I got to thinking it would be cool to start a thread listing what companies/products (plumbing and heating related) that we know are still American made and what ones are not. I always thought B&G pump parts where American made but just bought an oem coupler to see china stamped on it :censored:. I know you can get Appollo ball valves either international or American made. I bet the list on the china side will be alot longer :cry:

Ok, this one might haunt me for a while, :laughing: But Viega Pex is being made in Mcpherson Kansas, recently opened up a new 439,000 sq. ft. production facility there. It's right off I35, I'll have to visit there someday.:thumbup:

Ridgid hand tools. Symmons makes a quality solid brass tub shower valve, even used in a lot of hotels here in Massachusetts. It weighs about twice of what a typical Delta, Moen weighs. They haven't changed the design in about 25 years. Reasonably priced.

I've never used Symmons but have seen them around in hotels like you said. Have you ever used them for residential? I see them in one of my books, the Temptrol? I might have to try them, thanks.
