Consumers have more choices than ever when selecting a new lavatory faucet. Moen’s market research confirms what our experience has been with our customers in Myrtle Beach this past year.
Personally, I prefer the look of the two handle lavatory faucet and I like being able to operate the hot and cold independently. However, the most important feature that should be considered is the overall quality of the faucet. A beautiful faucet, even at a bargain price, is no bargain when it needs repair six months later.
Fogarty & Fogarty Plumbing Co., Inc. suggests checking with local plumbing supply houses to see if they stock repair parts prior to making a purchase. Some off-brand faucets can be repaired with name brand parts. In the industry, this is known as a knock-off. However, some off-brand faucets require special parts in order to make the repair.
Spending just a little extra time during the selection process may save you a lot of money and heartache down the road.
