Constructed of lead free brass and solder, copper tubes, and stainless locator pin.
Unless you order other parts in addition to this assembly, every part from your old faucet must be removed and installed on this assembly.
This appearance of this part is the result of the 3,000+ degrees F soldering process. It isn't "bad" and it isn't "used".

If you order this be aware that you have to have the insert and seals. You can either remove it from your old one or buy a new one. The instructions don't mention ANYTHING about this vital part! Its not in any of the videos either. I finally figured out why water was coming out both the hose and faucet after I looked inside and realized something was missing. Good thing my husband kept the old one so we could remove it and put it in this new piece. I'm disappointed in dishmaster.
