“Finding a good plumber is it can be tricky. The first thing I look for is, how long have they been in business, are they connected to the Better Business Bureau, have they won any awards for service, word of mouth is not — gone, reviews and online reviews have replaced word of mouth. I would check that plumbing company’s reviews.”
The high impact polymer design of Dura G-O-N™ offers the same features as the theft-resistant, nickel-bronze original G-O-N® product line.
RectorSeal® LLC, Houston, a leading manufacturer of quality plumbing and HVAC/R products, introduces Dura G-O-N™ to its Glue-On-Nozzle (G-O-N®) product line of decorative downspouts for commercial building roof drains. Dura G-O-N is a high impact polymer version of the original nickel-bronze G-O-N and offers the same easy, cost-saving installation features. Dura G-O-N and the original G-O-N are the plumbing and building industries’ only decorative downspout nozzles with a theft-resistant glue-on design that can be installed after the wall or building is completed.
Dura G-O-N is USA-made. The integration of its aesthetic patina-like bronze color during the polymer injection molding process makes its simulated oil-rubbed finish indistinguishable from a metal downspout. As a value-engineered, but equally functional alternative to the original metal G-O-N, Dura G-O-N is perfect for retrofits, less visible back-of-building applications or smaller projects with only a few roof drains.
Dura G-O-N is currently available in 4-inch-diameter (10-cm), the building industry’s most popular downspout size, however 3-inch and 6-inch-diameter (7 and 15-cm) models are planned for a first quarter 2018 release.
Dura G-O-N installs within minutes by fastening the three-screw escutcheon plate to the wall and then solvent cement-welding the nozzle’s PVC insert to the outside diameter of the building’s PVC drain pipe. Unlike the decorative downspout industry’s screw-on nozzles, the patented G-O-N glue-on technology is theft-resistant.
Other Dura G-O-N features are:
SureSeal® Stop floor drain odors before they start. Any drain. Anywhere. Every time.
Unfortunately, for the most part, PEX tubing is susceptible to direct UV light. When exposed to direct UV light, you risk the pipe becoming brittle. Keep in mind, different manufactures of PEX may have different ratings based on the length of time it is exposed to UV light. They do, however, put in UV stabilizers in the tubing to give it some limited protection (in days). It is best to inquire with the manufacture to see what their warranty policy is on their PEX tubing if exposed to UV light.
