Oatey Co., a leading plumbing manufacturer since 1916, recently partnered with nonprofit organization Miracle Mechanical to make one deserving veteran’s hope a reality through significant HVAC and plumbing repairs.

Miracle Mechanical was founded by contractor Brent Ridley with the mission of uplifting families and communities through plumbing and HVAC repairs at no cost to recipients.

“The whole premise of Miracle Mechanical is to help veterans with disabilities, elderly people and those in need,” says Ridley. “Generous sponsors like Oatey give us the means to transform people’s everyday quality of life.”

The recent Oatey-sponsored Miracle Mechanical project provided much-needed help to Cindy Koehler, a U.S. Air Force veteran who has battled multiple sclerosis (MS) and debilitating physical challenges for the past three decades. Koehler lacked clean drinking water for several years due to her home’s failing water filtration system. Rust, germs and other dangerous contaminants polluted the household water supply, making it completely unsafe to consume.

Through Oatey’s sponsorship, Ridley’s team was able to purchase and install brand new appliances, including an electric water heater, two ADA-compliant toilets and a state-the-art water filtration system – ensuring Cindy and her family have access to the best quality water.

“Something as simple as clean running water, being able to flush a toilet and wash dishes brought tears in my eyes and joy to my heart,” says Koehler. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think this would happen.”

“Improving lives is a core tenet of our mission here at Oatey,” explains Katherine Lehtinen, Oatey’s Senior Vice President, Brand & Digital Marketing. “When we heard about Cindy’s story, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to help. We’re honored to be a part of such an impactful project and make such a big difference for the U.S. Air Force veteran.”

RIDGID®, a part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, today announced their sponsorship of the first Miracle Mechanical project, a new initiative that completes plumbing, heating and air conditioning work for those in need at no-cost to the homeowner. The non-profit, headquartered in Georgia, is spearheaded by plumbing and mechanical contractor Brent Ridley.

“I have been doing tool reviews for many years, but I wanted to do more with my platform and really try to help some folks,” said Ridley, who along with working as a contractor is also a tool reviewer and co-host of the Tool Pros podcast.

The Miracle Mechanical team recently completed its first project for homeowner Nick Hendricks and his family in Monroe, Georgia. Hendricks had been seriously injured in a car accident. While he was recovering, the family’s home began experiencing septic system issues.

“The repairs mean everything to us at a time like this,” Hendricks said. “It had come to a point that we were afraid when it rained that the toilet downstairs would overflow due to groundwater getting in the septic and backing up through the toilet! Any time it rained the toilet would bubble and gargle and it was very unsettling.”

The Miracle Mechanical team repaired the septic system issues to prevent sewage from backing up in the house. They also installed three new toilets, repaired kitchen sink piping and installed a new electric water heater.

“At RIDGID we’re committed to not only supporting the trades, but also giving back to the community,” said Becky Brotherton, Senior Marketing Communications Manager, RIDGID for Emerson. “It’s a privilege for our team to be a financial supporter of the work Miracle Mechanical is doing to help others.”

Emerson’s professional tools business, which includes RIDGID as well as the Greenlee® and Klauke® brands, provides the industry’s broadest portfolio of advanced, reliable tools and technologies for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing trades globally.
