Garbage Disposals repair
In-sink garbage disposals add convenience to the modern kitchen.
Located under the sink in-line with the drain, disposals consist of a motor-driven grinding device
which grinds up and disposes of foodscraps or leftovers safely down the drain and flushes them into the home's septic tank
or into the sewer system.
intuition,disposals work best when using cold water because potential grease congeals, getting
chopped up and washed away in small manageable pieces.
A garbage disposal can also eliminate the odors from organic waste decaying in the trash can and it
reduces the number of times the trash needs to be "taken out" - an environmental advantage which helps reduce the
amount of trash that gets sent to a landfill.
One note of caution when considering a garbage disposal: some sewer systems place limitations on the use of garbage
disposals, and septic systems must be sized to handle them.
Garbage disposal replacement takes just one hour, but sometimes quick repairs are possible.
Fix a TOILET ? How a toilet
When handle is pressed , the attached lever lift the flapper by a chain.
This opens the flush valve and releases the water through the rim into the toilet bowl, where gravity
siphons the existing bowl water down the trap. Once the tank is empty, the flapper drops back onto the flush valve drain seat
and the fill valve opens to release new water into the tank. A fill valve float rises with the water
until the preset refill level is reach.

Well ....An unattended old
drain pipe under the sink can leave your house looking like this.
It's important to check your bathroom and kitchen drain pipes once in a while, mostly if
they are metal.
Inspect under your sink to be sure everything is tight and working properly.
We recommend replacing your draining metal components after 10 years of use, they become rusted, fragile and they
crack and leak easily.

GFCI Installation is SAFETY FIRST
Many commercial and residential establishments use Ground Fault Circuit interrupters (GFCI's) to
prevent electrical shocks.
The way GFCI's work is by sensing when current traveling through the hot wire is not returning
via the neutral conductor.This prevents humans from conducting current to the ground.
also assist in identification of faults if the hot conductor contacts the frame of the enclosure a properly installed GFCI
outlet or circuit breaker can isolate the circuit in which the fault occurred and protect people from electrical shock.
Some of the requirements in residential and commercial properties
as stated in the National Electrical Code NEC-NFPA are the installations of GFCI outlets to any electrical power sources located
inside a 36" radious of any water source, also any exterior outlets, including the ones on your garage.
GFCI outlets and circuit breakers like those picture
here are relatively inexpensive, simple to install and mostly of the times Code required. Dont you think it's time for you
to take advantage of this easy home repair with the safety afforded by a GFCI ?
Programmable Thermostats installation
Programmable thermostats are hugely popular due to their energy saving benefits and your home improved
These thermostats save energy on utility bills by allowing you
to set your home temperatures according to different factors. If you’re looking to cut
back expenses, you will usually see the return on your programmable thermostat investment within one year.
When used properly, this device can save residents about $180 annually. Programmable thermostats are also a plus for the environmentally conscious because
they contain no mercury and are eco-friendly. Using less energy
helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy production. Programmable thermostats
can be set to adjust the temperature of a home according to a user's schedule. The temperature
can be set to change based on whether your home or not or whether you are asleep or awake
By allowing the occupant to program a specific schedule, the programmable thermostats turn
off the HVAC (heating/ventilating/and air-conditioning) systems when they are not needed. This way, the home is only conditioned
when it needs to be and the energy consumption of the home is reduced
Regardless of brand, even the most basic programmable thermostat will be a benefit to any home.
