The Algona Upper Des Koines, Algona, Iowa, March 18,1997 Easy Access Handy In Plumbing Jobs IB the installation of plumbing •equipment in bathrooms and kitchens, very often plumbing pipes within walls are enclosed without any means of access in case of trouble. Because of this practice when plumbing is being installed in a new dwelling, or when a dwelling already erected is being modernis- ed, the owner should request the plumber to make sure that an access panel is provided so that any trap* and valves concealed within walls may be made accessible. This is particularly Important at the piping end of built-in bath tubs, because 0nly through an access panel either in the wall or in the floor may the trap be reached for cleaning. Experienced Plumber A Home Necessity The services of an experienced plumber are essential in constructing or modernizing a home. The finest pulmbing fixtures cannot give adequate service unless they are correctly installed and unless the supply, waste and vent piping in the walls and under the floor is correctly designed and properly installed. Heavy expense is avoided and the health of the family is protected U plumbing fixtures, valves, pipe and fittings of good quality are installed under the supervision of a plumbing expert.
