It has never been easier to get your hands on cheap plumbing fixtures and equipment, but that doesn’t mean you should simply go with the cheapest option. When planning your next plumbing project, feel free to get a skilled and experienced engineer’s advice on your next purchase.
If you are planning a bathroom refurbishment or carrying out renovations to a property, you may be tasked with sourcing new taps, baths, sinks, toilets, and other important fixtures. Since the price of these items can vary greatly, you may be tempted to grab something from the nearest internet marketplace, but as the old saying goes; ‘you get what you pay for’.
Even solid brass taps can have low quality casting inside. Taps contain moving parts and if these are not adequate, they can fail and will require repair sooner rather than later. In many cases, it is better to go with a slightly more expensive but far more reliable unit because it will last longer.
In some cases, a plumber may refuse to install the kit you have bought, or will offer no warranty or aftercare, if the equipment you have supplied is not up to scratch. Of course, this is fair enough. You wouldn’t want low quality fixtures and fittings to be installed because it would cost you more money in the long run.
Professional plumbers are usually your best choice when it comes to making purchases for your next project, because they have most likely tried, and tested, a range of different brands and models. Professional plumbers, such as the team at Synergy, also have better buying power than the average customer, meaning that they can usually source baths, sinks, counters, radiators, showers, screens, and lots of other accessories at a fraction of the retail price.
When buying cheap parts from eBay or Facebook, how do you know that these parts are brand new? Perhaps they have been reconditioned? When you undertake to have a plumbing install supplied by Synergy, we can pass on the product warranty and offer suitable aftercare. Simple.
So, there’s really no need to go it alone. It is tempting to try and save a few pennies sourcing plumbing fixtures for yourself, but why deal with the uncertainty? Synergy can support you on your next plumbing project or bathroom refurbishment every step of the way. From design to completion, let’s create something stunning, comfortable, and functional together.
