    Like I said, grab one off the curb for free and replace the pellets in the fiberglass tube. They can only be recharged so many times, then they lose their ability to trade ions to drop out the calcium. 99 percent of the time, that's all they need, but while you are at it, soak the valves in vinegar and get new orings. Tada, 100 dollar water softener that will last you 10 plus years, especially if you just change the media when it stops working right. Here's the stuff on Amazon, you might need 2 depending on the size. You might find it cheaper too, this was what I found in 1 min. https://www.amazon.com/ABCwaters-SOFRES1-softening-replacement-softener/dp/B004NERD5E

    Maybe it'll work, dunno. If it even works a little it's that less salt you gotta buy. But I'm gonna put my money on it not working. :(

    He's thinking it doesn't work, and I hate to admit it, I'm having a hard time seeing it too. But I've been wrong before, and one of those would be awesome if they work. If not, grab a water softener, because those do work. A neat trick btw, get one that someone is throwing out, and then swap out the slop inside with new stuff. That's what goes bad on them, but people often just buy a new one because they are scared to work on them. Report back after a year or so and let us know about it. Bob and I both do industrial piping for hire, and if that thing actually worked we would have seen one on a cooling tower or something. They would tolerate a far more elaborate system in the industrial world, but they just flat out don't exist. I've worked in water treatment plants as well, nada. Btw limescale is desirable in potable water pipes, that's how lead pipes were used and were safe. Without that buildup tho, they become bad news.

    Well played sir, well played :lol: So basically you undermine the cog of a snap cut, not worrying about the Dutchman? Yeah that seems much easier if that's it. Always learning something here :rockon:

    Tree09 replied to a thread Roll off truck bodies in Gear Forum
    I would give a hard look into a roustabout bed (oilfield). Does the same thing but doesn't require specially made dumpsters, you can build a simple skid. You can also add gin poles to lift stuff. And you get can one for a one ton. I'm building a skeleton one for my 3/4 ton, do I can switch between pipeline, trees, hauling water, and generic truck tasks. I started a thread on it, but then the wife got really pregnant and I had to stop. Was planning on building it now, but got called back to work. I'll be starting out again soon tho. Messed up thing is, you can probably get one built cheaper than they want for those mini rolloffs, and you could easily make it lighter, so you could haul more.

    Developed how it could be mass produced and made stronger. Before that they knew about it, but it hadn't been developed for widespread use.

    I used to drink a bunch, and sometimes I would go out right after work with the guys for a couple. Sometimes those coupe would turn into "hey let's just keep drinking all night". I was single most of the time, and so hitting on every girl in the bar came with the territory. Over time I noticed that my success rate while filthy and wearing bibs was far higher than when I cleaned up nice. I'm not sure what that says about me, but.... :lol:

    The usda agricultural lab is here in Peoria, the same one that developed penicillin. Yup that penicillin. They have been working on using biodegradable plastic made from crops. It's on their website, and I'm sure I don't understand any of it, but that would be an awesome development for plastic goods in general.
