  1. Urine has high levels concentrations of nitrogen, Too much nitrogen can turn the grass brown (Nitrogen burn). Hence the brown patches of grass seen on the towpath, parks, fields and lawns. https://www.popularmechanics.com/home/lawn-garden/a27354/urinate-on-lawn/
  2. You may wish to change the pump cut-in and cut-out settings.
  3. Or the commet from the childern on a hot day "Mummy that man smells of Poo"
  4. No gauge fitted, Just average useage, 1.5 hours per day x 365 x 20 = 10950 hours.
  5. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  6. You find misting the area first will help the foam expand and cure faster. Be careful, though; you want to dampen the area, not wet it. The can also needs to be warm (15 to 20 degrees). if cold the foam will expand very little and not cure properly.
  7. I have yet to find a boat water pump with a decent pressure switch. My Par-Max 4's both switches failed within 18 months, that was 20 years ago since then with external pressure switches the pumps have run without problem (11000 hours). Many water pumps have been replaced by boat yards when the pressure switch failed rather then install external pressure switch. More profit to be made, mark up on a pump is far higher then a replacment pressure switch.
  8. At this time of year, you may find yourself shooting passed Denver and ending up in Kings Lynn as others have done before. EA will descharging flood water from the Welney Washes into the New Bedford on a falling tide. Unless you intend to punch the tide going downstream, with the tide flowing in at 4 to 5 knots, you be luckly to make 2 knots with the engine flatout.
  9. Just use a 500mm length of 150mm stainless steel flue, Only £20.99 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stainless-Steel-Chimney-Flue-Liner-Rigid-Pipe-Multi-Fuel-Stoves-Ø8-25cm-L-50-cm/152541265471?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=451919737873&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 LimeKiln moved to Stourport Basin nearly ten ago and are still trading.
  10. I do own one of the very first units of this model (1999) and has given 20 years of service without a problem. The requirement for DC grounding of the unit in some locations is in the US regs. My own was installed using the diagram suppied by Merlin Equipment. The RCD works without the requirment for the unit to be grounded. You need a 175amp circuit breaker or fuse in the DC cable. You can remote the panel using a RJ 10 cable.
  11. She did not, the figuire is a combined moorings and Licence fee, She also on the agenda 21 moorings. So the total mooring fees for the last three years would be about £5650.
  12. Your biggist shock will be your electric bill,
  13. Many of the cars round the Fens run on foreign plates anyway. As for the Police spotting VED discrepancy, What Police, seeing one nowadays is a rare sight. ANPR cameras tend to be found only in citys and on motorways.
