A septic system is something that is easily forgotten until something goes horribly wrong. What should you avoid running down your kitchen sink? Is one type of toilet paper safer to use than another? How often does your septic tank really need to be cleaned? These were just some of the questions that I had about my septic tank after it had backed up and filled my yard with raw sewage. Since then, I have spent hours researching septic systems so that I would not have to go through that again. I have developed my website to make learning about septic systems a little easier for others like me.

If you have a business in a hot area that receives a great deal of sun all year round, then you may notice that your rubber roof absorbs a great deal of this heat. Flat rubber roofs are generally made out of EPDM materials that are created with ingredients that include ethylene, propylene, and diene monomer. The rubber roofing material is naturally black in color. This coloring is what contributes to thermal absorption. Luckily, you can reduce the amount of heat that the roof absorbs by adding a coating over the surface of it.

Capacitor discharge stud welding is a fast and efficient process that melts the base of the stud and the surface or material to which you are welding the stud. As soon as both of these metals melt, the welding gun pushes the stud into the surface. Then, the molten metal quickly solidifies, and it creates a permanent bond. This process takes milliseconds to complete, which is why it requires great accuracy.
