Followup: Heater Hauler “body bag”

Hauling out old, leaking and dirty tank water heaters can be a messy job. I’ve covered walkways with drop cloths, tarps or plastic in attempt to contain the dripping water, soot or rust and still have had carpets get soiled; not since we started using the “body bag” heater hauler. It’s a giant duffel with a water resistant lining inside that contains the mess. It’s always on my truck and I haven’t had to hire a carpet cleaner for years now.

Sound Off: What are the most common maintenance pitfalls when selling or buying a home?

A: The market’s listings look great with the newly installed flooring, fresh paint and brand-new kitchen countertops. Staging furniture makes it look fantastic, but what’s really going on underneath it all? Some of the common maintenance issues that get overlooked by consumers are drainage, the condition of the foundation, dry-rotted wood on rafter tails and windows, and rats in the attic and crawlspace. Part of the reason the current sales prices are so high is almost every house goes on the market staged, painted, inspected, repaired and updated. Buyers want the house to be in p…

Aide to Penn. Gov. Candidate Sends Anti-Trans Caitlyn Jenner Meme

A campaign consultant to Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner apparently thinks it’s OK to make fun of transgender people.

Brown's Ford looking to create an addition

Brown’s Ford looking to create an addition

Today’s breaking news and more in your inbox Engineer Joseph Bianchine of ABD Engineers LLP addresses a proposed Brown’s Ford project at the Johnstown City Planning Board meeting Tuesday at City Hall. (The Leader-Herald/Michael Anich) JOHNSTOWN — The city Planning Board reviewed a site plan for a proposed vehicle maintenance addition to the Brown’s Ford dealership on Route 30A Tuesday afternoon at City Hall. The board declared itself lead agency for the project’s required state Environmental Quality Review. Board Chairman Peter K. Smith also noted that City Code requires a public hearing on the project. The hearing was set for 4 p.m. Oct. 2 at City Hall. He said final action on Brown’s application may be taken by the board then. Engineer Joseph Bianchine of ABD Engineers LLP of Schenectady presented Brown’s project to the board. Brown’s wishes to construct a 4,800-square-foot metal building addition to its existing 121 N. Comrie Ave. building. The addition would be at the rear northwest corner. The new space will be used for maintenance of vehicles. The add on would occupy a paved area so there will not be an increase in stormwater runoff. No plumbing facilities are anticipated in the addition. One shed will be removed and relocated on site, if necessary. Bianchine said the addition will sit back, but will be seen from North Comrie Avenue. He said the project will have no new outdoor lighting, and no additional signage. Smith said the project must be referred soon to the Fulton County Planning Board for its review because of its proximity to a state highway. Michael Anich covers Johnstown and Fulton County news.

Chicago home where 10 kids died in fire hit with violations

More than 40 code violations have been issued to the owner of a Chicago apartment building following a fire that killed 10 children earlier this week, according to city records. The violations include failing to provide working smoke detectors, which firefighters have said likely would’ve saved the children’s lives. City inspectors cited the owner three years ago for a missing smoke detector in the same unit where Sunday’s fire began. The Sunday fire — the city’s deadliest blaze in more than a decade — started in the rear of the building during a sleepover. The children who died ranged in…

As you’ll see in the video the PCB, main control panel, some internal [and external] piping and circ pump all must be fully removed in order to gain access to a failed 3-way diverter valve. If you’re not sure what the valve does, you may not be alone but its really quite simple; when idle the v…

How To: Turn Off Your Home’s Water

Chances are there’ll come a time when you’ll have to turn off the water supply in your home. You may need to do so for a scheduled plumbing repair or before leaving on a long trip. Then there are the emergency situations—such as when a pipe bursts somewhere behind the drywall or your bathroom is flooded with water—at which point there’s often very little time to react. What’s more, closing and re-opening the valves periodically will prevent them from getting stuck in place and allow you to inspect them for corrosion or broken connections. So it makes sense to familiarize yourself…

Kiski Area schools’ drinking fountains pass lead testing

Updated 10 hours ago Three spigots — two at Davis Field and one at North Primary School — are the only sources of water in the Kiski Area School District failing lead testing. Over the past year, the district conducted comprehensive testing of all water sources in the district, checking lead levels in the water. More than 200 other water sources in the district all have passed recent testing. No drinking water fountains failed the testing. In a report to the school board this week, Jim Perlik, district director of buildings and grounds, said initial testing of water devices such …

Ulster Superbikes: Gerard Kinghan retains Norman Brown Memorial Trophy at Bishopscourt

Kinghan holds a commanding lead in the championship and quickly asserted control in race one at Bishopscourt in Co Down, managing his pace from the front as he closed out victory by two seconds from Alistair Kirk (AKR/McCurry Motorsport BMW).

