Sewers really are the unseen champions of our homes. They work tirelessly to keep contaminants a safe distance from our water system, while also being convenient and out of sight.

February 28th, 2022

Wow, now that sounds like a horror movie we’d like to see in theaters. Just make sure you give us the credit next time you decide to write the screenplay for the Invasion of the Tree Roots! All jokes aside, a tree root invasion is just as bad as you think it is.

Don’t Insulate Your Water Heater on Your Own

February 14th, 2022

The type of material and the composition of the coverings can also make a pretty big difference, so you’ll want to make sure you’re doing your research.
