ILLINOIS CHAPTER

President's Letter
May 2019

Happy Spring,

Hope you had a change to read the article by Conrad Jahrling with the ASSE International on page 6 and 7 of ASSE “Working Pressure” January‐March issue. Conrad Talks about the ASSE 1017 use in the Illinois plumbing code and the proposal of increasing the hot water tempter to 160‐degree Fahrenheit in non‐ residential use. The water temper change is not the only proposed change to the Illinois Plumbing code – a few other notable proposed changes are the elimination the use of all lead and the elimination of galvanize pipe in potable water systems. There are several proposed changes to the State Plumbing Code, when a final version of all changes is available, we will let you know.

In the same issue, please read the 10 questions with Paul Baker on pages 28 and 29. Paul was our past Regional Director, he’s is the Training Coordinator/ Program Director at Plumbers local 98 training center in Detroit. This is a good article that should be read by anyone asking why they should join the Illinois ASSE Chapter.

Good news we have a general membership meeting on later this month at Test Gauge new facility 1051 E Main St #107, East Dundee, IL 60118. I would like to thank Rick Marvel for offering to host our meeting. Please bring a friend and tell a co‐worker. Because it may be a drive for some, we are starting the meeting at 6 pm. (we will send out an email when the date is confirmed).

Please take a minute to read the member spotlight by Randy Olsen, our past President, who has been a great help to me. And also read this month’s sponsor spotlight from our host for the General Membership meeting. Test gauge. 1051 E Main St #107, East Dundee, IL 60118

Fraternally yours,
Denis Riordan
President, ASSE Illinois Chapter
