Bloomingdale Plumbing Contractor Debuts New Website Explaining Importance of Backflow Devices

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 12, 2013 -- Consumers turn their faucets on every day and assume safe drinking water is immediately available. However, when water pressure fails or is reduced, contaminated water from the ground, storage, or other systems can be drawn into the water supply.

To prevent this occurrence, backflow devices are needed. For example, lawn irrigation systems need a vacuum breaker backflow preventer to protect against lawn and pesticide chemicals being drawn in from the lawn and back into the drinking water supply. The University of Southern California Foundation for Cross –Connection Control and Hydraulic Research conducted a study to determine the degree of protection against backflow that is present in today’s homes. They found that nearly 10 percent of residences had direct health hazard cross-connections.

Evenflow Plumbing Announces New Discount For Oakland Cleanout Installation and Mock Sewer Testing

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2013 -- Evenflow Plumbing is now offering a new discount for the installation of an Oakland sewer cleanout and a mock sewer test for $675.

In most cases other plumbing companies will tell homeowners that since they don’t have a clean out that they need a new sewer line.

Slant/Fin Helps Reheat Long Island During And After Sandy

Greenvale, NY (PRWEB) January 10, 2013 -- For over half a century, Slant/Fin has called Long Island home. As with virtually everyone else in the New York metro area and New Jersey, everyone employed there was in some way affected by Hurricane Sandy. Some suffered damage to their homes and cars, and almost all were without power at home for a week or more.

Slant/Fin’s Greenvale, Long Island facility was one of many on the Island that went cold and dark; however, as one of America’s top manufacturers of gas, oil, and electric boilers — and the largest in baseboard heating equipment — that didn’t stop their people from working almost around the clock to fill the swift and tremendous demand for their products. Using flashlights and later generator power, they filled orders not only for established customers, but for many in other storm-ravaged areas, as well.

Rightway Waterproofing is Now Available For Water Management in Philadelphia, PA

(PRWEB) January 10, 2013 -- More homes than people think are susceptible to water damage. Just because the home isn’t in a “Flood Prone Area” does not mean that the home is safe from water damage, especially if the home has a basement. For this reason, Rightway Waterproofing in NJ is now available for water management to help stop a problem before it occurs in Philadelphia, PA.

People tend to know or ask about the water table in the area where their home is. All homes have a water table underneath their home; it is the level at which people will hit water when digging underground. The water table rises every time it rains. This water starts to put pressure on the foundation of the home and can lead to damage in the form of seepage which can crack walls or floors, and can eventually lead to the weakening of the homes foundation.
