3 Topics You Should Know Regarding Plumbing Today

I have attended many trade-related continuing education courses over the years and have read something trade-related every night for 25 years. Most of my management team, however, has no experience or training in the trades. It’s just a different skill set — leading and managing people, as opposed to knowing the trades. I was fortunate enough to be trained in both worlds, as I received a Bachelor of Science in business administration and finance right here at UNLV. Q: What made you decide to support the educational component of the air-conditioning industry? How has being involved in that aspect affected you personally? A:I’m a believer in giving back to the industry that has done so much for my family and me, and it has been a rewarding experience. I have made trade education one of my personal missions. Helping people with education can have a big, sustaining impact on their lives, their families and the industry.

While this material is in liquid form when it’s initially poured into the disposal, it congeals into a viscous sludge as it cools. The FOG then sticks to the walls of the disposal chamber, as well as the walls of the drain pipe. This can gum up the impeller, as well as clog the drain. Don’t pour FOG down the garbage disposal if you want to avoid these issues. Throw it away, instead. That’s a good tip. What else should I avoid putting down my drain? Never put beans, rice, pasta and bread down the drain. These are like sponges and when saturated with water, this food material will expand and can cause a backup.

Just trying to get to the leak is a job in itself not mention the customer never empties out the cabinet before I arrive. I find electrical tape, duct tape, wooded supports trying to hold everything together and it all eventually fails. When I work with thin gauge tubular waste pipes I like to use either the supplied rubber or beveled nylon washers. I’ll apply some mega lock pipe joint compound the to male end threads, and after I make the up the nuts with my channel lock pliers or pipe wrench. they’re pretty darn secure. I test for leaks by filling and draining the sink a few times and all is good to go. Right? Not so fast! It doesn’t happen often but on some jobs I ultimately end up getting a callback because the pipe came loose or fell which frankly could not have happened unless stuff was getting thrown around.

1. Use a timer for showers. Not only will this help save water by limiting everyone to 10 minutes or less, it can also help you keep everyone focused and on time in the mornings, or at bedtime. Replace your existing shower head with a water-saving model for even greater savings. 2. Reuse your towels. When you get out of the shower, you’re clean, right? Instead of tossing towels into the hamper after each use, hang them up to dry and use them damage restoration again tomorrow. Buy robe hooks or re-purpose an old coat rack to hang in the bathroom, and designate a hook for everyone; most younger children can hang a towel on a hook much more easily Gordontheplumber.com Winfield IL than trying to fold and hang one over a traditional bar (which usually results in a mess of bunched-up towels everywhere.) 3. Be mindful of your other laundry. Those jeans from yesterday?
