All our designer faucetry comes from the American Faucet and Coatings Corporation, which specializes in high-end manufacturing for the bath and kitchen industry. This family-owned business is located in Vista, CA, and employs over 100 skilled workers that operate out of a 100,000 sq ft factory. All our faucets use German-made ¼ turn ceramic disc cartridges with a lifetime warranty. Spouts, handles, escutcheons, and valves are solid brass! Not plastic or stamped metal.
Lesser quality faucets use spring-loaded balls and rubber seals, nylon cartridges, washers, and seats, that wear out quickly leading to drips, costly frequent service, and part replacement. All faucet valves are machined with standard fitting sizes and threads which allows for more flexibility and creativity during installation. Faucets should be installed using ½” or larger diameter pipe to ensure adequate flow.
Many imported faucets are equipped with small diameter hoses (⅛”, ¼”, and ⅜”) which greatly restrict flow rates. Finding parts for imported faucets with nonstandard fittings can be troublesome. The faucet finishes carry a lifetime warranty so should a problem occur with the faucet, simply call us at 800-289-8827. Warranty excludes shipping and labor costs. Call Watertech at 1- 800-289-8827 if you have installation questions or need warranty service. All products are I.A.P.M.O. and CSA BIZS listed in the USA and Canada.
