Mike Myers, Director of Marketing for Abacus Plumbing said, "Jeff Ehling contacted our CEO, Alan O'Neill, about doing a segment that would show people how to properly wrap their pipes and sprinkler system during hard freezes in Houston."

Mike said, "We were thrilled to be considered for the opportunity, but quickly had to find a willing customer to allow us to come to their home. Luckily, Peyo Rubio (seen in the video) was kind enough to allow us into his home that same day."

"Mr. Jeff Ehling was really great, asked tons of great questions, and made the entire process easy for us," said Mike.

Mr. Myers continued, "Jose Parra, the Plumbing Manager at Abacus, did a terrific job despite the blustery 32 degree weather, explaining to Jeff and all of Houston how pipes should be wrapped and what the dangers of not protecting the pipes could do as well. The experience was great and it was a great success. I hope the information was beneficial to all those who watched it on the evening news. I'd like to thank the local ABC News affiliate and especially Jeff for choosing Abacus Plumbing & Air Conditioning to feature in the spot."
