  • How to Size Your Off-Grid Solar Batteries

    Are you being sarcastic? you use the gas, costs extra to go get the gas, and much of the heater goes around the side of the kettle. submerged elements are highly efficient. What makes the kettle less efficient is people tend to over fill it, and then re-boil the water over and over, and often the water doesn't need to be boiled to 100+ degrees.Woodfired can be cheaper if you have ready wood, preferrably deadfall. My parents have that set up. Although it is not available in many areas due to the town/city pollution regulations.

    A Best kept secret to Losing weight

    A large amount of fat/bellyfat can be reduced just by cutting gluten. as that also cuts a lot of carbs too. However, our society has promoted gluten products and removing them results in your instestings healing back up, which removes that full (bloated) feeling of glue slowly sticking to your insides. Amazing the difference it makes, if you can afford it.

    A flow regulator...well google it. it limits the volume of liquid and pressure, usually by a mesh or frame with holes in it...in fact your compression disks are pretty much flow regulators.I would consider it an inspection junction, or inspection point.Junction because that's effectively what it does, it allows extra water flow by adding more and more parallel branches, while keeping an easy to find, narrower (and stronger) pipes and tubes.

    that is not a flow regulator.

    the carbon wont do anything wet.for the material filter, what micro size are you going down to? would dairy "sock" filters be a more convenient way to get them?have you considered zeolite for a primary particle filter, it backflushes better than sand.What temperature does the water re-feed at? I've got full solar water, but would love a way to move up to a 300mm shower head (or multihead shower)...without the excess wastage. (hoping also to move to prodominantly rain fed water supply)

    you're going to need a good UV filter to deal with the bacteria, fungus, and algae you're growing in your human cell medium with it's plentiful light supply. (water + light = algae, unless water is very sterile.
