😆 Don’t you just love the ads on this forum – I’m asking about removing my bathroom/ensuite and there are advertisements selling bathrooms!
Thanks Redhern, thats a great idea to leave the plumbing if I want to sell.
I know people think its important to have more than 1 bathroom but this has only been a recent development in housing! I’m…[Read more]
Ooh, I’m not ready to consider getting rid of all my books …they actually account for the greater part when moving house.
Hmm, I’m not sure of the effect of reading in bed without a light source other than the ipad ?

The small amounts of greywater are stored until it’s full, then on the pump goes.
But there must be some standby power used?

My guess is the amount of pump use you need would depend on how much grey water you have.
Is there a method for you to switch the pump on and off at will?

But how do you know when it is full?

We’ve inherited a new Envirocycle sewerage system which is supposed to have air blowers running all the time, plus a pump for sprinklers.

Can you tell me what your electric hot water system used approx?
I challenge the normal assumption that we all need an average sized fridge and I have considered alternatives…can you tell me your chest fridge, is it one of the new styles that is really a chest freezer?

57 posts for me to hit 1000 mark….can’t believe I’ve got this far! :ohmy:
Oops I forget to add what the title of this post was about….
has anyone else calculated their hourly kWh useage for common appliances?
I’ve calculated it costs around 70 cents for 4 hours on my computer.
I’ve still to calculate my electrical water heater.
In addition to my previous comments about putting ‘number of replies’ and ‘number of views’ columns alongside each other –
Is it necessary to have beside the post that the original post “was started 67 days and 18 hours ago” ????
It is very confusing and detracts from relevant information like “latest posts”.
🙂 editingly yours
Just an addit on the design of the forum page – the splitting up of the columns for “number of replies” and ‘page views’ adds to the clutter from a design perspective.
Like the old site, it was much clearer to have the two columns with numbers placed alongside each other.
Having the ‘number of replies” in the far left column somehow gives more…[Read more]
Okay, the forum page is looking much better today – less busy, less irrelevant information, quicker to open and cleaner to read. Not sure if the size of the characters has been reduced too but it does look much improved today.
arhhhhhhhh, its looking all too new for me at the moment – :blink: :silly: :ohmy:
Doc, I just had a look at your blog post 😆 what a beaut helper you have…and from my experience with the humankind much preferably.
Yeah its what I thought – I watched the plumber doing it and he even wanted to replace the perfectly good tap…so it was hard enough saying I just needed the washer replaced and couldn’t do it myself because of a hand injury.
Whilst I watched him I was amazed after he drilled the section that he wrapped the tape around – I queried it and he…[Read more]
Its crazy to think that not that long ago the govt was on a path of wilful destruction to build dams without regard for fragile eco-systems…and now Brisbane dams are over 100% and the water has to be released!!:rip:

MRSA and VRE are now common in the community and general public, even people that have never been to a hospital. Many people are colonised with it and are not sick or ill or showing any signs of it. It only becomes a risk in the situations I mentioned above.
What I forgot to mention is that when self-administering and using antibiotics that have…[Read more]
What’s the difference between me taking the antibiotics out of my cupboard, or going to my doctor who has never once refused to give me antibiotics?
“a Doctor has never refused to give me antibiotics”
this implies YOU go to the Doctor and ASK for antibiotics. This is part of the problem. I’d try and find another Doctor…[Read more]
The reason why it is often lethal to go to hospital is the past indiscriminate use of antibiotics with the development of rampant multi-resistant staphs, vancomycin resistant enterococci,..etc etc etc etc
Even on an individual level, it can leave you at a compromised condition in the future due to allowing bugs not treated completely or treated…[Read more]
