Modern Plumbing Donated to Breast Cancer Awareness Month for 2016!

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

breast-cancer-awareness-pink-ribbonDid you know that 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes? Breast cancer is currently the second leading cause of death among women, and each year over 220,000 women in the country will be diagnosed with it. Breast cancer affects men as well, with an estimated 2,150 diagnoses each year. This is why it is so important to contribute to funding for breast cancer research and resources for both women and men to diagnose the disease early and effectively treat it. Already, research funding has helped to contribute to a decline in death rates thanks to continually improving options for treatment and better screening.

October was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. is proud once again to have joined in the fight against this widespread form of cancer. For 2016’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, MPI donated a percentage of our October revenue to UF Health Cancer Center – Orlando Heath. These donations go to help women in need meet the expenses of their breast cancer care. To help further increase awareness among our customers, all of our MPI technicians wore pink booties on their service calls.

Please join with us in helping to shed more light on breast cancer and to honor those who have suffered from this affliction and those who are fighting to bring an end to it.

The Amazing Long Life of the Tankless Water Heater

Monday, September 26th, 2016

We are strong advocates of homeowners switching from the conventional type of water heater—one that stores water in a large tank and maintains a contestant temperature—to one of the newest line of gas-powered tankless water heaters. There are many reasons to make this change, such as the immense energy savings these water heaters provide, the small amount of space they take up, and the convenience they offer of unlimited water.

But the advantage we want to look at today is the extended lifespan of tankless systems.

All parts of the plumbing in your house are important, but some are more important than others. One of the most vital of all plumbing system components is the water line. Without this pipeline, you wouldn’t have any fresh water in your house, and many daily tasks would be difficult or fully impossible.

When the Toilet Won’t Stop Running

Monday, September 12th, 2016

One of the bathroom plumbing problems that homeowners run into the most often (after sink and shower clogs) is a toilet that continues to run long after flushing. Normally, a toilet only runs water long enough to re-fill its bowl with the water from the tank. As fresh water enters the tank, a mechanism eventually shuts off the water flow and the toilet stops running. But sometimes something can go wrong and the toilet will continue to allow water to move from the tank to the bowl and from the feed line to the tank. This is a major waste of water, and something you want repaired as soon as possible.

Florida is one of the best places in the continental U.S. to take advantage of solar energy. Solar energy systems can work even in cloudy weather, but are at their most efficient during sunny days—and Florida isn’t nicknamed “The Sunshine State” for nothing!

If you are a business owner in Orlando or Winter Springs, FL, are you already using solar energy in some way to run your company? If you aren’t, then we suggest that the first solar project you look into is a solar water heater.
