You’ve made the decision to purchase a home generator. You know what you want it to power in an electrical failure. But when you read the specifications, it mentions surge watts and running watts. Now you’re stumped. Here is an explanation and more information to help you make the right choice.
Now the rest of the bike put your bike on your bike workstand or other handy item you can hang it on. Put the old hub/axle/stick in the rear end of the frame so the chain can rest on it, then using the paintbrush and the old water bottle with the degreaser clean the chain, the front and rear derailleur, chain rings and cranks, brakes and any other metal parts, try not to get it on the saddle, handlebar tape and don’t get too much on the headset and bottom bracket bearings. Also use the degreaser and paintbrush to clean under the down tube, as you’ll find any spillage form your feeding bottle will make this a very sticky place and the degreaser should shift it.
A surge watt is the burst of power an appliance uses when it starts up. It will be bigger than the watts the appliance needs to keep running. Not everything requires surge watts when it starts. For instance, light bulbs only need the wattage listed on the bulb itself to power them. Bigger items, such as a freezer, refrigerator, best pump for home use or furnace will need a boost of power when they start up.
If you find any breaks, repair, or have repaired and then re-inspect any zones the break was in. Keep in mind that dirt can enter the pipes when a break occurs, and flow to the head after repairs are done. This can cause clogged heads. The same goes for replacing sprinkler heads.
MOST IMPORTANT! Are they licensed and insured? Demand proof! And if you’re still in doubt, check with the Better Business Bureau. Ensuring your plumber or heating contractor is licensed is the most important factor! Not only is hiring an unlicensed contractor illegal well pump for house many jobs, but it also puts your home and family at risk if things do go wrong.
Rule #1 also applies to brushing your teeth. Wet the toothbrush, turn off the water, apply toothpaste, brush, and then turn it on to rinse. When our well was low on water, I used half a glass of water to brush my teeth and rinse.
To find your static well water level, here is what you’ll need. A large fishing bobber. They are normally red on bottom & white on top. (WalMart, fishing dept), you’ll need a large washer, next get some twine/string, (not too thick) say 100 ft. Now you are going fishing… so to speak.
So your bike is now clean, dry it with a clean cloth and if you want it to really shine, get the spray polish out, but don’t get any on the brake surface or you wont be able to stop the first time you go out. Next you have to oil the chain and all moving parts, brake pivot bolts, front and rear derailleur, pedal springs and the pivots on the brake levers, wipe away any spilt oil, check your gears and brakes work well, pump up your tires and away you go on your clean and sparkling bike. Oh! And remember to put back all that stuff from under the sink before you go on your bike ride or you’ll be making your own dinner when you get home.
