If you intend to use natural gas in your home or business, you will need to enlist the services of an experienced and licensed gasfitter. They will help to ensure that your system is hooked up properly and, crucially, is configured so that all of your appliances work properly and with due deference to safety. What will their work entail?
To begin with, the fitter will analyse your property and will take a very close look at the building design and architectural plans.
If you would love your office and the activities that take place in it to have less of a harmful effect on the environment, you should ask a plumber who has a background in commercial plumbing to carry out the following two tasks for you.
Ask them to replace your plastic, unplumbed water cooler with a plumbed-in metal drinking fountain.
Many offices have unplumbed water coolers that feature large plastic water bottles which need to be replaced regularly.
If you're building an assisted living unit on your retirement village, then you need a slightly different design to your regular units. The people who move into your assisted care homes may need extra help with daily tasks.
While your staff will provide some of this help, you can make things easier for future residents by adding fixtures and fittings that are designed for older people with mobility issues. For example, easy height toilets may be worth considering.
A hot water system is essential at all times of the year, but in winter, a reliable supply of hot water is particularly important. Here are some simple tips and checks to make sure your supply won't fail at the time you need it most.
Check your hot water tank
Make sure your tank is in good condition. You should look for any rust marks or other signs of corrosion on the outside of the heater.
Plumbing leaks in pipes that are hidden away in your home's structure are hard to spot. You can't see these pipes, so you might not detect problems until the leak causes significant damage to your home. If you've been through this before, then you know that this is an expensive fix. As well as getting to the pipe itself and fixing it, you also have to make good any damage the leak has caused.
