Nibco and Mueller seem to be pretty consistently good, although any can have an occasional problem. I can just see someone making a dozen trips to HD because the fittings do not fit the pipes.

: Hi Terry and all,

: The quality of plumbing fittings available to me has been going downhill for a long time.
: I'm talking about Copper, Brass, CPVC and other materials for shut-offs, tees, elbows, etc.
: Threads aren't right, valves leak, there are large pits in castings, etc.

: The plumbing aisle guy at the big box told me to try a fitting and if it didn't work, bring it back and exchange it till I got a good one.
: Even my local plumbing house is now carrying mostly imported, cheap fittings.
: I prefer not to treat my customers as guinea pigs.

: What brands can I count on being good quality out of the box?
: Any online suppliers you can reccomend?

: Thanks and good health, Weogo
