Question about Plumbing

1 Answer

Office chair makes grinding noise when I sit down or get up.

There is a piston like thing in the support of my chair that raises and lowers my chair as I sit or stand.

I had a squeak when I would rock back and forth, so I used some shredder oil (which consists of mineral and soybean oils). This ran down the "trunk" of the chair and got into the "piston" and now it is not gliding smoothly anymore and making a bad noise when I get up or sit down. Did I ruin my chair? My co-workers can hear the noise! Please help!

I need to clean the rain water tank from in side how i dont knew how i need some help to show me how in video


I take it you mean the radiator tank ?. I think the best thing to do is take it to a radiator repair shop where it can be reversed flushed cleaned and flow tested . Some times the core must be replaced.

How to wire a septic pump?


You are asking your question in the problems with websites forum.
You might want to try "Home & Garden." To the best of my knowledge, you point the mouse at the "fixya" logo above left and see a drop-down listing of categories, move the mouse over this menu and click on the appropriate category.

I really shouldn't have advised the user whose title had to do with YouTube and the question had to do with automotive, and I advised he delete and reinstall his software..... I need to go back and revisit that one! :)

Open water tank


Couple things you can try to help free it up. A nice strike with a hammer can cause vibrations to help break it loose or you could try applying heat, I usually use a mep torch. The heat lets metal expand slightly which helps to break up any buildup. Best trick is to not give it constant pressure, rather sharp taps. It it feels like your about to break it, you're probably right.
