President's Message

I would like to wish all of our members and associates a Happy and Prosperous New Year! As we look forward to the New Year, I always like to set goals for myself, my business, and our association. It's an exciting time to start new things and build new procedures.

Our association has always worked toward gaining more respect for our local industry and this year is no different. We will be in communication with the towns, in an effort to make inspection appointments more user friendly for all. Membership will be informed as to the progress of this issue. 

Last week we all saw the article featured in Newsday about the carbon monoxide poisoning in Garden City. Botto Brothers was called in to correct the water heater installation. The installation was done in July by a big box installer and was nothing short of a disaster, which I’m sure is attributed to why the incident happened. The water heater flue piping was not inserted all the way into the chimney liner, the spill switch on the boiler was jumped out, and the carbon monoxide detector was blocked by some boxes. A perfect storm sort of speaking. The temperature dropped, the water heater was spilling into the basement, the boiler was running without any safety spill switch, the terracotta chimney liner collapsed, and a hand full of kids were having a sleep over in the other part of the basement. 

I would ask all of our members to make sure they are aware of the importance of carbon monoxide detectors, proper venting procedures, and combustion air issues this and every winter. Remember “the plumber protects the health of the nation"!!! 

I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Plainview. Cocktail hour begins at 6:00 pm and dinner at 7:00 pm. 

Your Comrade in PHCC,

Hunter R Botto
