Let me know what you guys think of this one. Anybody else do this type of thing with the old plumbing parts of the takeout? A while ago there was a post on the page about repurposing salvage parts from plumbing and boiler change outs I didn’t have this project finished at the time and can’t find it to repost it in that feed on the wall. This is a project that I made as an anniversary gift for some friends . They have been married 60 years he likes to repurpose stuff and makes yard decorations and clocks out of hubcaps things like that. They spend a lot of time with the flowers and vegetables in the garden so I figured I’d give them some flowers that wouldn’t wilt over the winter. Also I was fortunate to find an all the license plate in my pile of junk that matched the month and year that they were married. I had some old blank valve tags that I use to create a custom one.
Thanks, @Larry Weingarten
. I spent my whole career listening to pros tell me that a pump will always raise the pressure at its discharge, no matter where you pipe it.
Well, because it’s a PUMP. That’s what pumps do. They PUMP. Pump means making PRESSURE. Always. And it comes out of the nozzle. It shoves the water into the compression tank. That’s why those old tanks waterlogged.
Then their arms folded. Their heads snapped a nod. And they smirked.
I watched that for 50 years.
That’s why I wrote this story.
Thanks for getting it.
This house is an old carriage house that is originally from the 1870’s.
We installed this EK1 Accel boiler with 40 gallon storage tank for domestic hot water and 40 gallon Argosy buffer tank piped in two pipe configuration for a new panel rad system.
We are operating this system via outdoor reset for constant circulation and trv’s on the radiators.
I have an elderly neighbor who pays in chocolate chip cookies.
I couldn't be happier with the arrangement
Most consider 1996 to be the end of millennials so he would be gen Z. By a lot.
And I was actually 11 on December 8th, 1980 so the whole story is fakakta.
Damn boomers and their exaggerations.
I've got a feeling that this is the oldest conversation in the world. I suspect the dead men from 130 years ago said the same thing about the dead men from 100 years ago.
Who knows, maybe some of the old cave drawings were really poking fun at the new generation.
All we can really do is pass on as much as we can and make some of it stick before we join the dead ones.
Hi, It seems to me that much of what's written above boils down to building a potential client's trust in you. Once they are sold on you, selling them the right design and equipment just has to be a lot easier.
