      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 .

Connecting a Water Softener

Recommended Posts

I recently installed a new water softener. I hooked everything up properly, no leaks, and everything seemed to be working great.

When I took a shower, and was standing in water (obviously), and touched metal I got a little buzz on my hand. Didn't hurt, but was surprising to say the least. I knew it was something with the ground.

I went to the local hardware store and bought 6 gauge copper wire and 2 clamps and connected the "in" and "out" pipes.

I am still getting a buzz in the shower.

Any Ideas?

The best idea I can come up with is to have an electrician check your system. Are your water lines properly grounded? I'm not an electrician and I don't have a code book handy but there are specifics about grounding the water.

Is your house older? Back when the common ground was hooked to plumbing pipe?

If so you should install a 6-8 ft ground rod and ground to it.The whole house should use a ground rod.

Do you have an electric water heater? It is not uncommon for one of the electric elements to foul with scale and mineral deposits and cause a ground. If your water pipes are not properly grounded you complete the circuit to earth ground when you touch something metal.

Are we sure this is connected to the water softener at all? Did it start when you plugged that in? If you unplug that do you still get it?
