Your clients come to you because you provide them with security. Yhey know that you know how to protect their homes from leakage and the associated money loss, and the choice of a brass fitting is the first step to that security.
In the average home, around 22 gallons of water are lost daily to leakage; that average household is losing 14% of its water. That?s a lot of water waste and money draining away with it every single day. In fact, the leaks in an average house can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water waste yearly. That?s the amount of water used to wash 270 loads of laundry, being wasted.
A crack in a pipe as small as only an eighth of an inch can spew up to 250 gallons of water every day, leading to flooding, property damage, often structural, and the serious potential for mold. If a family of four?s winter water use exceeds 12,000 gallons a month, it?s very likely that they have a serious leak issue. But the choice of a solid brass fitting (or brass fittings if needed) for plumbing is the solution. Brass valves and fittings have long been the preferred parts for these kinds of issues because they are extraordinarily durable and can be machined into precisely detailed parts.
The durability and longevity of a brass fitting is an added value to the the property where it is installed, because solid brass plumbing fixture fittings ? from brass flare fittings and brass compression fittings to brass garden hose fittings ? have outperformed alternative materials for centuries. Their long life, good looks and superior performance are all attractive selling points, as well as sensible reasons for the choice to use a brass fitting when needed.
