By the way this is an excellent place to put a green house once you get it sealed as it is generally warmer above the tanks.

With out looking at it and checking smelling around the area I would not agree that it is bad. My house built six years ago has both tanks the holding and dosing abou six inches below surface and caps just above grade. If I don't seal my dosing tank cap fill good and cover around it I can smell the septic smell. Usually the dosing tank is very close to the leach field this does not mean a leach field problem which could be roots clogging undersized and over saturated both of these you will have moisture in part of the lawn near the leach field. If the dosing tank has a problem (power or other) or the leach field is backed up the tank "water" level will rise and there should be an alarm near the electrical panel that will sound indicating a problem

I hate the smell of myrrh but I use it with frankensense and black pepper and some others for my arthritis it works great. Real Lavender helps with the smell.

I have been working on this one for a while and I have a very good working deodorant using doTERRA CPTG essential oils that can also help with other ailments PM me or email me zxylene at yahoo dot com I had arthritis and now take care of my stinky man pits and my arthritis at the same time. It is fantastic. Everybody body chemistry is differently wife uses a slightly different mixture but it helps her with her and weight loss also. You do not want to block your pores I stopped using antiperspirant deodorant about 10 years ago and started trying to find a truly safe and working natural deodorant about two years ago. I tried the salt stick and desert essence in between but while they both helped they didn't work for me.

I did not start to build a RMH yet I am still researching learning and acquiring material I want to build one as a practice temp. unit outside then build one into a garage and later one in my house or a cottage etc. I do not want to duplicate efforts and waste materials. Do we have a list of all failed ideas for materials and another list of promising Ideas?

skipping the obvious stuff like aluminum dryer duct core or reactor core for a nuclear sub.
What about thick reinforced concrete coated on the inside with some kind of high temp paint? how about a chunk of well pipe? They are pretty thick and 6". how about pottery? Or will it not be able to handle temp changes?

Also how long does a 55 gallon barrel last would the top burn out? should I get spare tops to replace every few years? maybe even a comparison of something like

55 Gallon barrel (untreated) barrel 1 - 2 years (top 1 year)
55 Gallon barrel (prepped old paint cobed off and replaced with high temp paint) barrel 3 - 4 years (top 2 years)
55 Gallon barrel (prepped as above but with special expensive high temp coating) barrel 5 - 7 years (top 4 years)

same could be done with core materials

I have a friend that is a potter can't I just go there make a core shape glaze it and throw it in to the kiln and use my finished piece of pottery as my core? Or will it not be able to handle the daily heating and cooling that would happen if I used a RMH? If that is no good what all questions should I ask him? sources of clay what the kiln is made of etc?

"Not anymore and likely less of a chance of data loss than a regular drive. They have built in clean up to even wear and usage call TRIM."


One reason is if you drop a laptop with a regular drive it is likely toast but a SSD does not have moving parts so is much more resilient. And it it called TRIM not call TRIM.

I am open to that.

It would be great to be able to custom pick and choose that sort of thing.

Do they SSDs ever get to the point where they age and start to forget stuff?

Not anymore and likely less of a chance of data loss than a regular drive. They have built in clean up to even wear and usage call TRIM. You can buy a SSD separate from the computer you get and use windows 7 system image. Control Panel>System and Security>Backup and restore>create a system image and copy your complete setup computer to your new drive. I did this for my old desktop and gave it new life on a SSD and my sons brand new Laptop to SSD. This change alone changed my boot time from about 50 secs or more to about 10 on both computers.
