The Boy and the Dyke

I feel like the boy with a hole in the dyke. Sure, the grass was long near the water tank. And yes, I was a bit close with the brush cutter. But I couldn't have been that close. Could IThe thing is, when you've 4000 litres of water held in a corrugated iron water tank - the only source of water for your pigs, for the cow when she spends the night in the barnyard, for sprouting barley and all those other outdoor, essential chores - you feel mightily dumb when two water spouts appear, within centimetres of the bottom of the tank after meandering past with the brush cutter. To be honest, I wasn't even using a blade. Just a plastic bit called a 'weed whacker' that does brilliantly at keeping the bracken and thistles down but not something I thought would carve through metal.All I know now is that I'm in danger of losing all the water in the tank. I press my finger to the largest hole. And it gets bigger. I try to dry the outside of the tank so I can put some gaffer tape over the hole (please, those who understand these things, don't laugh), and another hole appears further along. The reason I've got the problem, a three-hole problem now, is that this tank is rusted through. Because some of the grass is cut from around the base I can see the telltale orange spots. If I look closely, I can see water seeping from some of them. If I hadn't hit the thing with a weed whacker, a mere bump or brush or any external pressure would cause the thing to leak.Which doesn't make it any better. A new tank will be nearly two months in coming. It has to be made to size, to fit under the barn roof. In the meantime, I'll have to extend the water pipe from the pump on the dam across the creek, or continue as I have been, lugging about 120 litres a day.The water tank isn't the only thing that's leaking. So is the septic. And this, in some ways, particularly olfactory ways, is much worse. Luckily it doesn't take long for Mal's Pumping service to arrive, with an attitude not that different to Kenny's in the movie. Even the truck they bring is rather humorous. On the side it says 'yesterday's meals on wheels" and 'your business is our business". The number plate pokes fun at the gruesome task they have to undertake at every single call out: POO 003. Pumping out a septic tank is something that has to be done on occasion. Too much lamb fat down the drain, or too many 'solids", and the quicker it needs to be done, though once every five years is usual. I've become extraordinarily conscious of what I put down the drain since everything ends up in my paddocks. I've always been careful with chemicals and oil (they say 1 litre of oil can pollute 100 000 litres of water) and avoided putting them down the sink even in the city. But here, where all your drinking water flows from your gutters, and all your liquid waste ends up a few metres from the house, you gain a far higher appreciation. Mal tells me to close all the windows and stay inside while they give the tray that leads to the septic a stir and then pump out the tank. You don't have to tell me something like that twice.

Water Tank Buying Guide: Price, Types, Vastu Placement & Maintenance Tips
In this article, we give you all the information on selecting a water tank and how to place it, according to Vastu ShastraSafe drinking water is a basic need and continuous water supply is needed for day-to-day activities. Often, municipalities do not supply adequate water throughout the day. So, home owners prefer to invest in a water tank for their house, to get water supply at all times.A water storage tank collects water and stores it for later use and access. Residential water tanks and overhead water tanks have become important, as they are convenient for people to access the water supply 24×7. Water tanks are also used as catchment tanks for rainwater.In India, water tanks are made from plastic, concrete, metal, fiberglass, steel and other materials. Nowadays, the plastic polyethylene (poly) water tank is the most popular for water storage, as it is lightweight, non-corrosive and leak-proof. If by any chance the plastic tank does have slight damage, it can easily be secured with a sealant. The water tanks can last up to 10 years or more, depending on the material used to manufacture them.Plastic water tanks in India come in various capacities and types - underground or overhead type. Plastic water tanks are available in various sizes such as 500-litre, 1,000-litre, 5,000-litre and it can even go above 1,00,000 liters. They usually come in cylindrical, square and rectangular shapes.Some of the water tank brands in India are Sintex water tank, RC Plasto, Storewel, Aquatech, Supreme, Penguin, Vectus, Sheetal, Jindal, Sarita, Kaveri, Lotus, Easy tanks, Neropure, Selzer and others.The water tank depends on the storage capacity, layers of the plastic used, brand, state, dealer, etc.Elevated water storage tanks are fitted underground and are ideal for storing water from rainwater harvesting and municipal water. The size of the underground water tank is usually larger than the overhead tank.See also: A guide to water conservation methodsOverhead tanks are placed over the rooftop of any house or apartment. These