Columbia, United States - December 6, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Plumb Time Plumbing and Drain Services, a South Carolina-based residential and commercial licensed/insured master plumbing services company, is extending its offerings to include backflow prevention and testing, with representatives of the business stressing to customers the importance of avoiding cross-contamination in a water supply.

“When it comes to plumbing repairs or issues considered underrated, unknown or otherwise unattended to, the potential catastrophe of backflow must be at the top of the list for everyone – whether on a residential or commercial level,” says Plumb Time owner Manny Anderson. “Put simply, backflow is water flowing in the reverse direction in an unwanted manner, and while many home or business owners don’t think this is a big deal, it could become very serious should that backflow be caused by a contaminated source, ultimately threatening the health of those using the water supply.

“In extending our service offerings, we are now including backflow tests so customers can know if their own water supply has backflow preventers in place to protect them.”

According to Plumb Time representatives, sources that could exhibit the potential for cross-contaminating the water supply include garbage disposals, dishwashers, faucets with connected hoses, hose bibs, toilets, handheld shower heads, whirlpool baths, irrigation systems, fish ponds and swimming pools – just to name a few.

Further, Plumb Time reps often inform customers that if they are connected to a city or other type of municipal water supply, they will surely have backflow preventers in place to protect the supply up to the point where it enters a home or business; this is where it becomes the home or business owner’s responsibility to annually test for and prevent backflow issues within the structure. In fact, say Plumb Time staff, this is not an optional test in many places in South Carolina – including the capital city, where it’s required that a home or business have a backflow test conducted once a year.

Once the test has been completed, the plumber is required to fill out a Field Test Report and submit it to the city, with the individual home or business owner responsible for the cost of the testing – a common misconception amongst residents and commercial entities – as well as for ensuring the test is completed annually.

“The bottom line is that our customers’ health and safety – as well as the health and safety of their families and pets – is a top priority for us, and as such we work with them in setting up the best time to complete a backflow test, wholly dependent on their schedules,” adds Anderson.

In addition to backflow preventing and testing, Plumb Time offers services in the areas of water lines, sewer connections/lines, water heaters, leak detection/repair, slab leaks, fixture installation/repair, sinks and faucets, toilets (any style), bathtubs and showers, custom showers and shower walls, drain cleaning, sewer line repair/hydro-jetting, garbage disposals, boilers, full or partial re-piping (copper/PEX), laundry piping relocation, re-routing of lines, septic tanks, gas line installation/repair, gas leaks and inspection, video sewer camera inspection, sprinkler systems, irrigation systems, wells and pumps, kitchen and bathroom remodeling and new construction/rough-ins.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Jan 29, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 29, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Jan 29, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Jan 29, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
