Is your water safe

Let’s get serious about your water. Really serious. Is your water Safe?

I recently came across an eye-opening article answering a big question: Is your water safe? What I learned was disturbing to say the least – and I had to share.

That clear, clean-looking fluid you use every day to cook, wash your clothes, bathe and quench your thirst – can be considered anything but safe.

When having a public water supply, obviously we assume that the municipalities take care of all the microorganisms that cause those crazy old-school diseases such as typhoid, cholera etc. and of course the dysentery that can cause a horrid case of the back door trots.

The municipal water supplies do clean the water, but how they need to do it is by using Chlorine.

Chlorine sanitizes what it needs to – but can be bad in high doses

Chlorine, for the most part, is relatively safe and is used to bleach everyday paper products we use and it is used to sanitize swimming pools. Don’t freak out and start thinking you and your children need to avoid public pools and toilet paper all together –

Chlorine itself is not the entirely problem. In fact, once Chlorine is in your body, it acts pretty similar to the chlorine in salt. Where it truly becomes an issue is when it is in a higher dosage and especially when it reacts with the organic material naturally found in water it is meant to sanitize. It is there that chlorine creates something referred to as DBPs.

Let’s focus on these bad boys – Disinfection byproducts (DBPs); these are the danger in our water. I use danger lightly... These DBPs are a chemical creation that is extremely persistent and does not break down within our bodies.

Water effects certain people differently

DBPs are 100 times more toxic than chlorine and according to the U.S Council of Environmental Quality, the cancer risk to people who drink chlorinated water is 93 percent higher than among those do not drink chlorinated water.

DBPs formed when chlorine is used to sanitize your water include Trihalomethanes (THMs) and those have been known to cause cancer in laboratory animals. DBPs produced from chlorine in your water have been linked to heart, lung, kidney and central nervous system. There have been over 600 different DBPs that have been reported from water since 1974 and on top of that – the EPA still estimates that less than half of all chlorinated DBPs have been identified.

Your Water – Your Family – Your Life

How do you protect yourself from the water in your home? Do you need to? The answer is of course YES!

Who wouldn’t believe it is absolutely necessary to protect yourself from these harmful, carcinogenic byproducts produced when water is sanitized and sent into your home to bathe in and drink?

Sadly, science is barely scraping the surface with understanding the potential short-term and long-term effects of the sanitizing chlorine Disinfection byproducts has on the human body and the environment.

5 Ways to Avoid Costly Frozen Pipes

5 Ways to Avoid Costly Frozen Pipes

Frozen pipes can be pretty but dangerous.

frozen pipes 5 Ways to Avoid Costly Frozen PipesBefore the temperatures drop there are 5 simple things you can do to ensure your pretty pipes do not freeze and develop into an ugly situation.

#1 – The Big Door:

What is the biggest door in your house? The garage door of course! The first thing you can do to ensure pipes do not freeze this season is keep your garage door closed if there is a water supply line in your garage. Simple. Done.

#2 – Open that Cupboard!

The next thing you can do to avoid costly frozen pipes is open your kitchen and bathroom cabinet to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. (BUT: Be sure to move any potentially harmful cleaners and household chemicals up out of the reach of children.)

#3 – Let your faucet trickle.

Believe it or not, running a trickle of water out of the faucet of exposed pipes helps avoid frozen pipes. If you have any exposed pipes during the cold weather, running a trickle out the faucet will keep it from becoming frozen.

#4 – Keep the Temp the Same.

Keep your thermostat set to the same temperature both during the day and night. While many people temporarily turn down their thermostat at night to conserve cost on their heating bill – it can have an effect on your indoor pipes

#5 – Don’t Skimp!

If you will be going away during cold weather, don’t skimp! Leave the heat on in your home and set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.

So you’ve done all that and you still suspect a leak?

DRF Supports Those Who Have Served Othersimages DRF and Veterans Day 2014

At DRF Trusted Property Solutions we would like to honor the men and women who served our country for their dedication and commitment to the service of others.  For their work and sacrifices all of us at DRF extend them our heartfelt thanks.