are popular due to its cost-effectiveness and easy installation. Water storage tanks above ground can be easily checked for leakage through visual inspection and are usually easier to access if repairs are required. With overhead tanks, one can have to access the water even without electricity. Once the tank is filled, the gravitational force maintains the necessary water pressure through the water system.Placement of water tank according to VastuWater is one of the five elements mentioned in Vastu Shastra, which plays an important role and if its placement is not correct in the house, then, it can create problems for the occupants. Vastu Shastra has specific directions mentioned for placing the water tanks.The ideal direction for the overhead water tank is in the south-west or the west corner of the house. If those areas are not feasible, then, place the tank in the south or the north-west direction. Ensure that the tank placed in the north-west is of a small size.According to Vastu, the overhead water tank must never be kept in the north-east corner. Placing the tank in the south-east corner or the center is also not advisable, as it can result in financial loss and cause accidents.An overhead tank should not have any leakage towards the left. In case there is any leakage, it is considered inauspicious as it can cause financial loss.Underground water tanks can be either towards the north or east. If the position of the tank is towards the north-east direction of the plot, it results in happiness, wealth and prosperity.Underground water tanks should not be placed in the south direction, as it may causes mental stress and illness. The south-east direction of the house is for the fire element and there should be no water tank in that area. Similarly, the north-west and south-west directions are not recommended for underground water.Avoid a water tank above the kitchen or bedroom. There should be different tanks for different purposes. As per Vastu, avoid digging an underground water tank on Tuesday.For a small family, a 500 to 600-litre water storage tank is enough and for a big family (depending on the size of the family) opt for a 700 to 1,000-litre tank. One also gets small tanks that have a capacity of between 100 and 300 litres.Water storage tanks come in different shapes. Vertical water tanks are better for groundwater storage purposes, while horizontal tanks are ideal for underground storage purposes. For household purposes, a vertical tank would be ideal, as rectangular and square tanks can fit in the corners and make best use of space. For large areas, cylindrical tanks are the best.Storage tanks are available in various colours such as black, white, green beige, etc. Black and green tanks are preferred, as they prevent ultraviolet rays and the growth of harmful bacteria.Always choose the high-quality low linear density polyethylene (LLDPE) material and food-grade plastic material. These are safe to use and are durable.Plastic water storage tanks are available with many layers. These multiple layers protect the tanks from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. The extra layers include the black middle layer and food-grade layers that make it safe for drinking water usage. So, opt for triple-layer tanks.Always select a well-known brand and one that has a warranty.See also: A quick guide on using water metersTips for maintenance and cleaning of plastic water tank• Ensure that the storage water tank is properly closed, to avoid any impurities or waste from entering. Regularly check for leakage of pipes and get them repaired immediately.• The purity of the water is also impacted by where it is stored. Whether it is a home building or a housing complex, the water tank should be cleaned and disinfected at least twice a year to avoid water contamination and to maintain health and hygiene.• To clean the tank fully, drain the stored water. Try to use it for some chores, rather than just wasting it.• Scrub the tank, to remove dirt and sediments. One can either use chlorine or liquid detergents to get rid of deposits and germs. After cleaning the tank, always ensure that the tap is left running for some time, to wash away the dirty water.• If one is unable to clean the tank oneself, it is better to hire professionals who will do high-pressure cleaning, such as vacuum cleaning, anti-bacterial spray, etc. and ensure it is thoroughly clean.I need information about Cold Salt Water Tanks and fish?Cold water salt water tanks can be hard to come by. There are very few fish on the market that are cold water. The only one I could fine was a Catalina Goby. They are marketed as warm water, but the live best at room temp. If you want any other cold water salt water fish, you might have to collect your own. If you want to go for Catalina goblies, a 30 gallon tank should be find. You can go smaller, but this is not recommend for beginner. I would do research on salt water tanks first. However, I do not think you will need a protein skimmer, just a good filter and some decor. Also, live rock and sand might not work because of the cold water( on second though, live sand should. Hope this helps!!
How Do You Clean a Zen Breeze Diffuser?
