Earth Day Is April 22

Our Focus: Help Protect Water Systems

Earth Day April 22, 2019 - Madison Wisconsin

Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical, Inc. has something to say about Earth Day this year. By way of reminder for everyone, this year’s Earth Day, is set to inform you about creating a big impact on protecting our water systems as well as the enviroment. Along with Judy Wohlt, PMI Communications Team, for Valek and Co., it is our hope to educate each individual resident in Madison and surrounding cities in Dane county, about honoring and protecting the water systems here in Madison and in the state of Wisconsin.

In addition to being advocates for protect of water systems, our Earth Day Challenge In Madison can also be a day of action on your part by finding out more about your participation in Madison events already scheduled: Find Out More Now

This year, Earth Day provides a great platform for plumbing companies like Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical, Inc  and our nations leading manufacturing companies and other businesses to make pledges and announce their overall sustainability efforts for 2019 all around the nation. Activities can include collaborating on local environmental projects, voting for leaders committed to protect the public and the environment, and sharing acts of green to help educate and inspire others to join the Earth Day movement.

Did you know that more than 1 billion people in 192 countries take part in Earth Day? The truth is we believe that more than 1 billion people in 192 countries now take part in what is the largest civic-focused day of action in the world.

A political action and civic participation community around the world, people march, sign petitions, meet with their elected officials, plant trees, clean up their towns and roads just to mention a few benefits of the popular celebrations. Corporations and governments use it to make pledges and announce sustainability measures. Faith leaders, including Pope Francis, connect Earth Day with protecting God’s greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on.

In the plumbing industry around this country and around the world, Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) this year has released some pretty defining information you need to know and understand about water systems. PMI does work daily to assure and advocate the ongoing protection of water systems.

Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) advocates for the restoration of America’s aging underground water infrastructure to save water and improve water and sanitation safety. The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) gave the U.S. drinking water and wastewater systems D grades on its most recent Report Card for America’s Infrastructure. Among the nation’s most significant challenges are 850 water main breaks a day, according to the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that more than 1.7 trillion gallons of treated water are lost to leaks annually, with 16 percent of the treated water never reaching the tap.

Water supplies in America are becoming strained due to drought and regional population growth, as well, making a strong and efficient water infrastructure all the more important. Less precipitation in California and other states has dramatically reduced mountain snowpack and the amount of water stored in reservoirs. See the U.S. Drought Monitor, which shows parts of the country currently being affected by drought. In addition, there is greater demand for water in arid regions where population is growing, such as southern California, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) advocates the restoration of the United States’ underground water infrastructure to reduce risks to safe, sustainable drinking water and promote the efficient use of water. This solution will end catastrophic leakage and public safety hazards resulting from the current, aging infrastructure. The deterioration of the nation’s aging underground water infrastructure also has an adverse effect on public health and safety, as seen most dramatically in Flint, Mich., as well as in other cities and town across the nation.

PMI and its members are doing their part, and remember that Action and PMI are committed to its vision of “Safe, responsible plumbing. Always.” As a key component in the overall water system, and support the value of products that maximize the efficient use of water. Creating a safe and efficient expanded underground water infrastructure that will meet the needs of all Americans, even those living in regions affected by water shortages is just the beginning of the process.


 Did You Know Earth Day Began in Wisconsin?

Earth Day Began in Wisconsin Earth Day Founder Gaylord Nelson -Senator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day to educate people about the environment after he saw the damage done by a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California.

U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson, our Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson was born in Clear Lake, Wisconsin on June 4, 1916 and died on July 4, 2005. Nelson served in the Wisconsin State Senate from 1949 to 1959, as Governor of Wisconsin from 1959-1963, and in the United States Senate from 1963-1981.

Madison Water Utility Program

I Want Action Now - Your Madison Plumber

The City of Madison will begin flushing hydrants across the city starting April 8th.

It’s a tall order. Every spring, Madison Water Utility crews set out to clear mineral sediment from some 900 miles of water main. They spend months moving from neighborhood to neighborhood, opening up more than 2,500 fire hydrants to flush iron and manganese out of the city’s water pipes.

“It takes about 8 or 9 months, usually from April to Thanksgiving,” says Shayne Santi, who oversees Madison Water Utility’s water main flushing program. “The goal is to flush the whole city one way or another.”

But Santi says it didn’t used to be that way.

“We used to flush just two weeks in the spring and two weeks in the fall. It was that way up until 2005.”

