7 Topics You Should Know Regarding Plumbing

There’s plenty of advice out there on how often you should clean your drains, most of it conflicting. Search long enough and you can find articles suggesting quarterly, monthly, or even weekly cleanings. However, we think that the monthly option is the best, mainly because it can become part of a regular routine without presenting a major hassle. We all know doing something weekly can become such a pain that we avoid doing it, whether it’s a weekly report or a trip to the gym. A weekly task can be something you enjoy and look forward to, or it might just be one more pain you have to deal with (We’d venture a guess that cleaning the drains would fall into that second category!). And, if it becomes a pain, you’re far more likely to “forget” to do it or deliberately put it off—which defeats the purpose entirely. Quarterly cleanings aren’t exactly ideal, either. Instead of frequent cleanings that become a pain to do, you end up with the opposite problem: it’s something you don’t do frequently enough so you forget to do it. Other issues come up and interfere with your schedule, so you let cleaning the drains slide. The next thing you know, a year has gone by and you’re taking a shower in ankle deep water because the drain is backed up. Both of these situations are problems you need to be aware of when setting a schedule for cleaning your drains.

Reworking a chopped-up bath creates a spacious and sunny retreat A crowded bath can be downright scary. When Jim and Jane Breihan moved into their 1996 ranch, in Geneva, Illinois, the master bath felt so cramped, dark, and dated that Jane refused to use it. “I just closed the doors and went to the guest bathroom,” she says. No wonder: Between a giant corner tub, two hulking vanities, a massive walk-in closet, and a separate toilet enclosure, there was little room to maneuver. So the couple enlisted the help of local Gordontheplumber.com Addison IL Dupage County design firm The Kitchen Studio of Glen Ellyn to bring the master bath some much-needed airiness. To maximize the space, everything had to go—especially the extra walls that broke up the room. The new layout allows or an expansive shower, complemented by a charming claw-foot tub. Two vanities were replaced with one that boasts six drawers and a marble counter with plenty of deck space. And with vintage-style paneled wainscoting, a basketweave tile floor, and polished-nickel finishes, the new bath has a timeless look. “Now,” Jane says, “the guest bath is just for guests.”

Over the last couple of years, we have seen a lot of improvements in technology . For example, voice search alone, has grown exponentially as the technology improved and became more accurate. What does this technology mean for your SEO strategy? It means that not only do you have to consider traditional search terms and phrases, but also the terms people use when they speak a command into Siri or Google. Since most of these searches happen on mobile devices, including location-based keywords is important. It is also noted that most voice search contain more words in the query. This isn’t surprising, considering the ease with which we have conversations with technology these days. This changes things a little bit for your SEO strategy. Long tale keywords are going to become more relevant, as voice search continues to grow, and more people start utilizing voice active assistants like Alexa. Social media trends are also important to consider when it comes to your SEO strategy.

You are here: Home / How-To-Fix Videos / Gas Water Heater Pilot Light Video You hop into the shower ready for the day ahead and realize you have no hot water. Now What? Well if you own a gas water heater chances are that A. your heater could be leaking or B. your Gas Water Heater Pilot Light is out. The pilot light in a gas water heater is made possible by either of two devices. In older water heaters it’s called a thermocouple which is a heat sensing bulb attached to a copper capillary which connects to the fuel control valve. It produces a small electrical signal (millivolts) which allows the pilot to stay lit. In newer style water heaters the manufacturers will provide either the traditional thermocouple or a pilot generator which is a larger sized sensing bulb and instead if a copper capillary tube, they actually use shielded light gauged wires which connect to the fuel control valve and again allow the pilot to stay lit. In older water heaters thermocouples have a tendency to burn out which is not unusual, but in some cases, it may have moved out of position keeping it from sensing the heat generated by the pilot light. I’ve actually seen new water heaters having pilot outage issues because the thermocouple moved out of position while in transit.
