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.


Am I being ripped off by a General Contractor?

I need to add some additional space onto my current office because we are getting a bit too big for our breaches. I am currently leasing space from an office building, and they have a 550 sqft room next to my office that I am trying to build into.

General contractor gave me a quote for $29,000. Which is fine and agreed upon. I was just hit by some news however that they need to have a fire alarm vendor come out and make sure the new space is up to code, and JUST them coming to look at it (a fire system engineer) will cost an additional $4,000. Even if everything is fine, it will cost $4,000. Is this normal?

Portable toilet hire? any experience with this

I'm looking into portable toilet hire as a side business to our existing and profitable cleaning company. I've been doing quite a bit of research and have done some forecasting, finance planning, product and pricing research etc. and I'm convinced this could be a profitable business.

I'm based in the UK and have been snooping at other local business, looked at their public accounts and like what I see.

We have a spare vehicle that we could utilise and are happy to start small, about 50 units (probably used toilets) and a single waste vacuum, my plan would be to increase this to 200 unit over 3 years.

Any experience in the field and can you give any advice? Cheers

Starting my own business LLC which will eventually have 3 DBAs under the LLC and have a few questions

I am eventually going to have 3 business. And I want them umbrellaed under my LLC. The reason for this is that they are all in the same field but each aspect needs different requirements and certifications. And I want to keep close tabs on each aspect.

I have already created my LLC and my first DBA. As money comes in and I get my certificates, the other DBAs will come in to play. When I set up my bank account, do I:

  1. Have one account with all 3 DBA's linked to the one account
  2. Set up the LLC an account and then 3 accounts, 1 for each account
  3. Or just 3 individual DBA bank accounts

And when I pay myself, do I pay myself as an employee with a paycheck or do I just pull money out to pay me?

Finally, do my DBA's have to send money up to the LLC for tax reasons or can it remain zero balance?

Social Media is my nemesis


New here, but been running my music teachering out of a physical location under a new trading name (Prelude School of Music) for just over 2 years.

I use a lot of internet advertising which hasn't done me badly at all – but I could so totally do better. I really want to get a regular youtube thing going, and everybody screams Instagram at me, but I am totally lost for content!

I also suffer with depression and anxiety problems so I am constantly second guessing myself, which is a huge hurdle with self-employment in general, never mind the constant thought that everything I create is being judged as crap.

I literally need someone to go through this with me like I'm 5. Any advice appreciated!

Website help for travel business

Just starting up my LLC. We will be selling tour packages for overseas exclusively online for individuals and groups (no flights). The process would be as follows:

  1. Customer selects desired package and date of arrival
  2. Customer provides required info and makes payment
  3. Customer receives confirmation and itinerary
  4. Company gets customer itinerary forwarded to tour guides

I'd like to know if it's worth it to go with something like Squarespace (heard too many Wix horror stories), use a builder like Divi/Beaver, or just have a professional build a WordPress site. I'm pretty knowledgeable with tech but I'm worried that it'll take too much time if I do it myself or that I'll mess something up without realizing it. Some important things are:

  • minimize recurring costs
  • automation
  • able to self-manage/expand the site after it's built
  • integration with payment systems/calendar
  • no downtime or finicky nonsense
  • multilingual

    When trying to find out a ballpark number for the cost of a professional build, I was told anywhere between $1,500 to $30,000. That's a pretty big range. So I'd like to get some insight on what the best option would be for this specific type of business. Thanks.
