Hahaha!!

Condemning Deming and fisting fister.

When I worked for my uncle's corrugated boxboard company in the late 60's in L.A., we made boxes for Price Pfister, who were located in Pacoima.
IzzyFamilian was the guy who bought the company from Mr. Price and Mr. Pfister. and my uncle would meet him for lunch when he came to our factory in Vernon, CA.
Izzy was a industry legend and we were in awe that he was chums with my uncle Charles.
I was going to be going to law school back then so didn't have any appreciation for pumbing stuff except to what boxes they needed.
Well, I have no regrets that I didn't go to law school and I've veered way off topic, but there isn't much to say about the company except that they once made crappy but solid faucets and still do, if you get lucky. I won't install B brands like Danze or Glacier or Pegasus, but would, maybe still install a Pfister.
Good lifetime warranty.
But, I love my Grohe reps more than any other company over 43 years, so even though it is now a part of the international conglomerate that owns Am. Standard, Lixil, you can't beat good local reps who respond to texts and have all the Grohe parts a few miles from home and email warranty free parts service.

I put in a Glacier bay vessel sink, and faucet at a local inn today at the request of the owners after replacing a piece of galvanized pipe with copper on the outside of the 2nd floor of the building.

It's all junk, but it's their junk. I'll come back and swap it later.

The worst glacier bay stuff I have touched are the kitchen sinks. The mounting rail tack welds pop loose when you try to tighten the clips to the bottom of the counter.





PP is owned by black and decker now.

I installed a customer supplied glacier bay kitchen faucet yesterday. Got her done in less than 30 minutes. I love it when the install is easy.

It was evidently very cheap, plastic chrome, thin washers under the sink and the screws are one time use. He paid more for the plumber than the faucet.

Did the same about 2 years ago, wait til the call you back cuz the faucet is loose..

it seems like a good easy “diy’er” install/design, but poorly executed.

I showed him how to tighten the faucet if it came loose. Plus customer supplied items have no guarantee what so ever. They sign that twice. I've been installing their stuff since I opened shop and no complaints yet. let's hope it continues!
