Do you have a pressure regulator on your system? I see it suggested to lower the pressure down to 25 PSI or so. It makes sense that it might be desirable with high supply line pressure.

Better get some golf in before the weather turns hot.
No pressure regulator being used here. I just open or wind down the spray nozzles and spigot. I wouldn't know how to gage 25 PSI.

Another 9 holes today - some bits of brilliance and more than a few bits of ARRRGHHHH!


Just got the new water timer and moisture sensors delivered today. Not bad - 2 days delivery from Amazon. Can't wait to try it after the monsoon rains tomorrow.

Rain today??? We have actually gone a little on the dry side. With the humidity we are having when it does rain I bet it pours.

All my stuff is here but not yet connected. Maybe I will set it up this weekend.

Had a small bump in the road with the vinyl tips for the cut wire on the new cage build. I relied on a website for size info and the site was wrong. Second time I got out the calipers and counted the mm for myself .5 mm at a time.

Rained pretty heavy late Saturday afternoon. I was driving at the time, and a little concerned about hydroplaning with the amount of heavy rains. But after getting home, I'm impressed with the wax finish the car has. Water was beading up like crazy. A local car wash has the best wash/wax/tire clean/soft water rinse I've ever had.

Raptors beat the Bucks in game 6 to take the series, and are in the NBA finals - first time in team history.

No fun here yesterday. Got up to a warm Fridge. Fortunately I knew where to start fixing it and all it needed was a full manual defrost of the evap coils to get it all working again. I am seriously not impressed with the Samsung control board / software.

We had a GE - the board lasted about 5 years as we were getting some temp flux. Installer guy said that can happen with the boards, and for about $200, we extended the life of that appliance for 2 more years when it was time to replace all of them (dishwasher, fridge and stove).

Well it sure isn't like the old days when a Fridge ran for 20 years with maybe a defrost timer replacement.

This thing isn't that old, maybe 7 years.

The wife may be to blame for overloading and blocking the air vents. Last time, 3 years ago, it was me who put something in and did not notice the door was slightly. ajar

I noticed a kind of weird noise emanating from the new fridge every once in a while - even called the repair guy to get an idea of anything that might be wrong before they were dispatched to the house. Someone (maybe me) moved the "ice making" arm in the bottom freezer compartment, into the "on" position by accident. Not a bad thing if it was hooked up with a water line - which it isn't. I checked the ice maker arm - moved it back to the "off" position and noise resolved.

You don't like ice makers? or second Fridge?

If I had to remember to fill ice trays or buy ice I would never have any.

I guess your markets are open today. US closed.

It's an odd situation. Our water, while safe to drink etc, is hard (although I use a water softener system to make it better for the washing machine, dishes and showers), but it also has an odd taste to it I, and most others in town, do not like. So, I'd not use ice from the tap for any beverages.

I've taken to a Brita Filter jug for drinking and adding to the Soda Stream for soda water, and like how it filters the water hardness and most of the odd taste. Now, if I can only get a line from the Brita, to the ice maker in the fridge....

Isn't the Brita mostly just a charcoal filter? A simple in line water filter on the icemaker line can filter anything you want depending on how much you want to spend. Here' one suggestion to get you started: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Brita-Re...101/204644602s

Our water is hard and the Fridge has a built in filter for taste and odor that I change about half as often as suggested.

Don't really need ice cubes. Maybe a couple times a year. It's just some other appliance or part thereof that will break and will need service or the lines will break or leak and that's not going to happen.

Haven't had any pets in nearly 25 years. The last year with them (two cat's I loved dearly) was really tough, and I didn't do well with the endings, so we've not had another since. I don't see that changing since we're going to do at least some travel in the coming years.

Well this did not end so well either and like you I think I'm done.

I reserve the right to change my mind at a later date. He wasn't well for the last year and it was hard to watch.

The markets. Another down day so far. I don't want to get into it.

We get a little more rain today, then it looks like a patch of good weather for the next 14 days or so. There's still the odd rain day in there, it's still cooler than normal, and I know beyond 5 days or so, the guessing becomes evident, but for us at least, it looks like it's finally going to warm up.

That said, the weather office's summer forecast isn't great for us. Not as warm, more precip than normal, so I need to get way next winter for sure!!

The markets were terrible to me the last 2 days. Hive now erased all gains since early March.

We actually needed some rain for the lawn and got more than enough with more on the way and a return to more normal temperatures.

On the brighter side my new style container tomato cage remained upright and steady during yesterdays winds. The real test will be thoat July thunderstorm when the vines are longer and laden with fruit.

I don't even want to look at the damage from the markets tanking yesterday. I'll just get mad at what's going on in the world. I can just see our FA - don't worry, it'll recover. There are peaks and valleys. All will be good. I wonder if that was the advice they gave in 2007-8?

Our outlook for weather is cool and more precip than normal. Makes it kind of hard to plan outdoor activities.

We're only growing some herbs and kale this year. So far I've only had to use the irrigation system once or twice. Today is warm, but cloudy. Tomorrow is full sun but cool. Will need to get the flower pots watered then.

Heading to the practice range today. Gotta straighten out my tee shots.
