      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 .

cabin water softener ideas

Recommended Posts

I have a seasonal cabin on Lake Miltona iron hard water smells and leaves rust color on shower sink toilet

We had rented seasonal kinetico in Alex but prices are $400 per year so we quit that a couple years ago

Any ideas to economically soften our water? We have a water cooler for drinking.

Would a water softener not last? re generate only on demand or once a week approximately.

Thanks for any ideas.

Have you tried shocking the well at the begining of the season with bleach? The chlorine oxegenates the water and the iron presipitates out. At my house I dump a gallon of chlorine bleach down the well and then about 50-100 gallons of water to mix it in. Let it sit over night and then flush the system by running a hose out to some place that won't be a problem if ketchup red water gets on it. That would last for nearly 6 months at my house. You can get detailed instructions from the UofM extension service on how to do it.

We have a little Waterboss 700 in our garage. Works really well for the price. The hardness of our water is 25 grains. I use the iron out salt from morton. The only complaint I have is even though it is set to regenerate after so many gallons and at 2:00 am it still hits a limit and will regenerate during the day. It only takes 15 - 20 minutes though. It doesn't use much for salt either. I would give it a 4 out 5 stars.

We had a similar problem at our seasonal cabin. We have the portable tanks brought in from Culligan each year. We get by with two that are hooked up together. Culligan comes out in the spring to hooks up and out in the fall. Very slick, our water is perfect. Not sure how it all works but not complaining...I want to say it's about $75/per tank, so $150 for the season. Not great, but worth it I think.

A friend was having a problem at his cabin with rust in the water and found that his air tank was the culprit. He has an old fashioned steel tank and it is rusting up over the winter and creating the mess. He flushed it a number of times and it got a bit better. You may have a similar setup if the place is older. The solution should be an air tank with a bladder but the cost of that deterred my friend.

    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?
