Vestemi, the energy saving technology company, recently announced the launch of its first product, Radbot – a money-saving, easy-to-use, smart radiator thermostat.

The latest figures show the market for underfloor heating grew by 6% in 2017, with a similar increase predicted for the following year. Energy-efficient insulation materials such as XENERGY Styrofoam have helped drive this growth.

Holding back the FatBerg – Drain Clearing Needs To Be Part Of A Broader Maintenance Plan

Drain Clearing Products

January can be a critical time of year for internal and external drain and sewer clearance. Autumn’s leaf fall is now mush, the last Christmas and New Year guests gone, is the inevitable mini FatBerg forming from a ‘system overload’? When were your customers drains last cleared, should you remind them prevention is better than an emergency?

With hair and foreign objects such as soap and the overuse of toilet roll, including other sanitary products escaping, the recipe for a call-out sooner rather than later becomes more likely.
