Answer . when you are adding new water or filling for the first time you should first add your metal out or metal preventer which ever is in your area to prevent staining,second adjust your alkalinity(sodium bicarbonate for up and acid for down) to between 80 120 ppm. Three adjust your(sodium car…bonate up and acid down) PH 7.2-7.5 24 hours after this is done you can add your Chlorine 1.0 to 5.0 ppm 3.0 being ideal in a pool.Once a week use a non-chlorine shock to keep water sparkling Kenny Kummer Brody Chemical (MORE)
What should you do if your kitchen drain is slow but does go down however it makes a kluging noise that lasts for several minutes after it does go down?
Answer . Call a plumber to snake out your kitchen drain line. Do NOT pour acid down your drain. Do it right and it will be almost good as new. (I'm an optimist)
If your drain is sticking up 11.16 off the cement floor and the top part of your drain screws into the bottom half should you pour the concrete to the top of the first piece or leave some room?
Answer . For only 11/16" I really don't think it matters. Pouring concrete flush will make it easier if you decide to cap the drain, as the right plug will sit flush with the floor.
What is wrong if your sink drain seems clogged and you used a 20 ft snake and nothing is in the pipe but if you pour two cups of water in the drain the water will not go down?
Answer . \nThe drain is clogged! The situation is either the 20' snake was not long enough to reach the clog or, another equal possibility is that the snake went through the clog then the clog re-sealed behind the snake. This is quite common with grease or sludge type clogs. How long is the pipe …before you get to a larger clear pipe? will 20" reach it? Is it just a hand snake you are using? Are you ready for a pro to take over? Trust me he will make it look easy!. Answer . either your branch line is longer than 20' and you need a longer snake or the clog is in your main line and it needs snaked (MORE)
It does NOT have to be deep seal UNLESS it is required by the local code authority when they feel there is a possibility of trap losing its seal. . They can also require to have a self primming trap
I don't know the answer but I was looking for that answer this morning and, while unsuccessful, I'm going to do it anyway. I did find you can pour sour milk on plants (roses) and old soda and beer is good for the lawn too so it's probably better than going down the drain. It will still be determine …whether it will attact any extra varmit though on rowdy Saturday nites! (MORE)
There are some chemicals that you can dump into a sink, but you should know what you're dealing with before you do. For example, if you mix vinegar and baking soda in science class, observe the reaction, then dump the products into the sink, that's fine, because the products are simply water, carbon… dioxide gas (which escapes into the air), and sodium acetate, a harmless, water-soluble salt. But certain substances like barium, cadmium, mercury, and silver, cannot be dumped into the drain because they're harmful to the environment. Strong acids and bases should also not be drained unless you neutralize them first. (MORE)
Most drain cleaners use a simple formula of lye (concentratedsodium hydroxide) in order to disrupt whatever is clogging thedrain. Other strong bases like potassium hydroxide may also beused.
I had a similar problem (although not 2 cups), use baking soda and vinegar - put baking soda about 1/4 cup down plughole the pour about 1 cup vinegar over the baking soda (this will foam - its suppose too), cover sink with a lid (i used an oven tray) and wait for about 15mins, then run hot water dow…n plug, if it doesn't clear use a plunger. It should clear after that, if not try the process again. (hope this helps, i trolled the internet to find an answer) (MORE)
I had too much mucus and literally went to Thailand to change climate because of it. There they had this medicine called N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine in many different forms right behind the counter. It was sold to smokers to relieve phlegm and this saved my life. The recommended dosage is 1000 milligrams da…ily. It is priced low at $8 for 100 capsules. See the link in the related links section for a link to a place I've ordered it from before. ------- In the US, you can buy Mucinex over the counter which works well for post nasal drip and to thin thick mucus so you can cough it up. There are many over the counter products for stuffy nose that may work for you. Ask your pharmacist for suggestions for products that will work best for your symptoms. If none of the over the counter products work for you, then see your health care professional to see if there is a prescription medicine or procedure that could be done to help your problem. (MORE)
They go down the drain or they react with the plastic and metal and could ruin the pipes.
it can eventually leach into the soil and also can drain into area waters that are used for human and or animal consumption. It causes the death of fish and fowl also. if it is a caustic or corrosive chemical it can also eat holes in your drain pipes and then you have a plumbing nightmare!
