Quiz: How Well Do You Know Your Flushometer and Faucet Parts?

Any facility engineer will tell you that Sloan flushometers and faucets are known for their long-term performance. One reason they’re so durable: They’re built with high-precision parts made from the highest quality materials.

Engineers also know they need to maintain Sloan components with genuine Sloan parts to keep them at top performance.

Sloan Manager of National Specialty Accounts Adam Kupec says, “If you want Sloan products to have longevity and operate with the expected quality, Sloan OEM parts are a necessity. These parts have been manufactured to the highest standard and specifically for use within Sloan’s products.”

Our new Parts Brochure makes it easy to stay current on the maintenance of your Sloan flushometers and faucets. It’s full of helpful information, including a detailed Maintenance Guide, which we used to create this fun quiz:
