Plumbers: ready in position for another day on the battlefield of pipe work, armed with their trusty wrench. Unfortunately, as soon their first assignment starts, you know what’s coming..the shirts begin to slowly creep up due to all the bending, and before you know it, you have crack. The traditional prime time for buttcracks, even,…

The slow-closing toilet seat: as close to real magic as possible for humans. Recently, we purchased a new seat for our toilets, and our quality of life has improved dramatically. Laugh, but that’s no exaggeration. Lets talk: It’s late at night, perhaps early morning, and you need to do your business. In the darkness, you…

Firepits are the bomb: make sure yours doesn’t act like one. Increasingly we see interest in the installation of outdoor fire pits. They can add great value to your home and life.

Ever sit on a handicap toilet? Come on, admit it. Feels like you’re sitting on a throne. Yet it’s only 1-2″ higher than a conventional toilet. Oh, the difference an inch makes.

Along with making sure your pump is operating properly, it’s a good strategy to make sure your pump discharges where you need. Otherwise, your pump could be working against you, not with you. Is the water flowing away from your home? Is there plenty of area for it to flow away and keep flowing? If…

  Keep your sump pump from working overtime next fall by protecting your home today. It’s a common trade secret that prevention costs you less as a consumer than waiting for an emergency to call. When the summer heat comes, the dirt around your foundation has a tendancy to contract, thus pulling away from the…

When is it too much to believe? A plumbing company boasts they’re “the cleanest plumber in town”. Really? A plumbing company says you can trust us with your keys. Really? They better, don’t you think? No, lets call the company we can’t trust. A plumbing company claims to be the best in town. And how…
