Call the concrete plant for the specs. check for the freeze depth in your city and bury it atleast a foot deeper then the freeze depth. when i install septic and grease traps we over excavate atleast a foot to a foot and half and bring in pea gravel to make up the distance. the pea gravel tends to not settle as much.

Rain puddles on my lanai


it is almost impossible to get concrete so level that water will not sit in small puddles after it sets
depending on the depth of the puddles you could top the concrete with an epoxy resin finish all over
if the low spots are small in size , maybe finishing with large tiles will be an answer
there are professional concrete surface finishers that can advise on the problem

HOW DO YOU CONVERT 185 EUROS PER CUBIC METER INTO SQUARE METER


That all depends on the depth or thickness of the area you want to cover say for example the area you want to cover is 100mm deep you would get 10 square meters covered by 1 cubic meter but the square meters be is all dependent on the depth of coverage required less than 100mm means more square meters thicker coverage is less square meters from the same cubic meter

Northern Tool 10" compound miter saw. How do I change the blade?


remove the power cord from the socket in the wall first
if there is a small hole in the blade , place a phillips screw driver in that hole and turn until the driver is locked against the depth guard
use the correct size spanner /socket and undo the spindle nut holding the blade on
if there is no hole ,then place the screw driver in the teeth of the blade to lock it

the motor will spin so that the teeth cut against the direction of cut ( up into the guard or up through the depth guard ( blades normally have a arrow for rotation direction)
tighten the spindle nut and if no hole in the blade use a hammer and hit the spanner with a hard rap

Can a Grundfos pump fail, letting water out of a cistern?


Glad you got it fixed. Hope you didn't lose all your water in the process, we've been that way at times with our little system (can only afford 450 gal of storage with 650 gal transporter, no well).

Watch those strains on the pipes and make sure any further changes have good one way flow valves for this type system, expense doesn't look so bad when the alternative is being waterless!

Dayton SB36 wall mount question


Only you have the answer. Is there enough adjustment if you mounted on your wall specs? If not absolutely no!!!!! To support the weight, you must be in the stud.

But a question. Is this an interior or exterior wall. If you house is made of concrete block, the exterior wall only has 1x2 studs. The interior studs are usually framed by 2x4 (1.5x 3.5 in reality). Some houses use aluminum studes which I personally would not use.

If you are on an exterior wall, you couldn't use wood screws anyway. I would suggest using the appropriate TapCon. A screw made for concrete. An appropriate lenght might be 2 1/2 to 3 inches. This depends on sheetrock (1/2 or 3/4 inch) the depth of the bracket (you need to measure). To find the sheetrock depth simply take the cover off an AC receptacle. See if you some how measure the entire distance to the actual outside wall (stick a skewer along side the box till you make contact). Add 1 1/2" for the concrete, whatever your bracket depth is (at the point were screws go) and viola, you have the proper length of the screw. To size the screw, use the larget that your bracket can take (usually a #10 or 12). Definately pre-drill using the right size bit.

Hope this helps.
