Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

Manometer tubing is mounted at the surface. Line from the well bottom to one side of the manometer. Changes in level create changes in pressure which in turn create changes in the manometer. Setup would require first knowing what range of measurement is required to make manometer tube correct size. ...

Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

Manometer tube would seem a "simple" and accurate differential measurement alternative.
Would need to be installed correctly.

Re: TP-Link... how?

Then access it the way I said before. I believe the booster would have to be connected to the router via Ethernet, but not 100% sure. That's the way I have it set up with my home computer and a laptop. That's how I just connected a booster to re-configure after a new modem installed. Netcom wifi bo...

Re: So, when did they re-invent the spark-plug?

My query is, if modern vehicles are so terrific, why do they get replaced more and more on a regular basis? Do they need a new set of tyres or the oil change done? Average age in 2019 was 11.8 years, up 4% from 5 years previous. I would imagine that would depend on many factors and is a rather broa...

Re: So, when did they re-invent the spark-plug?

My Dad(91 years young) is one of the old original motor mechanics and he marvels at the longevity of the modern engine. Problem is they are seemingly so overdone with sensors, probes, engine management systems, brake control systems etc. When there is a problem, it has to be found and confirmed with...

Re: So, when did they re-invent the spark-plug?

Count me in as another devotee of pre-80s car design. I'd replace points and condenser annually. The water pump and various filters were easy to access and replace. Pulling out the generator and replacing the carbon brushes was an hours work. The one-piece exhaust pipe and muffler on my MG midget c...

Re: Australia Burns

Serious question: Do you think Australians affected by the bush fires will be compensated by the government or will the insurance companies bear the burden? Usual action is that if a disaster is announced by the government, as it was when the floods hit here in 2013, then an amount of compensation ...

While everyone is talking swithes, compressor etc., it might also be lose of coolant (freon) as there would be no cooling but compressor would still run. Just my 2 baht worth as I'm no expert. They're a sealed unit. If it's lost freon then it has also sucked in gazonks of moisture and whatever cont...

Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

3/4" might be enough. If you work it out , it is double the volume ability to that of 1/2" pipe. 1/2" for example (R2.Pi) is 0.25 (radius) * 0.25 * 3.142 = 0.196 sq inch 3/4" ..... 0.375 * 0.375 * 3.142 = 0.441 sq inch. Over whatever length it is double volume. e.g.....(for 1/2" and 100 inch length ...
