Plumb Center launches Shower Selector tool

Published:  10 October, 2016

Plumb and Parts Center has launched an online shower selector tool for installers.

The new tool is designed to be intuitive and mobile device-friendly, making it easy for installers to specify on the job.

Where installers would previously have to navigate around the full website to identify products, they can now answer a series of simple questions about the particular job they are working on, leading to a comprehensive list of suitable options from 10 leading brands including Coram, Mira, Ideal Standard, Twyford, Ionic, Aqualisa, Bristan, Triton, Just-Trays and Grohe.

The tool also gives installers the ability to build an order list directly from the selector, reducing the risk of human error and time ordering and collecting stock. The wishlist can then be saved for future reference and emailed through to a customer to aid the sales process. It also includes options for shower trays, screens and enclosures.

Customer research found that installers tend to base their shower recommendations on quality rather than brand or guarantee. With this in mind, Plumb and Parts Center designed the tool to help the installer explain the benefits of purchasing a more premium product.

The shower selector tool is the latest addition to Plumb and Parts Center's suite of online tools designed to help make installers' lives easier. They can be accessed at:
