The good news is lifetime warranties that include leaks and stains is about customary in the faucet trade. With credit to technology, most accomplish the task of delivering water remarkably well. Aside from the least expensive faucets sold, today's kitchen fixtures are built with better valves and hardier finishes. So performance is not a true measuring stick - they all do a good job of that. What is worthy of noting is what happens to the faucet with day by day wear. Just how does it stay resistant to scratches, stains, bumps and bruises?
Time for chemistry class. Faucet exteriors are assaulted with charged metal atoms. These particles bond chemically to the surface of the base metal by a procedure called physical vapor deposition, or PVD. The issue is that different metals have an effect on assorted finishes. Even nickel and bronze. The evaluation team discovered that faucets with PVD finishes stood strong despite their honest attempts to scratch and mar them. PVD finishes are not 100% bullet proof however and heavy-duty corrosives (i.e. drain cleaner) can lightly discolor them.
Touch faucets are fantastic and are quickly growing in popularity. These hands-free kitchen faucets turn on and off with just a light touch of a hand or arm. These faucets are becoming a favorite in "aging in place" kitchens or with the disabled. These are wonderful additions to any food prep sink because they are so easy to turn on with dough or flour covered hands. They are also useful for a potting bench sink.
