Thread: Stainless steel floor drain

    Stainless steel floor drain

    Hello everyone,,
    How can one know if a floor drain is of stainless steel material or brass with chrome finish. Believe me they almost look alike and I really face difficulty at times while approving floor drains of stainless steel material. Please give some clue, thanks.*

    Weight per volume is the only sure way less material trace-ability.
    Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

    A file or tiny grinder on a bottom edge would remove any plating and reveal the base material.

    Stainless could have some magnetic properties but not brass. Get a really strong magnet and test.
