We feature a wide variety of fine antique and reproduction fixtures and accessories to enhance the turn-of-the-century decor and help create that special feeling of golden days gone by. Our policy is dedication to providing personalized service and prompt delivery, as we have since 1976. Bathroom Machineries, a division of Domestic Environmental Alternatives, is a well established specialty plumbing and supply store located in the historic Mother Lode town of Murphys, California.

Many items are built, machined, and/or finished right on the premises as they are ordered. Many custom and antique items may not be available for same-day pickup. We recommend that you call ahead to check availability, especially if you are planning on visiting on the weekend when our workshops are closed.
Though we stock about 90% of the items on our website, some items, including new pedestal sinks, new toilets, china shelves, Rohl faucets, 24-series basins, and new clawfoot tubs are sent factory-direct and/or may not be in-stock in all colors, finishes, or styles.
High and Low tank toilets are assembled and water tested as they ordered. If you wish to will-call one, you’ll need to call ahead if you want to take it home the same day.
