The Answer Line
JB Industries The Answer Line
is a new online resource for information on every imaginable specialty plumbing
part. J.P. Shields, a Long Island licensed plumbing contractor with 30 years of
specialty plumbing experience, helped create www.TheAnswerLine.com as a full-service resource with
up-to-date information about toilet parts and repair from 1930 to the present.
Membership privileges allow people to post and read helpful information and
build a network of resources for all their specialty plumbing needs. To
date, The Answer Line has three major china manufacturers on board: American
Standard, Kohler and Toto. It expects to have all fixture manufacturers on the
site by the end of this year.
Enclosures’ new Web site, www.bascoshowerdoor.com, allows
consumers in the market for a new shower door or enclosure to create their
dream shower environment, print it out, and bring it to their local Basco
dealer to get the customization process started.
