A Plumber to the Rescue in the Gulf?
I always knew plumbers were called to protect the health of our nation, but to protect our oceans and sea life, too?
Well, it appears that a plumber came up with the idea to help put a stop to the leak in the BP Oil disaster in the Gulf. (Read the story here.)
According to the story, the mystery plumber said “The idea was using the top flange on the blowout preventer as an attachment point and then employing an internal seal against that flange surface. You can kind of see how a plumber thinks this way. That’s how they have to plumb homes for sewage.”
So whether it’s a Fisher’s water heater that’s leaking, an Indianapolis drain clog or an oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, you can always count on a plumber to get the job done!
