Basic Chemistry Saves Pipes! :razz:
I will GOAT you while I sip on Cognac whilst I rub Judy's soft delicate red face as she admires the way my platform serve glides through the blue clay and inside of Ivan's aching wretched cavity of love exposing epic Basaltious Amplified inner fibers of a cosmic and extraordinary life.
This is water under the bridge now. Can you guys suggest something constructive for the next step instead of just insulting me?
So now I disassemble the fountain and rinse the pipes with what??
I nearly said something stupid but decided I'll say something smart instead.
FOUNTAINS ARE OVERRATED
Technically, you want to keep the water within a certain Langlier Saturation Index to minimize pipe corrosion. So you don't want it too acidic or basic and with sufficient alkalinity provide to provide a nice protective coating of calcium carbonate.
I am going to disassemble the fountain, place the non-electric parts into the bathtub, fill it up with warm water, drop in a soap bar and squeeze some shampoo, and forget about the whole thing for a while. I'll deal with it if and when there comes a time to take a bath or do the dishes.
Lol look in my thread, I post a video like every 6 weeks haha
I can save you the trouble, pvaudio is an athletic looking gentleman with a steadily improving and rather nice 2HBH and a loose, wristy but basically pretty good modern type FH.
(arms it a bit, but meh, decent)
he doesn't rate himself, for excellent reasons, but I reckon 4.5 would be in the zone if he can serve and contruct points like he hits groundstrokes.
Mikeler I have no clue, but I LOVE his pants size.
He's right. I do have a weird pant size.
uh not sure want to know how he knows...
I can't answer that.
..............Ooook! Anybody want to play poker?
The Cult of Mediocrity
Posted in the wrong place. Sorry
Chemical cleaning isn't as effective as mechanical. In other words, use a brush.
...or you can just put in new pipes. PVC pipes don't corrode.
Protective calcium carbonate? Fine, after using Drain-O, he can let the pipes soak in a solution with Tums antiacid.
i went looking for one of pvaudio's vids, and you posted about your problems finding pants (and why) in either the post after the one with the vid or the one before it, something like that..
no mystery, really
You are right in a sense - it really does need to be a combination of chemical and mechanical cleaning. This morning I was so distraught over the then-defunct fountain that I took the whole thing apart. The filters around the engine were clogged with dirt and debris, as it turned out. I submerged everything (except the electrical in/out ports) into a running soapy bathtub and voila - working like a charm now.
I have a related question on advanced piping and fountaining. It looks really cool, with the lights and everything in the dark, when I stick incense sticks between the rocks of the fountain and light them up. The ashes fall into the water though, naturally. Ashes are alkaline, so this is good for the fountain?
I'd like to see zapvor get hit in the phace.
Talk to your peeps at the local Pinch a Penny.
not sure but think this could be the torreball. what u think?
lol nah........i dont think it would make it over the net
lol i play with some good players and have been hit before. why dont you visit and you can try hitting me in the "phace", whatever that means
I think he means face? :twisted:
lol...u not getting it.
can you explain?
here's a clue if u haven't figured it out already. look to earlier post.
That only shows my nerdy single poast.
that's why posted "a clue" vs "clues".
feel free to further enlighten the zap but remember bonus points drop with each additional clue.
yea.................this is tw i dont really care. lol
I think we all know that's not true. lol
lol do a search. i have like random stupid comments all over on here. sometimes i even come out and say its comedy hour for me.
Let's all lol or maybe even LOL.
Corners and Travlerajm.
I repeat I need to see the torreball!
I want to see Nostradamus vs Fedace
That could alter the space-time continuum.
not sure since hearing it's mythical but maybe this? what u think?
Not nearly enough spin.
ok maybe textured spin? what u think?
Always admired these little creatures how on earth do they manage to make such a perfect ball from the **** If only people could learn that, they could become ball machines.
Calling out Torres...like so many here have.
lol very nice
You would think the torreball would be on the tennis channel by now.
Well, don't know if this thread is still being used for its original purpose, but TonLars and I hit last night. By hitting, I'm implying that I was supremely rusty (two hits in the last month-and-a-half) and he was on a not 100% ankle. That being said, all I can do is hit drop shots and chip'n'charge like a madman to have a chance, and even then, phew... It was fun tho.
Was fun to hit Jonny, thanks! Youve got some good hands at net and some shot-making! Hopefully you can get some more hits in this winter
post a video!
