LOGANSPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY Saturday Evening, June 22, 1957. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribunt Sere* NOW IS THE TIME! BETTER LIVING CHECK THESE ADS FOR IDEAS, VALUES Drips Drive You Daffy? Here's How to Fix Them Drippy faucets arc «o easy to fix that no homeowner should pat up with sleepless rights bo- cause of them, claims' the National Association of Plumbing • Contractors. Here, in a few simple steps, la hovr. the homeowner can get r. better night's sleep—and save money on his water and fuel bills at the same time. Tho first step of course, is to turn or? the water. In most modern homes, a "shut-off" »alv« for both the hot and cold water faucets is located just under the fixture where the supply line comes out of the wall. No "shut-off" valve T Then chut off the main water valve, usually located near th« water meter. Trying to take a faucet apart without turning the water oft first produces somo pretty spectacular results — and some mighty irritated housewives who have to mop up the mcssl After shutting of? the water, open the drippy faucet far enough to relieve the pressure in the supply line. The second step (Figure 1) la to loosen the "bonnet nut" by The "business end" of tht faucet is a small brass cup containing a washei which is held in place with a brass screw. Remove the screw, as show in step four (Figure 3), and replace the worn washer with on* EXACTLY the same size. Figure 1 turning It counter-clockwise with a "flat-jawed" wrench. To prevent marring the fixture, line the jaws of tho wrench with leather or adhesive tape and turn GENTLY. For step thre«, gently turn the faucet handle in tho "open" direction (Figure 2) until lh» valve item comes out. flgui« Figure-3 Finally, replace the faucet handle the same way you removed it, being careful to tighten the "bonnet nut" firmly, but not forcefully. Restore water service by opening the "shut-off" valve, then recheck the faucet. If water oozes out by the handle, try tightening the "bonriGt nut" another half turn. If that doesn't work, call your- plumbing con- tractor—tho packing is probably worn out, too. If, after replacing the washer, tho faucet still leaks, chances are that tho valve scat is worn or corroded. Resurfacing the vnlve seat is a job for the plumbing contractor. It takes special equipment—and skills— to resurface the valvo seat without permanently damaging the faucot. Of course, tho homeowner can save hiniHclf time and trouble —and the risk of damaging tho drippy faucet—by calling his local plumbing contractor in the first place. For a very slight additional charge, tho plumbing contractor will replace the washers in all the faucets in tho home and check tho valve scats at t;hc samo time. A little drip can wast* a surprising amount of water—us much as 7,500 gallons a year. If the drip is from tho hot water faucet, » substantial part of tho homeowner's fuel bill is also going down tho drain. If one faucet starts leaking, others arc auro to follow. By having all washera replaced at the samo timo by his local plumbing contractor, the. homeowner can aavo himself tho cost of additional service calU.

Under the guidance of a panel of air filtering experts addressing the Second Annual Technical Conference of the National Warm Air Heating and Air Conditioning Association, they learned that all furnace and air conditioning filters are not'the same, nor have they all been designed to do the same type of job. •Both the public and the trade have been confused by the conflicting claims pf different types of filter manufacturers as tp what their filter can do," stated Dale 0. Bender, Chief Sales Engineer, Research Prod. Corp., Madison, Wisconsin, "Filter manufacturers are honest and the filters wiil do what they claim. But a filter which is suitable for one job may not be • suited for another job." Bender stated, "For some uses high efficiencies are not required. The 'A inch thick filter placed in a window-type conditioner is not put there to remove the very small, minute impurities in the air. It is put there to coKect the lint and large impurities which might clog the cooling coil and reduce the unit's functioning ability." Filters come in a variety ot types and styles. One type is called the "impingement" type and consists of- a panel of metal baffles or fiber strands coated with oil-like adhesives. The air passes through the multiple layers of filtering material, changing direction frequently and suddenly, leaving the dust particles impinged on the coated surfaces of the filter material. The user may choose between the "replaceable" type of panel filter and the "washable" type. Replaceable type filters are intended for one using, after which they should be discarded and replaced with new filter units. Washable type filters can be cleaned, re-oiled and reused indefinitely. HERE'S HOW... MAKE AN ALL-PURPOSE WALL When remodeling, mor» Hva- bility is provided by an all- purpose wall. Doors may be of hardwood plywood, or solid The dimenilom of the project will depend on the wall area available. When this has been determined, make the frame.

The cabinet doors are %-inch hardwood plywood. Th« wall doors are made of 1 by 3-inch lumber with Vi- in the media. This results in the removal of fine dust and smoke particles." The third type of air filter signifies the advent of electronics into the field of air cleansing. It uses electronics to build up an electrostatic field. As air enters the filtering unit through an ionizing chamber the dust particles in the air stream receive a positive electrical charge which makes them eager to adhere to inch hardwood plywood panels. ™ aKes inem easei «, mm<=i B «, Allow 1/16 Inch on all sides of the negatively charged collector lt?74 lUCIItJB iritu* line wall, wjn end sub-frames 23 inches from • the wall.

Another type of filter ia that called the "charged media" type which utilizes both force, such as is used mechanical in the ' im- pingemenl" type, and electrical tween fibers are polarized by induction so that one side of the particles is positively charged and the opposite side carries an equal negative charge and they are thusly attracted to the nearest fiber of opposite charge." Bender also said, "The effect of the electrostaUc charge is to collect the particles impi Dgei small, micron-size dust that would escape the nent filtering action with- plate located in the unit George F. Landgraf, Vice President in Charge of Engineering and Research for Trion, Inc., McKees Rocks, Penn., states that " ., . . this type of precipitator can effectively remove practically all particles of air-borne contamination from the air stream." He said, "The electrostatic filter has become available" for a very practical application in anything from a dwelling place to the largest skyscraper, or from the small instrument laboratory to the largest installations in textile mills. In fact, anywhere where ventilated air is moved through •a duct, it may be effectively filtered of practically all contaminates which are not gaseous !n nature." Roll Roofing Good For Flashing Job All roofs need extra protection at points where junctions occur, such as around chimneys, ventilating stacks and in valleys formed by two slopes meeting an angle. • Flashing is used to seal such joints. An effective and easy-to- handle flashing, widely used with asphalt shingles, is mineral-surfaced roll roofing. An 18-inch-wirie strip of roll roofing is centered lengthwise in the down. On top of this 3G-inch- wide strip is placed with the mineral surface up. After this is nailed to the roof, the shingles are applied so that they cover most of the flashing and complete the sealing job.

According to Earl M. Evans, Technical Director, Ainer Glass Div., American Air Filter Co., Louisville, Kentucky, who described this type of filter, "Each little fiber in this type of filter carries a charge of varying voltages, thus creating an electrostatic field of force between adjacent and con-verging fibers. Many of the fine particles in air, particularly smoke, carry a small electrostatic charge of their own and, upon entering the field between the fibers are drawn immediate- "Gcnerally speaking, panel- j ly to a fiber of opposite polarity, type filters are extremely cffec- just as one pole of a magnet at- live on lint and on impurities above 30 microns in size," said Bender.
