I'm calling from the office, and I'm here to give you 2 jobs. I would like to know if you can go tomorrow. The first job is between 10 AM and 1 PM in Long Beach, San Pedro. The customer wants to change 25 outlets in the entire house.
Understandable. If we have jobs tomorrow after 3 PM, we will call you again.
Why do my drains smell?
If you notice an odor emanating from your drains, sulfur is probably to blame. To be more precise, microorganisms in the pipes are what produce hydrogen sulfide gas. While it's important to point out that this isn't the sole cause of odorous drains, it is highly prevalent. It would be best if you cleaned the pipes to solve the issue. You may pour half a cup of bleach or, alternately, half a cup of baking soda and half a cup of vinegar down the drain. Remember that using the latter of the two will result in a little chemical reaction that will allow the foam to rise back up the pipe; it is thus advisable to block the drain after pouring the vinegar to press the foam through the pipe. After using either technique, pour warm to hot water down the drain. You should contact your neighborhood plumber if this does not work.
What is the difference between 110 and 220 volts?
More voltage at the same cycles per second (cps), which means more power to the appliance. Generally, 220V is used for large appliances, 110V is used for small appliances. Using a 110V appliance in a 220V outlet will burn out the appliance. Using a 220V appliance in a 110V outlet will make the appliance run slow or not at all.
How many minutes is 25 miles?
The time it will take to drive 25 miles varies depending on the location and posted speed limit. For example, if you're driving on the interstate, it may only take 30 minutes. However, if you find yourself in a residential area or on lower-speed roads, expect the journey to last anywhere from 30 minutes up to a couple of hours (not including traffic conditions).
How Does A Water Softener Work?
A water softener uses a medium that serves to exchange “ions” of calcium and magnesium with sodium or potassium. The water in the house runs through a media tank filled with a resin bed of small plastic beads designed to attract hard minerals present in the water. Eventually they are saturated with minerals and need to be cleaned or regenerated. Sodium or potassium is introduced to the media bed during regeneration. As this brine water flows over the resin beads ion exchange occurs, they swap places with the calcium and magnesium ions and the hard minerals are removed from the resin beads and discharged in the backwash water along with any dirt or sediment collected. The final phase rinses the resin bed with fresh water and loads the brine tank so it is ready for the next cycle. Automatic water softeners are usually programmed to recharge at specific times that will not disrupt the occupants. It is more water-efficient to have a metered that will regenerate only when required
What size electrical service system do I install in my home?
Most states call for 100 amps minimum, but with all the new electronic devices, air conditioning and electric heat, I would suggest 200 amps especially in new homes. This also gives you some space for future additions. This is not a job for an unlicensed person to attempt. In most cases it involves replacing everything from the service loop (this is the wire that extends from the top of your meter to the utility tie in ) up to and including the main panel.
