|Glacier Bay Leaking Faucet|
|Calcium deposits on faucet|
When we built our house 10 years ago we chose Glacier Bay faucets. I replaced my master bathroom faucets with Glacier Bay once again because they hold up. This faucet leaked because it got the most use for 10 years by four people (young children included). I believe our hard water led to its demise. There are two big reasons why I chose Glacier Bay once again, price and materials. When shopping for faucets you want as much metal as possible. I tap everything with my ring to make sure and inspect the bottom threaded connections. Brass is good, but plastic threads have more of a chance of getting cross-threaded or broken when over tightened. In order to check out the faucet materials I actually pulled down the floor sample from the wall to check it out.
Here is a picture of the new Glacier Bay faucet installed. Nothing too fancy but was very similar in style to our last faucets and they were only $27.00.