Also question is, how do you clean a diffuser with rubbing alcohol?If your diffuser seems to have a lot of essential oil buildup, fill it with rubbing alcohol or white vinegar as high as the water line and let it soak overnight. Then, empty it, rinse it, and dry it with a soft cloth. Soak the plastic diffuser top directly in rubbing alcohol, as needed, to remove buildup.Also, how do you descale an essential oil diffuser? How to Deep-Clean an Ultrasonic Diffuser (for Aroma Lite, Lotus, Lumo, or Petal diffusers)• Fill the water reservoir halfway to the line with clean water.• Add 10 drops of pure white vinegar to the water reservoir.• Turn it on and let run for 3-5 minutes, allowing the vinegar to disperse throughout.Secondly, how do you clean aroma breeze diffuser?To clean inside water tank, dispense a few drops of rubbing alcohol into tank and wipe with a clean, soft cloth. To clean ceramic disc at bottom of water tank, dispense a few drops of rubbing alcohol onto a clean cotton swab and wipe clean.How many drops do you put in an oil diffuser?Diffusers do come in different sizes, but these are usually in 100ml increments, and therefore calculating the number of drops of essential oil to add is relatively easy. The smallest, 100ml diffusers will take 3-5 drops on average, while the largest, 500ml diffusers will require 15-20 drops.What are the best baby humidifiers?Colds and allergies they are all to common in children and humidifiers can help. If you found this guide you are no doubt in need of a good humidifier for use in your little ones room. You might already know that a cool mist humidifier is safer than warm mist but kills less germs. You may know about what a humidifier does and what symptoms it alleviates. If you are a savvy shopper you will also know what features you want! Well, if not we've got pretty much everything you need to know somewhere in here. For the fully informed among you here's our thoroughly researched humidifier 'top picks'.... What does a humidifier do and how does it help? Humidity is simply a measure of water vapor in the air. Checkout this Wikipedia page if you want more on that. A humidifier adds more water vapor into the air. What does that do? Well.... Adding moisture to the air can help relieve congestion from the common cold, flu, and sinus infections. Humidifiers can also help alleviate the symptoms of eczema, itchy skin, cracked lips, nose bleeds, and dry eyes. Any of which can be caused by dry air, allergies, or asthma. The ideal humidity level inside your house is anywhere from 30 to 50 percent. This level helps you and your skin to stay healthy. There's no single level in that range that's optimum. That's because humidity levels will naturally change due to the seasons. Using your heating or air conditioning will reduce the humidity level. Taking a steamy shower will raise it. Too much humidity causes the air to feel stuffy and may cause condensation to develop on your walls and windows. Continual high humidity allows bacteria and mold to grow. This can be bad. Low humidity levels can make your skin dry, itchy and irritate your eyes and throat. Do you really need a humidifier for a baby? You do not really need a humidifier to start with. If your child has a stuffy nose or any other symptoms, and they are old enough, give them a long bath or shower. Or if they are too young put them in the room with you whilst you take a lovely long relaxing soak or shower. That's the first step. Did it help them? If the answer was yes, then you will probably find getting a humidifier for their room a good idea. Is a cool mist or warm mist better? Here are the facts. A cool mist humidifier has no heating element, the water inside is cool and the vapor emitted is cool. There's no chance it could ever burn your child. Warm mist humidifiers heat the water to produce vapor. They naturally emit less mold and bacteria into the air because heating water kills it. The actual air in the room that your child breathes will be the same temperature from either. Our warm mist humidifier sits there bubbling away all night. Some of the water inside is at (or near) boiling point. I would not want that water spilling on my child. I would not want it on a high shelf with a trailing wire a child could pull on either. I would also never leave it in a room with a child who's too young to understand what is inside is hot and could burn. Warm mist humidifiers contain a heating element. Usually, they are like a really small kettle. I am happy to run ours overnight it has a shut-off to sense when the water tank is empty. You may not feel the same way. Whilst there seems to be a bit of a craze for cool mist, there's still a case for warm. Boiling water purifies it, so warm mist humidifiers emit less bad particles. You do not have to purchase replacement components like filters either. You can use tap water in them and they require less frequent cleaning. You will use more electricity running one. But unless you use it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for a long time you are not really going to notice the change to your electricity bill. If you have a baby who can not yet get around or a child who's past the inquisitive/destructive stage you can save yourself some work. We purchased a warm mist humidifier to put next to our crib when our newborn girl had a stuffy nose. We did however opt for a cool-mist to use with our toddler (he was 3 at the time), and placed it on his bedside table. He was told what it was, what it did, not to mess with it and he never did. Can I use an essential oil diffuser around by baby? There are a few oils you may want to stay away from and in general, it's recommended that you dilute essential oils for younger children and babies. It's also recommended that you are cautious with the following oils because children have more sensitive airways than adults: Can you get sick from a humidifier? Yes. If you do not keep it clean, and you do not use clean water a humidifier can actually emit bacteria and mold into the air. Use a humidifier too much and the humidity levels in your room can stay elevated. You will get condensation and moisture everywhere. That environment is a breeding ground for bacteria and molds. Ideally, you should monitor the humidity level in a room. You would use something called a hygrometer for this. Do not let humidity stay too high for too long. Overnight use is fine, your room should get chance to dry out in the day. How close should humidifier be to your baby? This depends on your humidifier! It really comes down to exercising a little common sense. If it's a small unit that is not producing a lot of vapor you will be fine with it placed near to a child. But still keep it out of reach of a child that does not understand what it is. Use a wide area humidifier that produces a lot of vapor near a sleeping child and you might literally soak them and their bedsheets. Gauge it yourself. There's no need to be able to see mist falling onto the skin. Humidity will work even when you can not see it. What