Water Hammer

Water hammer is caused by water going through a pipe and hitting a bend and changing direction. When water hits the pipe as it changes direction it causes a shockwave, this is the hammer sound. It's most often caused by quick closing valves on appliances such as dishwashing and clothes washing machines. But it can also be caused by the quick shutting off of water by toilet tanks and faucets in sinks, showers and bathtubs. A solution to the water hammer problem, in more modern homes, is to install devices called air chambers. The chambers or cushions are filled with air, they absorb the shockwaves. The problem is that over time these devices often become partly or completely filled with water. This happens because the air, over time, is absorbed by the water, and water takes the lost air's place.The damage water hammer causes can lead to a pipe breaking or bursting, which can lead to property damage or even injury. A professional evaluation is recommended, both to determine the extent of the problem and to get...

Pneumatic wheel casters are a viable option for many different industries and applications. While most people associate casters with solid wheels, there are times when having an inflated tire is preferred. The tire may be inflated with a gel, liquid, gas or air - the weight bearing load the tire is rated for will determine the inflation substance. Here is more information about why pneumatic wheel casters may be a better choice for your application.Why pneumatic wheels and not solid wheels?Since most casters tend to be made with solid wheels it seems like almost a throwback in terms of technology to produce a set with pneumatic tires.

How to Select and Install a Home Well Water Chlorinator

Common household bleach can used in an automatic chlorinator system to kill coliform bacteria and provide disinfected water. In some wells iron or sulfur bacteria can create 'rotten egg' odors and cause staining of fixtures and appliances. Chlorinators can also be used to address these problems.The first step in selecting a chlorinator is to find out your basic water chemistry and have your well water tested. A general mineral analysis will provide a list of the common minerals (calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, dissolved solids) alkalinity and pH. The pH is important because the higher the pH the more chlorine is required.How Much Chlorine Should I Plan to Add?Chlorine is injected in parts per million ('ppm') which is the same as saying milligrams per liter ('mg/L'). For bacteria you want 1 to 2 ppm of chlorine and approximately 10 minutes of contact time. If the water is colder than 50F you may need longer contact time.For each part per million of iron or manganese you want to inject 1 ppm of chl...
