Are there any good suppliers? I often get great deals on ebay and try to buy most things online nowadays.
I bought a few thinking that my customers couldn't get them anywhere else so it was a good idea....they are just not quality enough for my taste. They are just kind of junky. I now put in brand-name faucets instead.Are you refering to their etirnity line? IF so why do you think they are junkie? I never purchuse from them yet (Plumbmasters) been thinking about it though.
Ironically I opened an account with them about 6 months ago, I have yet to use them for the fact that they're about 50 miles away.I am using Barnett presently but I hate their online ordering system (unless they've changed it recently). They send me catalogs twice a year. I didn't like those either at first but once you get used to it it's fine. Their generally pretty fast on deliveries but sometimes you'll get items back ordered. I don't really care for my present sales rep, I think he was high the last time I talked to him on the phone. He can probably be replaced with a phone call though so I'll probably just live with it until I don't want to live with it anymore.
Overall I give them pretty good marks. They have a selection of repair parts that no supply house in my area even comes close to matching. You have to watch them on price some things are good but they'll try to slip one past you on some items i.e. $46.00 2 gal expansion tank, $66.83 Watts 3/4" prv, overall they are competitive and it's much easier to get a wide range of repair parts from them than calling or going by every supply house in town. Just flip open the catalog and there you go.