type of water should you use in a humidifier? Tap water is not the best choice in a cool mist thermometer. If you have some, distilled or demineralized water is better. It's recommended by this EPA factsheet . That's because it has less mineral content than tap water. Fewer minerals in the water, fewer minerals in the air the humidifier produces. Less in your lungs. Using tap water in an area of high mineral content might result in you seeing a fine white dust everywhere. Which cool mist humidifier is best for baby? We've actually got a separate article on this that just covers the best cool mist humidifiers. Take a look in there if you want the top pick and only want to consider cool mist. If you blow on something that's wet you will dry it out. These use the same principle. There's a wick and a fan inside. The wick soaks up liquid and the fan blows air over it to help it evaporate into the air. Wicks eventually need replacing. It's harder to evaporate water into the air in an already humid room. An evaporative humidifier will self-regulate and become less effective as the humidity in a room increases. These have an electric motor that drives a rapidly spinning disc. The disc throws water at high speed onto comb-shaped part called a diffuser. This breaks the water into microscopic droplets that are emitted into the air. A vibrating disc submersed inside a water container produces ultrasonic waves. Think of an underwater speaker. As the tiny waves break the surface they emit water particles into the air. That's the basics. If you really want to get technical check this out. Boiling water naturally evaporates into the air as steam. That's the principle a warm-mist humidifier works on. They simply boil the water slowly, small amounts at a time, and physics does the rest. What features to look for.... Warm air humidifiers do not need filters or lights to remove bacteria and minerals from the water. It's done naturally through the process of boiling it. Cool mist humidifiers will sometimes have one of the above to help to remove unwanted particles from the vapor they emit. Be aware that filters will require cleaning and/or replacement after some use. UV lights can be used to kill 99.9% of harmful bacteria inside water before dispersing into the air. Bigger is not always better. A bigger reservoir will generally give you a longer run time between refills. It does depend really on the particular humidifier and the rate it emits the water as vapor. Instead, if it's specified look at the run-time in the specifications. Whole house, large, medium and small room. You will see all these listed in humidifier specs. If you are looking for a baby, you are probably going to want it for the nursery. So look at small/medium room units. How loud is it? Pretty disappointing when you get the new solution to what is bothering your little one and it ends up keeping them awake all night. Unless your child could sleep through anything, check owner review and product listings. Look for a humidifier that's quiet! When the reservoir is empty, you want your humidifier to stop. There's nothing left to disperse so no need to continue running, making noise and wearing out the components. This is especially the case on a warm mist humidifier. You do not want the element heating nothing all night. Good humidifiers will include an auto-off sensor and shut down when there's nothing left in the water tank (or the tank is knocked over). We've already mentioned that an evaporative cool mist humidifier will self-regulate. The more humid the room the less effective it will be. Other types will continue to disperse vapor until you stop them unless they come with a humidity level sensor. That's called a hygrometer. These types will also normally cost you a little more but also allow you to specify and control the desired level of humidity in a room. Great for children. Safe and easy to implement for the manufacturer nowadays. Color changing LED nightlights are common on baby humidifiers. They are usually on all night anyway, why not add a soft color changing glow to the room at the same time? Making a humidifier act as a light is also a useful indicator to children and to you that something is switched ON! Babymoov is a global brand that makes a whole lot of baby products driven by the needs of parents. Their humidifier is a nice looking unit that has all the features you would want it to have. You pay a slight premium for that over some more budget options. But if you are going to be using it a lot, or you just want a good product, then it's worth it. There's a backlit touchscreen on the front which displays the current room humidity level. You do not have to worry about the lights from that screen keeping your little one awake as they dim when it's not in use. The front panel also shows you the room temperature. You can set your desired humidity level as this has a humidity sensor at the back of the base. It will work to keep your room at your desired level until the water tank runs dry. The 0.7 gallons (2.5 L) water tank should give you 22 hours of runtime before you need to refill. There's also a diffuser that you can put essential oils or other inhalants into. Great if you want to add something more to the air to help alleviate symptoms or make a room smell a certain way. As well as setting the humidity level and leaving it to work automatically you can also just set this manually to run constantly at one of 5 output levels from 110 ml/hour up to 250 ml/hour. You can also program it to stop running after a few hours with the timer mode. Whisper quiet, this runs at 25 dB (which is actually whisper quiet). The vapor nozzle spins a full 360 and directs vapor out at 45 degrees so you can really direct it exactly where you need to. Finally, it's also a 7 color night light. Due to the funky slightly alien looking egg shape, this really can be a stylish addition to any room, not just a nursery. The night light can be switched on or off and when working can cycle through 7 colors to or just stick to one. Auto shut-off when the water tank is empty No filter, not antibacterial, needs filtered water If you can not decide between warm or cool mist, why not get a humidifier that does both? This Levoit unit allows you to select cool mist OR warm mist via the touch panel on the front or the remote control. It has a large capacity 6-liter tank and will run for up to 36 hours between refills and will cover up to 280 sq ft. The mist is expelled through two nozzles on the top and you can rotate both of them independently so that the mist is directed exactly where you need it to be. The ultrasonic air diffuser produces less than 36 dB. A whisper is about 30 dB and the sound of a humming refrigerator is about 40 dB, so whilst this is not silent, it does run quietly. If you or your baby is a light sleeper it's also possible to even turn off the blue lights on the control panel so the unit is completely dark. You do not need a filter in this one. If you want clean bacteria-free mist, you use the warm mist option.
