iPhone Connected Bathroom And Kitchen Fixtures From Kohler?

Kohler, one of our recommended manufacturers of faucets and bathroom fixtures, has released a new high tech innovation we are very keen to see in action.

Kohler launches Kohler Konnect smart home range of iPhone-configurable bathroom and kitchen fixtures


The new line of connected devices using Kohler Konnect mostly centers around the bathroom experience, with each including some element that users can fine tune to their preference. The Kohler Konnect companion app can be used to alter presets, such as temperatures and lighting, and in some cases, to remotely turn on elements.

A key aspect is the inclusion of voice control, allowing for the user to operate a kitchen faucet or intelligent toilet, change the lighting in a bathroom mirror, run a shower, or automatically fill a bath to a specified depth and temperature, all through vocal commands.

While the system runs on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform, and has a greater focus on using Amazon’s Alexa for automation and commands, a number of items from within the range are also able to support Apple’s HomeKit, along with the Google Assistant. In theory, this means that some of the announced items could be automated in HomeKit scenes, or for features to be remotely triggered by Siri commands.

The main featured item in Kohler’s new product range is the Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror, which is claimed to be an industry first with Amazon’s Alexa built into the unit. Containing dual microphones and hermetically sealed stereo speakers, the mirror offers LED lights for illuminating the user, a motion-activated wayfinding nightlight, and the ability to access thousands of Alexa skills.

So how does all this technology make life easier?  In our mobile device, Google Assistant, Amazon Alex connected world, it means with this sort of plumbing technology installed in your home, voice activation is now possible:

Away from the bathroom, the Sensate Kitchen Faucet offers motion-based and vocal control for water dispensing. Commands can be used to turn the water flow on or off, or to dispense water to a measured volume, for example the vocal command “Pour eight ounces.”

These are nice quality of life improvements for just about everyone.  Not mentioned here is how these voice activated innovations can make homes more liveable and convenient for our friends and family who have physical limitations.  Anyone out there in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Redondo Beach, or Venice who has physical limitations where these voice activated controls would help greatly, we would love to  be your preferred plumber on the spot to install the Kohler Konnect system here and check up with you after of few weeks of use to see how it works out for you.  Give us a call at (323) 992-6477, we would love to hear from you.


Why Water Heater Installation Should Be Handled By Your Los Angeles Plumber

Great advice that we whole heartedly agree with, from Bradford White Corporation on Why Water Heater Installation Should Be Handled By Your Los Angeles Plumber:

We know how well water heaters can work and how safe they can be when properly installed. We also know the downfall and dangers of bad installations. That’s why we believe water heaters should be installed only by professionals.

As of July 1, 2003 all conventional 30, 40 and 50 gallon residential gas-fired water heaters must comply with new, stringent standards regarding Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistance. Bradford White has created the Defender Safety System™, a cutting edge technology that fully complies with the new standard. Your professional installer knows that he can count on Bradford White to meet these requirements now and in the future.

When your family grows or when you add a large tub, a shower or even an entire bathroom, your demand for hot water increases. A professional can help you with access to models specifically built for these types of changes.

The Bradford White Defender Safety System is only available to professional installers – people whose knowledge, skill and experience ensure that the right water heater, and one designed to be very safe when installed correctly. The peace of mind you realize by having a plumber install your water heater is a priceless commodity you can get at a reasonable price.

When you hire a professional to do the installation, he’s there to back up his work and to shoulder the responsibility that comes with the job.

If you’re not familiar with what causes that rattling noise, that sulfur smell or that sudden reduction in available hot water, it’s best to do the right thing first. Call a professional.

When you call a professional to install your new water heater, you’ll get a complete and efficient job well done. The professional will answer all your questions and use all the right materials.

When you hire a professional, you’ll get delivery and careful handling of your new water heater, proper installation and removal of the old water heater from your home.

A professional can show you water heaters with improved features and higher operating efficiencies and tell you how they may negate
the need for a large capacity model.

Installing a water heater can be a challenge. An inexperienced installer could inadvertently dry-fire the elements, damage delicate parts, crossthread gas connections or forget to elevate the water heater or use earthquake strapping where necessary.

Part of the professional’s job is to properly size the water heater. That includes calculating the demands from multiple bathrooms, dishwashers, clothes washers and any other points-of-use.

It is critical to vent the unit to the manufacturer’s specifications. Improper vent size, total length or configuration can lead to a dangerous build-up of carbon monoxide inside the home.

The temperature and pressure relief valve opens to relieve pressure. Improper installation or the choice of an inadequate valve can cause damage to the water heater or a hazardous pressure build-up.

Oil and Gas-fired water heaters require knowledge of the gas or oil fuel source and an understanding of gas connections supply lines and start up. A professional has this experience and knowledge.

The choice of material types and sizes for venting, water inlet and outlet pipes and electric feed lines is best left to a professional.

When you have a professional install your new water heater, you get the most for your money as well as the satisfaction of knowing the job was completed with expertise and experience you can trust.

Water heaters are factory-set at a certain temperature for your safety. Your professional will explain the settings and the dangers of improper use of the water heater’s thermostat.