Tom Roberts

 Mike Lawyer

Larry O’Connell

John Zalud

Brandon Spence

Sal DeRosa

DRF Trusted Property Solutions always seeks to hire veterans onto our staff.  There are countless reasons why hiring a veteran makes great business sense. Veterans have the proven ability to quickly learn new skills and concepts and are trained to lead by example as well as through delegation. Through their experience both on and off the battlefield, veterans have the capacity to accomplish any task without succumbing to adversity. Veterans are tremendously accountable and respect rules and procedures. Furthermore, they are sincere and trustworthy, and have the proven ability to overcome challenges and obstacles through strength and determination. For these reasons DRF works with Troops to Trades, a program of the Nexstar Legacy Foundation, to help veterans find a career in this industry. To date Troops to Trades has helped veterans join the trades by providing them all-expense-paid training that allows them to find work at a company like DRF. With the strength of our dedicated team members like Mike Lawyer, Tom Roberts, Larry O’Connell, Sal DeRosa, John Zalud, and Brandon Spence, DRF Trusted Property Solutions continues to grow and thrive in the service of others. Please join DRF Trusted Property Solutions in recognizing those who have stepped forward to defend our freedom. For their work and sacrifices we extend them our heartfelt thanks.

DRF Sets its Sights above the Fold – Veteran’s Day 2014 is Upon Us

DRF Sets its Sights above the Fold

Veteran’s Day 2014 is Upon Us544b1ce81b1f1c05cf96cccdb1608154 DRF Sets its Sights above the Fold – Veteran’s Day 2014 is Upon Us

Yesterday, Sunday, churches all over the United States of America saluted those who served our country.  Pews full of church members honored in observance, a Capella choirs sang and regal trumpets flared while finely dressed service men and women stood proudly in front of the American flag.

Have you ever wondered why the Flag of the United States of America is folded 13 times when it is lowered or when it is folded and handed to the next of kin at the burial of a veteran?folded flag DRF Sets its Sights above the Fold – Veteran’s Day 2014 is Upon Us

The first fold of our Flag is a symbol of life.

As the flag is folded, for each fold recite the following:

The second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life.

The third fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing our ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world.

The fourth fold represents our weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance.

The fifth fold is a tribute to our country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, “Our Country, in dealing with other countries may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.”

The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that we pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

The seventh fold is a tribute to our Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that we protect our country and our flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our Republic.

The eighth fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day, and to honor mother, for whom it flies on Mother’s Day.

The ninth fold is a tribute to womanhood; for it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded.

The tenth fold is a tribute to the father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of our country since they were first born.

The eleventh fold, in the eyes of a Hebrew citizen represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon, and glorifies in their eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

The twelfth fold, in the eyes of a Christian citizen, represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in their eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit. When the Flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding us of our Nation’s motto, “In God We Trust.”

After the Flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for us the rights, privileges, and freedoms we enjoy today.

The next time you see a Flag ceremony honoring someone that has served our country, either in the Armed Forces or in our civilian services such as the Police Force or Fire Department, keep in mind all the important reasons behind each and every movement. They have paid the ultimate sacrifice for all of us by honoring our Flag and our Country.

DRF is a proud supporter of Veterans. DRF Trusted Property Solutions have the honor of employing several Veterans at our company.

In a special blog post tomorrow, DRF will have the honor of especially honoring our Veterans on Veteran’s Day tomorrow.

DRF and Breast Cancer Awareness

DRF is in the Fight towards a Future that Looks Bright!

20141008 0857412 DRF and Breast Cancer AwarenessDRF has been busy! As most of our fan base knows, DRF is “in the fight” against breast cancer.

To help in the fight towards a future that looks bright, DRF Trusted Property Solutions is making a donation for every water heater installed during the month of October. This donation per water heater installed will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The Breast Cancer Research foundation, also known as BCRF, is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. BCRF’s mission is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research.

20141013 082651 DRF and Breast Cancer AwarenessBehind the scenes, as DRF promotes breast cancer awareness, the DRF plumbers stock their trucks with the well-known pink breast cancer awareness wristbands. These stylish wristbands convey the combination of our DRF Breast Cancer Awareness slogan with a Breast Cancer Awareness motto: “DRF is in the fight… No one fights alone”.