There are two different kinds: One type is lye based a highly corrosive and dangerous chemical use exactly as directed! Don't get creative it can splashback on you and cause irreparable chemical burns. The other type uses bleach as it's base. It's. A little less dangerous than lye, but again always …follow directions. Never mix two different kinds at a time, make sure the one chemical is removed by flushing thoroughly with water before employing a different chemical on the same clog . (MORE)
Rock salt helps to kill tree roots that may be growing in your sewer line.You should try flushing 2 cups a week down your toilet.
If you are passing a lot of cars and if your exceeding the speed limit more then 5 or 10mph.
Can any excess materials that are not used during a laboratory experiment may be poured down the drain?
Most of the substances used in most laboratory experiments can be safely poured down a drain. However, laboratory experiments sometimes involve corrosive substances which would damage the plumbing if poured down the drain; they can also involve chemicals which, if they were to be mixed together as t…hey are poured into the same drain, would undergo chemical reactions that might cause an explosion or a fire. And it is also possible that you are conducting experiments on highly toxic materials that would become an environmental hazard if poured down the drain. So not everything goes down the drain. You have to understand the nature of the substances that you are dealing with. Some thing go to a hazardous waste center instead, or can be neutralized in your own laboratory before you dispose of them. (MORE)
downstream of a closet bend within 8 ft for three inch pipe and 10 feet for 4 in pipe at least half the size of the drain... unless it is stack vented then it would be full size of the stack right
There are 3 types of pour cost: 1) Theoretical PC, 2) Ideal PC, and 3) Actual PC. . Theoretical cost refers to a theoretical or asking price, that you would like to get for a drink. It's the price that one would typically see on a drink menu. . Ideal cost is the PC that you would get if you sold …every ounce of liquor that was used, regardless of the selling price. . Actual cost is the actual cost of selling the drink, which but includes waste, theft, etc. . So the Pour Cost for liquor (or anything else) should be whatever the Ideal PC says it should be. (MORE)
Unused chemicals might be contaminated, and if you poured it back into the original container, you can ruin the entire contents.
You can improvise a drain cleaner by pouring baking soda down the drain (bail the sink or tub out first), then following with vinegar. Let it foam for a few minutes, then flush with hot water. Serious clogs may need Liquid Plum'r or Drano. (These are caustic, and can burn skin, so be careful. If you… use them and still need a plumber, let the plumber know you used them; nobody likes a surprise like that.) (MORE)
Acid should be poured into water, because if you pour the acid into the water, only the water would splash out and hit you, as opposed to if you pour water into acid, the acid would splash out and hit you.
Well i know that it can effect the environment. But anything you dump down a drain can effect the environment
Often liquid wastes are disposed of by pouring them down the drain What problems can be caused by this practice?
it an cause so many problems like:1) it may make water dirty 2) it may cause fishes to starve for death 3) it may cause water pollution everywhere 4) it may despoil the water that we use for bathing, washing hands and etc.
You can but you shouldn't. Liquid grease will eventually solidify. When it solidifies in your pipes, this results in a clog. Put the grease in a container (like an empty tin can) and put it in the freezer. When it solidifies, you can put it in the trash.
Well the main reason they say is to take the dirty sediment out of the pipes by flushing it. There is a article below on this called Dirty Water.
Any excess material that are not used during a laboratory experiment may be poured down the drain true or false?
False. Chemicals should be disposed of in a safe manner. Usuallydirections for disposal can be found on the box/tube/packet thatthe chemical came in. If none can be found, ask a professional(teacher, lab assistant, poison control expert) what is the properdisposal for a certain chemical. Excess mate…rials poured down thedrain may be poisonous to the environment or people, and can leakfrom the sewage system to our ground water and eventually to ourfood. (MORE)

Hazardous materials that are poured down the drain can: . damage the sewers . damage the waste water treatment facilities . contaminate drinking water supplies . impair the health and safety of sewer workers
absoloutley not it leds out to waterways like the sea and esturays and it will block your drain
gas could be coming up thru one of the traps is there a sink or tub you don't use very often? the trap will dry out after a while allowing this gas to come up just run water to keep it filled once in a while PS vinegar is organic will not harm the septic tank
DO NOT DO THIS you may be overcome by a chemical reaction with toxic fumes.
