Using Filters & the Compare Tool Video
Find the exact item you need by filtering on product category, manufacturer, by product attributes. Plus use the Compare Tool to see product attributes side-by-side on up to 6 products. Watch the video above to learn how to use Filters and Compare.
Hello and welcome to the Cooney Brothers How To Video Series. In this video we will cover how to use the Filter function on the website to find the exact product that meets your needs.
On the home page and the Shop All Products page, you will find a list of all the top level product categories available on the website.
After selecting one, you will be presented with a second level of categories from which you can narrow your product, as well as a list of filters on the left side. From there you can narrow down by Brand or Manufacturer, as well as product categories.
When you get to the lowest category level, you will be presented with attributes for filtering. Depending on product, these can include things like Size, material, connection type, fitting type, and measuring range.
Let's walk through an example:
Jennifer is a buyer for Quality Manufacturing Corp. Her maintenance manager asked her to buy a 1/2 inch FNPT brass ball valve but didn't give her any additional information. Upon arriving on the website, she selected the Valve & Actuators product category, and then clicked on the Ball Valve category, where she is presented with over 2600 results! From here, Jennifer can start to drilling down using the Filters found on the left side. She first chooses to filter on Body material, selecting brass.
This narrows her results down to 98, and then Size as 1/2 in which narrows her results down to 13. Applying the final filter for FNPT brings her results down to 3!
At this point, she can look at the short deceptions provided to or use the Compare Tool to look ALL the attributes of the three items side by side.
After selecting the check boxes and hitting the Compare button, she is presented with a list showing each item's attributes side-by-side among the items. Immediately, she can see the differences between them.
She makes a quick call to the maintenance manager who tells her to buy the one with the 316 stainless steel ball.
Filtering is a quick and easy way to find the exact product you need. Thank you for watching our How To Filter Video.
