General Plumbing Maintenance – Generally Speaking, Go With the Specialists

The idea of the specialist is bandied about a lot in the business world a lot these days but make no mistake, a tree is judged by its fruit. To explain this age old proverb, let’s talk about plumbing because plumbing happens to be one of those areas in which the term ‘specialist’ is misused. Of course, all plumbing services are going to claim to be ‘specialist’ because all plumbing services want to identify themselves with a certain quality of service.

But judge them by their fruits. Do they have a detailed knowledge about the latest product lines? Do they offer the required maintenance to keep those product lines performing at optimum efficiency? Probably more pertinently than anything else, how do those product lines perform on a day to day basis? How often does a ‘specialist’ have to come out to service these products?

What Are General Purpose Blades?

A general purpose blade is a saw blade that is designed to effectively rip and crosscut such that the user is able to continue working without having to change saw blades. Such blades feature a combination of a lower tooth count and larger gullets than crosscut blades, which enables them to rip effectively. In addition, the alternate top bevel (ATB) tooth configuration similarly makes them effective for clean crosscutting. Blades for general uses are great in that they enable you to save a lot of time as you don’t have to switch continually back and forth between rip and crosscut blades. If you are searching for a saw blade that does it all, your search is over.
