Are the sprinkler heads attached to the underside of the supply line? The proper way to design this system would be to have the sprinkler attach to the top of the supply line instead of the bottom. With the sprinkler heads attached above the supply line, the most excess water that would be drained is the water in the short pipe above the sprinkler head.


Yes, RO can remove most of the fuoride (according to the mfg specs on my system). Distillation will also remove just about everything -- in either case, you should weigh the benefits of these systems (costly!) vs using a water cooler for drinking water. Deionizers and activated alumina are more obscure filtration systems that you can look into as well.


Maybe. Generally, the number and size of the downspouts is sized to handle a certain water volume. So if two downspouts were installed, then they probably can't handle just two. Also, the gutters have to be pitched at down 1/2 inch for every 10 feet. If your facia board isn't tall enough to handle that slope for the entire length, then you need two ...


Copper work hardens, so every time you move that line it will become stiffer and more prone to kinking. A replacement copper tube will be "dead soft" and easier to work with. If you have the fridge back where you want it and the kinks have not produced a sharp spot (a flat is okay) then you're fine. You might want to buy a replacement to have on hand if ...


That sounds like an overly complicated setup with far more pumps than it should need. Or else you said pump when you meant tank in two places, actually, re-reading it. In short, you can have as many pressure tanks as you like. Locating them closer to the point of use (the house) would be helpful, to a limited extent. That limited extent is the "effective ...


According to this document from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), distillation and reverse osmosis are both effective at lowering the fluoride level of drinking water to below 4 mg/L. How will fluoride be removed from my drinking water? The following treatment method(s) have proven to be effective for removing fluoride to below 4.0 mg/L or ...
