Definitely not something we've ever seen around here before!
"Firefighters battling a blaze in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley were in for quite a surprise this past month when they found dozens of fish clogging one of their hydrants.
According to a report by CBC News, when fire crews tried to fill a pumper truck near the grass fire, nothing came through the dry hydrant.
“We had a hard time getting any suction from the dry hydrant,” says Fire Chief Shawn Carey, of the Aylesford and District Volunteer Fire Department. “We took it apart because we thought we might have had..."READ MORE

If your home is using a septic system, it’s important to know what should and shouldn’t be flushed down the toilet. We’ve already covered wipes, but accidentally or mindlessly tossing other common bathroom supplies into the toilet can lead to major issues!
Ladies, many of your feminine napkins and applicators often say “flush-able,” or are assumed to be. However, one of the most common septic issues occur from these items getting flushed into the system, so make sure these things are going in the trash rather than the toilet!
Keep checking back with us to see what other common items are a septic no-no, and what we can install to help out with these issues!
More often than not, most accidents and tragedies caused by carbon monoxide could have been prevented. In one specific example, Ray Wohlfarth from Plumbing and Mechanical magazine describes a school electrician who passed out while trying to detect an electrical problem in the school’s boiler room. Fast acting by the part of a secretary allowed the man to be rushed to the hospital in time to survive. The cause of this incident was one of two things: improper installation of the boiler’s flue and improper maintenance of the boiler, allowing flue gases to vent inside the boiler room and releasing high levels of toxic gas.
Had the carbon monoxide detector been connected to an alarm, the nearly fatal accident could been prevented! Installing and properly maintaining (changing batteries, ensuring it stays plugged in, etc.) a CO detector with an alarm is one of the important safety steps a homeowner can take. What’s more important, however, is the proper installation and maintenance of any equipment that has the potential to release CO and other harmful gases!

Laramie! We are beyond thrilled and honored to be titled your Favorite Plumber by the Laramie Boomerang's 2016 Local's Choice! The All In One team wants to give a giant thank you to our amazing and loyal clientele, we owe this one to you!
All In One is excited to announce that we now have thermal imaging technology! Our cool new gadget will significantly help us in detecting heat loss and how it's dispersed as well as problems with in-floor radiant heating systems. It can also help detect water leaks within walls and ceilings, as it records temperature differences and fluctuations, which are often times caused by water.
A class-action lawsuit was filed against Wal-Mart and Rockline Industries on August 5th in the US District Court Eastern District of New York.
Eugene and Victoria Richards of New Hampshire, the couple who filed, have alleged that the two companies were dishonest in marketing when selling “flushable” wipes. The wipes claim to break down when flushed, but the Richards noticed otherwise when their septic system’s leachfield failed, costing them greatly in septic and plumbing bills.
Flushing anything other than toilet paper and wastewater down a septic tank is the best way to damage it! There are many products labeled as “flushable,” but unless it is one of these two things, stay on the safe side and toss it in the trash instead.
At All In One, it’s our goal to educate our clients about how to treat their septic systems in order to avoid costly repairs to it and improve its longevity.
Stay tuned for even more of the best ways to properly manage your septic tank from the experts at All In One!
Let’s admit it… at some point in our lives, we’ve been guilty of treating the toilet as if it were a trash can, tossing things into it that aren’t even bathroom related! The plastic wrapper from the vitamin bottle, cigarette butts, paper towels, even condoms and diapers.
On a septic system, any and of all these things can pose a serious threat to the effectiveness of your system! Even if your home is not dependent on a septic, it is never a good idea to flush these items down the toilet.
Keeping a trash can right next to the toilet and reminding children not to put anything other than toilet paper in the toilet will help to keep these harmful items out of your system and money in your wallet. But even then, there’s the issue of what kind of toilet paper breaks down best in your system (look out for the next post to find out which brands don’t break down at all!).
Managing what goes down through your septic system and down to the tank is more than just flushing. If your home is on a septic, all of the drain pipes lead straight to it, whether it’s the toilet, the tub, the bathroom sink or in the kitchen. If fact, one of the most important ways to look out for your septic system is to watch what goes down the drains.
If there’s one thing we can’t ever say no to, it’s bacon. But what we should always say no to is pouring the bacon grease, or any cooking oils, down the kitchen sink! When grease enters the septic system, it kills the natural microbes that break down organic solids. A build-up of scum and grease results from this and leads to more frequent pumping and, even worse, more costs to you!
Instead of rinsing the greasy pans in the sink, pour it in a can and toss it in the trash—a simple extra step that your septic system (and wallet!) will thank you for.
While we won’t be finding bacon grease in the bathtub, a buildup of oils still occurs there, and more frequently than you’d think. Our bodies produce natural oils and most soaps contain a fair share of fats and oils as well. Because there is not a simple way to keep these oils out of the drain while showering and bathing, we offer a different solution—BioSmart.
BioSmart helps maintain your septic system naturally, no harmful chemicals or additives. It’s a drain maintainer that keeps the system clean and free-flowing by unleashing natural bacteria that thrive on grease and oil. Simply pour it down the drain and it will go to work all on its own. The best news of all is you can buy BioSmart directly from All In One!
