Look Around Your Home

What-not-to-do(2)Our homes are something that we take for granted. We rush in, make dinner, rush out to band practice, or football, or soccer, or chorus, to whatever volunteer or entertaining functions we are engaged in. Today, I am going to ask you to stop, look, and listen.

Nobody I know ever wants to spend money on repairs that don’t make their home look prettier, I get that. But if you DON’T spend any money whatsoever on maintenance, you will spend MUCH more on repairs later.

So, take a moment, do both of us a favor before you call me in a panic, with a house full of company, and a water heater that just fell apart, leaking all over your house and leaving you with no hot water and a mess to clean up. If your water heater is in the garage, go out and look at it. Do you have garage junk piled all around it? If you haven’t opened those boxes or don’ t know what’s in the containers, just throw it away and clear the area around the water heater.

Is your water heater sitting directly on the concrete floor of your garage? That is a no no. Look around the water heater. Are there areas that are rusting and calcified, that’s not good either. Does hot water run out before two people get a nice, warm shower? Another no no.

We would rather come out and tell you good news, or prevent a big problem, than to see you stressed and upset at a much bigger problem. So if you don’t follow these suggestions before the Holidays, at least put them on your 2016 TO DO List.

Happy Holidays

Dream Bathroom

We recently put up a post about what goes on behind the walls of a beautiful, dream bathroom. Today we are going to show you another dream bathroom, but we will let you see the finished product this time. From Melbourne, to Sebastian and Vero, we fix broken bathrooms, spiff up older baths, and build dream bathrooms for people who finally get that dream house.

Recently IRC Plumbing completed work on a bathroom in Sebastian. It was a remodel, and they were creating a new master suite. The catch, this dream bathroom is on the THIRD floor.  Nothing like putting a 600 pound tub on the third story of a remodel. There was no master bath here a couple weeks ago and upgraded the hall bath. What a beautiful job with a gorgeous view. Another great job with Tozzolo Brothers Construction.

Plumbing in Days Past

Lucien Rizio, Vero Beach PlumberYou might say to us, Vanessa and Lucien, plumbing is plumbing, people need to clean their dishes, their bodies, wash their clothes. Water needs to come into the house, and then, when people are done with their cleaning, the water must go out. For thousands of years there has been plumbing of one sort or another, so what is the big deal? Maybe there isn’t any one big deal, but the good news about  plumbing, as we know it today, is it is  safer than it has ever been.Continue Reading

What Does IRC Plumbing Do?

Plumber, Sebastian, Plumber Vero, Plumber MelbourneI met someone the other day who asked me what I do for work, and I told him that our company is called IRC Plumbing. He said tell me more, so I said:

Turning a Regular Office Into a Doctor’s Office

IRC Plumbing isn’t magic, but sometimes it seems like we are. We take a plain old, vanilla office building and with some piping, a few sinks and faucets, presto! We have a great suite of fully plumbed exam rooms for  a local Physician here in Sebastian at 512 Commerce Center .

Commerce Center has offices of varying sizes, which is for the most part not designed for any specific type of industry, which makes them fully customizable. The buildings  are well constructed and working there is a pleasure. In fact, we are now thinking about moving in there ourselves.

For this particular project, IRC Plumbing added four exam room sinks with on demand water heaters.  In this instance, there was no existing plumbing for us to either remove, or work around. That’s the easy part. The more difficult part was Lucien  had to run all drain and water lines. Another beautiful job.

If you need new plumbing, repairs on existing plumbing or you are preparing to move to a space at 512 Commerce Center, give us a call @772/697/3747.

Have a great day!! 😉
