Harry Barr began a heating company in 1990, and four years later, it became a plumbing company. Harry Barr Plumbing, located in Wayne, New Jersey, counts on the reliability of its name to maintain a long-standing reputation of quick and efficient service. 

When Barr was working with one of his commercial clients, a car dealership, he avoided shutting the entire building down by using the RIDGID RP 340 press tool. 

“If you have to shut the whole place down, it would have taken forever,” says Barr. “I was able to do it while the water was still running. The job, which would have taken an hour and a half, took less than five minutes. It was an absolute time saver; with this tool, it was quick.

“The greatest asset for us is the ability to do emergency calls quickly. When you get breaks in the winter, you can stop the leak instantaneously. There is no messing around with soldering; it’s a very quick fix. That’s where we find the most use.” 

Explaining why saving time is so important to him and his company, Barr says, “Labor is the biggest cost in any job. It’s not just making the most money on any one job, it’s building a bigger customer base and getting to more jobs, and this tool helps with that.” 800/769-7743;
