 Message From The President

David Nance, President
  
Happy New Year!  
 
It is both a time to reflect upon the past year as well as to look forward to a new year.  Did you meet your sales goals in 2013?  Is the economic situation better for you or still only so-so?  Have you made your new year budgets and sales goals?
 
The lead free brass law should be in full force when you read this.  I think it is up to us as professionals to install fittings that comply with new laws rather than to be concerned with testing and/or inspections of non-compliant fittings.  You never know who is watching.
 
In April of 2015 there will be new water heater efficiency regulations that will affect all of us.  We will have at least a meeting/seminar covering those changes as it gets closer, but we need to keep in mind those jobs that you're bidding on or water heater replacements in future could be greatly impacted.  We are also concerned what warranty implications there could/will be on a water heater installed today that fails after April 2015.
 
On January 15th, GIPHCC again welcomes Denny Smith as our luncheon speaker at Primo's South.  Please RSVP to Ann if attending.
  
        Have a healthy and prosperous 2014!   
  Dave Nance,
  President, GIPHCC

Lead Free Plumbing Training Online Course
This online course was developed based on a presentation made by members of  the Get the Lead Out Plumbing Consortium to provide education to industry stakeholders to promote understanding and compliance with the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act, which goes into effect in January 2014.
The online course will cover 5 major topics about the new lead free law:
  • the law and its background
  • interpretation issues relevant to the law
  • manufacturing issues surrounding the development of new lead free products
  • installation considerations for properly installing new lead free products
  • preparing for the implementation of the law
