Potmetal parts in less expensive " Brand Name Faucets"

Here is the underside of a sink faucet made from cheap pot-metal components.  The homeowners took reasonably good care of it, yet it rotted out from underneath anyway. This faucet was in use about 2 yrs.

The thin tubular brass spout also didn't last long. In this case the water ate right through the side of it. When I arrived on the scene they had tape wrapped around it in an attempt to stop the leak.

What a fixture is made from, really does matter!
