This faucet is only about a yr old. We live in the Florida panhandle. We have well water but we have a water softener system. All of my faucets look like this with this being the worst. It's the fartherest set from the softener system, meaning the salt/softener has to travel the length of the house to get to this bathroom. It's driving me crazy. I clean it constantly. I've even worn the finish off the countertops from cleaning it. We will be replacing it again but I can't replace faucets yearly..... Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. (Oh, vinegar will take the deposits off but it also takes the finish off, so I still would have to replace because the vinegar will ruin the faucet also). Other then drilling a new deep water well, which is about $5000+, I need advice. Thanks.
