Knowing Your Plumbing Brands
It’s important to select a plumbing contractor who is competent and experienced in working with a wide variety of brands and models. There are many reputable companies today that produce quality, dependable plumbing products, giving consumers an array of good choices for new construction and for replacement purposes. Be sure to ask if the plumbing specialist you are considering is familiar with your specific equipment.
If you didn’t build the home you live in and select the products yourself, you may not be aware of the specific brands that you have. Take time to familiarize yourself with the brands and models, especially when it comes to toilets and hot water heaters. Knowing the brand names and features can help you better inform and prepare a plumbing contractor before they arrive to fix a problem. While this list is not all inclusive, here are a few of the hot water heater and toilet brand names that you may encounter:
