Buying a new water heater can be a challenging and confusing process. The latest water heaters boast high technology and several smart features to help you monitor and control your appliance and increase efficiency.

(In English please!) There is a fitting where a hose can be attached to a home water supply (usually more than one) so watering the lawn and garden is simplified. The part that the hose screws onto is called a hose bib.  We received many "thank you"s for that tip, but now that we are in [...]

Everyone, depending on age and education, can feel confident doing handyman jobs around their home, condo, or business. One example is dealing with a slow or clogged drain. Most (both male and female) homeowners will take a quick drive to the local home improvement center, and look for something stronger than what is sold in the local grocery store next to bleach and dish detergent.

December 20th, 2017|Hot Water Heater, Tankless Water Heater|
