Usually would but I am a poor man right now and I still want to fix up the crib. Stand by for tomorrow if I regret my decision or not.

 

 

I'm not mad at you, I fully understand. It's through a history of thinking I could do it myself that I've come to terms with the fact that I don't fuck with plumbing.

i got a 4 stage. Dunno what it means tbh. The hole in my sink now is where I’ll be putting the faucet. It’s only in my kitchen. I’m going to try to install that part tomorrow. We’ll see how it works. Or if I fuck everything up completely.

 

I should know this.  I think 4 stage just means there is 4 membranes the water passes across as a filter medium.  Nice work on the plumbing.

My next project is dead simple.  Running a length of natural gas hose from the piping connect under my deck to where the BBQ will be living on the other side after my wife changed the furniture situation up.

Started a project today with my pops - let’s hope we get done by Labor Day. 

 

Basically removing this wall to open up the Kitchen area. Will push into my living room space and allow me to have a real dining table area.

 

The bar/counter wasn’t being used and basically was only a place to pile crap.

The new beam will run about 14 feet and will rest on the remaining wall to the right and the bit to the left of the door that juts out (cant see in picture). The wall on the right will end right at the start of where the opening is now.

 

Snapped line will be the new height, should be open enough for a nice table or island with seating/cabinets.

So basically each stage is a filtration level, RO systems normally go upto 7 stage.  So the higher the stage the more you filter the water but don't equate that to a good thing.  Because the higher the micron filter the more you filter the water, the more you filter you begin to filter out the good nutrients e.g iron, alkalinity ect.  So with that being said, with your higher stage filters you then have to put the nutrients back in the water and this is where some people really get into it.  Adding back the right nutrients that they life style and body needs.   This is where it gets interesting because some systems use uv light to kill specific bacteria and strip the water to basically nothing but pure liquid.  Whole House ROs are better all around if you are tapped in a water source with high calcium part per million as the calcium gets washed and dried in your closes which cause them to fade and break down quicker.  Plus all of your appliances and plumbing fixtures will not build up and not prematurely breakdown or replace.  

 

Now is RO water directly from your faucet better than bottled water.  Yes!  I had a salesman show up to sell me an RO years ago (wish I would have bought)  and he did his whole sales pitch hooked his adapter up to my faucet ran his water test.  Then I placed a bottle of Ozarka water on the table and had him test the water too.  Ozarka had impurities in the water but the RO didn't.  That's when I was sold but I wasn't ready to buy.  

 

Your stage 4 should be good enough, but if you feel you want more, you can always add more filters.  Or at least you should, but I don't know your system.

I was sold on the RO benefits, but at the time I wanted to look into other RO systems Tham just buying the first one introduced to me.

I put this thermostat in too. But it wouldn’t turn on. The c wire was attached too. Can’t figure that out. So I reattached my old one and it’s currently hanging so I can have ac during these 100 degree days.

I meant to say something days ago, but I really like that color combo. Classic.
