School’s Back – Safety Reminder!

Here in the Portland Metro area and across the nation, school is officially back in session!

As a family company, we here at Sutherland Plumbing would like to remind all of our followers to please drive safely.

Here are a few tips to help keep you, your family, your neighbors and your community safe:

  • Carefully read and follow all traffic safety signals and signs.

  • When in a school zone please take extra precaution to closely obey the reduced speed requirements.

  • When in a school zone, please DO NOT speed-up until you are completely out of the school zone.

  • DO NOT text, email or instant message under any circumstances while driving. If it’s that important – pullover to a safe place before using your phone.

  • Even if you’re on a phone call using a hands-free device, please be aware that your attention is still distracted and be extra cautious while using the hands-free device.

  • This time of year, there are many kids around, even outside of school zones and school hours. Please be careful even while driving outside of school zones and/or school hours.

  • If in doubt – SLOW DOWN!

Let’s all work together to keep our kids safe. Drive with extra caution and safety this school season!

Ti’s Tips – “The cheap comes out expensive…”

Ever heard it said: “The cheap comes out expensive in the end?” 

This especially applies in the plumbing trade! 

The image below is of two 1.5″ tubular slip nuts, I haven’t found a house yet without one. They make the seal under your sinks to the drain pipes. 

(Right) is a cheap plastic one, notice the huge crack

This resulted in a damaged wood cabinet, damaged wood floors, stinky, gross drain water all over the place & an unexpected service call from the plumber!

(Left) is a solid metal one.

Note: Sutherland Plumbing only uses the higher quality metal ones!

Had the original plumber invested about .50 cents more – all of this would have been avoided!Tubular Seals

And yes, Katrina does all of our daily bookkeeping!

But that’s not all…Katrina also oversees purchasing trucks and equipment, the company payroll, all necessary insurances and our merchant service accounts. Not to mention all of the other little things that go into running an office and monetary systems!

Summer Reminder – How to check your water pressure!

To all of our valued customers:

Don’t get us wrong, we love all the work you’re giving us, but if you want to do something proactive to avoid unexpected & costly plumbing breakdowns – check & know what the water pressure in your home is.

Per the plumbing code (not to mention good practice) anything that’s at 80 PSI (pounds per square inch) or higher is excessive and MUST be regulated.

Excessive water pressure is analogous to high blood pressure. The devastating effects & havoc are caused over time. Irreversible damage can (and will) take its toll! High water pressure is one of the most common core problems discovered by plumbers day after day, service call after service call.

I’ll make this as easy as possible: Check the link below. It will take you to Amazon to purchase the very same tool we purchase as professionals to check your water pressure. It’s literally as easy as hooking up a garden hose!
