And the Oscar goes to...Sign of the Crab

Sign of the Crab (also known as Strom Plumbing) was recently awarded IAPMO approval for their cast iron clawfoot tubs and clawfoot tub faucets. IAPMO's approval doesn't carry the same glamour as the Academy Awards' Oscar but if you are in the market for a clawfoot tub or faucet, IAPMO certification should provide you with confidence in quality and reliability.

IAPMO (pronounced I-AP-MO) is an abbreviation for the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials. For over 80 years, IAPMO has been protecting the public's health and safety by developing and overseeing standards. This organization established the Uniform Plumbing Code that most cities use as a basis for developing their own plumbing codes. For consumers, IAPMO approval means that IAPMO independently tested and inspected the manufacturer's products to verify compliance to codes and standards.

Sign of the Crab cast iron clawfoot tubs are some of the few cast iron tubs that have received the distinction of IAPMO approval. The IAPMO approved Sign of the Crab thermostatic clawfoot tub faucets lead the industry in anti-scald technology. The anti-scald feature guarantees that your shower is no Hurt Locker and the pressure balance valve provides a constant temperature to ensure that flushing a toilet while you shower does not turn you into an Avatar blue person.

While IAPMO approval shouldn't be the only factor in your choice of a clawfoot tub or clawfoot tub shower, it is Precious and worthy of consideration. If you are Up in the Air about the significance of IAPMO approval, perhaps Sign of the Crab's 30 years of experience will influence your selection of a cast iron tub. Shop 4 Classics is proud to offer the complete catalog of Sign of the Crab's IAPMO approved products.
