The Water Monopoly - Pewter

Model Code: PF

PEWTER FINISH

The Pewter finish is a brushed, satin Nickel finish. 

THE NATURE OF PEWTER FITTINGS

These brass products are manufactured by skilled craftsmen in their factories in England.  Products manufactured from premium brass and the Nickel finish is applied over the brass.  The Nickel is then brushed to give a satin finish with the appearance of Pewter.

It must be noted that this is NOT stainless steel.  This Pewter finish has warm tones and is known as a ‘living finish’.  This means it responds to the environment, over time darkening slightly to develop a natural patina.  (See Care & Maintenance)

INSTALLATION

Ensure the plumber uses clean hands or gloves when installing your fittings and cleans off any plumbing product.  Ask them to cover the tapware if it is installed before the room is finished, to avoid fumes and splatters from paint or commercial cleaning products. NB: Paints continue to cure for a few days - vapours released during this process can sometimes cause metal finishes to discolour or tarnish. It is best to wait until no paint odour can be detected before installing plumbing trim pieces.

CARE & MAINTENANCE

Products such as acids in the bathroom such as toothpaste and shaving foam will affect the surface of the Pewter finish and cause tarnishing. Some water contains minerals that will leave deposits as water spots if allowed to dry on this finish.

Get into the habit of rinsing soap off the shower fittings when finished and wiping basin taps to remove splashes.  Pewter fittings should be cleaned regularly with a damp soft cloth before being dried off with a clean cloth. A pH neutral mild detergent may be used if desired. If uneven discolouration occurs, the fittings can be occasionally cleaned with Autosol Liquid Metal Polish (from an automotive product supplier or hardware store – check availability).
