Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Are all of these products really made in the USA?"
A. We've gone over our product listing with a fine-tooth comb, and with the assistance of the manufacturers listed above, have ensured every product featured on this page is 100% made in the USA. If you see any of these images you can rest assured your product has been proudly made in the United States. Please be aware, however, that some of our product pages have items that are and are NOT made in the USA listed together. We've tried to make sure every item that is made in America is clearly indicated as such, so please look for the images.
Q. "Why should I buy plumbing products made in the United States?"
A. What you choose to purchase is a personal decision, and there are a myriad of reasons why you might choose to buy a product. We aren't going to say a certain product is the best solution for you simply because it's made in America. However, we stand behind every product we offer because we choose to offer only the best quality products available - and some of those happen to be manufactured right here in our own country. We believe in supporting the United States - its people and its economy. When you buy products made in the USA, you're helping to support our country's economy and create jobs for our citizens. Plus, you have the satisfaction and peace of mind that comes with knowing your item was produced according to the United States' quality and safety standards, and under humane and safe working conditions.
Q. "What's the "Buy American Challenge" and how can I find out more?"
A. The Buy American Challenge is an idea started by the Buy American Movement that essentially asks all Americans to buy only goods manufactured in the United States - or at least try to buy only American. Whether you choose to do so for a week, a month, a year, or for the rest of your life is up to you. Realistically, there are some things that simply are not manufactured in the USA, but when you have a choice the Challenge urges you to choose USA-made products. Please note, PlumbingSupply.com® is not in any way affiliated with the Buy American Movement or any related organization. We chose to compile this collection of products that are manufactured in the USA for our customers' convenience to help them make educated choices about the plumbing products we offer.
