Highmark Plumbing has the expertise for water heater installation in Langley. Water heaters can be finicky to install, since they involve a heat source, a tank of heated water – which involves steam, and drains to carry away the used water. Many people who have lived in a home without plumbing find that a shower or bath where the water emerges from a tap without effort to be a supremely enjoyable luxury.
But that might not be the case for everyone. According to an article by Ann Saker, published in the Oregonian January 16, 2011, Oregon had experienced a spike in homes without complete plumbing since 2010. Saker comments, “No one is sure why.” Commentators speculated on the possible reasons – which ranged from noting that “complete plumbing” included a flush toilet, clean water being piped into the house, and hot water being piped to either shower or bathtub, to occupants being more interested in paying their cable bill than their water bill. A search of the Internet reveals two other possible reasons: advocates of a return to a chamber pot/outhouse system/composting toilet for disposal of waste; and pilferage of plumbing pipes. One plumber commented that he could put in copper pipes, but he would take a picture of it, and he wanted it inspected immediately – because it might not be there by morning.
