Crystal Bay faucet manifests its high quality at every glance and touch, and this can be summed up in two words: stainless steel. To achieve superior products, it is necessary to make a fundamental change from chromed brass, traditionally used in this industry, to stainless steel. Crystal Bay faucet is made of premium SUS 304 stainless steel, not brass. Crystal Bay faucets are built to last with solid lead-free stainless-steel construction.
Stainless steel is a very green material that is completely recyclable and, with proper care, has a useful life expectancy that will span decades.
It is much harder and more durable and takes and keeps a polish well. Stainless steel is also more popular because its smooth design and it deters bacteria and dirt, it cannot rust, chip or crack, and it does not affect the flavor of food. Lead is rarely found in source water but enters tap water through corrosion of plumbing materials. The most common problem is with brass or chrome-plated brass faucets and fixtures which can leach significant amounts of lead into the water, especially hot water. Crystal Bay offers high quality lead-free stainless-steel faucets at an affordable price.
