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.
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.
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
Example of Brandy Lake Innovation…making it enjoyable for their dog
Apparently..the challenge was ..engineering the correct floatation and angle at rest yet buoyant enough not drop quickly when the dog stepped on.
You don’t want the ramp top. ..fixed so it rests underwater as slime would accumulate on the walking surface making it slippery.
I assume it is removable for the winter as the ice movement would rip it off.
Nice job…Brandy Lake cottager talent. Who else has unique innovation.
