    HVAC furnace blower fan capacitor question(s)

    Understood. If I can get through the summer I'll be happy. New system not in the budget for the remainder of this year. Not something I would be doing myself. Was told roughly $8-$10K for new furnace/AC set-up. Will have to do my homework first.

    HVAC furnace blower fan capacitor question(s)

    Service tech just finished. System was 4 lbs low. Evap. core was freezing up blocking air flow. Yes, the R22 was very pricey but the system is 25 years old now and other than cleaning the filter and the capacitor I just replaced I've never had any issues. Rolling the dice for a few more...

    HVAC furnace blower fan capacitor question(s)

    Thanks for the reply. Update on issue: Last night I noticed the blower was working but the air flow out the registers was almost non-existent (earlier last night the air flow was fine). Air blowing hard out between top of furnace and base of where evap. housing is. I shut off the A/C and just...

    HVAC furnace blower fan capacitor question(s)

    John, no I have not. I put the existing capacitor back in after testing and it's working now. Fan motor runs fine, no noises or binding. I have a decent VOM but am not familiar with the test procedure for the fan. If it is not overly complicated and you care to share or point me where to find...

    HVAC furnace blower fan capacitor question(s)

    Hello all. A few weeks ago I noticed the blower fan on my furnace was not running but the compressor was running outside and air was cold at furnace. I tested the capacitor for the blower fan and it was way out of spec. so I replaced it and everything was fine. The one I replaced was original...

    Water not soft, what to check next?

    Thanks for the input. I guess I will check the resin first to see if deteriorated per the links you provided.

    Water not soft, what to check next?

    Hi all. Looking for some guidance on what to do next. I am an avid DIY'er but almost zero water softener knowledge (but eager to learn!). System/background: Culligan Medalist. new in 2005. We bought the house in 2010. Other than clean out the salt tank a few times and replace a seal on the...

    Water not soft. How do I know resin still good? Culligan Medalist.

    Hi all. I have a Culligan Medalist softener that came with the house when we purchased it about 8 years ago. The system was new in 2005. I noticed lately that the water is no longer soft. Over the years I have only had to add salt and I cleaned out the salt tank a few times. I would prefer not...

    Question regarding testing treated water

    I forgot to mention, the Culligan manual stated to refill the salt tank with 4" to 6" of water after a full clean-out (before refilling with salt). I added about 10" and Gary indicated that was insufficient. I wonder why Culligan shorts it. Are they trying to generate sevice calls? ......just...

    Question regarding testing treated water

    Regen 2X Gary, I did the back to back regenerations as you suggested. A day or two later I noticed the water once again has that "slick", soft feel. All seems good now. Not sure why it took a day or so to feel the difference. I thought for sure we used enough water the first day to clear out...

    Question regarding testing treated water

    I just found this info at a water testing site: "To make a conversion from parts per million to grains per gallon, you simply divide the parts per million by 17.1 to convert to grains per gallon. Thus... milligrams per liter or parts per million = grains per gallon 17.1" If...

    Question regarding testing treated water

    I did add approx. 10" of water to the salt tank prior to refilling per the Culligan manual. Is the 2x regen still necessary? I retested the water by increasing the sample size 4x. It took 2 drops to change to green (not blue as stated before). That would put me roughly at 8 gpg. Gary...

    Question regarding testing treated water

    DonL, here's the instructions from the test kit. I just counted the drops until color change and read the charts. It's just a range. I read that this type of test was more accurate than the test strips. - TSPORT :cool:

    Weird idea to possibly help with skid marks.

    I'm almost positive Chlorox no longer makes the "Toilet Bowl liquid cleaner with Teflon".

    Question regarding testing treated water

    Hi all. I wanted to verify that my water softener is effectively softening my water. I am not getting that slippery feel when washing hands/showering like I used to. Not sure if I am just getting used to it or if there is a problem. I purchased a kit to test the general hardness (GH) and...

    Toto Soft Close Repair?

    Ever see the movie "The Blob" (the original with Steve McQueen)? Maybe a little piece of The Blob slipped out of the net when that helicopter was hauling it away after they froze it. The piece regenerated into a huge mass but had a change of heart and decided to be useful to the world instead of...
