Getting Sprinklers Ready for Spring

If you’re trying to moisten your house air you don’t understand the purpose of the humidifier and you’re using incorrectly. Fan assist humidifiers are problematic and many companies have turned away from them. They may be mounted on the hot side of your duct work, but this can warp the plastic and make it brittle depending on the furnace and the knowledge or lack thereof of the installer. Also they’re known to leak, have their fans fail, or just generally make a big mess spraying water around. The drum style is a mid road humidifier that is useful when you don’t have a drain in your furnace room, but can plug up and make a mess if you don’t have a water softener, or are incorrectly installed. They can be much worse in a drainless room as they can pump enough water if the float fails to flood the base of the furnace and the room. Finally the flow-through style is the better unit to go with. It has a pad in the center with coated mesh that becomes saturated with water, at the base of this pad is a drainage tubing, so the excess water flows down into your house drain. The humidifier is installed on the cold side of the duct avoiding the possibility of heat warping of the plastic. Heat is taken from the hot side of the furnace by installing flex ducting to the humidifier that has it’s housing mounted on the cold side.

I also have a Watt inverter that I use to keep my phone and laptop charged. I have drained the battery to the point it will not start the Transit so I am trying to add additional power to keep from drawing the battery down for a longer period of time.

After reading your article, it sounds like I should avoid drawing the vehicle battery down too low. Would you recommend dual batteries, a deep cycle battery, or…? I would greatly appreciate any ideas.

Rainwater collection to the corner s for a hand-washing sink, before entering the end-wall doors, could be cool. A solar shower bag for hot water could be nice on the sunny side. Corners are stronger, and a good place to locate tanks or other heavy elements. That’s the “back” side, would tend to face a garden or downhill area when possible.

You often see copper and galvanized steel plumbing mixed in residential water systems with nothing separating them other than a little thread sealant or Teflon plumbing tape.

The galvanic connection copper to steel can be trouble-free for years or the steel plumbing can begin to corrode almost as soon as the connection is tight.

The fitting uses a steel collar on the steel side and a copper collar on the copper side and isolation bushings to keep the parts separate. Flow out, not back. Back flow occurs in municipal water systems or within a house when there’s a sudden and severe drop in water pressure that causes water to flow back through pipes opposite the direction that it normally flows.

When a runaway car severs a fire hydrant, for example, parts of a municipal system will see a flow reversal as water gushes out the hole where the hydrant once stood. The same thing can happen if there’s a massive leak within your house. If your house’s water is supplied by a municipal water system and you do a lot of work outside with a garden hose, use a vacuum-breaker fitting threaded onto the end of the hose bib the valve mounted on the outside of the house.
