      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

I think the pumps, you are using 2 pumps? The rating of the pumps determine the flowage of water,then you have to consider the temp setting of hot water & how much is being heated in the unit itself.Its all enclosed system,when you add hot tub & pool no more enclosed system.How do you plan a return flow from pool and hot tub?

Will the house and garage be split into (depending on size)multiple zones to control heat? I belive each run has a recommended maxium length for each zone.

the pool and hot tub will be heated by way of heat exchanger. im sure i will need two or more pumps. one to house and one to circulate house and other zones.the stove has a 150 gal cap.would seam there is a formula for rate of water speed to heat exchange at defferent temps. just seams hard to believe can get 200,000 btu of heat from a 1" line of 180 degree water. house, garage, pool and tub will be seperate zones feed from single header.

Best to have a pump for each zone. 1 for the house. 2nd. for the pool heater.

3rd. for the hot water heater.

You will need 3 heat exchangers, 1 water to air. If you have a forced air furnace. 2, water to water, for the pool and water heater. Most out door boilers have two

supply lines and two return lines. You need to use all four.

1in. lines are adequate. then 3/4ID pipe in the house. Pipes running to and from

the boiler MUST be in capsulated in PVC with foam insolation. They make kits

for the job.

Worst part is putting 4 pipes in a sleeve and then a sleeve in the pipe. Boring the foundation is not much ether.

Not a job I would like to start this time of year in MN.

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.
