  • Water pressure reducing valves

    Customer's is shot. I need a 3/4",always buy watts. Any preferences? See a watts n45bu on line only $43.49 seems very inexpensive!
    I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

    I use these and that's actually less than I've been paying for them locally.
    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

              Talked with a key person at Watts a year ago and he told me that the fine to any manufacture or supplier that ships to California and does not meet the new lead law is $10,000.00 per item.

                  I pretty much gave up on Watts some time ago. I buy Wilkins, every chance I get.
                  All around better local service, for parts and pricing.
