Default Perlick Faucets-Chrome or SS

So, I'd like to get a couple of Perlick's. The price difference is somewhat significant. Outside of bling.. why should I buy a SS vs a PC? I'm thinking there should be no problem with the chrome plating as I'm not a commercial beer pumper.

Thanks for suggestions..

I got SS myself. The way I saw it, I was investing in Perlicks, might as well make it a lifetime investment.

I would/did opt for the stainless. Stainless is forever and can be sterilized.

I have the chrome version. I haven't had any issues. The best upgrade I made was going to perlicks from the rear seal faucets.

I went with stainless. The price difference isn't all that much and since I plan on having them forever the nominal difference wasn't enough for me to go with the chrome ones.