Neither. Why would you pour grease anywhere except onto absorbent material / cat litter, so that it can be safely disposed of in the garbage bin?? Get an empty can (or 2 or 3) put some litter / newspaper / paper towel / tissues (all preferably USED) in, then carefully pour in the grease. Try …to get the amount of grease proportional to the absorbency of the material, so that you end up with a fairly stiff canful. As extra insurance against getting any on the inside of your garbage bin, put it into a plastic bag, and tie off the top. There are two thoughts regarding grease in the drainage system 1- Old school is to use hot water BUT as the waste cools off down stream the grease deposits will adhere to the internal piping causing a severe reduction in flow 2- New school says use cold water when Jetting the grease will break off in chunks and flow harmlessly down stream as FOG floats 3- Personally I like using cold water to remove grease deposits then use 140 Deg. F to scour the piping to restore full flow as originally designed BUT this takes longer and cost a lot more (MORE)
depending on many situations but if its still uncured cement then take a shop vac and try to suck as much as possible out then run alot of water down it. If its cured cement then most likely you will have to cut out the pipe or trap of where the cement is. If its not alot of cement in your shower dr…ain trap and water will still flow slowly threw then you can try pouring alot of icemelt salt down the drain and it will break up the cement but takes lots of time. Very common problem Depending on how much cement went down the drain I normally use an electric snake with small chain knockers to loosen the cement from the piping walls this will NOT work on plastic system's (MORE)
You can try Drano. If it doesn't work, you may need to call a plumber.
I assume you mean the drains in Varrock. If you go to the palace entrance then head east you should see a manhole. Go down through that. If you have any other questions you should check Runescape Wiki, it has a lot of useful info and the maps can be very helpful.
Because they will be bad for the microbes that we rely on to treat sewage.
If unused chemicals are not poured back into their containers, they will be wasted. Also, they could be dangerous and should not be left lying around.
In addition to acutally driving the car, using the little features such as the lights, horn, radio, and air conditioning/heating will drain the battery of a car. Also a dead cell in the battery will cause it to run down overnight. And if something is on such as a dome light, under hood light, trunk …or glove box light. A stuck relay will also run the battery down. (MORE)
The answer to this is found in the textbook Basic Skills in GCSE English AQA A Page 125
It is most impossible to pour water down a string unless the string is not a string and is a tube. water can only go down hollow things for heaven's sake!
Let's see why. NaOH + HCl -> NaCl + H 2 O Looks to be a solution containing a disassociated salt, common table salt, and plain water. Perfectly safe to dump down the drain.
Heavy metals are metallic chemical elements that are relatively dense and is poisonous or toxic at low concentrations. Mercury, cadmium, arsenic, chromium, and thallium are examples of heavy metals. We should avoid pouring heavy metals down the drain because they contain poisonous and toxic reactant…s. These heavy metals could lead to sickness or diseases if someone were to ingest it. Some heavy metals like mercury can clog your plumbing and pollute your septic or sewer system. There are ways to safely dispose heavy metals instead of pouring them down the drain. Not following these safety precautions could cause serious problems for other people including yourself. (MORE)
why is it important not to pour things other than waste, water down the drain.
Bcoz waste water contains toxic metabolites,as the water comes from the industries etc.it contains harmful substances,if waste water is not poured down the drain it will effect the our surrounding and causes many diseases.it also contains harmful bacteria
No chemistry should be poured down the drain. It should be disposed of at the appropriate refuse site. Check you local council where.
Provided you don't fave a septic tank, there should be no problem.Bleach will kill septic bacteria though--not a good thing.
i don't really know myself, mate. But i do know to watch out for wild monkeys!
Anything that is thrown down a drain, is likely to eventually windup in rivers and lakes, or in the ocean, and may become a form ofwater pollution. Cities try to process their waste water to make itless dangerous, but that processing is limited. They certainly donot filter out everything. If you hav…e drugs, paint, or anypotentially dangerous substance to dispose of, it requires adifferent kind of disposal. Hazardous waste treatment centers existto process such things. (MORE)
External household drains are not always connected to the seweragesystem, but are designed to take rainwater only. The rain water maythen be run off into a local streams or ditches, or to a nearbysewerage farm. Also, mixing some chemicals, even when disposed ofinto the the sewerage system, could cau…se an explosion or therelease of a toxic gas. (MORE)
They could contaminate the near by water courses - ditches, streamsand rivers. The grids at the side of a house are only meant to takethe rain water coming off the roof. The toilet, bath and sink inthe house are usually on a separate sewerage system, which carrieshuman waste and detergents to sewera…ge farms for processing. Paintsusually contain inflammable solvents, that could cause an explosionin the sewer pipes. Modern medicines should be returned (wheneverpossible) to the chemist you got them from for proper (safe)disposal. (MORE)
