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…

See The NYC Restaurants Ordered Closed Last Week

NEW YORK, NY — Filth flies, roaches, mice and unwashed hands — restaurants across the city have dirty secrets they’d rather you didn’t know about. Fortunately for the diner’s well-being, New York City’s Health Department is watching. Every year, inspectors go unannounced into more than 24,000 restaurants in the city. Of them, the majority are fine, but some fall disgustingly short of the city’s cleanliness requirements. The most common violations, according to the city, are food stored at wrong temperatures, vermin, “plumbing” issues (the mind boggles) and basic food safety protocols not …

Navien 3-way Valve Replacement

Navien’s comb-boiler (NCB) has had its share of criticism and praise alike but in my opinion there is one thing that gets me a little more than excited, the fact that nearly half the boiler must be removed to replace a part that is known to fail more than most other parts on the unit. 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…