That’s when Madison Water Utility faced public outcry over naturally-occurring manganese in the city’s drinking water. A shift in pumping patterns had made Madison’s longtime manganese issue even worse, and it became clear that cleaning mains for just four weeks a year wasn’t enough. Utility officials were pushed to make a change.

"That unfortunate circumstance actually turned to a good thing," insists water chemistry expert Abigail Cantor, P.E., who has worked with Madison Water Utility and other utilities across the country to conduct water quality investigations.

Cantor helped Madison revamp its flushing program. She points out that, these days, it's not just the utility's focus on flushing that sets it apart from many utilities across the Midwest. It's the type of flushing the utility now conducts—a procedure developed in the early '90s known as unidirectional flushing.

"Doing unidirectional flushing versus standard flushing is very important. With unidirectional flushing, you achieve a very high velocity through the pipe and really scour the debris off the pipe walls. You don't stop flushing until you actually measure on a turbidimeter (a device that measures the relative clarity of water) that ... it's very clean."

Madison Water Utility now spends about $300,000 a year on water main flushing alone. About 300 miles of main located in parts of the city where water contains elevated levels of iron and manganese are flushed using the unidirectional method.

"Madison is on the forefront of doing unidirectional flushing and having a routine protocol for doing that," Cantor says. "It's essential for achieving the best water quality that can be achieved."

“Overall the water quality is night and day, in the downtown area especially,” adds Santi.

MWU installed iron and magnanese filters at this north side well as part of a $5.3 million facility overhaul

The utility has also spent millions of dollars installing iron and manganese filtration systems at some well facilities and is stepping up its water main replacement program. It's all part of a multifaceted approach to dealing with what Cantor calls a common water quality problem in the Midwest. Communities throughout the area have high levels of iron and manganese in their groundwater. Cantor has examined the water quality in so many of those places and beyond, she's lost count.

"It's like I'm a pipe whisperer," she laughs. "You can see amazing things if you take water samples in a strategic way ... You can come to some really good conclusions about what is shaping your water quality – the interaction of the water with the piping material and the debris on the pipes."

But she says despite its success, a comprehensive flushing program like the one enacted by Madison Water Utility eleven years ago is still pretty rare.

"The flushing and pipe replacement typically get on the bottom of the budget list in most utilities. There's a big impact of the cleanliness of the pipe on water quality. That sounds like common sense, but for some reason, it's not.”

Still, Shanti says there are signs that other utilities are starting to take notice of the program and the benefits of unidirectional flushing.

“I’ve had a lot of different water utilities call and ask about what’s we’re doing and ask for advice on how to get a flushing program going,” he says.

Water Conservation & Sustainability Goals

Our annual water use drops by a billion gallons in six years

Thursday, January 17, 2019 - 10:01am

Action Plumbing Heating Air Conditioning Inc Thanks Madison Residents!

According to the Madison Water Utility Officers, you helped our city to reach our goals set in 2006 that called for an astounding 20% reduction in per-capita residential water use one year ahead of schedule. This is a fantastic achievement. Thank you for doing your part in helping to make this a momental year in our region.

We believe our clients are the best! If you would like to begin to enhance sustainability in your home in 2019, please contact us here at Action Plumbing, Heating, A/C & Electric Inc. Call us today! Madison, WI: 608-249-3747 Sun Prairie, WI: 608-837-3638.

Please read this press release:

After hitting a 50-year low in 2017, water use in Madison was down once again in 2018. Madison Water Utility pumped 9.2 billion gallons of water to homes and businesses across the city last year, about 200 million gallons less than the year before – and more than a billion gallons less than the utility pumped in 2012. It marks the 4th consecutive year water use has been below 10 billion gallons, even though Madison’s population is growing.

“We’re still adding buildings, homes, apartments,” says Madison Water Utility Chief Financial Officer Robin Piper. “People are still getting all the water they need. They’re just using it more efficiently, and thinking a little bit more about that water. Customers are doing their part to help us conserve.”

Per-capita water use for customers living in single-family homes has dropped to the lowest level in at least the last 20 years. Residential customers used 53 gallons per-person per day in 2018. Back in 1988, that number was 80 gallons per person.

The drop in per-capita water use means the City has hit its water conservation and sustainability goal set in 2006 that called for a 20% reduction in per-capita residential water use by 2020, based on a five-year rolling average.

“It’s huge,” says Madison Water Utility supply manager Joe DeMorett. “There were serious doubts we could get down to that level, actually. We were pumping well over 10 billion gallons of water a year. And to be down around 9 billion now, I think is incredible.”

