Residential vs Commercial Faucets?
I'm working on my bathroom. Most of it is DIY, but not changing the tub/shower combo valve and faucet.
When I called the plumber to see what it would cost to have him do this (this is a plumber that has done work for us before) he gave me his answer and then said - "please choose a faucet from a plumbing supplier rather than Home Depot. The Home Depot ones are for threaded pipes and it will take twice as long to install and the price would be different."
I went to the local plumbing showroom that he recommended and it's all fine - the prices are the same as I wanted to pay and I wasn't married to any particular style.
The salesperson at the showroom said they have the commerical lines in lieu of the residential lines, but she said it only matters for the tub - the sink faucets are all the same.
I looked on Moen and Delta's websites and I can't figure out what the difference is between the two. Does anyone know what the difference is (what are threaded pipes?) and how could you possibly tell without someone telling you?
