Did you know that plumbing products have to be approved for installation in Massachusetts?

They do.

There's even an online system for it: Accepted Plumbing Products Online System by Massachusetts Board of Registration of Plumbers and Gas Fitters.

I searched for IKEA: Accepted Plumbing Products: IKEA.


Only two sinks are approved. No faucets.

Well, they sell a lot of faucets in Massachusetts. Why aren't they on the list?

I emailed the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Plumbers and Gas Fitters and sent a tweet out to IKEA.

Tweet:


Like this one:

TÄRNAN: Single lever kitchen faucet, chrome plated, pull-out

Let's see what happens.

Update 1:
I'm talking via email with both the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Plumbers and Gas Fitters and IKEA.

Stay tuned.

Update 2:

Lots more IKEA when you search for lowercase ikea.

Update 3:

  1. I just had a single lever faucet installed the other week. I love the look and I feel like the flow is much better than my previous one. I hired an Atlanta plumbing company and they did such a great job! I am very happy that I chose to hire them.

    Thank you for the information, and helping get more plumbing items approved! It's a really big help! To be honest, more people should be like you and help out in a bunch of little ways (I think you helped push along the approved plumbing items from IKEA). Thanks again!
