A well-constructed faucet can help you avoid drips and leaks.

Your options for the faucet's main material pretty much come down to solid brass or plastic. Brass is by far the most recommended choice because of its toughness and ability to handle extreme temperatures.

Internally, your faucet will control the flow of water using either rubber washers, a plastic or ceramic cartridge, a plastic, brass, or stainless steel ball valve, or a ceramic disk. A ceramic disk is recommended for the same reasons as the solid brass.