Is 'water Tank with Inlet & Outlet Valves Closed' a Open System, Close System Or Isolated System? Th
Based on your definitions and assuming the tank is closed on the top then the system would be a "closed" system. For it to be an isolated system it would also have to exist in a perfect vacuum with the boundary of the vacuum at the same temperature as the tank. That way there could be no energy transfer by radiation, conduction or convection. As to why this matters I can only guess the question is designed to determine if you understand this aspect of thermodynamics.1. Hot Water Heater leaks through drainage spigot after flushingThose plastic shut off valves on water heater tanks are obviously very cheap and probably low quality as well. There are likely two main reasons that the valve leaks (maybe three). Mitigation information:2. what are the measurements (inches/centimeters) of a trumpet bell and valves?Which trumpet? The reason I ask is because different manufacturers use different dimensions and there is even variations between a manufacturer's models3. Hot water is not hot enough after the water main was replaced. Why?You call the same plumber and tell him that supposed to be so is not good enough. He needs to be sure it IS so. Whenever you mess with the plumbing it knocks loose all kinds of stuff that was in the pipes and is now somewhere else. the crap can be building up and clogging your faucet filters, valves, and shower head. He should have flushed the lines at yours or anybody elses places after chnaging out the pipe(s). What about your bath tub? does it have better water flow and stya hot longer?4. How Can My Valves Operate So Productively Regardless Of A Very High RPM? Pic?The design has alot of do with it. People dont understand that in alot of thing that you buy, the good ones will usually be more expensive. Not because of the name on it, but because quality control and research/design that keeps up on improvements. The hardest thing is adusting the valves on an RX7 rotary engine.5. where are the check valves for the air suspension on a 2000 crown vic?If it's factory air ride they have their own built in air compressor. That's how the suspension can compensate for increased loads, the compressor builds up the air pressure, so no need to add it if you could. If it's down on all four wheels, first check the trunk, they have a switch in there that turns off the air suspension. Not sure on yours, but the earlier Lincolns and Mercs you had to turn off the air suspension before raising the vehicle on a lift. If you did not the bags would extend and pop and you had an instant low rider. Hopefully for you someone just bumped the switch with a bag of groceries and flipped it off. Normally if there is a fault in the air ride it will set off a lamp on the dash. So it seems like that may be your problem. If it's not, check for a blown fuse, but that should set a level ride light on the dash. If it's none of those, plan on a not pretty bill to fix it.6. On an old New York apartment radiator, with two valves, what do I do to only have a little heat?steam comes in through larger pipe at bottom of radiator."leave this valve opened all the way,closing even alittle will cool down steam and turn into water. use only top valve regulatortotadjust temp. the banging you hear is the hot steam hitting the colder water left in radiator,that's why you leave bottom valve opened always,stay warm7. What are water line measurements?Water line measurements can be applied to construction projects involving water main installation. Linear feet of pipe, number and size of shut off valves, pressure reducing valves and fire hydrant valves are all things that need to be measured and accounted for. Granular backfill is usually applied to half way up the pipe and plastic wrapped pipe is common in acidic soil conditions. The bury depth will determine the amount of compacted fill required and to finish the job the trench needs to be seeded and/or sodded.What are water line measurements?
