MAINTENANCE
Your new Design House faucet is designed to give you years of trouble free performance. Keep it
looking new by cleaning it periodically with a soft cloth. Avoid abrasive cleaners, steel wool and harsh
chemicals that will dull the finish and void your warranty.
Brass finishes are polished, then protected with a lacquer coating to help prevent tarnishing. Clean
these surfaces only with a damp, soft cloth.
CONSUMER PROTECTION WARNING
Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency restricts the
amount of lead used in brass and solder. Your new faucet is made in strict compliance with
all government standards. The materials used in the manufacture of this faucet are of industry
standard quality and are similar to other plumbing products having brass fittings.
To reduce the amount of lead in your drinking water, allow the water to run for a moment before
filling your glass and remember to always use cold water for drinking purposes.
