What Makes PEX different from Metals ?

Posted 06-01-2009 at 12:15 PM by gtglobe

PEX has finally snatched the primary spot of top plumbing materials from copper and brass. Right now this cross-linked polyethylene has created inroads to the homes and hearts of common people. The reason behind its successful capturing of the market can be attributed to a few factors. Let us take a look at them.

Copper and brass both are metals and that is why they run a high risk of corrosion. The risk of corrosion gets starker when you use water pipes that are made of either of...

When do i drain my septic tank?

Posted 06-01-2009 at 05:45 AM by faucetman886

I wrote a blog a few weeks ago “The care and feeding of the family septic tank”, but while pretty thorough a thread I ran across over the weekend has triggered a thought about the need for more info on how often and how to tell that your septic system needs to be drained and how it’s done. The writer was concerned because he had lived in the house for 10 years, mostly alone, and had never had his tank drained and was worried that some big truck was going to have to make its way into his back yard...

Before I begin you should always keep on hand a plunger, a simple 25’ auger, some liquid drain cleaner and the phone number...

My bowl runneth over, now what do i do?

Posted 05-26-2009 at 04:54 AM by faucetman886

A discussion group forum posting over the weekend reminded me of a problem that my ex-wife and I had many years ago. Well we had a lot of problems that why she is my ”EX” but this blog is not about marital advice because on that I’m no expert, just ask her! The problem I am talking about was what happens when your toilet bowl over flows due to a clog or mechanical malfunction. I have blogged before about how to unclog a toilet bowl as well as what some of the causes of clogs and mechanical...

Buying a new house? Why have a building inspection?

Posted 05-20-2009 at 05:19 AM by faucetman886

With the state of today’s economy and the vast number of foreclosures affecting the marketplace, now can be the time to step out in faith and make your dreams of home ownership a reality. The advantage, today, is the tremendous values that can be had in houses these days. I saw a news article recently showing homes in an area of Florida where homes that had sold, 3 years ago, for in excess of $300,000 were now on the market for $75,000. A great buy, maybe, but possibly a “money pit”. Homes in...
