|In response to Re: good quality plumbing fittings|
: Hi Terry and all,
: The quality of plumbing fittings available to me has been going downhill for a long time.
: The plumbing aisle guy at the big box told me to try a fitting and if it didn't work, bring it back and exchange it till I got a good one.
: What brands can I count on being good quality out of the box?
: Thanks and good health, Weogo
I use Walworth, stockham, Fairbanks, (Some Jenkins when available) Grinnell, Apollo, Wolverine brass for my valves.
For copper I like EPC or Stanley G Flagg for my brazed fittings .
Lee for threaded Brass (now harder to get) and "DART" unions only, except when I need dielectric unions.
Most of the junk today is a disgrace to install mostly foreign crap that is prone to failures
