SG isn't the only company with a cap water line allowable. It's a Fannie requirement and Wells also has an allowable for the water heater and washer connections so 3 lines per property.

MFS supply is who we usually use, but we also have a really good relationship with them. US Hardware is another one. I think their lockboxes are slightly cheaper than MFS.

water caps are a waste of time if the property has already been winterized, but if you want threaded caps, go to home depot and stock up on the plastic ones. They are 2/$1 and in the garden section with the hose supplies, but are hard to find in the winter months. No need to order that stuff from places like MFS Supply.

That's what I usually do, or look for a lot on eBay, sometimes they're cheaper than HD. As for locks, I order enough at a time that I can invest some time in checking all of the sites to see who has a sale going. Usually it ends up in multiple orders all just high enough to get to a discount threshold. Depending on the month, I could have boxes coming from Carrdan, BargainLocks, PPM, US Hardware, BuyLockbox, etc... As a point of contention, I refuse to buy from MFS, because I refuse to do anything with Safeguard, and they own the joint.
