    Sewage

    I've just retired from working for a well known waist management company dealing with human waist, tankering from sesspits to spreading on crop fields,(yes you probably eat it) what I am seeing on the water here is not human waist but rotting vegetation and algie so much algie the water has turned a lovely green with brown patches.caused buy the heat wave we are having. All of it goes in the head of the works, either through pipes or tanker they don't sepperate blue added or not.
  6. I was born in the 50s David, I was referring to its age 70 years isn't bad with wood and metal shrinking and expanding over that period it's done pretty well.

    Sewage

    Rotting vegetation creating methane which bubbles up to surface bringing said turd looking stuff with it. Marina where I am is full of it.
  8. For someone to build a wheel with the equipment and glues they had in the 50s I'd say they had a rough idea of what they were doing. Nearly 70 years old and just a few cracks I'd say fair wear and tear.

    Lighting

    If they are labcraft lights they now do led equivalents. I got mine from there agent Dun-Bri. They may have a Dun-Bri near you if not phone labcraft and ask who stocks them closest to you. Hope it helps.
