As the crisis between India and Pakistan that began earlier this month is showing no signs of quickly dissipating, here is a quick rundown of the main battle tank (MBT) forces of the two rivals in South Asia as a number of reports have emerged that both sides have activated and reinforced their heavy armor formations along the Line of Control and regular border.
Overtightening supply tubes, pipe and fittings and toilet bolts is one of the most frequent mistakes DIYers make. If you crank too hard on a galvanized or black pipe, coupling, tee or elbow, you risk cracking the fitting. The crack may not happen right away, but the excessive force can break the fitting weeks later, causing a flood.
However, safety was given due attention in that a CO2 monitor was installed to make [Becky] aware of any dangerous leaks. The tank is also placed on a custom scale built with load cells and an ESP8266, which allows monitoring of how much gas is left. [Becky] notes that at her rate of drinking one bottle a day, the tank should last her a full 7 years or so.
First subthread started by Clarke: Why are people arguing here? Taking a full lungful from the tank (dry, cold, etc) is not the same as the diminishing O2 over time from a leak. At about 5%, you start to get pretty foggy. You may never feel the buildup, and by the time 10% hits, you are in the damage zone. There is a lot of literature on this. See: It is one of the many gasses I need to be concerned with professionally, and I have no reason to disagree with Dr Clarke, nor should you. A reasonable question is: How to insure that, given the size of the bottle, there can not be a sufficient buildup to be a problem in the event of a leak. 2b1af7f3a8
