A Guide On The Type of Heaters At Home

Posted by | Blog, Water Heater Installation & Maintenance | No Comments

type of heaters at homeHot water heaters are essential plumbing appliances we can’t live without. These appliances provide us hot water that we use not only for cooking or drinking but also in our daily activities such as when taking a bath, cleaning the house, washing our clothes and what-nots. Indeed, water heaters are worthy investments that we can take advantage of for 10 years and maybe even longer. However, we cannot deny that some of us fail to care for and maintain our hot water heaters. And because of neglect and lack of maintenance, they will sooner or later malfunction until they are no longer operable. When that happens, you should choose a new heating system that isn’t only capable of providing your hot water demands but is also durable and efficient. Here’s a guide on the types of water heaters.

I. Storage

Water heaters are either tankless or tank-type. A tank-type water heater is the conventional heating system that most of us grew up with. It has a large tank that stores water for heating. This works by releasing hot water through the hot water supply line at the top of the tank. The hot water will be replaced by cold water which will pass through the cold water supply line at the bottom of the tank.

A tankless water heater, meanwhile, doesn’t store water at all. It only heats water when you turn on your hot water tap. In other words, this type of heating system generates less standby heat loss and thus cutting down your energy consumption, too. Tankless water heaters also come in two kinds: 1) whole-house heater or 2) point-of-use heater.

A whole-house tankless water heater provides hot water to multiple fixtures in your house. A point-of-use tankless water heater on the other hand, provides hot water to the fixture where it is hooked to.

II. Fuel Source

Water heaters may be powered by electricity or gas. Here’s a list of the choices you have when it comes to fuel type.

  1. Electricity
  2. Fuel Oil
  3. Geothermal Energy
  4. Natural Gas
  5. Propane
  6. Solar Energy

Tips When Choosing A Water Heater

When choosing a water heater for your home, you have to consider fuel type, its availability and cost. Is electricity more suitable for you based on your needs and finances? You also have to consider the size or capacity of the water heater. Do you have a small space at home? Can you go for something big and bulky? Another factor that you have to mull over is energy efficiency. You surely do not want to pay high utility bills just so you could have a consistent supply of hot water. How much do you think can you allocate for the water heater’s operating cost? Finally, you of course have to think about the heating system’s price. How much money are you willing to spend for this appliance?

Septic Tank Grease Traps And Their Importance

Posted by | Blog, Septic Tank Care | No Comments

septic tank grease trapWe have always talked about not pouring grease down the drain. Oil and grease solidify at low temperatures and that’s just what’s going to happen if they stay too long inside the pipes. As you can see, the temperature inside the pipes is generally cooler.  And for that very reason, these waste substances stick to the walls of the pipes and result to clogs. You’ll know what to expect next. You won’t be able to use your plumbing fixtures like you used to. Your daily routine will be hampered. You’ll be greatly inconvenienced. Fortunately, there are such things as grease traps.

Grease traps? What are they?

Grease traps are also called as grease interceptors. These are efficient plumbing devices that are designed to block the access of grease, wax, oil, fact and other types of debris into your home’s septic tank or the public sewer where your house is hooked to. These waste materials are prime culprits for clogs and that’s already one good reason why they shouldn’t get into the system. Aside from preventing clogs, grease interceptors are also designed to filter out the greasy elements and separate them from the wastewater. This way, your septic tank or the public sewer won’t get filled with grease and just deal with sewage.

Do you need grease traps in your property?

Yes, building codes mandate the installation of grease traps to guarantee that sewage will be pre-treated prior to its entry in the septic tank or sewer system. These devices are not only required among residential structures but also in commercial establishments as well.

Grease Trap Maintenance

To ensure that the grease trap functions optimally, it also requires consistent care and cleaning. Here’s how professionals clean the traps.

  1. The grease interceptor’s lids will be removed using a crow bar or any similar tool. This should be done carefully to guarantee that the gaskets located under the grease traps’ lids won’t get damaged.
  2. When the covers are removed, their components will be removed, too. The plumbers need access to the very containers.
  3. Once the lid and its components are detached, the plumber will make use of a measuring stick or a wooden dowel that will be inserted into the grease trap. The stick or dowel will measure the amount of grease, fat, oil and wax that the trap has intercepted and stored in its container.
  4. The measurement will then be recorded because it will be used as a reference in the future, in the event of another cleaning service or maintenance appointment.
  5. After the measurement is taken, the liquid substances inside the trap will be scooped out with a bucket.
  6. Afterward, the solid waste materials will be removed, too. They will be transferred to another container (leak-free) and then disposed properly.
  7. When the traps have been emptied, they will be thoroughly cleaned with soap and water.
  8. After cleaning, they will be re-assembled.

Posted by | Blog, Commercial Plumbing | No Comments

commercial plumbing contractorsIf you have a business with a physical location such as a restaurant, an office or a store, you should never hesitate in hiring commercial plumbing contractors. While you can save money on DIY projects, you cannot disregard the benefits of hiring experienced, licensed and insured plumbers. They have spent so much time taking on a plumbing course; passed the examination to get their licenses and honed their skills through years of experience. In other words, they’ll surely get the job done with excellence while ensuring that your place of business remains safe.

Common Plumbing Services You’ll Need For Your Business

1. Plumbing Installations

If you’re in the process of constructing a new structure for your business, you should only rely on trusted plumbing professionals to install the plumbing system for you. They’ll ensure that your clean water lines and your drainage lines are laid out correctly. They’ll also guarantee compliance with local building and plumbing codes. This way, you’ll acquire the necessary permit to proceed with the construction or renovation. Remember, appliances like garbage disposals and water heaters should be set up properly to prevent accidents and damages in your property. Other plumbing components such as backflow preventers are only installed, inspected and maintained by certified plumbing professionals.

2. Remodeling

If, on the other hand, you’re doing business in an old structure, licensed plumbers need to check the plumbing system first. They have to inspect the drainage lines and make sure that the sewage will be disposed properly. They will also check if the septic tank is still in good condition or if the property is connected to a clog-free sewer line. If there are problems with the old plumbing pipes and fixtures, they should be remodeled. And by remodeling, we mean that plumbers may need to change the pipes, the fixtures or completely move the plumbing.

3. Sewer and Drain Maintenance and Repair

Another plumbing service that you’ll need for your business is sewer maintenance and / or repair. Damaged, clogged or broken sewer and drain pipes are common issues that every property owner should attend to right away. Sewer pipes are often neglected and are, in fact, only paid attention to when problems arise. Don’t let backups and clogged drainage systems ruin your business. Hire licensed plumbers to guarantee that your sewer lines are at tip-top shape.

5. Fixture Installation and Repair

Fixtures wear out and get totally damaged in the end. Faucet threads get loose. Toilets clog and its parts will sooner or later get worn out, too. Sinks turn ugly. These should all be replaced especially if your place of business allows customers to make use of the bathroom. Or, in the case of restaurants, the kitchen plays a major role.
