Hello and Happy November! Thank you to everyone who signed up for the newsletter in October! We're simply thrilled to have you join us once a month to read about all this plumbing jazz. Also, thank you to everyone who coerced-er, I mean, persuaded your coworkers and business associates to sign up! 

And there is always room for more subscribers, so if there is anyone else you might know who is interested in signing up, we'll make you the same deal as last month: if someone signs up based on your recommendation, tell us who, and we will send you an extra $5 Starbucks card.

As always, here are your "I don't have time for this" highlights:
  • New MTI website
  • Still lots of spiffs!
  • Gatco 10-Minute "Expert" training
Now on to the newsletter.


Kiwami Collection CEC Update | More great CEC news from TOTO! Can you stand it? The Kiwami collection has been added to the list of TOTO faucets that comply with the California Energy Commission 1.2 GPM flow rates. Download the product bulletin here.

TOTO Washlet Studio | Did you know that TOTO is in the process of opening a non-retail Washlet Studio in San Francisco? Some skeptics out there aren't convinced they would enjoy owning a Washlet (as if!), but coming soon, you'll have a place to send your clients to try out each Washlet model. If you want to stay updated on the progress, like the Studio's Facebook page.


MTI'S New Website | You simply must take a moment to see MTI's snazzy new website! MTI announced that this new design features enhanced functionality for product search and comparison, more intuitive navigation, more product info, customer input and request functionality, and improved mobile responsiveness. Check it out:

New MTI Basics List Price Sheet | MTI has released a new Basics list price sheet. Download here.


Digital Shower System Training | If the only thing that's stopped you from selling a Steamist Digital Shower System is a lack of training, today is your lucky day. Take a look at this training brochure, schedule a training with your favorite Western salesperson, and get to selling these modern marvels of technology and design. We're pretty sure your clients will love these.

Spare Parts Price List | Need to know the current price of some Steamist spare parts? Of course you do, and we've got you covered. Download the Excel file here.


Spiff | Did you know that our Oliveri Rewards program has been running for years now? Between the profitable rewards and the quick check turnaround, it's pretty darn popular. E-mail for more details.



Collection Highlight: Levanto | When you see the minimalist and classic design of these vanities, you might be surprised that we consider Levanto to be one of Villeroy & Boch's most unique collections. What makes it unique, you may ask? Excellent question. The unique design element is the stunning optional LED lighting that surrounds the vanity top, providing not just additional light for safer navigation in the dark bathroom, but also eye-catching beauty that gives the vanity top the illusion of floating above the drawers. Check out all the options here.


10-Minute "Expert" | Oh, snap! It's the 10-Minute "Expert" training brochure you've been waiting for: the Gatco Edition. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll learn all about Gatco's spectacular product offering. Ok, probably not the first two things, but you will earn a $5 Starbucks card, which is almost as good. Check it.

Mirror Spiff | There's still plenty of time to earn Rewards by selling Gatco's gorgeous mirrors. E-mail for more details.


Current Carrier/Bowl Compatibility List | Geberit always has the most interesting news, don't they? The headlines practically write themselvezzzz... Oh! Excuse me, I must have nodded off. In all seriousness, this is very good info, because with the current number of compatible bowl brands, it's easier than ever to sell the best and most reliable carrier in the industry with every project. Here's that handy list

Tom's Tech Tip: 10-Minute "Expert" (Gatco Edition)

Well, it’s been a few months now of us sharing/inflicting the 10-Minute “Expert” series with you through our Tech Tip feature. Did you know that each brochure was written, with some heavy editing by our marketing department, by a different member of our know-it-all sales team? That’s right! Each sales person volunteered (or was mandatorily assigned, depending on whose story you believe) to share their knowledge with you, our valuable customers. I just love working with such a knowledgable team.

These brochures were designed to help you learn or relearn all about these brands as efficiently and quickly as possible. We intend to keep them up-to-date, so please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts on what works or doesn’t work and we will incorporate your suggestions (if they are any good) in the updates.

In the meantime, earn yourself a Starbucks card by answering the following question about the Gatco Edition brochure.

Question: According to the brochure, which collections offer light sconces?

Send the correct answer to by November 25, 2016, and receive a $5 Starbucks card. $5 not quite enough for a latte and a scone? Talk one of your associates into signing up for our newsletter, and you’ll earn another $5 card.

Thank you for reading our newsletter!