What To Do Before The Next Flood

We’ve had a lot of rain in Verona this… FEMA maps show the flood possibilities along the Peckman, but many other Verona neighborhoods took on water in the August 11 storm. We’ve had a lot of rain in Verona this summer. Instead of the normal 4.75 inches of rain in July, we had more than 6 inches. There was more rain at the beginning of August, so that by the time the skies opened up here on Saturday, August 11, the ground here couldn’t hold any more rain and, in more than a few places, it simply gave up trying. The torrential rain–about 5 inches in just an hour–streamed downhill from Verona’s eastern and western ridges, flooding roads, houses and businesses in its way. And not just places in the center of town along the Peckman River. It could happen again, and the damage your property avoids depends on what you do now. We talked to local construction and plumbing experts to get some tips. A French drain can be installed in your basement, or outside around your house or in-ground pool.Basement First: Inspect the foundation walls in your basement for cracks, seal any you find and apply a waterproofing paint. If you don’t already have a sump pump, install one. And not just any kind, says Bill LaRiccia, a long-time plumber in Verona. “Now, you have to have a pump that has a battery backup,” he says. That way, if the power fails, your pump won’t fail too. John Visentin, another Verona plumber, is partial to water jet sump pumps. Rather than rely on a battery that will eventually run out of power, the water pump uses municipal water to power the pump until the electricity comes back on. A French drain can be installed in your basement, or outside around your house or in-ground pool. Consider calling professionals to install a French drain. This will involve busting through the existing concrete in your basement floor and having a perforated drainage pipe installed. (It’s then covered by gravel and concrete, so you won’t have an open ditch downstairs.) Installing a French drain will cost several thousand dollars, but that could be far less than the damage a flood does. Talk to your plumber, too, about installing a sewer check valve (also known as a backwater or backflow valve), on your home’s sewer main. This can help prevent sewage from backing up in your house if stormwater floods the municipal sewer lines. But Michael DeCarlo, Verona’s township engineer, says residents need to understand the implications before taking this step. “By preventing water from coming back you’re also preventing water from going out,” he says. “So during a suspected flooding event people cannot flush or use any water in the home. It would have no place to go.” Finally, flood-proof your basement decorating: Elevate whatever you can, use indoor-outdoor rugs and put critical documents in watertight containers–or in a safety deposit box at the bank. Redirect The Rain: When heavy rain falls, a solid roof and a well-functioning system of gutters and leaders can direct it away from the inside of your house. Tom Jacobsen, who heads Verona’s construction code office, says you’ve got to make sure all your gutters and downspouts are clear of debris that could block water from flowing down. That means cleaning the gutters every fall after the leaves fall, and perhaps again in the spring if your house is near trees like maples that cast off potentially clogging seed pods. Clog-free gutters and leaders will also prevent ice dams from forming when winter comes. Then invest in downspout extensions and splash blocks, which can redirect rainwater away from your foundation. If your downspouts are directly connected to a storm drain, think about getting them disconnected. It sounds counterintuitive, but using extensions to spread rainwater across your property allows it to naturally filter into the water table rather than immediately overload the storm drains. Permeable paving on driveways and parking lots can cut heavy runoff into storm drains.Mind The Landscape: If your yard tilts toward your foundation, it will drain stormwater that way too. Jack McEvoy, a Verona Town Council member, runs a home inspection business and he says you’ve got to pitch all your landscaping–and any hardscaping from patios to driveways–away from the house. Some Verona homeowners with sloping yards have put French drains around the outside of their homes, and their in-ground pools. If you are putting in a new patio or driveway, consider using permeable paving materials instead of concrete or asphalt. They can help rain to naturally filter into your property, instead of making a mad dash for the storm sewer. Don’t cut down mature trees on your property unless they are diseased. McEvoy notes that the large root systems of a mature tree can absorb hundreds of gallons of water that might otherwise flood your basement. Plant new trees wherever you can; a dwarf fruit tree will give you something to eat while it soaks up the rain. And if there is a low spot on your property that constantly turns into a water hazard, install a rain garden there. All gardens love rain, but a rain garden is developed around plants that really love to have wet roots, like birch trees and cranberries. Rutgers University, which has a website devoted to helping property owners construct rain gardens, notes that a rain garden lets 30% more water to soak into the ground than a conventional lawn. That can keep storms from overloading town storm systems. Remember that the August 11 storm sent 42 million gallons of water into Verona’s wastewater treatment plant, compared to 4 million gallons on a normal day. Let a rain garden absorb stormwater before it hits your foundation.Consider flood insurance: As too many residents have likely discovered by now, regular homeowners or renters insurance policies do not cover floods. But you can buy separate flood insurance, which can pay out whether or not there is an official disaster declaration. It isn’t cheap, but neither is replacing everything in your basement after a storm. The Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), notes that one inch of water in a home can cause more than $25,000 in damage. Your first stop should be FEMA’s website, which has detailed maps that can assess your flood risk. But simple observations can help too. If your property sits lower than those of your neighbors, or you’ve lost a lot of big trees in your neighborhood, you could be a flood risk. According to FEMA, more than 20% of flood claims come from properties outside high-risk zones. As climate change creates stronger storms, we will all be at greater risk of flooding. Plant trees, create a rain garden and be part of the discussion when Verona sits down to talk about new stormwater regulations.

DeKalb, metro school buildings need thousands of fixes

A clutter of garbage cans sit in a hallway at DeKalb School of the Arts. Above, ceiling tiles have been removed to let water fall freely from a leaking HVAC system. The school year just started, and many issues — no air conditioning, leaks throughout buildings, crumbling ceiling tiles and filthy carpet — among those to be addressed by the DeKalb County School District are holdovers from previous years. “The average age of a (DeKalb County School District) school campus is more than 40 years old, so our maintenance demands are significant,” district officials said Frida…

Baxter to conduct smoke tests of sanitary sewer

The City of Baxter will be conducting smoke testing of the sanitary sewer system over the next two months The study involves accessing the sanitary sewer manholes located in the streets and utility easements. A special smoke will be blown into the sanitary sewer system to reveal leaks, defects and cross-connections with storm sewer or surface water collection systems. A non-toxic smoke will be used for the tests. The smoke is designed for this purpose, leaves no residue or stains, and has no effect on the health of plants, animals or humans, the city of Baxter reported. The smoke has a distin…
