Water damage is a terrible thing to go through; however, it helps to know that Plumbers FL Services will be there quickly and efficiently when needed. Christian and Carlos make a great team. They are friendly, polite, and hard working. They are a credit to the Plumbers FL, and I’m glad they were here to help me. Thank you Christian and Carlos and the Plumbers FL crew. I always call Plumbers FL, and recommend their services to neighbors and friends. Thank you.
We have used Plumbers Florida many times in the past. The technicians are always pleasant, professional and do outstanding work. Our last experience was with William who went above and beyond our expectations. His communication skills and advise were spot on. As well as just a really, really nice man!!!
Link showed me how his water and laundry system works. Due to the fact that he is in a dry area sadly he often needs to haul water into his property.
He has three laundry machines and I wondered immediately why a single person needs to have that many washing machines. Link explained that while his home is off the grid and fully on solar power, he still uses a normal washing machine. Since he has no nearby source of running water such as the creek I use to wash my clothes, he cannot wash clothes manually.
So he uses a generator to wash his clothes. Since the generator must have a minimum load on it in order to function properly, he has to use all three machines at the same time.
Is Link still off the grid? Yes I believe he is in that he still has no outside wires or connections. He is not self reliant. But off the grid, yes. He still needs our modern society to exist but so did the pioneers actually.
The pioneers often went down to town to get supplies. Were they off the grid? Yes, fully. Did they still need society for supplies? Yes.
Link also demonstrated a rare and very fine machine. He recently acquired a propane generator. This is a tiny little 800 watt generator similar in many ways to my little Harbor Freight generator but with a twist. This runs only on propane and has no carburetor. It also has no shut off switch. The way to shut this off is to shut off the gas valve on the propane tank. This is probably for safety so it clears the lines.
It is a nice little generator though and a rare find. Australians use a LOT of propane for daily car driving, heating and also generators.