DeMorett says another wet summer in 2018 meant fewer people were out watering lawns and gardens. He also points to more efficient appliances and plumbing fixtures, as well as a sharp decline in industrial water use.

“You’ve got the low-flow toilets, washing machines. And there are certain industries that have been here forever that are just gone, like Oscar Mayer and the dairies. They moved out.”

Industrial water use in Madison is down 73 percent from just seven years ago. Both Oscar Mayer and Bimbo Bakeries, two national food companies, have left Madison in recent years. Madison’s last remaining dairy operation closed its doors in 2009.

Madison Water Utility has also been working hard to encourage conservation through its popular Toilet Rebate Program, which has saved nearly a billion gallons of water since 2009. And more than 12,000 people have signed up to use the utility’s online conservation tool that allows customers to track their weekly, daily and even hourly water use.

So far in 2019, water use in Madison is down 7 percent from this time last year.

Delta Faucet’s Innovation Lab Debut

 

For Your Home

Join us in taking a look at the latest residential glass washer for your kitchen sink at home...that's right for your home. A ridiculously clever way to help get bottles, cups, and glasses clean. In its first product offering for the consumer market, the First Wave Innovation Lab at Delta Faucet Company has reimagined the Glass Rinser, a common bar and restaurant fixture, to be installed for residential use with the help of Indiegogo’s Enterprise Services. Please read from the latest press from Delta: 

"The Glass Rinser is designed to be low-profile and easy to use, and may be installed alongside a new or existing residential sink or faucet. When the user presses a household drinking vessel onto the rinser, including baby or water bottles, a powerful, center-positioned rinsing spray will jet in several directions to rinse off residue or dust. The rinser’s runoff water funnels directly into the sink below.

"The Glass Rinser is a perfect example of what our Innovation Lab can accomplish, taking a product with longstanding commercial value and reimagining it for use in home kitchens," says Missi Tate, senior marketing manager at Delta Faucet Company. "Our market research showed us that customers were interested in a solution to more efficiently and effectively rinse items at the kitchen sink, so we decided to make that concept a reality."

To test the Glass Rinser before mass production, First Wave has made use of Indiegogo Enterprise Services, which allows established companies to use the crowdfunding platform’s user base as “early advocates and market validators” for upcoming products. Early adopters will be able to receive the Glass Rinser through its Indiegogo campaign at a discounted price from October 22 through November 19, with delivery expected in October 2019.

"We're excited to partner with Delta Faucet and its new brand, First Wave, to bring new and innovative products to market," says Gwen Nguyen, Vice President of Indiegogo Enterprise Services. "The launch of the Innovation Lab at Delta Faucet is another great example of large companies taking a lean, startup approach to testing and validating innovation. Indiegogo and its global community of early adopters are thrilled to be part of this transformation at First Wave."

Technology for bars and commerceial kitchens has exploded into the residential market this year. While testing is still ongoing, what a wonderful way to look at new products from Delta, one of the leading manufacturers of plumbing equipment around the world. The first residential glass washer to hit the market in an industry still growing.

The Glass Rinser is an ingenious new gadget from the people at First Wave—the innovation lab inside Delta Faucet Company. It solves the age-old problem of hard-to-clean residue by powering it away before it dries.

  • The Glass Rinser installs easily to your cold or hot water supply line. We recommend using hot water if you plan on using your Glass Rinser to handwash items.
  • Mounts in a standard countertop hole.
  • Pre- Order With New upgrade parts
  • Makes rinsing easy. Or, add a bit of soap to your dirty item for easier handwashing and disinfecting.
  • No on/off switch. Simply push down for powerful rinsing action.
  • All spray nozzles are centrally located. Perfect for narrow items.
  • Powerful spray nozzles power away residue.
  • Easy to install. Just mount to sink and connect to a water supply line (we recommend using hot water, especially if you plan on handwashing items).
  • Rinses an incredibly wide array of cups, bottles, and glasses.

Or, if you’re old school, the First Wave Glass Rinser makes it easier than ever to wash items by hand. Simply add a bit of dish soap to your dirty item, then press it down on the rinser. Boom. It’s clean in no time.

The Glass Rinser installs easily to your cold or hot water supply line. We recommend using hot water if you plan on using your Glass Rinser to handwash items. Call Action Plumbing Heating A/C & Electric Inc. today and find out how to pre-order yours
