Any company can be in business employing several good people and never be successful. A professional baseball team can have a few great athletes and still be unable to have a winning record. To become a winning team you need much more than good or great people, you need the right people. The right people don’t always have to be the best or hardest working members of the team but rather the ones who have the desire to do more or give more than others to reach a higher standard of success.

When thinking of the most awkward experiences one might have on the job, I’ll bet that going to a sexual harassment seminar with your father isn’t on most people’s lists. I’m lucky enough to have it on mine. For most teenagers, moving away from home is something they look forward to, to get away from their parents. Maybe I’m just different. There’s a plethora of things I could be doing with my spring break, I chose the one that lets me see my dad at lunch every day.

Do you ever wonder how much of your plumbing knowledge is true? How many of those myths you've heard for years actually work? Here at PRIER, we get asked a lot of crazy and thought-provoking questions each day and it made me wonder if what I “know” is actually true or not.

PRIER has been around a long time – since 1881 – but we can’t take credit for developing the standards by which we measure our products. But it is interesting to learn where these standards originated. Two common units of measure we frequently use are water flow in gallons/minute (GPM) and pressure in pounds/in2 (psi).