With new industry-wide design changes like the Defender Safety System™, today’s water heaters are more complicated than ever. Proper installation and service require that water heater manufacturers provide training and education. This valuable knowledge is only available to a professional installer.

After several years of good service, a water heater could leak or expel water due to pressure build-up. This could cause damage to floor coverings and other items. A professional will install a drain pan and pipe it properly to a drain.

Gas valves are designed to handle a specific type of fuel. Some gas-fired water heaters are designed for certain types of homes. Making the wrong choice can be a serious hazard.

Installation of electric water heaters requires knowledge of the properly rated wiring material as well as knowledge of the home’s electrical capacity. An adequate electrical service is a requirement.

Do you have an open or closed water system? Closed systems are subject to thermal expansion and pressure build-up. Open systems can become closed when check valves, water softeners or water
meters are added. A professional will add an expansion tank to avoid

Even if your water heater tank doesn’t rupture from thermal expansion, pressure inside the tank can cause a constriction of the flue tube. This, in turn, can cause a back up of combustion gases and carbon monoxide inside the home.

Dual-purpose models can be used for space heating and snow melting when properly connected to a hydronic piping system. A professional knows where to find these special models.

As with Bradford White’s Defender Safety System™, some water heaters cannot be purchased by the public. There are literally thousands of models with important variations and safety features that you’ll never know about unless you call a professional.

Even if your water heater is functioning adequately, maybe you’re not getting as much hot water as you need. It may be time to upgrade. It’s tough for a retailer or non-professional to advise you. A professional can give you guidance and explain your options.

If your water heater looks fine but it just won’t make hot water, a professional can diagnose what may be a simple problem. You may just need an inexpensive replacement part.

A professional has taken years to hone his craft. Installing water heaters is one of the things he does for a living. When a plumber comes into your home, he knows exactly what to do.

Because professionals often attend trade association meetings, events sponsored by water heater manufacturers and also subscribe to trade magazines, he or she is the first to know when more efficient models or technology changes are available.

In many parts of the country, state agencies and local municipalities have laws and codes governing the installation of water heaters. These laws state that a water heater must be installed by a licensed professional.

30 Reasons to Buy A Water Heater from a Professional Installer.” Bradford White | 30 Reasons to Buy A Water Heater

The Rocket Plumbing take?  We all take this luxury for granted until it’s gone, wouldn’t you agree?

Our years of experience with water heaters means we can get the job done faster and safer than most people can.  Value your time and family safety, let us handle it and enjoy the peace of mind and that luxurious HOT water for all your bathing and showering.

Tankless Water Heater Market to Reach an Estimated Value of US$ 25,498.5 Mn by 2024

“According to the latest market report published by Persistence Market Research titled ‘Tankless Water Heater Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast, 2016 – 2024’, globally, the revenue generated from sales of tankless water heater market is estimated to be valued at US$ 16.9 Bn by 2016 end, and is expected to increase at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period (2016–2024)”

Our take:  We see more and more tankless water heater projects every year, and are big fans of these in our own homes.  They really are terrific innovations, so those numbers don’t shock us in the least.

Heatworks Unveils New Connected Water Heater & Dishwasher – CES 2018

“Heatworks has just unveiled a new connected water heater and dishwasher called the Model 3 and Tetra respectively, two new smart home devices that consumers can look out for in 2018. The Tetra, a new device category from Heatworks, is a counter top dishwasher that aims to make washing dishes not only smarter but space-saving as it can fit on your kitchen counter. While this isn’t necessarily meant to replace traditional dish washers which have quite a bit more room, it could be used as a way to expand the amount of dishes you can wash at once, as running out of room in the dishwasher is a common issue that people run into often enough.”

Our 2 cents: In Los Angeles, where price per square foot affects nearly everyone, space is a premium.  A combo Water Heater/Dishwasher is a pretty neat idea.  We are hesitant to recommend new tech until we’ve had an extensive look at the technology and installation specs.  In the meantime, our recommendation for tankless water heaters are from Rinnai.  For Los Angeles Water Heater Installation, give us a call at  (323) 992-6477

The center is the fourth of five Rheem training facilities to open across the U.S. and Canada

Rheem, a leading manufacturer of water heaters, is celebrating the grand opening of its newest Innovation Learning Center outside of Dallas.

100, 000 Houston Air Conditioners May Be At Risk Of Failure

Houston-area homeowners and businesses with properties damaged by the recent historical flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey are potentially facing looming problems with their climate control systems that may not be obvious to the untrained eye.

The Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute, a trade association representing the heating, ventilating and air conditioning warns standing water associated with flooding can result in system failure well after the water has receded.

“Standing water in a yard or house can damage a home’s heating and cooling system in ways that are not always readily apparent, ” said Stephen Yurek, president and CEO of AHRI. “We advise homeowners to play it safe and replace, rather than repair, flood-damaged heating, cooling, and water heating equipment.”

