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.
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.
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?
