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
We have a request from a fine cottager near the narrows…please consider ..they are nice folks. You can reply private or public
“Hi there – I was wondering, is it possible to ask if anyone on the lake has older kids who are interested in being a counsellor for our kids some of the summer or any kids on the lake looking for playmates”
Picture is just for attention
If this barrel is yours , the property owner is asking to please pick it up from the ..NARROWS…North side. Thank you.
We are in difficult times….if you staying isolated ..and this barrel is yours ..please respond… to this post and we will go from there..
The white barrel is still waiting for its owner as well
Look….we all share the ..COMMON ELEMENT ,,,Brandy lake.
Everyone of us should consider being responsible for her health and beauty.
I have had my bay filled with sawdust…picked up floating beer can boats. Lumber with nail or screws sticking out..?????
Cottagers at the far west end are constantly picking up floating garbage.
Work together ..keep Brandy Lake ..nice…she is…..our common Front Yard.
So…..I hate un-natural city lookin grass on our natural Muskoka lot.. .so I hack it down.
My window bustin (ugggg) powerful Echo gas trimmer required a carburetor kit. Which would then require tearing the carb ,,..down and trying to remember where all the little parts go
Found this on Amazon….complete new carb including spark plug for about $26.00
Like …are you kidding me???
Zip bang boom..easy fix!
