      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Water line for garden?

Recommended Posts

I live on a well/septic lot in Dayton. I want to run a dedicated underground line from my pump to my garden to have water available at all times and avoid dragging hoses all over. I need advice and input regarding a couple of things:

I was planning to use 1" polyethylene piping with six separate heads (one in each corner of the garden and one in the middle of each long side.

I would use one main valve to control flow (near the garden) and valves on each post to control each head on/off. I would have a spigot on two opposite corners for hose connections.

I am concerned about winterizing as a big air compressor is not in the plans. The planned route goes over a small hill so about 2/3's of the piping should gravity flow towards the garden. I was planning to add a cap at the end of the system to drain in autumn. How do I get the water out of the first third that drains back to the house? Full basement with pump controls in lower level.

How hard is it to connect to the existing system?

Any other ideas?

it doesnt take a gigantic compressor to drain them out. We've winterized entire houses on a pancake compressor. put a removable cap and a shutoff in the house. hook the compressor up at one of the garden spigots and blow it all back into the house, assuming there is a drain nearby, otherwise reverse and blow towards the garden. Leave the spigots in the garden open over winter.
