Charlotte plumber Paul Mesiti provides water tips for cold weather

25 Jan , 2013  

Member Paul Mesiti does his thing!

Member Paul Mesiti recently educated the CRESN group about the services that his business 1 Call Plumbing provides, but also used his quick wit and sense of humor to make valves and hoses fun.

Water expands when it freezes. Winter temperatures can freeze the water that is trapped in the outside faucets and pipe connections. If you live in a region where temperatures go below freezing in the winter, then your outside water faucets risk being damaged if they are not drained prior to the winter. In some cases, this can damage the faucet or cause the pipe burst in the wall.  You can prevent water damage to your home by winterizing your outside faucets each fall. Turning off the water supply to your outside faucets is the best way to prevent this problem.

CRESN’s “Show and Tell” is fun for all

16 Nov , 2012  

Member Mike Powers brought his lovely wife Maria and son Evan as his show and tell!

Networking is about trust and familiarity.

That said, in order to establish a tighter bond and understanding of each of our members, we recently asked each member to bring in a personal item to share with the group. The goal of this exercise was to allow each member to share something that had significant meaning in their life.

Members brought in everything from sentimental photos to their families. And most everyone had a wonderful story to share that brought the group closer together.

Who would have known that member Jordan Tabor was a paramedic in his career prior to becoming an excellent handyman? Or Dan Hood’s grandfather was a coal miner in the rolling hills of Kentucky?