More than 134, 500 residences in the ten-county Houston area have been damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Harvey, according to a report from the Texas Division of Emergency Management. Any air conditioning unit that has taken on water is potentially damaged. Most water-damaged units may need to be replaced, according to AHRI. A flooded home comfort system is similar to a flooded car. It may appear to operate normally, but may be prone to suffer serious problems due to the long-term impact of the water damage.

While AHRI recommends replacing a water-damaged HVAC system, the timing of when to replace is important, according to Houston-area dealers: “The vast majority of damaged homes and businesses are having drywall work done plus hardwood floors sanded, ” said Corey Boyer, owner of Air Aide, a Houston HVAC service company. “In these cases consider whether it is best to wait to run the new system until the drywall work and floors are finished because you don’t want to circulate dust and debris through a new system. It will likely contaminate it.”  Source: ReevesJournal.com

Los Angeles adds more public toilets to help homeless on Skid Row

Los Angeles officials are attempting to help homeless on Skid Row in downtown L.A. with the addition of the new Skid Row Community ReFresh Spot hygiene center, a structure to serve homeless with showers, toilets and staff offering referrals to housing and services.

The restrooms also are a response to the fight against a statewide hepatitis A outbreak spread by poor hygiene in homeless camps that has killed more than a dozen people in San Diego.

They will have full-time attendants, called “ambassadors,” to monitor the restrooms and make people feel welcome.

The latest $450,000 facility will have eight toilets and six showers, operating four days a week, in a trailer on a city-owned parking lot between two homeless housing and service agencies. In addition to attendants, the toilets will be monitored by a maintenance crew and security.

Gas Pipe Repair and why it matters to you

A natural gas leak is a potentially hazardous situation. The most obvious sign that you will need to call Rocket Plumbing for a Gas Pipe Repair is by smell. We recommend you immediately go to to a safe location and immediately call us, at anytime day or night.

Some plumbers even specialize in the natural gas line engineering, and specialize in only installing natural gas lines for a variety of home projects. We can install or repair water heaters, HVAC systems, fireplaces, stoves and even outdoor grills, all things that are susceptible to gas leaks. All our plumbing contractors are licensed and are preselected before being hired at Rocket Plumbing to be fully capable of tackling any gas repair problems.

What to Do if You Suspect a Natural Gas Leak? If you smell a natural gas odor, and trust us, it should be OBVIOUS it’s gas by that smell, or maybe you hear the hissing sound of gas escaping or see other signs of a leak: IMMEDIATELY EVACUATE the area. Treat it like a Plumbing EMERGENCY, not a routine repair.  And please, definitely DON’T smoke, or light a match, candle or other flame.

What you can expect to pay for various gas leak repairs? Repairing or replacing a gas line to a single appliance usually costs anywhere from about $150 to $650. That includes labor and materials. Replacing the gas line running to the house costs $3,000 to $7,000 in most cases (labor and materials). Keep in mind, we offer the Best Los Angeles Plumber Coupon which will take $49 off the top of any project that exceeds the $200 minimum, which is well under typical gas leak repair jobs.

Most people will assign a plumber to two categories, commercial and residential plumbers, and will limit their options to calling one or the other. Our plumbers are all licensed in both categories, precisely because gas leak repair is so crucial, sometimes even life saving, service.

Plumbing Systems that we service

Any utility consisting of the pipes and fixtures for the distribution of water or gas in a building and for the disposal of sewage counts as a Plumbing System. Modern engineering innovations have added further specificity and specialization such that they deserve special attention from every plumber worth their salt.  Plumbing in the state of California is regulated and all licensed plumbers should be informed on the latest technology and standards about these important systems.

Water Supply System

A home’s water supply system routes municipal water from the street to the building, where it then is routed to faucets, showers, toilets, bathtubs, and other appliances such as the water heater, dishwasher, and washing machine.

This is done mostly with water pipes, fittings, service valves, and faucets. Plastic, copper, or galvanized iron are the materials used for these pipes. Lead, although used in ancient times and the root word that lead to the word Plumber, is no longer used because of it’s toxicity. Modern pipes range in diameter anywhere from 1/2 inch to 4 inches or even more.

Drain-Waste-Vent System

What are the typical Vents & Drains in Home Plumbing?

The most important system is the drain-waste-vent (DWV) system. The important task the drain-waste part of the system handles is carrying away the waste water and sewage from the sinks, bathtubs, showers, toilets, and water-using appliances into the septic tank or public sewer.

Key to the plumbing systems working correctly is venting sewage gases properly to keep the correct pressure on fluids and gases so that drianage is correct and dependable.

The most common problem that comes up with the Drain-Waste-Vent System are clogged drains. Because the system resides in the walls, beneath floors and/or in attics, they are often overlooked by property owners. Routine inspections are necessary to stay on top of the health of the system.

Kitchen Plumbing System

Key to most property owners’ kitchens include the accessibility of hot and cold water flowing to the faucets, with a properly functioning waste line for the sinks. Many of these kitchen sinks are also connected to the dishwasher, garbage disposals, icemakers in refrigerators. These connected systems elevate the need for constant inspection of the Kitchen Plumbing systems to ensure cooking and cleaning is trouble free and maybe most important of all, FAST!
