    The biggest problem with the box stores is that they continue to FAIL to prevent shelf merchandise from being "tampered" with, and to keep returns , which clearly have been opened and " fiddled" with, from being restocked as new on the shelf. The theory is always sell more by being "user friendly", and let the chips fall where they may. The basic "guts" are almost always the same. You will find a plastic drain assembly in a lav, for example, where at a supply house you can order all plastic, 50/50, or all metal. Your choice. They sometimes carry a model which is exclusive to that store. That is usually just slightly different handles, so they can have a proprietary model name.

    The debate about whether the manufacturers pawn-off "seconds" or factory rejects, onto the box stores.....well that will continue longer than Diane Feinstein vs. the NRA!!!

    Thanks for your insight on faucets. BTW, Let's hope Feinstein loses!
