One trip to the store

If you live far away from a hardware store and you are doing something such as plumbing.You may do like I did often.Drive 26 miles to the hardware store and come back to find out you bought the wrong part.There must be 30 electrical wall outlets for 110/220 AC. Once a guy told me to get some clay.Stick it on the plug or recepticle then he would get me the right one when I came.There are so many things made it is hard to know all this if you are not doing the things as a daily job trade.But if you have a modem you can find out a lot you may need to know ahead of time to save time and money.If you know all the things made for these connections you may find a fitting that makes the job easier or better.or how to get the right part and size. I like this thing where the guy hooked all the galvanized? pipe fittings to each other.You can see what you may want to use. But I made a mistake of buying "black iron" pipe once thinking I could save money useing pieces for water line.It rusted fast,So did the water.Then I learned that the black iron is just for gas line,Or maybe airline too.My biggest discovery this century has been that my ignorance of the facts in whatever endeavor I am attempting is the biggest drag on my economy.This has done me more dammage that the tax collector.(if you can believe that!!People who know me can)Here is a bunch of fittings all hooked up in one piece.This could be all those threaded ones available to the public.But I bet there is more.


I know that plumber!!!    Posted 06-10-2003 at 19:43:20       [Reply]  [No Email]

Here is a site that is hard to find if you need the information.I had a job in the plants (construction)that I has to order fuel for two elipse tanks.elipse tanks are just regular tanks with an oval end.They are regular untill you try to calculate volume.You see them on many trucks and they have fuel or water in them .They can have them at farms for fuel tanks.This site calls them milk tanks.So you go to look for> MILK TANK.But go next to it,>PARTIALLY Filled milk tank. OK,The tank is 8ft widex 6ft tall x 14 FT long .You have 1/2 FT of liquid.You want to order exactly enough to put the level to 1/2 ft from top. So how much do you order? Many engineers get a problem here.But this site does calculations fast so you can vary the levels and end up with the gallons you need to order.This milk tank calculator wil be on second page i think.But look at Partially filled milk tank to do the varible volume measurements.>> http://grapevine.abe.msstate.edu/~fto/tools/vol/box.html
