Fixtures(general)

Fixtures are the reason we bring water into a home and carry it away. Fixtures are basically the appliances for the plumbing feeds. They are the sinks and toilets that we have in a home.

In the United States, most homes will have a toilet, bathroom sink, tub/shower, and a kitchen sink. Many homes will often have a second bathroom or just a half bath(toilet and sink). Other custom homes can essentially have whatever the designer wants. We will be covering all of the basic styles here, as well as getting into some of the more rare fixtures and styles.

There have been many manufacturers of plumbing fixtures over the years. Many are still around doing business, but some are no longer around. Each manufacturer offers many different styles and options, making it impossible to document each and every fixture made in the last 50 years. Here at free online plumber, one of our goals is to document as many as possible.

There are many similarities, however, between many fixtures of the same type. For example, while there are many kitchen faucets available, as well as sinks, where and how the faucet mounts is fairly universal. This allows you to have a choice of many faucets for the same kitchen sink. Most fixtures designed in this manner, but of course, some products are very different and not compatible.

In each page of the fixture section, you will find the similarities of the fixtures and what to watch out for. The most different part of fixtures is the faucets.

Here is partial list of some of the more common faucet brands:

  • American Standard
  • Crane
  • Delta
  • Kolher
  • Moen
  • Price Pfister
