Tulsa, United States - September 24, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Big C’s Plumbing Services, a Broken Arrow, Oklahoma-based licensed, bonded and insured plumbing contractor and gas fitter with more than 25 years in the plumbing repairs business, has been preparing customers for the upcoming winter months with regard to their water heater maintenance, citing guidelines to help prevent issues before they impede on comfort.

“Though we’re only entering the fall season, before Oklahoma residents know it, winter will be upon us, and that means being able to take a hot shower or bath after coming in from shoveling snow or building a snowman with the kids,” explains Chris Ogan, President of Big C’s. “When there’s a problem with a home’s water heater, that nice hot shower or bath might have to be put on hold – but fortunately, with Big C’s winter water heater maintenance guide, our clients can prevent those problems before they truly interfere with regular day-to-day life.”

According to Big C’s representatives, there are five primary steps when it comes to maintaining a hot water heater – clearing space around the unit, shutting off the water supply and power, testing the TPR valve, checking the anode rod and flushing the tank. In starting with making sure the heater is free of clutter, Big C’s recommends homeowners maintain at least two feet of clearance around the unit so it can operate safely and properly.

In order to perform maintenance on the heater, Big C’s reps always suggest safety, first and foremost. To this end, it is imperative that homeowners shut off the power supply – the switch is usually located close to the water heater – and shut off the water supply valve. In moving on to testing the TPR valve, this temperature pressure relief protocol opens to release vapor if the pressure inside the tank gets too high, making it imperative that it works properly; Big C’s suggests placing a bucket below the pipe under the TPR and opening the valve quickly two to three times.

“If the valve leaks, it will need to be replaced – it’s as simple as that,” adds Ogan.

The anode rod, meanwhile, is housed inside a water tank, its function to attract minerals and other elements that could corrode the tank itself. Over time, the rod can either corrode or become coated with calcium, at which point it will need to be replaced. To check it, say Big C’s plumber personnel, the anode rod needs to be lifted out of the tank and visually inspected; if it is coated in sediment or if it’s less than half an inch in diameter, a new one should be purchased.

Finally, when it comes to flushing the tank, this is a task that, according to Big C’s, needs to be done several times a year to prevent sediment from building up inside it. To accomplish this, a hose is attached to the drain valve and all the water is drained out of the tank into a bucket, removing most of the sediment. If the water is cloudy, the cold water supply valve should be opened to let more water into the tank.

From there, the sediment should be stirred, the tank should be drained again and the process should be repeated until the water coming out of the tank is clear.

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction.

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Oct 29, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs.

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
