Industrial Plumbing

Recently we hooked up  a beautiful $100,000 machine at Tampo Print in Vero Beach. This machine is used for ”  etching metal for Stamping (also known as pressing) . It involves the  process of placing flat sheet metal in either blank or coil form into a stamping press where a tool and die surface forms the metal into a net shape. Stamping includes a variety of sheet-metal forming manufacturing processes, such as punching using a machine press or stamping press, blanking, embossing, bending,  and coining.[1] stamping at factories.” ( Definition from Wikipedia)

I ran the air lines, three water services, 4″ vent through the rough and three drains.  There are plumbers who would scratch their head at this job, but not us, this was easy stuff for us.

We can do anything you need and  the more complex  it is the more we like it!!  We LOVE a challenge!

Tampo Print in Vero Beach is a great company with an awesome staff we enjoyed working with them. American made!!

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

Laundry Rooms!!

Until about 10 years ago it seemed that laundry rooms were not something to waste interior space on. In fact, most of the homes in Florida sent us out to our garage, or to the space between the garage and kitchen to do our laundry. The high end homes began to understand that doing laundry in a hot garage in the summer, which, here in Florida seems to last until November some years, is NOT a selling feature. So they moved the laundry room into the home. Where the laundry person, usually Mom, could be more comfortable.

Now laundry rooms are truly becoming a room that has style and function. Before you build your new dream home, or remodel your existing home, and for that fact, for some of the new offices being constructed now, take a look at HOUZZ, and see what can be done with that shabby old place that used to be in the garage!!

 

State of the art washer and dryer which use less water and power, a great sink for handwashing, and a place to hang up clothes and you take them out of the dryer. Plus storage for cleaning items and bulk items that aren’t used very often.

New Construction & Plumbing

IRC Plumbing is growing, and so are Indian River and Brevard Counties!

We have been getting more calls for remodels lately, and now we are getting plenty of calls from people building homes, offices and commercial buildings. Let’s face it, working on plumbing is what we do, and we will always be happy to do it. But some of the most fun we have is planning and installing brand new kitchens, bathrooms, break rooms, pot fillers and all the plumbing that no one sees once the walls are up!

The best time for us to work on those types of projects is before any building ever begins. It pays to have experienced plumber work on the plans with you right from the start. Something that may look good on paper could be difficult, or even expensive to install. We won’t talk you out of things you want, but we will help you to optimize your plumbing installation while still getting the look and feel you want.

It is also important to define the look you are going for and planning properly for the function behind the great look. Some of the more European looking fixtures can be stunning, but they might require a different method of installation.

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 Someone’s Dream Bathroom

Have you ever wondered, just a little bit, what goes into building someone’s dream bathroom. You know, those one’s you see on Houzz, or HGTV with all the different shower heads, just looking like a little bit of heaven?

We are going to give you a peek at what goes on behind the walls of that dream bathroom. At IRC. we call this a real plumbing job . This shower will be gorgeous when it’s all done, with  6 body sprays with different diverters, plus two normal shower with their own diverters and then a rain head to share on another valve. Lucien got to use his preference, copper piping, which is more expensive and time consuming but nothing compares.

Whether you are a plumber or not, look at the symmetry of these pipes, forget the studs and the other items around them, and just see how beautifully everything is lined up. This is not something we get to do every day .

Leak Detection

leak detection IRC plumbing, Sebastian Florida

We talked about having an undetected water leak in your home, and how we can find it quickly using our leak detection device, but what can you do yourself to detect a leak?

  1. If you suspect a leak, the first thing to do is shut off all your faucets, showers, the water valve leading to your washer, and your toilets and check to see if your meter continues to run.
  2.  If you have a well on your property, check to see if it is running constantly.
  3. If you don’t have water gushing into your house, send someone outside to where your meter is located. Flush the toilets one at a time, wait until the tank fills back up, then check to see if the meter is still running.
  4. If water is pouring out, locate the main water shut off for your home and shut that off and call us.

Because water doesn’t always puddle at the source of a leak, if your leak is not one you can find quickly using any of the above methods, IRC plumbing has Leak Detection Equipment which takes the guess work out of finding leaks.

We have been in the plumbing business here in Indian River County for enough years that we can tell where some of the more common sources of leaks will be, but sometimes leaks are sneaky and they occur in less obvious areas. The most difficult leaks to pinpoint can be leaks in your slab. That is why we have made the investment in Leak Detector.

Leak detectors use sound to detect where a leak is coming from. It is actually more complex than that, but you don’t need the details, you just need to know that we know how to read the information that comes from our Leak Detection Equipment in order to diagnose and ultimately repair whatever leaks are causing you problems.

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
