anyone ordered from

I'm looking to purchase the Symmons Allura tub/shower system, but it's only available at a couple of on-line stores. After reading the horrible experiences at, I have scratched them off the list. Two other sites I found are plumbersstock and webfaucets but I haven't found any reviews here. Does anyone have any experience with these on-line retailers?

Amazon also has Symmons. It looks like they sell the Allura trim kit and the valve separately.

Thanks for the responses. Unfortunately, Amazon only sells the chrome finish and we're looking for the satin nickel. I looked at what Home Depot sells and the item number is different. From what I've read in this forum, the big box stores sell a cheaper version of some of the plumbing fixtures, replacing some of the metal parts with plastic.

I was looking for Symmons too, and found it a plumbing wholesaler in my town. Have you looked at the Symmons website and their 'find a dealer' link? That's how I found my guy.

Symmonds was always sold by plumbers, and within the last year started selling at the big box stores. It is a quality product, so I don't know why the would cheapen the product to sell at HD, the replacement parts look of high quality and they are not cheaply priced.

Thanks Raehelen. A local retailer was willing to give me their contractor price, so there wasn't much of a difference between their price and the on-line price.

PlumbersStock is great. I ordered an American Standard toilet from them. It was really cheap, and it arrived in one piece. That's all I care about.
