High Water Bills? Consider a Water Deduct Meter

by Stephanie Tonnies on 08/13/12

Many customers have remarked that their water bills have been much higher than normal due to the drought.  Some municipalities, including Albers and New Baden, have ordinances allowing the use of water deduct meters.  These meters must be registered with the Village Hall and are used to measure the amount of water being used by outside hydrants.  Water used outside doesn't enter the sewer system, so the municipality will deduct the sewer cost for outside watering from your water/sewer bill.  Sewer costs are much higher than water costs.  The water deduct meters often pay for themselves in the first month at locations with swimming pools, sprinkler systems, and excessive landscape irrigation.  They're easy to install:  they simply connect to your outside hydrant and a garden hose.  Contact your Village or City Hall to see if water deduct meters are permitted; we have the meters in stock.

Want to water your landscaping but worry that you might forget to turn the hose off?  Consider using a water timer.  These timers attach to a hose and automatically shut off when you want.  Simply set the timers for the amount of time you want the water to be on, whether it's 30 minutes or 2 hours.  Stop in today for your timer!

We also have many types of sprinklers, soaker hoses, sprayers, and nozzles for all of your lawn and garden needs.

New Online Catalog!

by Stephanie Tonnies on 04/04/12

At Tonnies Hardware & Rental, we often joke that if we don't have it, you probably don't need it!  Now you can search our warehouse's catalog to see if the item you're looking for is available through our warehouse.  You'll be able to add it to your shopping cart to keep a running list.  Can't find the item you need in our catalog?  Don't worry!  We can almost always find a supplier for an item, even if it's not stocked in our warehouse.  Just let us know what you need, and we'll find it for you.  We order through our warehouse on Tuesdays and receive our orders on Thursdays.

In other news, our April ad starts today and ends April 14.  We hope to have the ad on our website on the "Shop Our Ad" page very soon.  You'll be able to view the ad online and add it to your "Shopping List," which you'll be able to print or e-mail.  This will be a handy feature for Father's Day shopping! 

New in the store this week is Rust-Oleum's LeakSeal, a sprayable flexible rubber coating that seals leaks instantly, creating a water-tight, paintable finish.  It's great for gutters, roofs, flashing, ductwork, PVC, masonry, concrete, and more.

Our rental department continues to be popular with landscaping projects.  Call to rent slit seeders, aerators, dethatchers, bedscapers, and much more!

As a final note, we'd like to wish everyone a Happy Easter!  We'll be open Good Friday from 8-5 as usual.

New Additions to the Tonnies Family!

by Stephanie Tonnies on 03/19/12

There's been a lot of excitement around the store lately! On February 2, we welcomed twins into our hardware family.  Sheryl is now the proud mother of twins Lena and Owen, and Ava is very excited to be the big sister.  Sheryl is staying home with the twins until they get a little older and can start visiting the store like big sister Ava.  "Nana and Papa" are enjoying spending time with their three little angels, and I love holding them...when they're not crying, of course!
 
We've also added some new products at the store.  Stop in to check out the new Zar wood stains, new fluorescent pink spray paints, and an Emergency LED Safety Flare Light by Interstate Batteries.  This flare light is circular (3" diameter, 1.5" deep), offers 16 super bright LEDs that give 360 degree coverage and nine selectable flash patterns.  This handy disc has a built-in magnet to mount on the side of a car, it's durable and shock/vibration resistant, waterproof, it floats, offers visibility up to 10 miles away, has a run-time of up to 100 hours, and is much safer than burning old-fashioned flares that are less-effective in inclement weather.

This is also the time of year for landscaping projects, and we have the equipment that you need!  Call Dave to rent lawn aerators, slit seeders, bedscapers, the leaf vacuum, and much more!  View the Rental page of our website to see a list of the available equipment.  We also sell grass seed, fertilizer, mulch, soil, and sand.
