Seattle Plumbing Company Highlights Modern Pipe Lining Technology

December 06, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Seattle – Raymark Plumbing and Sewer, based in Seattle, Washington, is highlighting their trenchless plumbing repair in Seattle Washington and neighboring areas this month. The Seattle plumbing company bought the trenchless system of pipe replacement, referred to as pipe bursting, in 2001 and became the first company in Seattle to use this technology on residential side sewers.

Pipe bursting is a valuable method of repairing aged pipes without digging a large hole or a trench in the ground. Historically, the only method to replace these buried lines is by digging out the area above and around the buried lines. While effective, this method often damages lawns, gardens, pools, patios, and other permanent fixtures on a property. With the new technology, however, only a small amount of digging is required. Usually, just one or two access holes are needed.

The way the Seattle trenchless plumbing repair works is by having the new pipe pulled into the damaged pipe with a cable. The old pipe then fractures and bursts, pushing the old pipe outward. Pipe bursting is possible if the existing pipe has collapsed, and there is sufficient room to drag a cable through the old pipe.

In 2001, a project in Fremont Washington to install approximately 80’ of 4” HDPE (high-density polyethylene) pipe through an old concrete sewer line was arranged with several local inspectors from different municipalities in attendance to watch the new technology at work. Kevin Flynn, Raymark’s utility manager, was the crew lead that day and directed the city’s first-ever pull.
“It went seamlessly and impressed the inspectors” states Flynn, “It was passed as an approved method of pipe replacement across the region. Raymark continues to pipe burst sewer lines today.”

Raymark Plumbing is a family-owned company and has operated in Seattle and the surrounding communities for over 40 years. They are registered Side Sewer Contractors and are licensed to work in the City of Seattle right-of-way.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Aug 9, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Tiger quadruplets in Berlin zoo treated for knee problems

Aug 9, 2020

BERLIN — A Berlin zoo says four young Sumatran tigers are undergoing treatment for knee problems. The quadruplets were born in the summer of 2018 and as they started to develop, zookeepers noticed abnormalities in the way the cubs ran, the Tierpark Berlin said Wednesday. CT scans revealed all four tigers had knee misalignments that were causing cartilage damage. That damage is now being treated, and an expert team is to sit down in the new year to discuss long-term strategies to help the tigers. “We don't want to just rely on our own judgement. We will sit down with...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Aug 9, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Aug 9, 2020

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Aug 9, 2020

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...
