If you’re renovating or upgrading your bathroom, you will already be quite familiar with the very strange range of choices and almost total lack of information available. The trouble with lifestyle magazines and those wonderful almost totally uninformative product handouts is that you would think everyone was an expert in plumbing fittings.
Some product information doesn’t tell you much more than that the product is shiny and looks nice. Other product information looks like a performance review, and is about as entertaining.Buying a water heater in LA really shouldn’t be like doing a course in something.
Let’s face it – When you’re paying for something, it’s nice to have the information you need. The bottom line here is that you need to know what you’re buying, and why you’re buying it.
A few basic points about buying bathroom fittings:
• In Los Angeles, you need good, up-to-date, efficient plumbing fittings, whether you’re buying kitchen faucets or bathroom faucets and shower heads, or a new toilet.
• The older generation plumbing fittings are worse than useless in LA. They’re part of the problem, not the solution. They are very water-inefficient, and they’re basically at the bargain bin stage.
• Despite the hype, top brand plumbing fittings are not actually very expensive. You can get excellent top brand products are quite reasonable prices. All you need to do is shop around.
• You do need to compare products and get your facts straight. The best way to do this is shop online, preferably through a major distributor which will have all the products you need.
