Back To School

Hoping for a “Safe Time” to the parents and kids as we head into this overwhelming  unknown window of getting back to school.

I wear an N95 mask in my garage when in high dust activities…so granted, cloth has less restriction ..but to wear for one hour ish was hard.   N95 has a metal nose clamp..but even with that glasses fogged up….

Feel free to add your stories.

Stay Safe

Do I understand that people have anxiety about this return to school? Absolutely. But we are no longer in March and April when things were out of control and people didn’t know this virus as well as they do now. So I don’t understand the scaremongering going on by the teachers’ unions, their outright dishonesty on the Sick Kids report and their constant need to pick a fight.

We’re all in this together, so let’s work together to make this plan as successful as possible and adapt as challenges present themselves.

Brine Tank Maintenance

Many  have BRINE  tanks on Brandy Lake for water purification or softener systems.    I clean mine once a year.

What happens  ..dirt accumulates at the bottom and prevents the brine from being sucked up the tiny hole….   The principle was invented by  Giovanni Battista Venturi.  Hence Venturi.  Basically two converging cones…big to small..small to big.  This increases the speed of the fluid between them.  This speed creates a vacuum thus sucking brine from the tank through a pipe connect to the high flow speed area.   This same pipe is used for fill

My tank has a raised bottom maybe 60 mm preventing salt particles from clogging the pipe.    A high level float level switch prevents tank  overflow on fill…

The only trick part is removing  pipe from the tank.   Do not overtighten….just snug when installing

Note..the white flange/pipe , in the end of the long pipe… that needs to be pulled out before nut will come off.  It is maybe 15 mm long.  Inside the nut is another grommet that prevents leaking.    See picture

Usually let the salt run low….then scoop it out and save it for winter ice.    The residue  water would have high salt concentration so make sure it goes over ground before hitting the lake…if at all.

Thoroughly wipe the tank with a safe solvent…that’s it.    To fill the tank..fast forward through the settings  until you reach ..:”REFILL” and let that go.  I measure my level with one bag of salt…..so I have a mark inside tank
