How do Noritz tankless water heaters work? Noritz water heaters work on demand — they only heat water when necessary. When a hot water fixture is opened or hot water is required by an appliance, the heater will sense the demand and heat water accordingly. Noritz tankless water heaters continuously heat the water through a heat exchanger. Instead of wasting energy and money re-heating and storing water when it is not needed, tankless water heaters provide only as much hot water as needed. What is the difference between a storage tank water heater and a tankless water heater?

15 Things NOT to Do in New York City

Acid You can throw a flask of acid as a splash weapon. Treat this attack as a ranged touch attack with a range increment of 10 feet. A direct hit deals 1d6 points of acid damage. Every creature within 5 feet of the point where the acid hits takes 1 point of acid damage from the splash. A direct hit deals 1d6 points of fire damage.

Since the motors are above the water, jet pumps are easier to service than submersibles.

Sep 5, Re: We are here in Tarrant County and our well is a shallow well at about feet. There is lot of iron in this area so we have been using a pretty extensive filtration setup air pump, oxidation tank, two huge tanks for filtering the iron, and then a water softener for the house only. Before we ever moved in, the irrigation guy turned on our irrigation without making sure the filtration was working properly, which caused a mess of course.

Part of my irritation with the well and filtration has been that we still get some minor staining on our property, on the concrete. Inside, things have been fine but one irritation I have had is that our hot water when you fill up a tub all the way begins to get slightly discolored. We do have electric water heaters, which the filtration people told me is not a good combination with a well system even if filtered but I have also wondered if it is also our softener. So when we have the plumbers switch us over to city water, I am going to have them flush out our heaters and also replace the anode rods and I will leave the softener bypassed the first month we are on city water.

We have septic so we do not have sewer. Bob, what effects could city water have on our water heaters 2 electric 40 gallon AO Smith water heaters with a recirculation pump? So my plan was to have the plumber out the following week. My thinking was to use the city water for everything, to just leave the softener inline but bypassed to see what the water is like without it and to see what our hot water is like without it, to cap off the well line and to turn off all of the power to the well etc.

I figured I should leave all of our filtration equipt.

Do you carry your handgun with a round in the chamber?

Not on Well Water? These filter platforms even “included” an electric Chlorination unit. The chlorination units available to franchise dealers and plumbers and independent filter dealers is ineffective for processing well water.

This list is going to be for the average person to get by if we have a SHTF event, not start a new life in the wild west.

The likelihood of there not being one is high since the house’s main system is on a well. Typically, a water main must be located directly out front of your property on either side of the street for you to be able to use city water. If it’s down the street, you can’t simply run a small service tap to it. You’ll run into easement issues with cutting across other people’s yards or running an excessively long service connection in public right-of-way.

Our bodies are very good at adapting to temporary pain, even sever pain think childbirth, people moving heavy obstacles after an injury, some cut of his own arm, etc.

I update this list every six months to keep things fresh as NYC is constantly changing. This basically means you now have more than options to choose from. Each hood has its own special vibe. The gay nightlife scene is huge here too. The also have numerous sports bars for catching any game and a great foodie scene. Good restaurants and shops in the areas. Greenwich Village — a big college student area with its proximity to NYU.

Plenty of bars and restaurants dot this area and it has a busy nighttime scene. Also home to a big LGBT community. This is where you dance til dawn at places much less pretentious than the clubs in the Meatpacking District. Keep in mind many places are cash only. This is one of my favorite areas in Manhattan. New bars, restaurants, and shops are beginning to crop up. Meatpacking District — an upscale and trendy area ripe with stylish lounges, swanky nightclubs, and designer stores.

Tweet on Twitter OK, so you have decided that you want to take steps to protect your family from unseen events. You may not know what events to plan for or you could have a much defined idea of the threats you see, but regardless you recognize a need. There are people who come to the Prepper Journal after they read something on another prepping blog or they may have been visiting our site for a year.

The newer visitors are usually just getting starting in this crazy world of Prepping and if they are anything like I was at the beginning, knowing where to start can be pretty daunting.

I was miles from cell phone reception and unarmed.

Can you imagine everyone within a thousand-mile radius losing the electrical grid and all technology at one time? Is there a way to protect your personal electronics or your home electrical systems? There are several ways to protect against an EMP attack. One EMP protection technique is simply known as electrical shielding. If an electrical cable has a grounded external braided shield, the electromagnetic field will not penetrate the shield.

It will induce a current in the shield and release that current harmlessly into the ground.

What Do You Mean “You Don’t Have a Bike”?!

Acorn May 7, , Do you ride on the sidewalks, or do you ride along with the traffic in the road? May 7, , Wear a helmet, get lights and a rear view mirror and get out there. Clearly some places are more bike friendly than others, but I used to commute to work from Downtown Baltimore Md to Columbia Md all the time and it was easy to find a route that was fast and safe, even riding through the heart of the city.

Once you have done each and every fixture in the rig, you should have full protection against freezing pipes in your freshwater system.

To my utter dismay, they no longer made a pump that would fit this type of well. I could either salvage a manual pump from an old well a complicated assembly with a push rod and leathers or come up with my own design. Thus, the inertia pump was born of necessity. Since inertia pumps contain only one moving part and are constructed from durable materials, they are extremely reliable. They work in situations where more sophisticated pumps fail and do not lose their prime.

Inertia pumps are ideal for supplying campgrounds and cabins, bringing in new wells nothing will cause a powered pump to seize up faster than pumping dirty water , or for emergency water in case there is a power outage. Unfortunately, inertia pumps do not produce a sufficient rate of flow or enough water pressure to supply sprinkler systems and indoor plumbing.

You will need the following to build an inertia pump: In order for the solid metal ball to seat properly, the inside of the this compression fitting MUST be beveled. Otherwise, it will not work. Wrap the male pipe threads with teflon tape.

Welcome to the fun with liquids page! The information here is mostly based on my own personal experience. Working with plumbing is pretty straightforward and usually isn’t terribly dangerous, unless you gouge yourself with a screwdriver or drop a wrench on your foot. However, improperly installed or poorly repaired plumbing can lead to your RV filling with water or other far more disgusting substances!

Some of the suggested RV modifications require you to be at least a little handy Don’t undertake any project beyond your capabilities. Introduction One of the best things about an RV is it’s ability to provide all the comforts of home even when you are miles away from civilization. Key to our comfort are simple things like running water and indoor toilet facilities. Lucky for us, our modern RVs are equipped with complete miniaturized equivalents of the household plumbing that we all take for granted.

Even small RVs have partial or complete self-containment capabilities and the basic design of the plumbing systems are pretty much the same, from a pop up camper all the way up to a big class A motorhome. Let’s take a look at a simple block diagram: A couple of notes: Some rigs have separate sewer connections for the black and gray tanks and a few rigs even have 2 different gray water tanks, but the basic system is still the same Occasionally, a RV manufacturer will short cut good design principals and plumb the bathroom sink into the black water tank, just because it’s easier.
