Save Your Back While Doing Home Plumbing Repairs

One of the most important rule of any activity is to protect your back and lift properly. As you get older this is more important, especially if you previously hurt your back. Doing home plumbing repairs is an easy way to tweak that back, and lifting a new water heater is a great example of this. There is a product called The One Man Water Heater Lift that cures this problem, here is a review of this great product.

This tool is a great product that should be in the tool box of every plumber. This device is a real back saver, which in my mind is priceless. As all plumbers know, water heater tanks provide no handles or point to grab from. What ends up happening is, people take awkward positions to grab the tank and lift improperly. A new water heater tank weighs more than a hundred pounds and then people strain their back lifting the tank onto a 18 inch platform.

The real genius behind this water heater lift is to provide handles to grab a hold of he new tanks. The water heater lift was invented by career plumber Gary Isaacson Jr. Mr. Isaacson saw the need of plumbers and answered with this great harness. The water heater lift is a strap harness that goes around the back and bottom of a water heater. These straps are joined at a pivot point which has handles,creating a point for the user to grab a hold of. The straps are adjustable, accommodating for different sized tanks and heights of users. This provides for the ideal lifting position for the installer at every lift.

Before I purchased this tool, I was hurting my back at every water heater install. Like many plumbers I have back issues from my work. Got to the point where I would install a water heater and have to go to the chiropractor right after wards. I work in an area where many water heater tanks are installed on a platform, usually 18 inches from the ground. The water heater lift solved my lifting problems and saved my back.

Since using this great product from Gary Isaacson Jr. I have reduced the number of injuries due to lifting water heater tanks. I personally feel that protecting your body, especially the back is one of the most important things to do during home plumbing repairs. The One Man Water Heater Lift solves the problem of protecting your back while installing a water heater. The price for this device is around $100, worth every penny. Highly recommend this back saving device to all plumbers and contractors.
