There is often more than one way to deal with a water treatment problem. The discussion in this thread makes that point quite clear. Even when the chosen treatment method is chlorination there is more than one way to chlorinate. Gary Slusser is a strong proponent of inline pellet erosion feeders to chlorinate. While I have posted information that, in my view, undercuts two of the advantages that Gary cites for pellet systems I agree with him that they work and that they have some advantages over solution feeders.
I believe that solution feeders also have some advantages over pellet systems and on balance are preferable. However that is my opinion--it is not a fact any more than Gary's belief that pellet systems are preferable is a fact.
What I have said is that in a discussion of the cost of an inline erosin pellet feeder as compared to the cost of a solution feeder that it is not necessary to consider the retention tank--because it is common to both systems.
I guess someone did by deleting posts and banning the offenders and probably for the reasons you were thinking of when you mentioned that.
It could also be because those folks were previously banned here under other names and decided to do the same stuff that they were banned for previously; actually a number of times previously. Over the last 9-10 months.
IMO I suspect they were welcome here until they reverted to their old ways again, and I suspect some will be back again. And POOF! gone again if they revert to their old ways.
What was it that someone smarter than me said about repeating your previous failed attempts at something and expecting a different result? It was kinda like being stuck on stupid wasn't it? I guess you're right and stupid IS forever...
I just don't understand all the arguing. NOBODY is going to change anybody's mind. When someone has a strong opinion, they usually stick with it no matter how compelling the argument on the other side is. It's a lot like arguing politics with liberals. It's a waste of time because they never address the issue, only their "feelings" Solution feeders, pellet feeders, either way the pro's and con's have been tossed out there and now it's up to the consumer to decide. Yes I think Cass should have shut the thread down a long time ago because there is nothing new being added and what has ensued since the first few posts has pretty much been a waste of time. It's kind of too bad there is not a forum for arguing, abusing and belittling each other. I'm sure it would be a big hit