Clean Drinking Water on Board - Part 1, Watermakers for Boats
How do watermakers work?Watermakers use Reverse Osmosis to make water. This is the opposite process of osmosis that plants use. Wiki definition of Reverse Osmosis and description; Reverse osmosis (RO) is a separation process that uses pressure to force a solvent through a membrane that retains the solute on one side and allows the pure solvent to pass to the other side. The membrane is designed to allow only water to pass through this dense layer while preventing the passage of solutes (such as salt ions). This process requires that a high pressure be exerted on the high concentration side of the membrane, usually 2 to17 bar 30 to 250 psi, for fresh and brackish water, and 40 to 70 bar 600 to 1000 psi, for seawater, which has around 24 bar 350 psi, natural osmotic pressure which must be overcome.Types of watermaker Modular, Self Contained or Portable units are made for use on boats. For very small boats or even kayaks portable units are the way to go. For most boats however modular systems are best. Modular systems can be mounted in individual parts and do not require one large space, but several much smaller spaces. Most manufactures produce self contained units that house all the parts of the watermaker between the through hull and the water tanks. These setups are easily controlled but require a large amount of space.Components of a typical modular system A typical installation involves a seawater supply, preliminary filtration to remove weeds and large contaminants, a low pressure pump to push the water through the particle filter which remove particles down to 5 microns, a high pressure pump to supply the RO membrane. Fresh water from the membrane is then sent to the water tank. For every gallon of fresh water produced roughly 10 gallons is required to pass through the membrane, the remainder goes overboard in the form of brine. Hose runs should be minimal especially in low energy systems.Power to the pumps, can be supplied by battery, generator or engine driven pumps. Large capacity watermakers generally need an AC power source. Smaller capacity and low energy watermakers can use DC AC or engine driven pumps.How much water are you going to need, what size watermaker do you need? Calculate how much water you need by estimating your daily usage/person/day. Older estimates allowed for a minimum of 1/2 to 1 gallon/person/day. This rate does not include showers, dishes and other extras. Nowadays with modern conveniences its more like 2 1/2 to 3 galls/person/day. Work out how much you want to run the watermaker. You don't want to run it all day, but you may want to run it while the generator is on, while the engine is on and your charging your batteries. So maybe 2-3 hour per day run time is reasonable. Tank size is also an issue. Its no good making 400 gallons if the tanks are not big enough. Normally watermakers give their estimated outputs based on 70 degree F. Colder water temps may produce less water.Maintenance The membrane needs to be flushed regularly to remove the particles and salt that have been built up on the supply side of the membrane during the RO process.Conclusion You now have fresh water, what no, what do you mean no. Water from the membrane goes into the water tank however there maybe contaminants in the tanks and pipes. Read part 2 of the making fresh water series to find out how to keep water fresh in the water tank and water lines before use.
What Else Do I Need to Start Salt Water Tank?
Salt. Preferably aquarium salt1. Putting Fish in Water Tank?Fish do not help!!! They would make it worse and i dont know how your horses will feel about that it could make them uncomfortable but algae, and bugs, and alot of other things that are disgusting will get in it if they havnt already b/c There are always dead birds in them!!!2. What would happen if I turn off my goldfish's water tank light?Gold fish will not have a problem sleeping in the dark. I myself have never had a light on my goldfish tanks. Goldfish Secrects is a great book to read on goldfish.3. What would cause water to stop running in house even though there is water in water tank?There might be a blockage in the pipeline4. My gas hot water tank keeps turning off, and there is no hot water coming out of our taps.?If you mean the copper cylinder that is heated by the gas boiler, it needs time to heat the water after you have used it all up, takes about 20-30 minutes5. How do you reset a rheem electric hot water tank?Is the water heater gas or electric? If is is plugged in to electricity check and see if there is current getting to the plug. If there is no electric connection then your problem is unrelated. Did you reset the breaker after it was tripped. If these solutions dont work you will need to call a plumber6. Immersion Hot Water Tank keeps tripping Electrics?In addition to previous answers, if there is no Immersion Heater 'boss' with a 2 and 1/4 inch thread then one can be fitted. It is called an "Essex" flange and is available from all good plumbers' merchants. You will then need to buy an immersion heater of a suitable length to screw into the "Essex" flange. You will need a suitable 15 amp fused spur adjacent to the immersion heater that should be installed by a qualified electrician. Otherwise the suggestion of a single electric heater installed in the hot water system may be more economic but it depends upon the level of use, position of basins, baths and sinks etc7. How can I make my HOT WATER TANK vent properly?The heater that you have is made to be vented thru the roof to a point at least 2 feet above the highest point of the roof within 10 feet on the vent. If you cannot vent it out the roof, either on its own or tied into an approved vent of another heater such as a furnace, then you are going to have to have a water heater that uses a power vent that can exit thru a wall. You realize the dangers of the present condition, so this needs your utmost attention to correct the condition.8. how long should i change water for a tank with an arowana?This really depends on what is in your tank. If you just have the arowana you could go longer than if you had other fish in their as well. This also really depends on the size of your tank in that larger tanks need to have water changes done less often. This also depends