tank-style water heaters contain a sacrificial anode rod to extend the lifespan
of the tank. Water gradually eats away at the magnesium or aluminum rod,
rather than the tank lining. Anode rods should never be permanently removed from water
heaters, even to eliminate rotten eggs smells. The usable life of anode rods depends on water quality, but they should be inspected approximately every two
years. Rods that have worn away or are covered in mineral deposits should be
anode rods are relatively universal depending on length, but the manufacturer’s
recommended replacement part should generally be used. In order to inspect or
replace an anode rode, start by removing it from the tank. Make sure all water,
fuel, and power supplies to the unit have been turned off. Most anode rods have
hex heads. All anode rods are located at the top of the tank, but accessing
some of them may require the removal of the top of the water heater. Insert and
tighten the new rod if replacement is necessary. Height restrictions may
necessitate repositioning of the water heater prior to insertion. Flexible anode rods are also available for such situations. Find these and more water heater parts on PexSupply.com.
hydronic radiant heating systems function most effectively when PEX tubing is embedded in the
slab of a building. Since this is only possible in new-construction
applications, PexSupply.com offers several options for retrofit jobs. Use Uponor’s
PEX Rails to attach tubing prior to a concrete overpour. Uponor’s Quik Trak panels also go above slabs
options exist for upper floors in new and retrofit projects. In suspended-pipe
installations, PEX tubing hangs in the joist cavity. Ultra-Fin plates enhance the efficiency of suspended-pipe systems.
Stapling PEX directly to the bottom of the subfloor without any heat transfer
plates is not usually recommended. Heat transfer plates, such as Uponor’s Joist Trak, provide more even surface temperatures.
offers four options for baseboard heaters: Slant/Fin and Runtal baseboards (primarily for hydronic systems), QMark electric baseboards, and Baseboarders
universal replacement covers. All four brands come in white, but there are options
for changing the colors of each of them to match the design of a room.
residential baseboards feature a nu-white finish, but can be spray-painted in
the color of your choice. The manufacturer recommends the Rust-Oleum brand of
spray paint. Baseboarders covers have a semi-gloss white powder-coated finish
by default, but can also be spray painted. QMark covers can be painted with
high-quality enamel paints. The manufacturer recommends roughing up the
exterior with steel wool prior to painting and being careful not to allow paint
on the inside of the heater. Only Runtal radiators can be made-to-order in
custom colors. Find the list of available custom colors on Runtal’s website and
contact PexSupply to order the baseboard you need in the color of your choice.
reconfigured and redesigned Prestige IAQ thermostat improves on the
top-of-the-line thermostat which was originally released in 2008. Prestige
thermostats can still combine with RedLINK wireless devices and connect to smartphones and computers remotely via Honeywell’s Internet Gateway. They are still available with
high-definition color touchscreens, and still have USB ports to load saved settings
and speed up repeated installations for contractors.
Prestige IAQ thermostats are 60% smaller than their predecessors and feature high-gloss acrylic bodies. Equipment Interface Modules now include two additional
universal inputs. Honeywell plans to release three new color combinations for
the thermostat frame on June 1 (in addition to the standard white already on
the market). These options, along with customizable color settings for the
touchscreen, allow the Prestige to match the color scheme in virtually any
room. Go to PexSupply.com to buy the Prestige IAQ or any other Honeywell thermostat.
