How To Convert Vegetable Oil Into High-Grade Biodiesel Fuel


This tip will help you learn how to convert new or used vegetable oil into high-grade biodiesel fuel that can run in a standard diesel engine. Anybody can make biodiesel. It's easy, you can make it in your kitchen -- and it's better fuel than the petro-diesel the oil companies sell you. Your diesel motor will run better and last longer on your <a href="http://www.diversesolutions.org/detail/B0014FKHZ8">home-made fuel</a>, and it's much cleaner -- better for the environment and better for health.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.diversesolutions.org/detail/B0014FKHZ8">Biodiesel</a> has some clear advantages over straight vegetable oil, or SVO: <br /><br /> <ul> <li>It works in any diesel, without any conversion or modifications to the engine or the fuel system -- just put it in and go. </li> <li>It also has better cold-weather properties than SVO (but not as good as petro-diesel<a href="http://journeytoforever.org/biodiesel_vehicle.html#winter"></a>). </li> <li>Unlike SVO, it's backed by many long-term tests in many countries, including millions of miles on the road. </li></ul> Biodiesel is a clean, safe, ready-to-use, alternative fuel, whereas it's fair to say that many SVO systems are still experimental and need further development.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Instructions:<br /><br /></span> <ol> <li>Purchase a <a href="http://www.diversesolutions.org/detail/B0014FKHZ8">Biodiesel Processor</a>, such as the <a href="http://www.diversesolutions.org/detail/B0014FKHZ8">Fuelmeister II Biodiesel Processor available here.</a></li> <li>Follow the included instructions and you will be on your way to creating your own Biodiesel fuel!<br /></li></ol><br />Biodiesel is made from vegetable and animal oils and fats, or <b>triglycerides</b>. <a href="http://www.diversesolutions.org/detail/B0014FKHZ8">Biodiesel</a> cannot be made from any other kinds of oil (such as used engine oil).<br /> <br /> Chemically, triglycerides consist of three long-chain fatty acid molecules joined by a glycerine molecule. The biodiesel process uses a catalyst (lye) to break off the glycerine molecule and combine each of the three fatty-acid chains with a molecule of methanol, creating mono-alkyl esters, or Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME) -- biodiesel.

How do i test my room thermostat


Hello,
To check your thermostat you need to advance the temperature towards the setpoint slowly. You also need an acurate thermometer to see if the thermostat will turn the heat or A/C on when the setpoint is reached. Also check the make sure that the temperature on the thermostat is close to the reading on your thermostat.

Calore low profile heater that I can't get to work. The power is on to all the controls but won't heat. Can't find a instruction manual for troubleshooting. Got any ideas?


Calore model 63005 has a problem with the wiring to the heating elements being under rated, they burn out and the heater stops working. All the controls still work and it all seems ok but no heat comes out. I bought 2 of these heaters from Home Depot and both failed in the first week of operation. To fix u must have a qualified person replace the faulty wiring with 14 guage solid copper wire. This is what i did, But i do not suggest this course of action. heres what i suggest you do, first try to get a refund of your hard earned money, second take said heater, grab buy cord and smash on ground until it fits in a flat rate box from the post office and mail back to Calore with a note expressing your displeasure in them almost intentionally killing your family. I say intentionally because this product obviously has not been tested otherwise they would have found this problem and fixed if they really cared. In the worst case it has been tested and a decision was made to go ahead and market it with its problem relying on volume for profit. Anyway its just another product that demostrates that your money is more important than your safety to these companies. Dont buy any Calore products and send these companies a message that we will not tolerate such irresponsibilty.

SAFEGUARD YOUR HOME/BUSINESS WITH HONEYWELL'S WINTER WATCHMAN!


I recently discovered a great device, manufactured by Honeywell which is guaranteed to provide you with peace of mind whenever you are away from your home or business for more than a few hours. The Honeywell Winter Watchman UPC#: 085267870511, is a freeze warning alarm. Winter Watchman turns on a light alerting neighbors of a cold, low temperature condition. The model number is S483B1002 and the cost is in the $25.00 - $30.00 range.
This device plugs into a home outlet and then you plug a lamp into it. Make sure the lamp is on before you plug it into the Winter watchman. I use a lamp with a red globe and place it in the front window. Then I notify all of the helpful neighbors of my warning system so that can call me,or my designee, if they see the red light on. One of the features of the Winter Watchman is the fact that you can set the warning temperature, ten degrees below the setting on the thermostat would be a good setting in that the warning light would activate but your home wouldn't be in danger of an immediate freeze of the water pipes. OTHER modifications you might consider would be:
1. plug a spot light with a red bulb and a flasher unit into the Winter Watchman to get everyone's attention.
2. Use more that one Winter Watchman, perhaps on the other side of the house so that multiple neighbors can be alerted.

We bought a house with a hot tub and do not have the instructions to it. We have a Manatee Electric spa heater made by Tropic Air Products, Inc manuf. 4/1997 model E-11 11 KW AMPS. We would love some...


I just looked at the exploded drawing for the Manatee. It looks like a very simple heater. The heater will simply come on whenever the pump is running and the thermostat says that the tub is not hot enough. So, for the heater, set it and forget it.

The adjustment you can make is by setting the low-speed pump timer. There should be a timer on the control box, somewhere. Generally, you set the timer to come on for a couple of hours, twice a day. During those times, the pump will come on low-speed and the heater will come on as needed.
Keep in mind that the tub will only heat when the pump is running so you will want to set the timer so that the tub has been running for at least an hour when you will be ready to use it.

Most controls will also allow you to put the pump on thermostat control, usually with a switch (timer/ t-stat). By running on t-stat control, the low-speed pump and heater will turn on whenever the temperature drops a couple of degrees.

Timer control is usually more efficient for two reasons:
1. The tub doesn't heat water when you don't need it (like while you are sleeping or at work).
2. The pump isn't cycling on and off all day and night. Cycling is not very efficient.

Tip: If you want to soak when the tub isn't hot, just turn the pump on for 10 minutes or so before you get in. That is a pretty big heater, and unless you have very poor insulation or a worn-out cover, the temp shouldn't drop too fast.

Another tip: The best way to save money on a tub is to maintain your pH. Check it EVERY WEEK! Incorrect pH will shorten the life of your heater and seals. One service call would have paid for a lot of electricity.

Please feel free to post follow-up questions.

With the symptoms you have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad magnetron.

The diode is a fairly cheap fix, and the mag will cost more.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it's not shorted, it's probably okay)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
