Plumbing News Roundup: July 2022

The plumbing industry is constantly evolving. This month Paul Faget starts up a tool library, the new Essency EXR Water Heater is introduced to the industry, Pro-Tech Plumbing opens a new location, and a water leak floods the LSU art gallery. Keep on reading our news roundup for more details.

The Tool Lending Library

Paul Faget believes that you don’t need to own a drill to drill a hole in the wall. The same goes for the tile cutter that helped replace the backsplash in your kitchen or the eight-foot ladder you used to paint your living room. Very few homeowners need a shed or basement full of tools when so many things people store are used for only one project.

That’s where the Louisville Tool Library at 1227 Logan St. comes in. The new Shelby Park-based nonprofit challenges modern consumption by promoting a credit economy. This tool library creates the opportunity to repair and maintain your home without breaking your wallet, draining resources, or cluttering up your storage space.

New Essency EXR Water Heater Breaks Water Heating Tradition

The Essence EXR’s intuitive control panel offers one-tap setup, smart, and heat+ modes. Easily accessible buttons allow users to customize their EXR for vacation, boost, and water-saving “quick functions”. The free MyEssency app also offers smartphone control from anywhere.

Designed in France as the world’s first on-demand tank water heater, the Essency EXR combines tank and tankless benefits in one system that’s easy to install, use, and enjoy. For all the specs on this new water heater check out

Water Leak Floods LSU Art Gallery

A water leak on the top level of the Shaw Center for the Arts caused the closure of the LSU Museum of Art. A water leak from the floor above caused water to run down the ceilings and caused damage to ceilings, walls, cabinets, and floors in four different galleries in the 15,000-square-foot space. The cause of the leak was a ruptured high-pressure water valve that fed a water heater.

Two new exhibitions, Blurring Boundaries: The Women of American Abstract Artists, 1936 – Present and Mario Moore: Responding to History, were scheduled to open Thursday but have been postponed. Nine employees worked two hours to remove and store the artworks. No art was damaged during the water incident.
