What is the reason to go w/ stainless steel valves over brass?
All brass fitting sold in Cali are 'lead-free' so in my opinion there is no difference here, except you probably won't find any 3 piece valves in brass. The brass ones even use a stainless steel ball, with Teflon bushings, just like the stainless.http://www.nibco.com/cms.do;jsessionid=KVHzgwbp1DEF+SUvrt7IBQ**.app2?id =6967http://www.nibco.com/cms.do?id=6942
To go on HBT and impress everyone with photos of your blinged-out setup.
Really, that's about it.
