  1. These also do effect the stomach. If you've been prescribed antiinflamitary drugs for years all of them eventually stuff up your stomach. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  2. Calculating Pump Water Output.

    Hi bankruatsteve, maybe misled you. I take off the pump primer cap and fill the reservoir. If the footer valve is open, the water just drains through. When it's closed the bore pipe and reservoir/header tank will fill up. I don't actually fill up the bore hole. Sorry for the vagueness. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk

    Hi Crossy, 100% sure it was the footer valve sticking open due to fine sand. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk

    Hi farmerjo, yes Mitsubishi 250 W (sorry wrong pump name before) all set up. Just waiting on my back to come good to continue, probably tomorrow. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  5. 2 stroke lawn mower.

    Yeah the brand names don't seem to mean anything these days. I would say anything mostly made of plastic is out. See if you can have a look at the governor, that's another clue. The brand name one I bought in Aus had a governor made of thin sardine cans cut outs by the look of it. I did have a Thai lawnmower for rough terrain when we first moved into a new house at Minburi years ago. Bought a good Honda motor and the big bladed cutting assembly, with big wheels, near China Town in Banggers. Bit dangerous but would go through anything, it also did a good job of cutting the grass.

  6. Calculating Pump Water Output.

    I read your message thanks. The footer valve was about 1 m from the bottom of the well. The sand is very fine like powder, like crushed dirt. So I'd water the garden in the morning and the next morning no head of water for the pump to prime. I'd squirt the hose down to fill up the bore pipe but it wouldn't fill. Then rock the pipes up and down to work the footer valve and then I could fill the bore pipe and all OK. But it kept happening fairly regularly, but not every day. I have a similar pump and set up about 100 m away and was not having the same problems. I was 98% convinced it was the valve sticking open, but when I bought the pipes up to have a look the footer valve was closed. It wasn't until the 3rd time I pulled the bore pipes up that I thought it might be something to do with the jet assembly and decided to experiment with a 1 pipe simpler arrangement. Now I'm 100% sure it was the footer valve sticking open and that the dual pipe system with the jet at the bottom was working well. Eventually this bore pump will be set up for irrigation and aquaponics use, with storage tank, solenoids etc. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk

    Double jet arrangement was working well, only problem was sand in the footer valve. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  9. Wall Fan Install Wiring

    Seems like a good idea to me to have a switch to turn off a smoking fan. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  10. Calculating Pump Water Output.

    Hi and thanks. My farmer guys screwed it all too tight and there is a crack in the thread, plus the other joint. These pvc blue plastic thread connections into anything else are a real pain. When you do a couple every 6 months, it's judging how much white tape to apply and how tight to screw it up just before it breaks or it will leak. All hit and miss.

    I used to practise a lot of that mechanical lifting motion when I was younger. Anyway, the solution will be on hand. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk

    Thanks for that. I think most of the power cables are OK, except for the underground Al part: sigh. Power is about 210 volts. I think the fall off in performance is due to the broken threaded sections near the venturi allowing air to enter. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  13. Calculating Pump Water Output.

    Not too sure about that. It's our old pump from the Pattaya house. Must be 7 years old. Renter said the pump blew up and they put in a new Hitachi at my expense. I dropped the unit off the other day at the pump shop. Picked up yesterday and all working fine, so they say at a cost of B 250. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  14. For what it's worth, there is light at the end of a tunnel. After a couple of years of rehab. I could walk 20 odd km a day, dragging tires over sand and redoing my surf bronze. Of course I had no friends and family left, cause everyone eventually deserts someone in continuous pain. Where there's a will there's a way, but a rough journey. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  15. From someone who has had 3 previous back surgerys, four counting a spinal chord stimulator, and 5 probably in July. It is best to avoid surgery. I supposedly had a great surgeon for the first operation, but it was stuffed up. Other opinions should be fully explored before you approach spinal surgery. Money should not be a factor in spinal surgery. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
