EricW76 I agree with your assessment. Matter of fact I have disabled the switch and am running the UV light 100% of the time. I thought that the flow switch design may inspire others to use it for other purposes so I left it listed. I have tried to delete this instructable so others may not go down my road but some how it is entered into a contest and will not allow me to delete it. When the contest is over I will try again.
This is an inventive design. But, turning off a UV lamp and back on will have two problems. One - bulb life is negatively impacted by number of power cycles. Two - and this is much more important - the UV bulb takes significant time to "warm up" when first turned on in order to provide adequate intensity to sterilize the water. The light wavelengths that actually sterilize bacteria is ultraviolet (you cannot see it with the naked eye). For the bulb to provide the necessary intensity, it can take several minutes to warm, depending on the bulb, and the age of the bulb. "Glowing" does not equal UV light. During that time, bacteria laden water will be flowing through your system and into your water system. This is why fluorescent UV systems typically are constant on. There are LED technologies that are coming that will offer that instant on ability you would need to safely do this. But cycling the bulb in fact does not provide safe water, and is not recommended.
Complete newbie step by step, 3D printer with all parts lists
I have not decided yet which type of printer to start with, the traditional XYZ or the delta. I like the idea of the delta but I was wondering about the software interface. How is the spacial conversion done? Or do all of the software packages handle both like Cura 3D? Thanks for a great instructable!
KreatOr,I have basically been on this plan for the last 20 years of my life not knowing that I was following some plan. Its just because of my schedule and habits. That said, I have continued to have a weight issue. Not severe but about 30 pounds over what my ideal should be at my age. For that reason I think some of your text may be a little miss leading. Even though someone misses breakfast every day they cannot eat whatever they want after the fast is over. Calories in still need to be equal or less than calories out depending on if you are maintaining or trying to reduce, respectfully. I have finally realized that and so now I supplement my fasting with conscious calorie consumption. I don't count anymore I just know the amounts for a satisfying meal. Also, I deliberately try to be conscious during my meal as to when I am satisfied (e.g. hunger stops). this has proved to be a real challenge for me since I love to eat. Actually I found that I am very seldom really hungry. Its more of a schedule thing and that brings up another aspect that is seldom discussed. If you live alone these kinds of experiments are easy but if there are other people in your family that eat at the same time as you things can get a lot more challenging if they are not trying to modify their weight in the same way. Just some food for thought.
