The 4933GSS is the most durable faucet on the market today. This premium quality faucet is made of 304 stainless steel with a PVD brass plated finish. PVD plating will not tarnish like a brass faucet can. This faucet has a 303 stainless steel shaft assembly and lever with a non-stick ball washer that ensures smooth operation. The stainless steel lever has standard threading that is compatible with most branded tap handles. The stainless steel lever is more durable than the brass lever and is preferred at heavy use environments such as bars.
