Brass is found in so many facets of our lives, due its bright, beautiful coloring. The colors of brass can be light gold, and silver to almost red. Make sure you know you are not throwing away money-making brass items before you toss something out! It is an alloy of copper and zinc, and because it is so resistant to corrosion from weather and water it has been the plumbers choice for many years.

Brass has been used by various cultures for over 500 years, used in everything from coins in Roman times to electrical conductivity in ours. One reason brass has been so popular over the years as faucets and door knobs, is due to the fact it is a poor breeding ground for bacteria. Other materials that could be used do not offer the same antimicrobial properties.
