Tested Fixtures Meet Consumer Needs

Consumers want plumbing fixtures that are safe and function well. They want to be certain a shower tray won’t leak, taps won’t corrode, and toilets will flush properly. The only way manufacturers can assure potential buyers is by having a product rigorously tested, says SGS, a provider of solutions to help plumbing fixture manufacturers comply with regulatory requirements and meet or exceed consumer expectations. Performance testing for plumbing fixtures covers factors such as water discharge capacity; ease of cleaning; load capacity; durability; resistance to thermal shock, staining agents, detergents, scratches, abrasion, and pressure; brilliance; anti-corrosion; and leakages.
