However, every home needs a good functioning plumbing, heating & drainage system. An efficient plumbing system is an essential part of any home.
Knowing how your home’s plumbing system works can help you solve small problems that may crop up. This can save you the cost of hiring a plumber and the embarrassment after calling a plumber for very small reason or no reason at all. …
Would you use this see-through toilet? It takes a very brave individual to be able to use a public restroom like this.
Back in 2015 on November 19th to mark World Toilet Day, the Global Poverty Project brought a “see-through toilet” to Washington Square Park in New York City, courtesy of Unilever/Domestos. New Yorkers experienced what it’s like for the 2.4 billion people who don’t have access to a basic toilet, and the almost 1 billion who are forced to defecate in the open.
World Toilet Day is an official United Nations international observance day on 19 November to inspire action to tackle the global sanitation crisis.
Worldwide, 4.5 billion people live without “safely managed sanitation”.
That summer holiday may already be a distant memory, but some hazy recollection of glorious, sun-soaked interiors could be lingering. How about bringing some of that cool, glazed pattern into your bathroom or kitchen at home with Moroccan and Mediterranean patterned tiles?
Many of the most beautiful decorative tiles create a loud, rhythmic pattern across a large surface area. This can be striking, but also overwhelming.

A minor blockage or leak can rapidly become far more serious, which can mean costly repairs if allowed to get out of hand.
Even without the obvious risk of burst pipes, flooding, or a contaminated supply, poorly maintained plumbing can still cost you money…
A gas safety check is different from a gas service. It is primarily designed to inspect any gas appliances including boilers, cookers and fires (permanent or portable) to ensure they are working correctly and safely. A gas safety check MUST be carried out by a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
Unlike a gas service which will involve a more in-depth inspection of gas appliances, pipework, vents and flues, a gas safety check is designed to check the following:
Fact #1 — Do you have a leaky tap in your kitchen or bathroom? If the leak drips twice each minute, you’re wasting a gallon of water each week. This adds up over time, so definitely consider scheduling a repair with a plumber.
Fact #2 — Albert Einstein was made an honorary member of the Plumbers and Steamfitters Union after announcing that he would be a plumber if he had to live his life all over again.
Fact #3 — The average person spends three whole years of their life sitting on the toilet! That’s 1,095 days or 26,280 hours!
