Re: A little ray of sunshine from Australia

We've been pretty lucky so far up in Queensland but it would only take a one idiot as they say to start a mess like they have down in Victoria at present. Social distancing, yeah, good idea but all the places one goes, it is established when one goes in the front door or the checkouts ( if you're lu...

Re: Any laws on dumping of construction material?

I would tend to give the stuff a wide berth.
There were apparently some instances of the Chinese crap containing asbestos.

Rub some on each morning, would certainly be a cure against those who take absolutely no notice of the current social distancing requirements.

Re: Lightning conductor installation information

Installed a lightning system in a local hospital in Australia a few years back as part of a 1.5 million dollar electrical upgrade. Cost for that particular unit with one antenna rod was around the $20,000 mark. We do annual checks on the system and so far, after almost 10 years, not one strike has b...

Just don't live at the end of a tee junction street or apparently you will end up with more spirits through the house than you bargained for.

Re: Technical Correctness

If I ask someone to turn an air conditioner down do they set it from say 25 deg c to 23 deg thinking that is a lower figure - OR - set it to 27 assuming I want the unit to use less energy, reduce work load. It depends on the setting...if you select "heat" on reverse cycle, then down is less than if...

Re: 12v batteries 20ah

The first one I bought is a UNI-T brand. I had thought it would do the job. It measures AC, DC voltage and AC amperage as well as continuity. It cannot measure DC amperage. Have a couple of different Uni_T meters just for use at home on the bench. Not many have the necessary CAT rating for out on t...

Re: 12v batteries 20ah

The 21w quoted may well be what is referred to as the "equivalent" as perceived by eye wattage and not the actual current draw.
Best to do some testing with an ammeter.

Re: Question about this new Bio Diesel

If the bio diesel is anything like the ethanol in petrol, and from past comments it appears like it is, then the effect is as follows. Ethanol is an alcohol fuel and as such it requires more volume to produce the same energy when burned. Result with petrol engines is those with normal aspirated engi...

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.
