Transcript Mott Modern Plumbing Preface 1 HE space allotted to this preface is too small to permit more than a brief summary of the facts necessary to bear in mind when purchasing sanitary fixtures. Regardless of the amount of money to be expended, it is important for those making the selection to know the relative values of various types of fixtures. While solid imperial porcelain or vitreous china ware are a little more expensive than good quality enameled iron fixtures, the superiority of the all-clay body earthenware with its hard wearing surface will alone repay the additional outlay, yet the added beauty of design and harmony of color for which the earthenware is noted, make it far superior from an artistic standpoint. It would be well for the reader to refer to pages 6 and 7, where will be found a brief outline of the process of manufacture. As the cost of installing first-class plumbing fixtures is about the same as for installing a cheaper grade, it is false economy to allow first cost alone to be the determining factor. Before deciding on any particular type of fixture for a bathroom, a decision should be made as to the material to be used for covering the walls. This is necessary because some fixtures, such as built-in tubs, require a wall of waterproof material. Tiling is the most practical and beautiful material to use for walls. The same taste and good judgment may be shown in the tiling of a very simple bathroom as for the most elaborate. A visit to one of our showrooms will help you in selecting not only sanitary fixtures but tiling and bathroom furnishings as well.
