Recommended Plumbing Supply Store?

Was recently told by a plumber that specialized plumbing supply stores sell better quality faucets than the ones you find at big box stores (Lowe's/Home Depot.) Are there any plumbing supply stores out there that anyone would recommend? I appreciate your expert opinion!

William,

The plumber is absolutely correct. It has never been a secret that companies produce lower quality products for the big box stores. I never purchase anything from them. Go online and look around. They are in your own city. We have more than one plumbing and electrical supply houses in Mt Airy. Go online and look at Kingston Brass is just one of many. High quality. But be prepared to pay for the high quality. But you will pay only once in your lifetime for the product. Ferguson is a place for kitchen appliances, they carry brands such as Wolf and SubZero. The big box stores now carry A.O. Smith water heaters, but compare the difference in one of the same type from a box store and a plumbing supply house. You will immediately see that the box store connections are plastic, and the plumbing supply house is stainless steel, the rod inside the tank is aluminum from the box store and magnesum from the plumbing supply house.
