Our Purpose

Your home should be your castle, even if it’s a one bedroom apartment, or a multi-unit building for your customers.

It should be a place where you or your customers can be comfortable and relaxed with family and friends. An oasis. Where background support and needs are running smoothly without having to think about anything by enjoying the present.

Plumber

Our Purpose is to restore that secure feeling of home as an oasis from the stressors of outside life whenever something that shouldn’t go wrong, inevitably does. By installing the most reliable support systems- or quickly and completely fixing any issues that pop up- with these water, heat, or electrical systems often taken for granted as part of civilized living.

And it’s not just what we do, but how we do it: striving to consistently service our customers in a mindful and friendly manner, so they can return to a relaxing and recuperative environment without having to worry about important things that should run on their own in the first place

Fire Suppression

FDNY Annual Flow Test.  On May 8, 2007 the Fire Department of New York assumed responsibility of the annual sprinkler test from the Department of Housing Preservation. If you have either a converted dwelling or dwellings used for single room occupancy, then you must perform an annual flow test as well as a monthly visual inspection of the sprinkler system. A converted dwelling:  “Any building built before April 18, 1929 as a 1 or 2 family home that was converted to a multiple dwelling (3 units or more) OR any building built after April 18, 1929 originally used as a 1 or 2 family home of up to 3 stories converted to a 3 family house”.

The Test. If your building falls under the above specs, your must have a Flow Test performed and reported (to the FDNY) annually by a Licensed Plumber or Fire Suppression Contractor. This test ensures that if your system should become activated, there will be adequate water pressure to the uppermost section of the sprinkler system to provide fire protection. The minimum water pressure must be 15 PSI at the test station. Once every five years the FDNY must witness this test. The Fire Department will notify you by mail that you must schedule a test.  Please fax (212-534-4349) or email (info@sanitaryplumbing.com) a copy of the notification to us and we will schedule your test with the FDNY.

Preparation:

In order to conduct this test, the building must have an Inspector Test Valve installed on your sprinkler system. This “Station” is a testing port that allows the Fire Department to measure the water pressure in the sprinkler system. It must be located on the upper most floor of the building, in a public hallway, directly after the sprinkler head furthest from the building’s entrance. It is identifiable by pressure gauges, a hose valve and a small white sign stating ‘Inspector’s Test Valve’. You should also have a small bucket (plastic or metal) and a garden hose on the premise.

Monthly Visual Inspections:

The FDNY is also requiring monthly visual inspections of the sprinkler system performed by a competent person holding a Certificate of Fitness. This service is to ensure that on a month-to-month basis, the sprinkler system appears to be in proper working condition and that no alterations to the existing system have been made.

To be proactive and avoid any FDNY violation, call today to schedule a time to begin compliance with these new regulations.

Backflow Preventers (RPZ)

What is an RPZ, why does my building need one?

An RPZ (Backflow Preventers) is a device that prevents the undesirable reversal of flow of water -– caused by the sudden or unexpected change in water pressure — from your building into the City’s potable (drinking) water supply.

Without such a device installed, contaminated water, chemicals or disease could potentially enter the City’s domestic water supply from your building!

What should I do now?

As the letter states, you have thirty (30) days to “initiate the process”. Call Sanitary Plumbing & Heating Corp. We will have our Licensed Engineer draw up a set of approved plans for the installation of the necessary RPZ device(

I have my engineer working on this already…

Upon receiving the plans approved by the NYC DEP from your engineer, Sanitary Plumbing & Heating will provide you with a free estimate to install, test and sign off on your device(s).

What else do I need to know?

If you just completed a new installation, or already have a device previously installed, the City requires annual testing of the RPZ device(s). Sanitary Plumbing is a licensed RPZ testing company.

How it Works

Often a customer will ask us a question when we’re on a job. Such as “how does water filtration work, or how water is pressurized differently for a sink versus a shower”. Or “how does this toilet work (And why is ours always clogging?!)” It often surprises customers when they realize Sanitary Techs’ education goes well beyond “nuts and bolts” into real science and engineering. We love talking shop. So this year we started putting together our own “How Things Work” guides for all our service brands, including Sanitary. If you’ve every been interested in how your plumbing system works, please enjoy the enclosed guide. All we ask is you leave us your name and email address so we can track interest as we continue to expand our “library”. Thank you!
