The Rise of Trenchless Technology: A Retrospective Trenchless technology became truly groundbreaking—by literally not breaking ground! It used to be that repairing, replacing, or rehabilitating existing underground infrastructure, such as sewer piping, required tearing up yards, streets, structures… anything that lie above it. With trenchless technology, however, no trenches (or at least much fewer) need to be dug in order to make the fix, saving time, money, and in some cases, the environment. It also causes much less disruption to businesses, homeowners, traffic, and other activities. Trenchless technology follows two models, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) or pipe bursting. CIPP involves pulling a special liner filled with resin through a pipe; once in pace, the resin hardens and provides a smooth, seamless pipe. Pipe bursting involves inserting a cable into a pipe with a bursting head, pulling it through and pushing away the old pipe while laying the new one in its place. But you know all that, right? So let’s take a look back at trenchless technology milestones through the years. 1970: CIPP developed.

Last, but not least, while in our customers’ homes, do the things that protect our customers’ health and safety. Change their smoke detector batteries; replace the screws in the AC unit that the last guy left out; and check the duct system and seal up any open areas that may draw dust and dirt into the home. Q: The Goettl AC logo features a young boy holding a flashlight; can you explain why you chose that imagery to represent your air-conditioning business? A: Our brand is about the experience, joy and life lessons a boy learns by holding the flashlight for his dad. Most men have experienced holding the flashlight for their dads and identify that as a positive impact in their lives. I was a 10-year-old boy holding the flashlight for my dad, Duncan Goodrich, as he worked on an air conditioner for a customer. Through many years of being the official flashlight holder, I became a skilled HVAC technician, learned invaluable business lessons and, ultimately, how to be the best at what I do and make customers happy. By the way, the boy on the logo is a digital re-creation of my son, Duncan, when he was 10 years old. I’m pretty sure he resembled me at that age. Q: Besides learning from your father, do you have any formal education in air-conditioning and plumbing?

I’m not responsible if you injure yourself … wear gloves and safety goggles, and use utmost caution. If you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself, contact a local plumber . STEP 1 What you need to do, is shut off the cold water intake AND gas (dialer on the water heater control) or circuit breaker for the heater (if electric). Then connect a water hose to BOTTOM outlet. Put hose in 5 gallon bucket or run outside your basement. Again, WATER IN THE TANK IS STILL VERY HOT! Drain about 5-10 gallons (depending on how high up the pressure valve is). STEP 2 Once you drain the water, remove the discharge tube / pipe off the relief valve. Gently open pressure valve HALF WAY (not all the way) to see if water still coming out of it.

Highschool fights back against obesity with new meal plans Late last Thursday, the Onteora Sewer was able to obtain details of new meal plans expected to be rolled out later this semester. With obesity at an all time high in America and no signs of it slowing down, one local high school is putting in place new measures to prevent the growth of this epidemic. Targeting a student’s diet as the major contributor to weight gain, the school will be supplementing all meals with the popular fat burning supplement, “Hydroxycut™”. America’s number one weight loss product will be introduced on a large scale throughout many of the food items available at the cafeteria. Since the details about this new policy were announced, many parents have criticized the school against the use of the food additive, citing safety concerns for the students. “Our lawyers are reviewing the lawsuit against MuscleTech [manufacturer of Hydroxycut] and the claims that the supplement may cause severe liver damage. Despite your concerns we believe parents will be pleasantly surprised with how tone and fit their children will look as a result of the change,” the school’s spokesperson said in response to parental concerns. Following the statement, parents praised the school’s dedication to health and the safety of the children.
