What are the Top 10 Plumbing Fixture Brands?
Recommend What You Would Personally Use
Plumbing fixtures absolutely need to be built to last. Much as it might be tempting, this is not the place where you want to cut corners and look for savings.
These fixtures are generally built to last and are expensive to replace. Better off to go with the best right from the outset.
Having said that, when plumbers recommend a fixture, they are putting their reputations on the line. Reputation is professional currency for most all plumbers.
Recommending products other than those that have been tried and tested, have proven competency and are the leaders in their category can be a bit self-destructive.
Doing research and going with the best is reputation preservation and engenders future business in the coveted form of referrals.
The fixture companies preferred by many plumbers are American Standard, Swanstone, Clarion, Armstrong, Danze, Kohler, Delta, Sterling, Toto, and Grohe, not necessarily in this order. These are some of the oldest and best in this space.
Any company can say they are the best but ultimately professionals and consumers using these products build consensus. These companies have built enormous positive consensus. Delta, Moen, Grohe and Kohler are consistently rated the highest in residential kitchen sink faucet market and Danze occupies the number one spot in commercial faucets.
Toto and Kohler are some of the highest ranked for bathroom faucets. Mansfield, American Standard and Toto are leaders in toilets and Sterling, Swanstone and Clarion are some of the leaders in showers and bases.
Many of these fixture manufacturers are ranked at the top across all categories. A plumber can safely recommend top fixtures as they can rely on empirical, industry-wide evidence of their reliability.
Bathrooms and Kitchens Sell Homes
Any home improvement show will drive this home because it is true. Every other room in the house is a box waiting to be decorated.
The kitchen and bathroom are all about the plumbing, fixtures and, in the case of the kitchen, appliances. This is where money should be spent.
There is nothing quite as gratifying as a hot shower, falling from a rain shower head with great water pressure. Spending on these fixtures will never lead you astray.
Partner with your plumber and think very long-term when replacing or doing a rehabilitation project. Consider that you will want to use that shower, those faucets and those sinks for many years to come.
It is probably one of the few investments that will warrant excellent daily returns!
