Plumbing Experience Defined

How many plumbing company's have been around longer that 50 years?  40 years?  Or even 10 years?  Here's another question; how many employees have been with the same plumbing company, or any company, for longer than 10 years?  To  become a certified journeyman plumber, as defined by the United Association, requires 10000 hours of on the job training as apprentice.  Here at the Maples plumbing company, in Eureka,CA, we have both.  Most of our plumbers have been here longer than 10 years, and most have completed the 10000 hours of training to become a journeyman.  Oh, and by way, we are in our 57th year.  In the photo are our founder, Wayne Maples, and 44 year employee Tiny Hubler.  Both retired, but a photo that is the definition of experience.

Plumbing Service Van Dealer recommendation: Jenkins Diesel

Once again, we've added a service van to our fleet of rolling warehouses.  Not just any van, but our rolling warehouse.  And, once again, we've purchased it from Jenkins Diesel. www.jenkinsdiesel.com

Jenkins Diesel, and specifically sales representive Rick Wilson, have sold to us numerous plumbing service vans.  We fly our driver from Califonia to Missouri, and Rick picks him up at the airport.  The transaction is complete in just a few minutes and our driver receives the keys and gets on the road bound for Norcal. 

Rick, and Jenkins Diesel, make it easy.  I trust them completely. 

After the van arrives home, then we commence to make it a Mapleservice rolling warehouse.

Running toilet

Is your toilet running?  It's probably the fill valve.  See the photo.  The float on the fill valve moves up and dow,n controlling the water filling the tank.  At times, a worn fill valve's float will cease to rise to the point of "shutting off" the water.  The result is a toilet that constantly fills or "runs".  Fill valves can be tricky to replace, so you may want to call a plumber.
