To most corporations, making a profit is goal number one — but some of those companies take it way too far, sacrificing the health of the planet and its inhabitants for a bigger bank balance.
Our Philippine house building project. What we learned about plumbing in the Philippines when we built our modest dream home on Panay Island. For the Westerner, many Philippine bathrooms are just too small.
Some have no windows. This can be true even in upscale houses. The kitchen is designed for the maid. We realize that many readers will want hot water, so here is some information on the available options.
We have not included homemade systems such as outside drums painted black, coils of black pipe or the electric immersion heaters you put in a pail of water. CAE Kitchen faucet failed after one year. No repair parts available. This suggests the next category of faucet sets.
We ended up buying one of these for our kitchen faucet. The name was Italian, the display and packaging elegant. The quality seemed good.
Our lovely CAE faucet started leaking after about a year. More on our futile search for a replacement repair cartridge later. The third category of faucet sets available in the Philippines are those by the big American brands, such as American Standard and Delta.
However some American Standard units were reasonable. We bought all American Standard lavatory and shower faucet sets. They are made in Thailand and seem very well built. After three years there has been no corrosion and no leaking in any of them.
That brings us back to our leaking CAE kitchen faucet. We bought a Wassernison faucet set as a temporary replacement and then took the valve cartridge out of the CAE faucet so that we could get a replacement. There were absolutely no repair parts for the CAE faucets. In fact, the Moostbrand store which displayed and sold a glittering variety of fancy faucet sets had practically no repair parts for any of them.
A Wassernison cartridge worked, but could not accept the CAE handle so we had to buy a new handle as well as the cartrige set. If you can afford it, buy top quality Delta faucet sets. We wish we could also recommend American Standard, but I saw no repair kits for the brand in all of our shopping for the CAE repair kits.
If you want to save money, just buy Wassernison faucet sets. The quality and design are not great, but then the price is modest. They may look stylish but the underlying quality may be poor and parts are unlikely to be available, making for an expensive throw-away when the faucet fails in a year.
