Where to buy discount plumbing supplies

Shopping to buy discount plumbing supplies is a tricky business at best, and quite confusing for those who don't know much about it. Calling a professional plumber to fix designer sinks may end up being cheaper than buying bath sinks, the electric tools and DIY tool kits required. However, once people get the hang of it and know where to get the supplies, it gets a lot easier.

Plumber supplies

The easiest way to buy plumbing supplies in the UK is to buy them from a store like Plumb Centre (Plumbcenter.co.uk) which stocks over 45,000 branded products in over 490 branches. They offer everything from copper fittings and brassware to heater oil and gas radiators. That's not all either, because they also provide everything needed for commercial plumbing and heating, and they also offer complete Plumb Centre luxury bathroom kits. Customers who want to buy supplies can do so in-person at the nearest Plumb Centre store, or order it online and have it ready for pick-up or even get it delivered to the site.

Online

Speaking of online shopping, that's another easy way to shop for just about any plumbing supply item, whether common or rare, big or small, and cheap or expensive. Online retailers like Plumb World (Plumbworld.co.uk) offer internet only rates on everything from toilets and bidets to bathroom taps, kitchen sinks, consumables, wastes and traps. Then, there are the giant online shopping sites like eBay and Amazon. Amazon's plumbing supplies list under 'Bathrooms & Plumbing' includes everything from a ceramic repair kit for baths, sinks and counter tops to compression fittings and flexible tap connectors.

Homebase

Those who are doing some plumbing as part of a renovation may prefer Homebase. They have a huge collection of commonly used plumbing supplies, tools and accessories under 'Building and Hardware'. Their listings include everything from valves and chemicals to sealants and tapes, pipe fittings and connectors, heating radiators and vents, etc.

DIY parts suppliers

DIY enthusiasts will no doubt prefer to get a full plumbing kit instead of buying things from the store or even worse - buying the wrong parts. There are sites like Discoveredit.com where one can buy full plumbing repair kits. Sites like DIYNetwork offer detailed how-to's for plumbing DIY projects like cheap heating, with links to providers where the required parts and DIY tool kits can be ordered. Once a person gets comfortable with the process, it gets a lot cheaper.
