Amazon plumbing fixtures vs plumbing supply store

last modified: last year

Hello, we had a plumber recommend that we always get fixtures through a plumbing supply store versus one of the box stores. His reasoning was that the same fixture would have metal from a plumbing store, while the box store version would be made with plastic. Has anyone else heard this? I am finding some great deals on Amazon for showerheads, and plan to get the drain and other recommended parts on there as well. But if our plumber's theory is correct, I'm assuming the parts on Amazon are the cheap version as well?
