Yelp and Google

 Do you really trust in google and yelp or other sites reviews? 

1. Google and Yelp are paid by the companies for their advertising. Which is a good thing. But how Google and Yelp can certify a company? Thay cannot, and this is a real concern when you choose a certified company by those two sites.  Are not those companies being not trusty, but the trade certification is given only by the States or the Cities. 

2. For plumbing, in Illinois, the certification can be done only by IDPH, City of Chicago. Google and Yelp claiming their certification is a fake paid under the advertising.

3. Yelp and Google have multiple phone # which harassing the owners with calls to certify and verify the existence of their companies. 

4. Yelp and Google impose their sponsors to people for doing their projects. Which is ok but is fair, too? 

5. If you will choose the contractor for Yelp and Google probably the best way is to go on lower pages to find good ones, with good prices and being more professionals. We do this when we need subcontractors, we go to page 5, 7, 10 or lower. And we didn't do wrong.

DOE Proposes New Energy Efficiency Standards for Water Heaters to Save Americans More Than $11 Billion Annually on Utility Bills

Being a while ago!

 It has been some time from the last post. It has been hard. Among daily hard work, we have been in the dreaming vacation, EBC. The entire month of May we have been in Nepal for our daughter wedding at EBC. Unbelievable month, unbelievable time spent, unbelievable nature, and unbelievable Himalayan Mountains. Thank you for people of Nepal, for Sherpas, for Ian Taylor Trekking our host. 

Here are some pictures and soon a short movie.

Britannica Online- Plumbing

 We share this link Plumbing | construction | Britannica. Interesting about what Britannica Encyclopedia has to say about Plumbing. 

The most important fact is that the society exploded along the improvement of plumbing.

High installation

 We just installed 30 gallon electrical water heater above the dropped ceiling in the restroom of commercial building. Lot of safety protection, very tiny space.

The question is why the water heater was not installed initially at ground level behind the restroom,  totally empty?

Sometimes weird things happen!

Above 33F

 Is that time of the year, again, when is neither winter nor spring.  The temperature are rising, falling in a Brownian movement.  Is that time when the ground is contracting and diluting a lot. 

Also is the time when the roots are looking for food to prepare one of the most beautiful phenomenon in the world,  the blossoms. 

So as a plumbing matter is that time when is necessary to have the main sewer line cleared. The clearing will give you peace in mind the basement will not be flooded when the spring rains will come. Also don't forget the clearing should be if possible by camera inspection to check the integrity of the line.
