We had a Richmond model # 6G40-32PF3, manufacture date 17 May 2017 installed by a plummer on May 28, 2016. On September 1, 2017 we noticed water on the floor, the tank was leaking between the metal outside shell and insulation just above the gas valve. A stream of water going onto the pilot light. I called technical service department and they claim it is out of warranty because the building it was in is used for residential and business. When over 90% of the water is residential, they will not cover the warranty even though there are 12 year warranties on many of their products, since when is a water heater especially a gas or propane water heater not covered even if it is in a residential/business. This is not good practice on Rheem or Richmond products. I will tell you that how can a tank fail in a years time, poor quality, poor service, poor warranty, no one should have to buy bad products like this, not even if it is a business. Time to buy a different product than this company. The paperwork says Residential Gas or Electric Water Heaters with a 6 year tank and 6 year parts limited warranty.

“There was a good atmosphere in the plane with the irony about the broken toilets.” Olsen is correct: the plumbing problem could not have been corrected from inside the plane. And with no plumber expected to pull off a Mission: Impossible-style mid-air repair, it was time to ground the flight. Despite the potty-humor appeal of this story, we know you’re probably not working on airplane plumbing (but if you’ve ever wondered how they achieve that super-suction, or just where the waste goes, check this out ). So without further ado, here are the top three challenges facing us land-based DIY plumbers. It’s the flush of fear: you pull the handle and the water rises… and keeps rising. If you’re lucky, it stops before it spills over the bowl. If you’re not, it’s time to break out the mop. Toilet troubles like this are generally due to a clog within the waste pipe; it may be a build up of that bottom-cushioning two-ply, or maybe your kid wanted to see if a Lego Man could swim. Either way, you can usually stop everyday clogs with a plunger, dish soap, or vinegar/baking soda solution. If clogs continue, you should call in a plumbing pro who can use high-end video inspection equipment to check for clogs, corrosion, or other pipe damage. Is your toilet running? Better go catch it!

Eventually, your pipes will become so clogged and blocked that the water just does not want to move. This is when it starts to back up into your home, and you probably know what a mess that can be. To avoid such situations, you need to give us a call and schedule a sewer rodding. Our experienced staff has been serving people in the Chatham area for many years, so we have seen it all.

A: My formal education in the trades came from the “school of hard knocks,” which I believe I may have enough credits (from) to earn a doctorate. I have attended many trade-related continuing education courses over the years and have read something trade-related every night for 25 years. Most of my management team, however, has no experience or training in the trades. It’s just a different skill set — leading and managing people, as opposed to knowing the trades. I was fortunate enough to be trained in both worlds, as I received a Bachelor of Science in business administration and finance right here at UNLV. Q: What made you decide to support the educational component of the air-conditioning industry? How has being involved in that aspect affected you personally? A:I’m a believer in giving back to the industry that has done so much for my family and me, and it has been a rewarding experience. I have made trade education one of my personal missions. Helping people with education can have a big, sustaining impact on their lives, their families and the industry.
