Focus On Quality

The core of Lota’s business has been built around quality. From the incoming inspection of raw materials to our certified testing facilities, our commitment to quality is visible in everything that we do.

Our advanced mechanical test labs perform over 20 different tests to ensure consistency and quality, and we check for quality throughout every step of the manufacturing and assembly process. All faucets are water tested before they leave our facilities. Lota is ISO 9001 certified and has both IAPMO and CSA approved testing facilities on-site.