When a customer has a hot water expert, a DRF licensed plumber, install their water heater, not only are they partaking in an excellent investment for the future of their home, but they are likewise taking part in the fight towards a future that looks bright for breast cancer.20141010 162924 DRF and Breast Cancer Awareness

Upon arrival, our plumbers will be wearing pink sunglasses. A pink breast cancer wristband is then left behind with our customer once the water heater installation is complete. This special breast cancer wristband represents a $10 donation towards the fight, donated to BCRF. Carefully etched upon the inside of the wristband is our website and phone number should our customers like to further help spread the word this October to their friends.

So that all of us at DRF may further make a difference, our customers, followers and friends are welcomed to match our donation through the Breast Cancer Awareness information section of the DRF Trusted Property Solutions’ website. To learn more about our match donation opportunity, receive an instant quote on your next water heater, and join us in the fight, click here: http://www.drftps.com/breastcancerawareness

In the meantime behind the scenes, our Plumbers will continue to help promote breast cancer awareness by wearing their wristband; not to mention, sporting Breast Cancer Awareness pink shades to remind everyone this month: DRF is in the fight towards a future that looks bright!

Sediment build-up

Bang-Bang! Let’s Play What’s in Your Water Heater!

2 Sediment build up

Behind door number one… we have sediment!

The most common complaint of a noisy water heater is the result of sediment accumulation in the water heater tank. If we were to take apart your water heater what would you expect to see inside?

[Get a FREE Water Heater Quote!]

 

3 225x300 Sediment build up

There is an accumulation of sediment in the tank (even in small amounts) that will create noises which begin shortly after the main burner ignites and the tank bottom heats up. The sound is usually described as popping, rumbling or boiling in the tank.

There are minerals in everyone’s water supply which settle to the tank’s bottom after being heated. Once they settle they form a hard layer of scale in which small air pockets form between the tank and the layer of sediment.

As the minerals are continually heated the air pockets are released thus creating the noise.

[Tankless Water Heaters DO NOT have this problem]

Why is there sediment in my water?

Just like that non-toxic “rotten-egg” smell that you have due to materials interacting with one another found in your water, sediment is also in all water supplies and there is no way to completely stop it from forming in the conventional water heater. [FREE Tankless Quote]

Periodic draining does help, but it will not always eliminate the problem all together.

4 Sediment build up

Expansion and contraction of some metal parts during periods of heat up and cool down is not uncommon and does not represent harmful or dangerous conditions.

Condensation may also cause sizzling and popping noises within the burner area during heating periods.

BANG! BANG!

That loud banging sound you hear in your pipes is referred to as a “water hammer” noise and that sound is due to high water pressure in the home’s plumbing system. That high pressure can result in leaking water heaters, pounding water pipes and excessive wear on appliances. The water hammer or “surge” is caused by the bounced back or shock of highly pressurized water when a fixture or appliance is opened or closed quickly.

5 Sediment build up

To avoid damage to the water heater DRF recommends installing a pressure regulating valve upstream to your plumbing system that will maintain the outlet pressure to about 45 to 50 pounds per square inch or installing a properly sized expansion tank.

Smelly Water – What makes that nasty smell? And is it really harmless?

“Smelly Water” – Smelling Eggs When No one’s Making Breakfast?

holding your nose Smelly Water   What makes that nasty smell? And is it really harmless?Ever smell that nasty smell of “rotten eggs” coming from your water?

No worries, this “smelly water” is not toxic. Most often “smelly water” will be noticed with well water or typically when a water heater has not been used for a long period of time (vacations, etc.).

But why? What makes that nasty smell? And is it really harmless?

The smell is an effect of the combined presence of hydrogen, sulfur, and bacteria. In every water heater there is an anode rod installed within the tank which protects the tank’s surface, but this is also what can generate just enough hydrogen to create an odor when it interacts with the sulfur in the water or bacteria in the tank.

Once the hydrogen and sulfur combine to form the hydrogen sulfide gas that gives off the rotten egg, smelly, odor to the water.

images0VG3LN35 Smelly Water   What makes that nasty smell? And is it really harmless?

The smelly water is harmless and is non-toxic, but it still smells horrible and you don’t want to cook, bathe or wash dishes and clothes in it… so what to do?

There are several different ways to deal with a smelly water problem, and DRF Trusted Property Solutions can help with this or any other water-related issue. Contact us for help in answering questions about water and water heaters. We can also help guide you to the perfect solution to any plumbing-related problem.
