Question about Fire Stone 15 X 25 Epdm Pond Liner

1 Answer

I was doing a water change out and forgot to close the outlet valve. My pond was nearly drained and my EPDM liner lifted as if there was trapped air under it. I refilled the pond as much as I could (higher than the normal level) and the liner still is puffed up around the edges of the pond. How do I get it to lie down against the walls of the pond again?

What type of roof ? EPDM or TPO

My preference is PVC but TPO would be my second choice. EPDM is old school, more expensive not as good. All need good drainage add drains to eliminate any ponding areas.

Change thermostat

Hi, you have to follow the instruction below to remove and replace the thermostat....
  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal with a socket wrench. Always use a socket wrench or close-ended wrench on the battery connector so you don't ruin the head of the bolt.
  • Drain antifreeze from the cooling system. The simplest way to do this is to have the vehicle on jack stands. Open the radiator cap to relieve pressure -- make sure the engine is cool before you do this. Use a bucket or pan to catch coolant under the radiator. Open the radiator drain on the bottom of the radiator with pliers or by hand. The 3.1L engine has an air bleed valve on the throttle body which you should open two turns.
  • Remove the drain plugs located on the underside of the block just above the oil pan and let the coolant drain into your pan or bucket. Close all the drain plugs.
  • Unbolt the the water outlet from the thermostat, if your Cutlass has a four-cylinder engine. All other models have the water outlet on the intake manifold. Remove the outlet and the thermostat. If your Cutlass has cruise control, remove the vacuum modulator bracket from the thermostat housing.

  • Use the scraper tool to clean the surfaces where the thermostat and engine block meet. Apply a bead of RTV in the water outlet groove.
  • Put your new thermostat in place on the housing. Make sure the side with the spring goes towards the engine. Tighten the thermostat bolts with the torque wrench to the specifications provided. Remember that tightening specifications for the mounting bolts vary between parts manufacturers. If your engine has an air bleed valve near the throttle body, close that too.
  • Check that you have closed and tightened the radiator drain and the two drain plugs near the oil pan. Pour the coolant back into the radiator, adding extra coolant if necessary to fill to the base of the radiator neck. Fill the radiator overflow tank to the "FILL" mark with coolant.
  • Leave the radiator cap off, start and idle the engine. The coolant level visible in the radiator should drop slightly. Fill it back up to the base of the radiator neck. Put the radiator cap back on and make sure the arrow on the cap points towards the overflow tank. With the engine still idling, squeeze the outlet hose with your hand. The outlet hose is the big one that connects to the top of the radiator. If you feel it getting hot, this tells you the thermostat has opened up and is functioning properly.
  • Turn off the engine. Check for leaks on hose fittings and around the drains. Check that the hoses all appear sound and that none are leaking or cracked.

I have a Rheem Steller natural gas hot water service. There is a continuous dribble of water from the pressure valve overflow, even when the heater is not heating. I have tried easing the valve a few...

Yes, Turn the knob on the gas valve to off. Turn off the incoming water line into the water heater. If you have a valve on the outlet turn it off too. Open the drain at the bottom of the heater to drain a little water from heater. You can then lift the lever on the temperature/pressusre relief valve to let a little air in to release the vacuum and let the tank drain. If the relief is in the side let it drain a bit longer so the water level is below the outlet. Be sure to re-install the down pipe on the relief valve on the new valve. You should drain the a few gallons of water at least once a year from your heater, and you should exercise your temperature relief valve once a year to be sure it will function. If your new valve leaks suspect your temperature control allowing the water to get too hot.

Oil is comming through outlet air in GA 160 Compressor

Does this compressor have a water trap? sounds like the condensate needs drained.
It is normal for all compressors to need drained now and then. Almost always there is a little oil in the water on compressors that have an oil lube system. If the water/oil isn't drained and it gets full to the oulet pipe so it is really coming out then you would have a big mess.
Look for a drain valve near the bottom of the tank. Usually the very bottom.

Leak in formed pond

It worked for one season on mine. As the crack got older it became longer and wider. Mine was due to not sinking the pond all the way into the ground which caused stress from the weight of the water causing it to crack more. The second season I used a water epoxy putty I bought at home depot in the glue dept. It is greenish blue and turns white after mixing and can be used underwater if necessary. I filled the gap and then placed the repair liner like you are showing over the top and sealed the edges with a black waterproof silicone. This also worked for a season. Now the crack is even larger and wider and nothing I am doing this year is holding! I can't seem to find one the same size and shape or I would replace it. My next attempt is going to be a plastic welding kit, but I haven't tried it yet. Good luck.

Probably a plugged up filter screen in the gas tank petcock (gas valve). Drain the gas then remove the petcock and clean the wire mesh filter. Your bike is getting old and rust accumulates in the tank. You may want to get a liquid tank liner to lock the rust in place and so the tank won't rust anymore. Install an in-line fuel filter as well. A site for the tank liner is below.

Google kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to www.

Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

My pond is loosing water. I think there might be a small hole in the liner,but Ido not know where. Is there a seelant that I can get

There is sealing options once you discover the hole or tear. Allow pond to drain down to it's stable level and investigate. The liner material will dictate what your repair options are. Firestone Pond Liner or Pond King EPDM liner can be best sealed with a piece of "cover" tape - a single sided heavy repair option that bonds very well. Clean with a epdm solvent first or Coleman fuel if you can't find that. The solvent makes EPDM very tacky (wear gloves) application is much like fixing a bicycle tube.

Question before purchase (existing pond)

You don't need a bulkhead if your liner is EPDM. You can use a boot that is attached with adhesive that will seal you pvc piping. I don' t see a problem with dirty water going thru the pump before the filters. for some diagrams of settling tank installations see:
