Brasstech Basket Strainers
Brasstech manufactures a wide array of sink and kitchen basket strainers and drains to select from. The kitchen basket strainer works to hold water in the sink while you are washing dishes or soaking items in the sink, and the strainer prevents small debris, food scraps, and so on, from being washed down the drain when you allow water to exit the drain. A basket strainer is a part of the drain that can be removed while the body remains attached. Most commonly, the kitchen basket strainer will fit a standard 3.5 inch drain hole in most kitchen sinks. The drain output is connected to a 1.5 inch p-trap. While the operation and style of the kitchen basket strainer may differ, in the end the function is the same.

Brasstech Air Gaps
An air gap’s job is to take surplus air of the lines of the reverse osmosis system so that your water flows more smoothly from your water dispenser. If you don’t have an air gap, you will notice that the water sputters when coming out of the dispenser. Brasstech offers a couple of options when it comes to air gaps, both of which were built to entirely replace the bottom flange while blending smoothly on the cold-water dispenser. When you are hooking up air gap lines, keep in mind that the inlet port is the one that features the quarter-inch tubing. This is used to hook up the filter drain system for reverse osmosis. The outlet drain is the large port that has the three-eighths-inch tubing, and it hooks up with the drain for waste. It is crucial that the lines for your system are never kinked, blocked, or looped in such a manner that might cause water to make its way out of the hole that is located in the back of the Brasstech air gap.

Brasstech Water Dispensers
From the contemporary to the traditional, you will find multiple options when shopping water dispensers by Brasstech. Brasstech’s water dispensers were built to coordinate with their kitchen faucets and can be purchased with an air gap if desired for those customers with an existing reverse osmosis system for filtering water. However, these dispensers cannot be used as a main faucet or bar faucet.
Brasstech water dispensers are available for cold water only, hot water only, or both cold and hot water dispensing. A reverse osmosis air gap can be used for cold-only water dispensing. If you are ordering a hot-only or a hot-and-cold water dispenser, then a hot water tank must also be purchased. Brasstech water dispensers were specifically designed around the concepts of reverse osmosis since reverse osmosis water has been known in some instances to be harmful to certain materials that are used in the manufacture of dispensers and faucets.
General instructions for cleaning and caring for your Brasstech faucets and bathroom fittings.
You can take pride in knowing that your Brasstech faucets, kitchen fittings, and bath fittings are made from solid brass that is of the highest quality. Maintaining the finish on your Brasstech product is a cinch, simply clean with a soft, somewhat damp cloth. Avoid using any abrasive cleaners, ammonia, rubbing alcohol, detergents, or silver or brass polish, as these products might scratch and mar the surface of your Brasstech item.
- Protect the finish of your Brasstech product with the application of a non-abrasive liquid wax to the surface of your clean product.
- You can use Brass Pro-Tech (which is manufactured by Brasstech) on all different types of plates and decorative painted finishes. Just add a bit of Brass Pro-Tech to your soft cloth and apply. Allow the product to dry. Remove Brass Pro-Tech by gently rubbing it with a dry cloth. This product doesn’t contain any harsh abrasives.
- The regular use of Brass Pro-Tech is highly advised for items that have a polished nickel, satin silver, satin nickel, and polished silver finish.
- Avoid allowing minerals in the water, soap scum, or toothpaste to become built up on the finish of your bathroom fittings, kitchen fittings, or faucets. Eventually, this can cause the protective finish or coating to deteriorate and lessen the beauty of the item.
- You can expect a natural change in color and some weathering with Brasstech Living Finishes and Uncoated Finishes (including 03W, 08W, 25S, 25, and 03N). Brasstech’s warranty does not cover Living Finishes and Uncoated Finishes. This change in color is not predictable and can vary.
