15 Oct , 2016   Video

Former ESPN Director Kevin Kreppein and his wife Nancy recently spoke to the CRESN membership about their exciting new travel comfort system called TripGear.

TripGear is the first product that allows you to rest fully and comfortably while seated upright.

For over a century, travelers have been tinkering with pillows and eye masks, hoping to find a better solution to sleeping on the move. Advances in technology and sleep science have allowed TripGear to develop the first and best solution for a restful, deep sleep while sitting.

Based on feedback from licensed chiropractors and avid travelers, the Comfort System by TripGear is designed to provide restful, restorative sleep in less-than-ideal conditions. The system utilizes the traveler’s own body weight, supporting sleep with a headband, arm hammock, and neck pillow sleeve that attaches to almost any standard neck pillow. more!

Member Andrew Schwartz of Green Frog Waterproofing recently addressed the CRESN members about the process used to provide professional waterproofing solutions that his company offers to their Charlotte, North Carolina customers.

Call 980-202-1222

Water can have many beneficial uses for a homeowner, but when water is leaking into your basement, sitting in the crawl space under your living area, or exerting structurally damaging pressure on foundation walls, it quickly becomes a problem. The presence of water in your crawl space or basement also creates conditions ripe for the growth of mold and mildew, which can significantly compromise the indoor air quality of your home, while also impairing the structural integrity of your home. Did you to know that 40% of the air you breath in your home’s first floor comes from your crawl space? more!

What is a P-trap? Charlotte plumber Paul Mesiti tells us.

10 Sep , 2016  


Member Paul Mesiti recently educated the CRESN group about how a P-trap works.

A P-trap is a plumbing fixture that has several purposes. It traps debris that has drained from the sink and prevents it from forming a clog deep within the plumbing system, and to stops sewer gases from passing into the home. It is this back flow prevention that prevents sewer gas from escaping into the house. Sewer gas can contain many noxious odors which at the least, may smell like rotten eggs and at their worst, can be explosive and poisonous. The traps installed in the plumbing lines help to form a barrier of water within the P-trap. At the bottom of the “P” is a small cleanout tap that can be used to remove clogs the P-trap has contained. more!
