FAQ

What should I look for when purchasing a faucet?

Mounting Type

Centerset
Centerset faucets are mounted on a single base and are made for basins with three holes and have handles that are 4 inches apart.

Widespread
Widespread faucets work with three-hole basins. They have three separate pieces – two handles and a spout – and the spacing between the handles for NASONI’s widespread faucet are designed to be  8 inches apart, suitable for most widespread applications.

Finish

Bathroom faucets featuring physical vapor deposition, or “PVD”, feature the latest technology for bonding a finish to a standard brass faucet. With PVD, the finish becomes an integral part of the faucet itself, resisting tarnish, scratches and corrosion, keeping the faucet looking good longer. PVD finishes are far the most durable finish available today.

Construction

Brass

The copper in brass is anti-microbial — it kills germs. Brass is prized for faucets because it is very resistant to corrosion, has a relatively low melting point — making it easy to cast — is soft enough to machine with little effort yet hardy enough to endure the rigors of life as a faucet, takes finishes such as chrome plating very well, and is easily recycled.

Ceramic Disc Faucets
Ceramic disc faucets are practically maintenance-free. They have two ceramic discs that move against each other in a shearing action, blocking water or allowing it to pass through. The seal between the two discs is watertight because they are polished to near-perfect flatness.

Matching Pop-up Drain
A matching pop-up drain will complete the new look of the bathroom.

Lever Handles
Lever handles make them easy to grip and turn for anyone, but are especially suited for those with disabilities. Lever handles are available in many decorative styles, making them perfect for the bathroom faucet.

Water-efficient Designs
WaterSense® faucets are built to use less water while matching the performance of less efficient models. According to EPA.gov, by installing a WaterSense® faucet an average household can save more than 500 gallons of water a year.

Why do I need the NASONI Fontanina bathroom faucet?

NASONI’s Fontanina bathroom faucet not only utilizes the best materials for construction and finish, but also includes our patented fountain capability, offering more capability in a bathroom faucet than ever before.  Today, for the first time ever, you can have a water fountain and a water faucet, all in one, in the perfect, elegant solution that is perfect for any environment.  

What is a Pop-Up Drain Assembly?

Bathroom sink drains are either pop-up drains or grid drains, with the difference being pop-up drains can close, allowing water to build up in the sink. Grid drains have small holes that can’t close, so water always drains.

Pop-up drains open and close through a lever that’s behind the sink faucet. These types of drains are good if you ever need to fill the sink with water.

How do I clean my Fontana faucet?

NASONI’s Fontanina faucets with PVD finish offer easy maintenance. Follow these dos and don’ts to keep your Fontanina faucet looking great for years to come:

  • Simply wipe dry after use with a soft dry cloth to prevent water-spotting and mineral build-up.
  • Avoid all abrasive and aggressive chemicals (“SoftScrub”, etc.).
  • Avoid ammoniated products (window glass cleaner, tile cleaners, etc.).
  • Avoid bleach. Do not use abrasive cleaning pads.
  • Avoid all products designed to remove tarnish or rust, and contain hydrochloric, hydrofluoric, and/or phosphoric acid or caustic agents.
  • Do not allow water to collect at base of faucet.
Why should I add the NASONI Filter to my order?

The number one reason many don’t enjoy the taste of tap water is chlorine taste and odor. 

Not many of us enjoy a glass of water straight from the tap and the number one reason is chlorine taste and odor. Chlorine is a highly efficient disinfectant, and it is added to public water supplies to kill disease-causing bacteria that the water or the public water system might contain. Chlorine is very efficient against cholera and various other water-borne diseases, and keeps drinking water safe.

However, once the water is delivered to your faucet, chlorine’s job is done and is no longer needed. And NASONI’s inline, under counter water filters remove over 99% of the chlorine that’s present in your tap water.  It is designed to be installed with your cold-water line only, just before your faucet.  It is designed for easy installation and replacement.

I just love the NASONI Fontana faucet and wanted to let others know about it. Is there someone I can tell?
