Brass Bathroom Faucets
Brass bathroom faucets can be a great option for anyone interested in a trend-resistant, long-lasting bathroom fixture.
One of the greatest advantages of brass faucets is their durability. In general, they are more resistant to corrosion than any other type of faucet material—especially if they're installed in homes where hard water is a concern.
Your first task if you're considering brass bathroom faucets is to distinguish between solid brass construction—the strongest and longest lasting—and construction that features brass plating. The first way to check is to pick the entire fitting up—it should be heavier than other units that don't feature a solid brass body. Additionally, the packaging should read "all brass body", as opposed to "ZMACK" for brass or other metal-plated bodies.
The durability and versatility of brass bathroom faucets does mean that you'll likely pay more for them than for lesser metals or other materials. In general, brass faucet fixtures start at around $150 and go up from there. But if you're determined to install a bathroom faucet that will last through the years, solid brass is a great option.
