Finally, A Water Heater That Plugs In

Many houses have 240-Voltage sockets for electric dryers or AC units. Some parts of the country use many older electric heating systems that also require these outlets. But most houses lack 240-Volt wiring in the closets, basements and other places where water heaters go.

With advances in heat pump technology, it is now possible to run on less electricity and still provide enough hot water on demand to keep customers happy. The new ProTerra water heater models cost between $1,900 and $3,150 depending on the capacity of the water tank and the compressor power needed to heat the water; but these new models can run off of 120-Volt sockets.

Plumbing Industry Calls On Women

The plumbing professional body has encouraged women to join the industry, saying despite significant growth in diversity, a mere 4% of women plumbers was a number that could grow if given attention.

Rendani Tshivhula a PR & Stakeholder Engagement Manager at Plumbing Industry Registration Board (PIRB) said plumbers were unsung heroes whose skills and knowledge made modern life convenient, healthy and safe.

“The problem is the stereotypes that go with plumbing, it has not been given the dignity and pride it deserves. Whether you are a lawyer, president, or any prominent person in the world you need to go to the toilet, that is how essential the plumber is. The moment we grasp this concept, we can all understand that plumbing is not gender-oriented.”
