Operating as usual
[04/08/21] Many commercial plumbing installations utilize CPVC pipe. What is it? CPVC is a thermoplastic chlorinated polyvinyl chloride pipe designed to carry hot and cold water. More affordable than copper, it’s more resistant to high heat than traditional PVC pipe.
[04/06/21] A good water heater should provide water that is hot, but not scalding. If water is running as hot as 145 degrees Fahrenheit can cause first degree burns with just five seconds of exposure to the skin. The ideal maximum temperature for a water heater should be in the range of 120-130 degrees F.
[04/01/21] To conserve water, rainwater storage tanks can be installed to collect rain runoff. This water can then be directed to irrigation, toilets, and urinals. Proper placement of the collection tanks is key, as is the piping system to utilize the water.
[03/30/21] Regular maintenance of your plumbing system can save money by catching problems before they become major repairs.
[03/25/21] Why hire a pro? Because we know plumbing. For example, the cement used for CPVC pipe fittings can be affected by rain and high humidity levels, which is why we make sure the cement is fully set before water enters the system.
[03/23/21] Could you imagine not being able to take a shower unless you were an athlete? That was actually the case in ancient Greece. The first showers were installed in Greek stadiums for competing athletes to wash off after performing for the large crowd.
[03/18/21] Do you ever worry that the plumbing installation crews you’ve worked with in the past won’t understand the complicated layout of your medical gas lines? Remember, we’ve got the experience necessary to help you ensure a proper installation.
[03/16/21] Not sure what size hot water heater you need for your home? This is generally going to depend on how many hot water outlets there are in your home. For a two-bath home, a 40 to 50 gallon heater is more than likely going to be sufficient.
[03/11/21] When you have complicated plumbing installation needs, you may find that it’s more difficult to find a plumbing company that truly seems to understand the scope of the project. Let’s talk about how we can help you make short work of even your most complex plumbing installations.
[03/09/21] If you've ever thought twice about using a public restroom, the process may soon get a little easier. In Japan, voice-activated flushing mechanisms are becoming more popular and widespread. Apparently, they're also bilingual, understanding as many as 30 different languages.
[03/04/21] There are many different benefits that can be achieved by commercial restroom upgrades. Not only are these types of upgrades designed to bring your facility into compliance with local regulations, but they can also introduce water- and money-saving technology into your facility.
[03/02/21] Plumbing contractors may choose to focus their work on a specific area. One example of an area a plumbing contractor might focus on is projects that involve new construction.
[02/25/21] LEED rating systems are different for each type of businesses, and plumbing installation needs to be adjusted accordingly. Ratings are industry specific and include schools, healthcare, retail, residential development, and commercial interiors. We know how to meet the requirements of each.
[02/23/21] Are you looking to save money on your next water bill? An easy way to do this is to purchase aerating and low-flow shower heads and faucets.
[02/18/21] The word “sewer” dates from the 1400s and is derived from the Middle French word "esseweur," "to drain off." Today, it refers to any pipe, conduit, or drain that is buried underground and designed to carry off waste water and matter.
[02/16/21] We understand some of you like to keep your hair long, but be careful around your shower drain. Long hair can drastically slow down the flow of pipes.
[02/11/21] One way to reduce your water bill for your commercial facility is to install waterless urinals. These units make use of a special drain insert that traps waste below a blue liquid and forms a barrier against sewer v***r escape.
[02/09/21] So what are threaded pipes when it comes to plumbing systems? These are metal pipes with a tapered “female” iron pipe thread. They can be connected to just about any type of plumbing pipe by using adapters that screw in and provide the correct fitting.
[02/04/21] Don't believe the myth that, if you don't live in a sunny climate, there's no savings available with a solar water heater. In fact, anyone in the U.S. can save at least 50 percent on their hot water heating bills with a solar water heater. However, it is true that, in sunnier climates, you can save more - as much as 90 percent, according to industry estimates.
[02/02/21] Unfortunately, plumbing work for commercial buildings can often be more costly than it is for residential structures. Rest assured that we’ll do everything possible to help you complete the work you need within your company’s budget.
[01/28/21] Since 1963, more than 5.3 million miles of copper plumbing tube have been installed in U.S. buildings! That’s equivalent to a coil wrapping around the Earth more than 200 times. The current installation rate now exceeds a billion feet per year.
[01/26/21] LEED certification requires careful planning and understanding of the fixtures being installed and how they garner points in any given situation. For example, waterless urinals in one building may not have as great a value as they would in another because urinal water usage accounts for too small a percentage of a building’s total water consumption.
[01/21/21] You might call us when you have a broken loo, but have you ever wondered where the term "loo" comes from? The common nickname comes from a phrase shouted by French maids emptying chamber pots: “Gardez l’eau.” If you were to translate that literally, it would mean, “Watch out for the water.”
[01/19/21] Do you ever worry that your medical gas lines could leak if they aren’t installed properly? When you need to ensure that your gas lines aren't putting your business at risk for fires or explosions, we’re always ready to ensure things are safely installed.
[01/14/21] Did you know that most water heaters come from the factory with high temperature settings? Feel free to lower the thermostat on your water heater. Most heaters are effective at 115°F.
[01/12/21] It’s important to remember that all the additional pipes in a commercial building can make its plumbing system more difficult to reconfigure during a renovation. When you need a plumbing contractor with the experience you can count on, we’re always here for you.
[01/07/21] Faucet history: A faucet that could control both hot and cold water with a single handle was invented by a man named Al Moen.
[01/05/21] Remodeling, renovation, and restoration projects for commercial and industrial sites may require completely new plumbing systems to meet code and make sure the project is completed on time and within budget requirements.
[12/31/20] Did you know pipes used for plumbing haven't always been made of metal? In the 1800s, both Boston and Montreal used wooden pipes; they were logs that were hollowed out and tapered at the ends.
[12/29/20] Copper piping is popular for commercial installations because it’s durable and versatile. Type K pipe, for example, can be used for water service, fire protection, solar heating, fuel oil, snow melting, compressed air, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, and vacuum applications.
[12/24/20] If you notice that your toilet is getting clogged more frequently, then it’s really time for a plumbing inspection to determine the root of the problem. This may be cause by a sewage line issue that needs to be resolved immediately to avoid a costly emergency situation.
[12/22/20] If you are the owner of a commercial building, it may be time to consider upgrading your plumbing system and fixtures. Ecological options like low-flush toilets, low-flow shower heads, and automatic shutoff faucets can end up saving you a great deal of money in the long run.
[12/17/20] Did you know that approximately 85 percent of all Americans have hard water? If you have a plumbing contractor install a water conditioner or softener in your home, that will negate the impacts of hard water and help you save money on your utility bill.
[12/15/20] If your area is prone to earthquakes and tremors, consider opting for copper pipe. The soldered joints are strong and resistant to separation, and under stress, copper tends to flex rather than snap, which helps prevent pipe breakage and leaks.
[12/10/20] It’s important to remember that installing a new sink can be more of a challenge than you first anticipated. When the new sink isn’t the exact dimensions as the old one, under the sink plumbing may need to be rearranged.
