Installing Your American Standard Plumbing Fixture
If you find an American Standard product you want to be installed, strongly consider hiring a professional plumber for the job. American Standard has a reputation for not being DIY friendly as many self-installers report product damage, structural damage, and water leaks. On the flip side, homeowners who had their American Standard fixture professionally installed report nothing but glowing reviews about the durability of the brand.
