The Pelican Fountain Series PL-8218 Kitchen Faucet is sure to be a reliable and long-lasting option for your kitchen remodel. It is constructed using brass and is completely lead free. It features a ceramic cartridge as opposed to plastic, as you will see on many other faucet options. Here in Florida, we have very hard water with high mineral content that causes calcium buildup inside of the faucet. These faucets have been thoroughly tested and will hold up even under the toughest water conditions. The Fountain Series Faucets carry a limited lifetime warranty for as long as the original purchaser owns the home the sink was originally installed in.
