Plumber - some facts from Wikipedia

A plumber is a tradesperson who specializes in installing and maintaining systems used for potable (drinking) water, sewage and drainage in plumbing systems.
The term dates from ancient times, and is related to the Latin word for lead, "plumbum". The word "plumber" dates from the Roman Empire.3 The Latin for lead is plumbum.
Roman roofs used lead in conduits and drain pipes4 and some were also covered with lead, lead was also used for piping and for making baths.5 In medieval times anyone who worked with lead was referred to as a plumber as can be seen from an extract of workmen fixing a roof in Westminster Palace and were referred to as plumbers "To Gilbert de Westminster, plumber, working about the roof of the pantry of the little hall, covering it with lead, and about various defects in the roof of the little hall".6 Thus a person with expertise in working with lead was first known as a Plumbarius which was later shortened to plumber.

Installation of water meter by a plumber

Professional installation of water meter may take a plumber.

It will be able not only to assume, but also seal the counter in such a way that the reading will be error.

This will allow precise determination of the amount of water used in the household and issuing the appropriate invoices, that will not in any way overpriced.

At the same time plumber will be able to advise the owners of the visited household, how they can reduce the costs associated with the amount of water consumed.

At the request will also be able to check whether at home, there is no leakage and no need to replace any seals.
Besides a good plumber can recommend the purchase of such sanitary facilities that allow you to save water.

Boiler - is that safe?

To define and secure boilers safely, some professional specialized organizations such as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) develop standards and regulation codes.

For instance, the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code is a standard providing a wide range of rules and directives to ensure compliance of the boilers and other pressure vessels with safety, security and design standards.5 Historically, boilers were a source of many serious injuries and property destruction due to poorly understood engineering principles.

Thin and brittle metal shells can rupture, while poorly welded or riveted seams could open up, leading to a violent eruption of the pressurized steam.

When water is converted to steam it expands to over 1,000 times its original volume and travels down steam pipes at over 100 kilometres per hour. Because of this, steam is a great way of moving energy and heat around a site from a central boiler house to where it is needed, but without the right boiler feed water treatment, a steam-raising plant will suffer from scale formation and corrosion.

At best, this increases energy costs and can lead to poor quality steam, reduced efficiency, shorter plant life and unreliable operation.

At worst, it can lead to catastrophic failure and loss of life.
Collapsed or dislodged boiler tubes can also spray scalding-hot steam and smoke out of the air intake and firing chute, injuring the firemen who load the coal into the fire chamber.

Extremely large boilers providing hundreds of horsepower to operate factories can potentially demolish entire buildings.
