Plumbing Doctor Takes Initiative
We hear a lot about climate change these days, but many of us don't know how to make a difference or even where to begin. Going Green can be intimidating, but you don't have to drop $30k on a hybrid to make a difference. One Davis organization is helping to show people that there are many simple, low cost ways you can make a big impact.
The Cool Davis Initiative is tackling the climate crisis by getting the community involved in going green. The Initiative launched in 2010 and their website explains, "The Cool Davis Initiative is a network of citizens, community organizations, businesses and the City of Davis. Our mission is to inspire our community to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, to adapt to a changing climate and to improve the quality of life for all."
The description may sound vague, but the organization has some hefty and very specific goals. Their primary stated goal is to engage 75% of Davis households in 15% greenhouse gas reductions by 2015! The group is doing this by engaging the community and challenging the citizens of Davis to make positive changes in their lives.
One of the primary ways the group is getting their message out is through their flagship event, the Cool Davis Festival. The third annual Cool Davis Festival took place on Saturday, October 13th at Central Park and featured musical groups, dance performances, theater and kids activities alongside booths teaching people how they can go green.
Plumbing Doctor joined in the initiative this year and became a proud sponsor of the Cool Davis Festival. As a sponsor, we
set up a booth at the festival to educate and inform people about green alternatives to plumbing products. Our green products include tankless and solar water heaters, low flow and power flush toilets, recirculation pumps to cut down on wasted water and, our hallmark product, the Water Shield, which is a green alternative to water softeners.
The organization is quick to point out that going green doesn't have to be a sacrifice. Your quality of life can actually improve when you make green decisions and switch to green alternatives. Plumbing Doctor works hard to ensure that all our green products fit in with this principle. We test our products at our office and homes before we offer them for sale, so we know they are high quality and work as well or better than their non-green counterparts.

Plumbing Doctor Offers Financing
The economy is beginning to show signs of improvement, but unfortunately, many people are still having trouble getting a loan. To help with this, Plumbing Doctor recently teamed up with a financing company that offers convenient financing to our customers.
Plumbing problems are not fun. No one wants to spend their hard earned money on a plumbing issue. But they are a reality for many homeowners. And letting plumbing problems go can often lead to costlier problems in the future. If you've been putting off a project because of money, we now have a convenient solution for you. We are working with a company called FTL Finance to offer loans on plumbing jobs up to $5000. FLT Finance works specifically with service companies to provide lending to homeowners.

But the world of plumbing can be fascinating and fun if you know where to look. It's full of cutting-edge technology, interesting discoveries and more funny stories than you can shake a plunger at.
Here are just a few funny, interesting and exciting stories about the wide, weird world of plumbing:

We Write a Column
Plumbing Doctor's founder and CEO, Michael Farias, has long had a favorite magazine. It's not Sports Illustrated or Golf Digest. For most people, it's not considered popular or exciting. It's probably not something you've even heard of. But for a certain subset of people, it's the best magazine around. It's the Reeves Journal, the premier plumbing magazine in the western United States.
Mike has been reading the Reeves Journal for nearly two decades to keep up on the plumbing industry and ensure he offers his customers the most current plumbing products and services. So it was a great honor when Mike was asked to write a monthly column in the magazine.
Mike's column, The Doctor is In, offers advice for running a successful plumbing business. As the tagline reads, he offers "simple advice to get your service business healthy". In the column he teaches other plumbers how to use exceptional customer service to create a successful business. It's the same principles that have made Plumbing Doctor so successful with all of you.
Mike's first column will appear in the November issue of the monthly magazine. To learn more about the Reeves Journal visit their website.
