Another year, more changes
We like to keep things shaken up around here so we have a few changes to the magazine’s lineup of columnists to talk about a little bit.
First of all, IAPMO’s Doug Kirk, the guy who’s been providing “Green Plumbers” columns for the past few years, is going to start splitting time with IAPMO’s Tony Marcello on the monthly Cracking the Code column. Both Doug and Tony are what you’d call experts on the UPC, so we figured two heads filling us in on the subtleties of the Code primarily used in the West can only be a good thing. Doug’s debut with Cracking the Code is here. Make sure to check it out.
Also on the column front, we’re happy to announce that Al Levi has joined our lineup of columnists with his new Contractor Power column. We hear lots of contractors out there are whiz-bang geniuses when it comes to doing plumbing work, but some maybe aren’t so adept when it comes to running – or learning how to run – a contracting business. Al joins the rest of our business columnists, Michael Farias, Ruth King, Tom Grandy and others, this month as a permanent fixture to help you active management types stay sharp and help you aspiring manager types sharpen your skills so the next promotion time you’ll have a decent shot at getting the gold-plated key to the executive washroom.
Finally, joining us as a guest columnist this month is Dennis Falsken, the owner of Falsken Water Systems. We asked if he would share some of his water treatment and filtration knowledge with our readers and he was eager to share what he knows. This month, Dennis gives us the lowdown on Reverse Osmosis systems.
Here’s a chance for a little interaction. We’ve got a month or so until the next issue comes out and we need a name for Falsken’s water treatment and filtration column. How about you all think about it and drop us a line, either via email or on our Facebook page or Twitter.
Finally, I hope you stay around this year. We’ve got quite a few additional changes in store for RJ and you’re sure going to want to hang out and see what they are. Until then…
