The easier option for Dave Hogan would have been to stand still in 2016. He had spent 14 years as a plumber, eight of those running his own company, and had built up a solid business.

Hogan is a natural tinkerer, however. He saw there was an issue he could address before people in his line of work were normally called and that set him on the path to start Smart Flow.
