In an effort to improve customer service, ASL implemented a feature commonly referred to as EZCodes. EZCodes are a short-hand, simple way of referring to common products (usually pipe and fittings) that make them simple to find. By using EZCodes our wholesale counter staff could quickly key orders for common fittings without needing to memorize long, complicated part numbers or search for them in the computer.
With a little practice, ASL Online users can take advantage of this useful feature to quickly find common products in our on-line catalog.
EZCodes are made up of a product's dimensions followed by it's type. For example, the EZCode for a 1/2 Copper 90° Elbow is: 12C90. As you can see the EZCode contains only numbers and letters. All other characters (like the "/" in "1/2") are dropped.
Here are a few common examples:
|1/2" Galvanized 90°||12G90|
|1-1/4" x 1" x 1" Black Tee||11411BT|
|2-1/2 CSA Schedule 40 PVC Pipe||212CSA|
|1/2 Type K Hard Copper Tube||12K|
Not all products have EZCodes, but those that do show them on the product's screen:
Some of the common EZCode fitting types are as follows:
|S15||System 15 PVC|
|S||SDR11 Sewer PVC|
It is important to note that no two products can share the same EZCode, additionally, EZCodes may share characters with descriptions of other products. For these reasons, it is important to assure the correct product is selected.
