Failed Tests: just as important as Passed Tests!

Posted by:

Initially we had created a platform where passed backflow tests were submitted electronically to water purveyors. We expected that the failed tests that weren’t immediately cleaned or repaired would be a rarity–something that would occur so little that we would simply cross that bridge when we got to it. While we did cross that bridge when we arrived, we sure got to that bridge earlier than we expected.

Most backflow testers would agree that it’s atypical to have more than a few failed ...

Hello Autumn! Time to Winterize.

Posted by:

Brr! This morning has more of a chill to it than the past couple days, a reminder than Autumn is here. (Or officially will be on Thursday.)

Stop treading water! Do more than the bare minimum by hiring out.

Posted by:

I recently decided to hire a maid.  I’m totally capable of cleaning my own home. The fact of the matter is though at the end of the day, after I’ve been working 8+ hours, I want to spend my time outside–at least during Summer.  However, as soon as I start thinking about the weeds I want to pull or the blueberry bushes I want to plant, I get caught up thinking that I also need to cook dinner soon, which ...
