With the price of water increasing so much in the last couple of years, saving water has not only become important from an environmental point of view, but directly affects every household’s bottom line.
We are previledged to be able to support the day, by buying a bandana. I do believe that every small donation, can make a big difference. We are so blessed to be healthy, our thoughts and prayers are with each one that suffers from cancer and their families.
Keep smiling, God is great!
JJ Lourens Plumbing personnel had the opportunity earlier this month to treat the seniors at Ravenzicth House in Kraaifontein for spring day.
Many geysers in South Africa and of course Cape Town are installed in the ceiling space of a house. The advantage of this being that it does not take up usable space within the home, the disadvantage of course being that should the geyser burst, the water will run onto the ceiling and could potentially damage the room below.
With more than 20 years in the plumbing industry JJ Lourens Plumbers has seen its fair share of leaking pipes. The troublesome thing with leaking plumbing/pipes is that the source of the leak is not always apparent. Water, being the tricky bugger that it is, always finds the easiest way out, which is not always the most obvious way out.
Many people are unaware of the fact that their geyser is supposed to leak. That’s right, the average geyser can drip up to 8 litres of water per day under normal usage conditions. This is due to the normal operation of the pressure relieve valve that regulates the internal pressure of the geyser. Without the pressure relief valve, the pressure in your geyser would keep on building and building until it eventually goes boom!
