Responsible Plumbing Issues

This series of podcasts is about the responsible use of water, without involving politics, histeria, alligations, half-truths, or the passion on either side of the "green" label.

I believe that every human is entitled to water and air. By our actions we are starting to deny usable water for drinking to people.

The Water Cycle

This podcast provides a general overview of water, the water cycle, and human use of it. Where it comes from, how does it get to our homes, where does it go, and what is its life cycle. We cover well water and city water supplies.

We'll touch on what is considered to be waste water (the definition may surprise you), and the distinction and different treatment of storm water, and household waste water, as well as drain venting.

Also: Pressure regulation: which includes pressure reduction or boosting. Did you know that high water pressure is the largest cause of plumbing problems? .

Should you be alarmed about "toilet to tap?" What about pharmacutical residues in waste water? I'll give you some perspective.
Duration 22:45
