GOP to Appeal to Hispanic Voters with New Candidate After a tough loss to Obama last year, Republicans are changing their game plan for the 2016 election. Focusing on the lackluster support by hispanic voters, the GOP announced Enrique Miguel Honduras as the most likely candidate for the next election cycle. With a Mexican immigrant on the ballot, the party hopes to gain increased support from hispanic voters. Opposition on the left has attacked Mr. Honduras for his lack of political experience. Speaking on behalf of the candidate, GOP spokesperson Connor Whitman Jr. told the Sewer, “Señor Honduras is a god fearing family man, something every American can relate to.” When asked to expand on his platform, Mr. Honduras glanced nervously at Whitman and told us, “no comment.”

1. Frequent problems that require repairs Tank-style electric and gas water heaters can experience the following problems: -Water leaks (if the tank itself is leaking, its a sure sign that it has corroded as a result of old age and needs to be replaced) -Water is there, but its not hot enough/there are frequent temperature fluctuations While each of these problems does not indicate on its own that its time to get a new heater (in fact most can be fixed), if you start experiencing issues frequently, its a very telling sign that the device is old and needs to be replaced. Moreover, if you find that your repair bills start to add up, it may be a smart financial decision to replace the heater, rather than continue dumping money into repairs. If you know the age of your water heater, and its nearing the end of its service life, you may want to consider replacing it, BEFORE it starts giving you major trouble . It often happens that a heater works perfectly well, and just before due to expire, it gives a major leak, which is more like a flood. If this happens, you may encounter costly repairs from water damage, in addition to the cost of replacing the device itself. 3. Rusty color water coming out of faucet/shower If there is rusty color water coming out, when you turn on hot water, it may be a sign that your heater has started to rust from the inside due to old age. To make sure that this is the case is to drain your hot water heater.

Reworking a chopped-up bath creates a spacious and sunny retreat A crowded bath can be downright scary. When Jim and Jane Breihan moved into their 1996 ranch, in Geneva, Illinois, the master bath felt so cramped, dark, and dated that Jane refused to use it. “I just closed the doors and went to the guest bathroom,” she says. No wonder: Between a giant corner tub, two hulking vanities, a massive walk-in closet, and a separate toilet enclosure, there was little room to maneuver. So the couple enlisted the help of local design firm The Kitchen Studio of Glen Ellyn to bring the master bath some much-needed airiness. To maximize the space, everything had to go—especially the extra walls that broke up the room. The new layout allows or an expansive shower, complemented by a charming claw-foot tub. Two vanities were replaced with one that boasts six drawers and a marble counter with plenty of deck space. And with vintage-style paneled wainscoting, a basketweave tile floor, and Gordontheplumber.com Wayne Illinois 60184 polished-nickel finishes, the new bath has a timeless look.

  The same repair should always product the same results. Flat rate pricing assures that from master plumber to journeyman plumber and from customer to customer the same fee is charged for the same repair. That produces the same profit results. Unlike time and materials pricing, there is no undercharging for Fred Fast and no overcharging for Sam Slow. Customers will focus on the overall value instead of how much time the plumber spends on the repair. Everybody is happier.  With a flat-rate system, the goal is to charge a fair price. But a fair price isn’t necessarily a low price. Hey—you work hard. Your company needs to make a profit.

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? Do you think that having a technical background is essential to running the business side of things, and if so, why? 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.