how you feed your arowana. Mine eats mice, rats, lizards, fish, flakes & pellets. If yours is only eating pellets than you would be able to get away with changing it less than if you are putting hundreds of feeder fish in your tank every week like I am. Regardless though, it never hurts to do a 40% water change for your fish every two weeks. I do exactly that on my tanks and recommend that you do the same, and eventually you will have a big and beautiful arowana that will one day jump out of your tank to catch mice upon being trained to do so like mine does.9. Price and equipment for a ten gallon salt water tank?alot start with fresh water and then see what happens if anything you have 2 tanks and you got to remeber salt water fish cost $20 and up good luck10. How do I make a Liquid-level-indicator for an overhead sintex water tankThe float and counterweight are in the tank attached to pulleys. the indicator is attached to the counterweight as well and helps to balance the weights. From the diagram you can complete the project. Some water must be added to the float so as to balance the weight of the counterweight. This is trial and error until you get it right
Pet Owners Complain As Dog Park Remains Dry
Pet owners are accusing a Toronto councillor of backtracking on a commitment to bring water to what they call a "dustbowl" of a dog park in North York.In late June, Councillor James Pasternak said he hoped to bring a water source to the off-leash area in Earl Bales park by the end of July - even if that meant a temporary solution, such a portable tank.But nothing has been done.Dog owner Paul Sobel blasted Pasternak, saying he has been complaining to the councillor about the lack of water for five years."He's never kept his word to me in five years," insisted Sobel. "He's never come up with a solution or met me at the park - even when he said he would." Sobel, who continues to bring a container of water for his dog when they're in the park, has long wanted a fountain established at the dog run, which also has very little shade.Both Pasternak and parks officials said such a project would be too expensive - $30,000-$35,000 - and would require piping to be installed over a distance.Pasternak in June suggested a portable water tank could be used as a remedy while he and city officials worked on a long-term solution.Turns out, that's a no-go."We did talk about the portable water (tank), but it was concluded that the water would not remain ... cold, or cool, or healthy," said Pasternak. "When it was recognized that the equipment wasn't there, and that it wasn't a healthy solution, it wasn't pursued with vigour ... We need a long-term solution." He said city officials will continue to look at tapping into piping that supplies water to the park's amphitheatre washroom.Pasternak added that he spoke with a park supervisor about alternative solutions and funding sources - a combination of public money and private sponsorship, for example."I've asked ... our parks supervisor to find us some real numbers and a real engineering approach. That should be done by late summer, early fall. As long as we can find a funding source, and it's a reasonable cost, we can make it a 2017 capital project. That's the goal."
Is It Possible to Store Energy for Creating Electricity Like a Ups in an Elevated Water Tank?
Yes, you can, and that is used in many places to store electrical energy for later use. although all the uses I am aware of are large scale, there may well be numerous small scale examples. As to actual design, you are better off hiring a good engineer to determine the proper hardware to use. Items like generator design and pump design have all been done before, use existing hardware wherever possible. Get a good engineer to give you a quote and compare that to the cost of a battery system.1. Pilot light won't stay lit on my house hot water tank?you might need a new one because it could be a cheep one and cheep one break easy2. I need to show a complete solution to this problem: A water tank has an inlet pipe and a drain pipe.?In 30 Min's outlet would of emptied tank but the inlet would need another 15 Min's to fill the tank so every 30 Min's the tank empties leaving the inlet needing an extra 15 minutes to fill 30Min's past, it will take 15 Min's to fill 1h past, it will take 30 Min's to fill 1hr 30Min's, it will take 45 Min's to fill so it's empty cause that's how long it takes inlet to fill i got no idea how that works mathamatically >3. i have a whirlpool hot water tank and i don't have hot water. but i just got the electric on so please help cause i don't know what to do.?If there are 2 elements than you can try replacing them. Prior to that check the line and breaker to make sure the unit is getting electricity. If the line and breaker are good and you have replaced the elements and made sure the unit is wired correctly. . Sorry chum. .. Time for a new water heater : ( good luck!4. After I add salt mix to my salt water tank what do I do next?First of all, let it cycle for another 5 weeks depending on the size of the tank. Then you just have to add the fish. Let the fish sit on top of the water for no less than 15 minutes to let the water temperature accumulate. Then pour the water through a net into a bucket then let the fish into the tank.5. why is my water tank not feeding my pressure washer?water tanks do not "feed" anything,,, the pu,[ in the pressure washer is suppose to suck the water into the valves,, does this give yo a hint??6. Can I change my fish water tank daily if I am too lazy to buy a filter?Actually, bettas as a species are very resilient in terms of water quality. Their native territory is small ponds, puddles, drains and slow moving water. Generally they are kept in a small bowl without filtration and the water is changed maybe once every week or so. As long as you do not overfeed it sounds like you are doing the right stuff for betta care, no filter needed!7. Can i use a filter that was in a satlwater tank in a fresh water tank?it's absolutely fine . .. a few tiny drops of salt wo not do F&^k all to your fish .. they might not even notice it8. getting read of green in a salt water tank??????????????How old is your tank? Hair algae outbreaks are pretty normal in a young system. Also, are you using a protein skimmer? They will help remove the nutrients that fuel micro-algae. Ensure that your light bulbs are not too old, and that you are not over-feeding, as these will also contribute to nuisance algae. I am concerned about your green crabs (Emerald Mithrax?) dieing so fast, as they are generally very hardy. This may be an indication that some of your water parameters are out of whack. You may try some small hermit crabs and Astraea snails in your aquarium. They will help remove what is already in the tank, but you really need to address the source of the problem. Regards
