Although boilers are older technology, they are making a comeback because of their efficiency and sustainability. Boilers create hot water that can be used as part of a radiant heating system simply to supply household hot water or hot water for a large building, or even to turn a turbine to create electricity.
Technology is our friend when it comes to cleaning out drains. One of the niftiest things to come around in this modern age are those handy little cameras on the end of a power cable.
It is a good idea to give your drains a yearly checkup. One way to do this is to place a packet of non-toxic dye in one of the intake areas. Then check to see if the water is flowing through to the large outlet area.
Like many utilities, plumbing has developed an increased focus on efficiency and minimal use of energy. For example, at one time, gas hot water heaters had a continuously burning pilot light. Now they are more likely to have an electrical igniter to light a gas burner.
Water heaters that have tanks are more likely to operate at optimal efficiency if they have periodic service visits. These often include flushing out the tank to remove calcification and sludge that can take up space inside the tank, thereby diminishing the efficiency of the water heater.
Perhaps one of the most frustrating and irritating plumbing failures is a sewer line back-up or blockage. It might begin small, with bad odors in a basement drain, or a sink that drains from one side to the other instead of flowing away, as it should.
If you are building a new house or business, you might be interested in perimeter drain tile installation. By putting your drain tiles in at the same time as your foundation or baseball walls, you will be getting a jump start, all on protecting your home and your landscaping.
