Best Practices For Saving Money In Plumbing Projects

Regardless of how scared you are about plumbing nightmares, they will happen – soon. Your toilet seat may decide to break when you’re having Thanksgiving celebrations or when you’re having a barbecue for family. Irvine is known for these issues. Rather than live with these sources of embarrassment, you have to contact a leading plumbing company like Fanning Plumbers to bail you out.
From our experience, we have been fortunate enough to identify a few things you can do to save money off plumbing issues.

Prevent And Maintain Your Plumbing Systems
We understand that you live a very busy life filled with lots of deadlines, kids, school, etc. But the truth is, by focusing on being busy, we tend to overlook the much needed repairs or maintenance routines for our home water and sewerage systems.

For example; it takes sometime for particles to accumulate in the home drainage systems, so does it take for grease within moving pipes to dry. By overlooking maintenance (by yourself or through hiring someone) for these systems, you escalate the small problem into a bigger, more costly one.

To stay on top of the needed maintenance processes, get in touch with a plumbing company like Fanning Plumbers of California for a maintenance contract. In the long term, you’ll end up saving a lot of money.
Only Use Affordable Professionals
One of the most common mistakes we see a lot of people making is going for the cheapest plumbing quote they can find on the web. The truth is, why is a plumbing company offering massive discounts to you if they are paying highly qualified plumbing contractors?

Since plumbing is such an essential aspect of the home, you should take the hiring of plumbing professionals very seriously. Apart from comparing different plumbing quotes against deliverable, you should also stick to hiring only the best plumbing professionals. This not only saves money directly, but also does it indirectly when quality, lasting work is performed.

Think About Replacements
Lets face it, operating with faulty faucets long enough is extremely challenging. It is also very costly if you have to carry out repairs repeatedly. The ideal way to save money on “chronic” repairs is to consider total replacement or overhaul.

Research has shown that people who replace extremely used up faucets, toilet seats or broken sinks tend to save a lot of money. Sometimes, replacing is the only way to kiss your plumbing issue nightmares goodbye.

Research Your Irvine Plumbers
Due diligence can seem like a lot of work for you. However, do you know that it can help you save a lot of money and time if done accordingly? Finding a good plumber has become harder owing to the massive numbers operating handyman companies. However, if you make it your policy to thoroughly vet every plumber, including us, you will save money on good workmanship as well as accrued discounts.

In conclusion, if you never thought it was possible to save money with plumbing, we hope that this article has changed your mind. Apply the message therein in all your plumbing endeavors and you will save a lot of money.

Looking to start living out my dream, to start a product design firm. Looking for insight.

I'm an electromechanical engineer with a passion for solving problems and inventing products to solve said problems. Its my dream to own my own company, and I am poised to start that process.

My background is in product design, industrial automation, sensors, and systems. That being said, I feel like I wouldn't have the capacity to work on industrial automation at such a young stage. Additionally, my real passion is for product design engineering, which I consider more focused on advanced personal consumer products.

What I want to do is be able to work on my own designs/products, and hopefully eventually launch them into the market. I also want to have the versatility to work on other people's designs and contract work. Budgetarily, we're talking ~$5k for the software package I need. Eventually, if I can pull a profit, I'd like to buy prototyping equipment and offer small run prototype work. What I don't want to be is a maker space, which I feel like I am teetering on kinda-sorta.

I've got a pretty good portfolio of my personal side projects as well as jobs I've worked on during my career, both while working salary positions and contract gigs, which should help demonstrate my worth.

I've gone through company name and the LLC filing steps (still to be submitted), as well as domain name and social media availability and feel like I've got a hit on that front. I can design my own logo and website no problem. I understand that this is not a priority, but I spent some time kicking around ideas trying to figure out how I would represent what the company actually provides and a few names came up.

I really want to do this, it's my dream, but I guess I'm scared of whether or not this is a good angle to provide service to the product design and engineering industry. I wonder if there is a niche angle I can take that sets me apart from others.

Has anyone done something like this can can give me some insight?

Everything is set for my business to take off, just found out theres a company with the same name. What are my options?

Hey everyone.

I'm starting a meal replacement company and I just found that theres another company with the same exact name.

The bottom of their site says: "Copyright ©2011-2016"

They only have one product on their site. It looks like someone paid $49 on squarespace and got an eCommerce site.

Their logo and name don't have the rights reserved symbol or copyright symbol next to them.

I doubt they're making any money. Their product is a $20 dietary supplement and they ship for $10.

My product is $300 flat and I have a few people lined up for my first few sales. Can I run into trouble for having the same name but different logo?

Thank you in advance.

New Product Launch – Need FAQs

Hey everyone! I'll start with what I need some help with and then put in a little history on the product. I am putting together my FAQ page and need some… well I need some questions phrased from real people to help me put it together. The FAQ page is currently hidden but I will make it live as we go if I get some responses.

The product. I live in a remote town in Alaska that is only accessible by airplane or boat. There is no Road connecting us to the world (Believe me shipping is already my biggest expense). I live near the Chugach mountains, and the Copper River (famous for its salmon). There are a lot of glaciers there and they create glacial silt, which is naturally a great exfoliate and cleanser for skin and I am selling it as a mud mask or facial mask. This is my first website and first business so Im trying to get it all "right" during this soft opening, before the grand opening at the end of the month. You guys are the first to see it🙂

If this isn't allowed here just let me know and Ill remove it, Just wasn't sure where I could ask for this type of help.

Thanks a bunch!

[Frustrated] What to do about scaling back your day job?

I'm not sure this is the best place to put this, please let me know if there is a better place.

I currently have a 9-5 day job and a small business that needs my attention. I try to work on it at nights and weekends, but it is hard to balance that with a family. I have 3 people working with me, but its painfully clear that they need someone at the helm with dedication to making this succeed. (No way I can afford a manager).

The job is a government job and I make a semi ok salary with amazing heath benefits and a pension. I've been told that I'm silly for giving that up. I say I am unhappy with the day job and want to peruse something far more rewarding.

I'm just not able to make $60K a year and enough for health insurance yet. What do people do? How can I effectively scale back working? Do I need to look for a new job with greater flexibility? What do all of you do?

Thank you in advance for my little rant.

Caught an Employee Stealing, it turns out he’s Homeless.

My warehouse manager caught a newer employee stealing a packing blanket. He confessed that he was homeless and literally living down by the river. He's a newer employee, he rolled up on a bicycle about a month ago and we just so happened to be short handed. He's a hard worker and we pay above minimum wage, but in CA even that just doesn't get you very far.

We let him take the blanket, asked if he needed another one, told him he could use the washer and dryer when he needed it and gave him a locker space. All I asked of him was that he do me a favor and ask me next time he needed something.

This is a family business, my dad started it and I've been running it for the past couple years. I'm still pretty young (26) and even though I've been working here for the past 8 years or so I've never really been faced with this. I haven't talked to my Dad about it quite yet. My gut tells me this is the right move, my head tells me he could take advantage of the company and we're not a charity.

Anyways, if anyone has been in this situation as an employer or employee I'd like to hear your thoughts.
