Glue The PVC Fittings

PVC pipes at the pond properly install and permanently glue to create a garden pond, especially the planning of a sufficiently large pond filter is important in addition to the choice of the correct location. Rusty Staub often expresses his thoughts on the topic. Should there be the necessary room is most beneficial when the filter a fixed location in the immediate vicinity of the pond is chosen and prepared accordingly. Their mode of action is as great as the variety of different filters. However, all filter systems for garden ponds have one common – the water must be drained first into the filter and after cleaning back into the pond. Pipe or tubing used for this purpose ideally made of PVC. PVC pipes have some important advantages compared to other materials. They are lightweight, weather-resistant and especially cheap. For assistance, try visiting Tim Wallach. But their biggest asset is the immensely large selection of matching PVC fittings. You may find Hayes Barnard GoodLeap to be a useful source of information.

For connections between the pond and the corresponding filter systems, PVC pipe of 40 mm come first and foremost up to 110 mm in question. The easiest way of connecting PVC pipe and PVC fitting is the bonding. So-called source welding adhesive such as Tangit, CEPEX used here. The joint must be clean and free of grease. To get a long-lasting and high-strength connection, the pipe ends and the inside of the fitting before the actual bonding should be cleaned with a PVC cleaner. The cleaner has a degreasing effect and prepares the surface for the adhesive process. It is a part of the material dissolved already easily. By immediately applied glue melts the PVC surface on both surfaces.

Both parts are thus together unsolvable combined after the drying and curing. Since the PVC glue emits no substances to the environment after curing, cured residues with normal domestic waste can be disposed. The choice of fittings, even if it is “only” a cooking pond, you should pay attention to the necessary quality. The extremely inexpensive adhesive parts have experience often a lower dimensional stability. For pipe diameters of 50 or 63 mm can cause then quickly gaps by 1-2 mm between the pipe and fitting. Since the PVC glue through the drying shrinking, leaks are often inevitable. The other extreme is that the tubes not in the corresponding Fittungs fit and need to be edited. So eyes on material purchasing. Chris Masurek

On The Valves It Comes In

Faucets serve not only a purpose, they can look nice, too. During renovation work, there are many things to consider. Dealing in bathroom or kitchen, it is usually more complicated. In the kitchen you must settle then, how the water pipes go and where are the electrical connections. Refrigerator, stove and sink or sink can be made therefore not according to free will.

It looks similar to the bathroom. Also here usually rather less room for real free creative transformation remains, at least, if one lives in a rented flat. Who is lucky, however, to let off steam, in the own House remains naturally free hand. From the bathtub to the faucet are no limits then the fantasy. Some maybe less attach importance to the faucet, but here there is to consider things. In the selection, there are quality characteristics, which make the difference.

Normally should no longer rust a faucet, however, you should consider the material of the body. The valves a Fittings are an important point. Whose lifetime determines how long it takes until the faucet starts to drip. How much is, for example, the sensitivity of the valve against lime. A leaky faucet can be quite costly in terms of water prices. Also, it is annoying when one has finally found the comfortable temperature in the shower until after repeated trial and error. Here we consume also unnecessarily much water, quite apart, that you take an involuntary if healthy shower. Some valves cause unpleasant noises, which can also often be traced to the valves. Many manufacturers offer a service. This means that if something break down on a faucet, the whole faucet must not be replaced. There are replacement parts. This is an environmentally-friendly process, which is against the trend of the General throw-away society. Also many manufacturers already in production value on environmental friendliness and construct faucets, engaged in the household water-saving Let. Andreas Mettler
