When you engage in the Waterworks experience, you gain access to a rich heritage of expertise, service and innovation unlike any other. In 1925, Samuel Grogins started a plumbing supply business in Danbury, Connecticut devoted to the best mechanical offerings available. In 1978, Sam’s daughter, Barbara, and her husband Robert Sallick set out to create a revolution in bathing, bringing incredible visual appeal and impeccable performance to what had often been an overlooked and underserved area of the home. When their son Peter joined the company in 1993, Waterworks made the leap to become a full-service industry leader uniquely focused on the needs of our clients.
Waterworks creates unparalleled products with a commitment to craftsmanship on every level, from designing product, to selecting the highest quality materials, to utilizing artisanal factories with generations of experience.
We work with in-house designers and prestigious collaborators across a range of inspirations, from Edwardian elegance to organic beauty, to create a product assortment that comfortably meets the needs of our clients while continually pushing the aesthetic envelope. In our quest for the complete bath experience, every detail and every facet is lovingly considered. Our focus on design translates into a world of products that you can be certain are first in terms of integrity, innovation, and style.
