It needs to be well-made and of top-notch quality, if not it would only last you a couple of months. If you opt to buy any faucet that you can get your hands on, you stand the risk of spending money fixing it or replacing it repeatedly. Here is what to look for before you splash the cash for a kitchen faucet.
In selecting a kitchen faucet you will want to consider the kitchen sink. Kitchen sinks usually come with from one to four or more holes to accommodate various types of kitchen faucets. If you are considering changing a faucet on an existing sink, it is better to select a faucet to fits the sink's current hole configuration. If you want to change from a three-hole type faucet to a single-hole one you will be left with open holes that will need to be filled. On the other hand if you try to knock out additional holes to change from a single-mount to a three-hole type faucet you run the risk of damaging an existing sink. Therefore you will find it much easier to also install a new kitchen sink and faucet together because you can choose any kind of kitchen faucet and sink that is compatible.
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.
