WAVES OF LOVE: Florida plumbers build homes, install water filtration systems in Nicaragua

Overheard Online

“By joining a chamber of commerce, you are sending a powerful sign that your plumbing company is putting down roots in the local community. There is an implication that you want to build relationships and aren’t some ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ company. This is especially important to consider if you are starting a plumbing company from scratch, with no brand recognition. People do business with people, and are a lot more likely to take a chance on an unknown plumber if they can look you in the eye. Putting a face to your business goes a long way towards building trust.”

WAVES OF LOVE: Florida plumbers build homes, install water filtration systems in Nicaragua

Members of a Florida plumbing company volunteered to build houses in Nicaragua as part of a four-week mission trip organized by Waves of Love, a Christian faith-based nonprofit dedicated to helping people in need. During its mission, eight members of the Specialized Plumbing Technologies team from Sarasota helped build five brick houses and install individual water filtration systems. “Having the opportunity to give back to a community in need anywhere in the world is a rewarding experience,” says Justin Mizell, executive vice president, Aquam Corporation, and former SPT owner. “It allows us to give back, and it challenges our company to work as a team to provide others with basic life necessities.” plumbermag.com/featured
