Make Your Own Cost Comparison

Since there are so many different ways a plumber can purchase fittings, we thought it would be better for you to enter your costs and then we’ll calculate how much you save with our pre-soldered fittings. We know our fittings are superior and they cost less too.

Solder - As you know, a one-pound roll can cost as much as $32, $60, $90, or even $100. In most cases it is 4500 to 7300 psi. We use 9500 psi solder. Remember too, our solder is included in our price.

When you compare our pre-soldered fittings to others in the marketplace such as Watts or Mueller, be sure to compare the specifications of the fitting and the solder, the instructions for use provided, our user friendly packaging, and of course pricing.

We welcome any comments or suggestions regarding your cost comparison methods and results.
