  • What's Your Thoughts On Plumbing Products From China?

    Hi,

    I know when I use plumbing products I like to use ones Made in USA for a number of reasons.

    But it seems the Good Ole Boys at P&M magazine want to push Chinese products to all of us,.... They have a huge ad this month for a Chinese ISO show so they can connect more buyers to Chinese goods.

    How do you feel about Chinese Plumbing Products that are flooding the market place?

    You are way off base on this one Plumbing Skool. The ISH show is done in different parts of the world each year. They hold this show in Canada, the US, Germany, and China. Also P&M does not run this show they just report on it. The show is not just Chinese based items manufactures all over the world will be there showing off their products.

    Now as for products made in China, I will not buy it. If my supplier is caring cast iron from China or black pipe and fittings, I will go else where.

        I could be in your eyes, Then again, guess we will see in a few years,

        I don't see any NEW companies creating jobs or even producing American Products,

          Agreed, More and more products are being "duplicated" to look like American and then being made in China.

          Thanks very much for your input.

            I try using the best products I can but these days some of them could be coming from places you don't know about. I use Kohler faucets, Bradford White Water Heaters, Viega Propress and Pureflow products, Insinkerator, and Gerber Toilets. Now if some of these items are not made here that's ok, they are good quality products.
            Germany makes good beer, I think they do ok for plumbing too.
