Frequently Asked Questions
Q."What does "PVD" polished brass mean?" A."PVD" stands for "Physical Vapor Deposition" which is a modern plating process used in faucet manufacturing. Vaporized zirconium reacts with nitrogen and other gases to form a VERY durable plated surface. Unlike polished brass finishes in the past that would easily tarnish over time, polished brass finishes with PVD are extremely durable and won't generally tarnish or discolor.
Q."What is a Smitty plate used for?" A. A Smitty plate (also known as a remodeler's plate or a repair or retrofit plate) is used to cover larger holes in the wall where a faucet valve may have been replaced and it is not cost effective to replace the whole wall. They are also used when a larger hole was needed to repair a valve or leak, and a regular escutcheon is not sufficient to cover it.

Try the experiment of communicating, with fullness and accuracy, some experience to another, especially if it be somewhat complicated, and you will find your own attitude toward your experience changing. - John Dewey
