      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 .

Pipe cleanout

Recommended Posts

We're in the process of installing duct work for the geo system, and my plumber/ HVAC guy mentioned that we have some waste pipes that do not have much drop to them, and subsequently, are half full of "stuff". He had to move some waste pipes to push some pipe. He mentioned an high pressure attachment that you can put on the end of a garden hose and feed it down the pipe from the kitchen sink trap to clean it out. Is there anything like that out there, and if yes, are they worth buying?

Just forget the hassle! Have em steamed by a pro with the equipment.

Then on occaisons use a bacteria that goes into the septic to produce emzimes,but put it down sinks instead of throne.

Can I do that now or is it too late (bacteria)? They said it was half full (in a 2" pipe). It drains fine right now.

If to much grease goes down a kitchen drain, yes, over time it will totally clog. Cheapest and best fix would be to replace the section of partially clogged pipe, next would be to rent a drain cleaner machine, third would be call roter router.

I'd steam it first,get all that grease out then use the bacteria 2-3 times a year.I use stuff called GreenPig in packets 1/2 down kitchen then the rest split in 2 bath sinks.Rinse it down and let it set overnight or longer without running water down if your leaving for a weekend or longer better.

My kitchen sink drain did that. Finally I just cut the galvanized out and replaced it with plastic. The old pipe was about half full of gunk and had started leaking. I added another inch or two of pitch with the new pipe and haven't trouble for several years. High pressure water attachment thing will just blow water out the vent (path of least resistance, tried it)
