a short while. Studies have shown that the brushed finished kitchen faucet is considered one of the hardest in the market.
Today's faucets are commonly made from brass with various finishing such as gold plating and powder-coated enamel. However, brass contains lead which can cause lead poisoning that will eventually lead to many serious health problems. Due to this, all faucet manufacturers in the U.S. are not allowed to include more than 8 percent of this substance in their brass faucets, according to the Safe Drinking Water Act. If you are concerned about your health, you might want to look into other alternative such as ceramic faucets since ceramic does not contain dangerous chemicals that might harm our body.
There are generally two types of kitchen faucets in use today. Single-handle faucets are centersets where hot and cold are controlled by one lever or knob that's often part of the spout. The most common type of kitchen faucet is the widespread kitchen faucet. This type of faucet requires three separate holes and consists of the hot-water valve, the cold-water valve and the spout all being mounted separately.
