Commercial Plumbing always has surprises!!

While we never realyy know what kind of issues we are going to run into. At Baker Plumbing, we prepare for the worse and hope for the best! Here we have a project completed by others yet us and the client are left dealing with the problems! This entire commercial property was installed with Pex pipe (no problem) and plastic fittings!! (Seriously why???) This is at least the 10th failure we’ve repaired since the building opened 2 years ago!! When installers try to save by cutting corners, the end result is always the same!! TROUBLE! We did fix this client up and all is well that ends well, until next time anyway!!

WATCH THE REPAIR UNFOLD!

 

Old school meets new school

 

Here we are replacing some defective 2″ copper pipe and fittings! First we cook up some 45s using the old school method of soldering everything in place. Next we remove the defective pieces and install new pipe and fittings, finishing off the job by breaking out the new school press gun and pressing 2″ couplings. Amazing!

From beginning to end!

Blue is the new White!

Had an amazing opportunity to discuss some important issues within the trade world, as well as having a great time! 👍👍 Check it out!

Becoming successful in today’s America is simple: graduate high school, go to college, and get a white-collar job. That path is undoubtedly going to lead you to the biggest paycheck and the best opportunities. Right?

The truth is, some of the most lucrative jobs out there are blue-collar jobs–yet society pushes the perception that being an auto mechanic, plumber, electrician, or construction worker somehow indicates a lack of success. A career in the skilled trades was once well-regarded as a good, honest profession. Now, we discourage young people from pursuing those careers in favor of racking up massive student loan debt and pursuing professional careers that may not always play to their strengths.

In Blue Is The New White, Josh Zolin shows that success doesn’t have to mean a college degree. He discovered this firsthand, rising through hard work from a technician at his dad’s small business to the CEO of a multi-million-dollar company. There is more than one path to a stable career and a great financial future; in this book, you’ll learn just how many opportunities await you in places you never thought to look.

Boiler maintenance in Calgary. Laars boiler and Watts PRV

BOILER MAINTENANCE IS KEY!

Replacing this PRV got a little complicated!

 

Client sent in a video of a pump screaming. Arrived to find the PRV plugged and inoperable. It’s the small things that can cause big problems.

In Calgary and own Commercial property, give us an opportunity to look after your equipment, you won’t be disappointed! If We Can’t Do It, It Can’t Be Done!

One of the biggest thieves of efficiency in boiler operations is the accumulation of soot and/or scale on heat exchanger surfaces. It does not take long for soot to start causing significant loss of energy efficiency.

In a matter of just a couple of weeks, there could be a potential of 1/8 in. of soot on equipment stemming from regular usage, which means lost efficiency and overspending in utility costs.
Scale can also accumulate quickly and add unnecessary operational expenses.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, fuel consumption could increase as much as five per cent in firetube boilers as a result of scale.

Routine maintenance and cleaning is the most beneficial way to keep boilers healthy and running efficiently. Performing this maintenance at least once a year is an investment that will pay off.

 

TIPS FOR A HEALTHY BOILER

  • Stick to an Inspection and Maintenance Schedule – At least once a year qualified on-site personnel or a third party should inspect and clean all parts of the boiler. Contractors may create a maintenance plan to be done internally or do the work themselves. It is important to have a solid schedule in place to keep clients on track.
  • Review the Chemical and/or Mechanical Cleaning Solutions – You will notice a significant reduction in operating costs by removing the contaminants on both the waterside (scale formation) and the fireside (soot and scale formation) of boilers. While mechanical cleaning typically utilizes moving brushes to remove scale from the walls of tubes and pipes, the chemical process uses a chemical solution to flow through the tubes dissolving and flushing out the scale.
  • Maintain Daily Logs – Most problems develop slowly, therefore a log is the best way to detect significant changes. Have the facility manager keep daily logs on the following: type and amount of fuel used; flue gas temperature; makeup water volume; and steam pressure, temperature, and volume. Ongoing logs will help monitor for any potential issues that might develop or identify problems that could be fixed with proper cleaning.
  • Perform Visual Inspections – Look at the boiler tubes and conducting a visual inspection to check for scale accumulation on a more frequent basis to help ensure the boiler tubes are free of scale and buildup.