Trenton Water Works Says Potentially Toxic Water Contaminants Have Been Found at Hamilton Company
TRENTON - Excessive levels of potentially toxic water contaminants have been detected at a Hamilton company that is a Trenton Water Works customer, but the incident did not constitute an emergency and customers do not have to boil their water, the city said.In a letter sent to customers last week, Trenton's public works department said that in the second half of 2012, levels of total trihalomethanes or TTHM exceeded allowed levels and the state Department of Environmental Protection notified the city of a drinking water violation.The notice dated April 11 said the city was required to notify water customers of steps being taken to correct the problem."This is not an emergency. If it had been an emergency, you would have been notified within 24 hours," the letter said. "There is nothing you need to do. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions."The DEP had sent a notification to Trenton Water Works on March 14, saying the city-owned utility failed to report the high levels of contaminant to the Bureau of Safe Drinking Water within 48 hours of becoming aware of the violation.Public works director Luis Mollinedo did not return a message seeking comment. People with severely compromised immune systems, who have an infant, are pregnant or are elderly may be at increased risk and should contact their health care provider for more information, the letter said.Trihalomethanes are four volatile organic chemicals that form when disinfectants used to treat the water react with natural organic matter, according to the DEP. One type of trihalomethane is produced during the manufacturing of refrigerants."It's a by-product of chlorination and it does occur in drinking water systems from time to time," DEP spokesman Lawrence Hajna said. "It does not pose a short-term health threat."Some people who drink water containing high levels of TTHM over the course of many years may have liver, kidney or central nervous system problems or an increased risk of cancer, according to the DEP.Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede said she was disappointed she was not notified by Trenton officials directly about the violation."I implore Trenton Water to resolve this issue and to contact me directly whenever an issue such as this arises," Yaede said.She said the incident shows again why the state should take over operation of the water utility "to help restore safety and confidence in the system."In 2010 then-Mayor John Bencivengo asked for a state takeover after an unexpected filtration plant shutdown and drop in water pressure, a report of high bacteria levels in a water tank and the arrests of some utility employees, among other issues.Quarterly water tests at Capital Refrigeration in Hamilton showed increased levels of TTHM between May 2012 and February 2013, the letter said.The levels of the chemicals averaged 95 parts per billion, exceeding the 80 parts per billion standard, the notice said. In early 2013 they were at an acceptable 69 parts per billion. The tests in the final three quarters of 2012 found levels above 100 parts per billion, the DEP said in the notification sent to Trenton Water Works.The DEP directed the city to perform a number of corrective actions, including notifying the public within 30 days, and to submit a report of the actions that have been or will be taken.Trenton Water Works hired a consulting engineer to review steps to reduce the levels of TTHM and is evaluating its options, the letter to customers said.
Goenka College Hosts Control Room to Manage Displaced Locals | Kolkata News - Times of India
KOLKATA: A college in central Kolkata has turned into a war room to serve as the nerve centre for rescue, rehabilitation and reclamation for hundreds who have been displaced after the subsidence caused buildings to cave-in in Bowbazar. Goenka College of Commerce and Business Administration, considered one of the finest colleges in the city for commerce, became the hub of all activities on Wednesday. Kolkata Police has set up a control room to co-ordinate with other departments and communicate with the displaced residents waiting on the campus. The families have been put up in various hotels, but they reach BB Ganguly Street every morning. However, the activities on the campus has not disrupted classes inside. "This is a very busy and congested area where getting space for a disaster management and coordination exercise of this magnitude is next to impossible. We requested the college authorities for the space and they extended all possible support unconditionally," said an officer. On Wednesday morning, the cops set up a control room on campus headed by a deputy commissioner. A help desk in the driveway had officers of Muchipara police station jotting down details of residents before allowing them to enter their homes in Bowbazar to bring out valuables and essentials. A proper seating arrangement were made for those waiting for their turn. "We are frequently holding meetings with residents to update them about the plan of action. This would not have been possible on the road," said an officer. Cops have also arranged for a small locker and a machine to count notes as a precautionary measure for unclaimed valuables. The security room of the college has been turned into a barracks of sort for reserve personnel. "We may need people for rescue operations and evacuation," the officer added. An ambulance and a water tank were also stationed on the campus. "There is ample space in the college and our classes are not getting disturbed. The students have been asked to respect the displaced residents and disperse right after classes. The college is always ready to help the community," said a senior official of the college.
