PRIER plumbing brass is superior in design and composition. As one of the only manufacturers to continue using red brass castings, PRIER's plumbing brass will stand the test of time. Virtually all import manufacturers utilize less costly and less durable yellow brass, which typically has a high content of lead. Red brass will not dezincify as yellow brasses will, and, like all PRIER products, are designed to last the life of the plumbing system.
Additionally, PRIER's plumbing brass utilizes a packing nut instead of a fragile O-ring seal, for years of dependable life without the headache of trying to replace a damaged O-ring.
