    Pissed off at PG&E

    It is. 1. Any sort of power outages around here used to be an extremely rare occurrence where the only real reason you'd get them is if a tree branch happened to fall on a power line or some other accident, or the rare rolling blackout if temperatures got into the extreme range. And I agree...

    Pissed off at PG&E

    Yup, you save money by neglecting stuff... then something bad happens and "oh snap what do you mean we're at fault" lawsuits drop, and now everyone pays because they'd rather there be no chance for another lawsuit that almost bankrupts them so they'll just as happily turn power off if it gets...

    Pissed off at PG&E

    They are aren't they? Never thought of those. I know there is that big substation on Geneva & Bayshore, but yeah never thought that you don't see any lines coming out of it towards San Francisco... guess we just have to deal with all the ugly power, cable, phone lines instead.

    Pissed off at PG&E

    Can they put those high voltage transmission lines underground? I mean neighborhood power sure, but I can't imagine 100+ kV lines being buried. Plus the areas where they probably cause the most problem due to fire (mountainous, remote, heavily wooded) it probably is not very easy nor...

    Not even take over the utility, just sell it off. Lets have a bunch of smaller power companies

    Borrowing the Club's - Coral Bandsaw

    I think technically Coral Reefer is closer to San Jose... but only by like a block or so :D And yeah I have one, it was dumped off on my doorstep some time ago and has been collecting dust in my overly crowded downstairs area.

    Calibrating a Jebao DP-4

    I'm not familiar with that unit, does the calibration cover all pumps? Or does each pump have a calibration ability? If the later then it doesn't matter if everything is the same length. If the former, then calibration is probably largely useless, good enough for an average amount but just...

    October 2020 RODI system recommendations

    Ok 3 is fairly easy, dirt, clay, rust, whatever bigger chunks that may get into your water system if you've never done it unscrew the aerator on any faucet and you'll probably see a bunch of gunk inside. This can happen due to old pipes, whenever the city works on the sewage system, or any...

    October 2020 RODI system recommendations

    You could, the main draw back is the purity of the water. Yes you can get out chloramines with prime, and sure if you used a sediment filter you can get out bigger chunky stuff, but the smaller stuff will get through, whatever your TDS is before starting any treatment will be after...

    October 2020 RODI system recommendations

    You absolutely need carbon filters for SF water, we do have chloramines, and you need to filter those out before your membrane. "SF water is pretty clean" is a TDS thing, which unless it's super high isn't really a sign of cleanliness, it's just a relatively easy measurable we can look at...

    Eric's dream... (100g)

    Oh if I was single again... I could totally see doing that, especially considering back then I had my emergency supply of 10 cent bricks of ramen

    Ashburn’s backyard 150g low maintenance tank

    That picture of the temp graph looks a little misleading too, it says minimum temp was 60, but the graph shows ~68 as a min temp.

    Ashburn’s backyard 150g low maintenance tank

    Would be interesting to see where this goes, I know at one point way way back when I put a relatively small (27 gallon) tank in a room right in the direct sunlight and the tank temp exceeded 90 regularly (which happened to do solar physics or something because the room never got anywhere close...

    Where can I find some black abs board.

    If the tank isn't filled I would even say put something dark under the tank

    RODI Leaks.. How to prevent?

    warm yes, not hot though, in fact depending on the brand water above 110°F could damage the membrane.

    Pharma Magnesium Sulfate

    It is, it's epsom salt, RHF recipe calls for a mixture of Magnesium sulfate and magnesium chloride, the reasoning being that if you use just mag sulfate your sulfate levels may rise too much. Whether or not this is a problem for everyone who knows, but there is a reason for mixing...

    Kessil WiFi vs. Spectral Controller... Any Thoughts?

    I have the 360x wireless controller that I won from a Kessil tour some time back, never used it though because I don't have Kessils! I was just going to sell it or auction it/raffle it for the club at the frag swap that we were planning, then COVID hit.

    Switching from Black to Blue bucket Red Sea & some other Newbie ??s

    ^^ What he said... if you're really feeling a bit guilty about wasting water, look into adding a "water saver kit" which basically is a second RO membrane that you run the RO waste from the first membrane directly into and you can reduce the total waste from anywhere from 1:2 to 1:1, plus you...

    Switching from Black to Blue bucket Red Sea & some other Newbie ??s

    Q1: My first thought is your calcium issue is due to your lower salinity, a salt's calcium value is based on a sG of 1.026 usually, so having it at 1.020 could definitely explain why the lower calcium. But not knowing what your calcium value was before, can't say for certain. If you...
