High Mark Plumbing can help you to maintain your hot water heaters in Burnaby. Having a steady supply of hot water for various household tasks has been a concern to every household since the advent of plumbing.
A historical plumbing book by Samuel Edward Dibble, published in 1914, lists a variety of ways to keep a steady supply of hot water in the house. The list includes a kettle on the back of the stove, a tank next to a firebox, a coil of steam heat inside a boiler – he defines boilers as a tank for hot water – or even a gas coil inside a boiler. While these historical references are not precisely the same as more modern methods, they do have similarities. There must be a means to bring cold water into the container, and way to get the water out. Heat must be applied. Unfortunately, some of those early hot water heaters neglected an essential feature: a safety valve. After a few accidents caused by these early prototypes, safety valves became standard equipment. Modern hot water heaters also include a thermostat so that the water can be kept at an even temperature – not too hot, not too cold. Mama Bear would be proud.
