Posted in thread: A little freaked out- Please tell me what's in my filter on 10-05-2015 at 04:34 PM
Since you allowed the water flow to slowly go down to a trickle, lots of stuff got stuck to the
pipes. When you changed the filter, water moved much faster than before which knocked a lot of
Posted in thread: Understanding Thermal expansion Tanks on 10-01-2015 at 01:24 PM
I don't know how most Plumbers set them up, but some tanks can't take much more than a 30 lb
difference between min and max pressures. If yours spikes much over 30 psi, the extra pressure
could take t...

To further clarify; water can not be compressed.Phish did a great job of explaining that. I
would have had so many if's, and's, or's and butts in there that it would have been totally

I have never been a fan of inline filters (called "Whole house filters") and the sink tops are
pretty useless in my opinion. If you can find one with granulated activated carbon (not the

I have never been one to recommend softeners to remove iron. They make iron filters for that
and they do a much better job. Even the iron filter won't get 100%.I would hate to say one way
or the other...

There are two types of iron. Ferrous and ferric. Ferric is in more of a solid form and can be
trapped while ferrous iron must be oxidized to be trapped. So it depends on the type of iron
you have. I'm...
Posted in thread: I was just told by GE that using aluminum/zinc anoderod for smelly water is a fallacy on 09-16-2015 at 01:57 PM
From all I've learned about sulfur odor and anode rods; changing to a different kind can stop
the problem. I have also learned that bacteria can live in water up to 140°. So what would the
anode rod h...
Posted in thread: Shower pump not starting on 09-15-2015 at 03:08 PM
I'm sorry, but I am not sure what a shower pump is. Does it boost pressure? Does it; or is it
supposed to come on when you turn on the shower's valve? I don't understand the cold hot deal
Posted in thread: Weak stream on 09-11-2015 at 02:24 PM
Why do I have weaker pressure with a stronger pump? Is the pressure tank to small or maybe I
need to install a lower pressure switch?Just because the horsepower is larger doesn't mean the
pump will pu...

Good idea. Here in Florida grocery stores carry swimming pool test kits that test for chlorine
and PH. They are pretty accurate. I don't have much faith in test strips, but the kits that use
