Information on Satin Brass
Making a comeback from the early 90s, the satin brass finish is one to consider when designing your home décor. Satin brass carries a form of elegance, incomparable to other hues, from its lack of near-blinding shine to its ideal balance of toned color. The finish exemplifies the harmony of brilliance and composure with the ability to fit most home ensembles, giving them discreet hints of colorful hues without the bright, excessive shine. Add a vivifying splash of satin brass hues to your home to enhance vintage harmony.
What is the difference between ceramic and washerless cartridge?
A: Both are very distinct systems.
A ceramic cartridge depends on two opposing discs with triangular openings which either line up to allow the flow of water or block the opposing disc openings (preventing the flow of water). A washerless cartridge is designed with a stainless steel plate at the bottom. This has a crescent shape cutout as the cartridge rotates the cutout lines up with a spring-loaded washer to allow the flow of water. When the cartridge turns 180 degrees, the spring-loaded washer will line up with the solid portion of the cartridge blocking the flow of water.
The bottom line is that both systems perform the same function in a consistent manner. The major differences are that because ceramic carbide will not wear out due to friiction. The carbide however is brittle and any debris on the water lines may cause the cartridge to crack, barring that eventually it could literally last a lifetime. On the other side, the springs on the washerless cartridge will eventually lose their tension allowing water to seep in between the washer and the stainless steel plate causing the faucet to drip. Should repairs be necessary, replacing the springs, washers and cartridge is far more economical than replacing a ceramic cartridge.
Q: What cleaning products should I stay away from while cleaning my Kingston Brass item?
A: Kingston Brass recommends that you only clean your faucet with a mild non-abrasive soap (hand soap). If you notice calcium or lime buildup, we suggest that you use a half-and-half solution of one-part warm water, one-part vinegar and a wash cloth. Do not use any harsh or abrasive items to wide down your KB item.
