How to Work As a Swimming Pool Tech

In looking back at one of my past careers, it occurred to me that no one has ever seemed to write a definitive article on swimming pool maintenance from the point of view of the Pool Tech. Water chemistry is a science by itself but most people in the pool business know that there are two main chemical tests for swimming pool water and those are Chlorine level and Acidity (PH). When a pool man enters the yard he must be ready to deal with three main issues – chemicals, cleaning, and circulation. Lack of chlorine will turn the water into an algae bed. Lack of proper acidity makes the chlorine useless. Loss of circulation and lack of sunlight on the plaster surface below the water causes algae. Everything has to be in proper balance. Chemicals, cleaning, and circulation (water flowability). Walking into a yard there are many things to consider. First, this is sort of a security position because you are entering someone’s private property. After a while you learn all about their kids, their pets, their plants that must be considered delicate, and any idiosyncrasies having to do with their property and pools system. The pool removal Sydney with no use of any chemical they can assure to let go of your pool once only.

What you must carry in the yard with you to do your job is usually an extension pole, a vacuum head, a vacuum hose, a leaf net, and a wall brush. You should also have a chemical test kit handy and a pump basket wrench to use for sticky plastic lids.

I will go through the entire process as I did while I worked as a swimming pool tech, when I arrived at a swimming pool – step by step.

When you have arrived at the pool, you lay your equipment down and look at the pool. How much of a problem is it? How fast will you have to move in order to get the pool cleaned safely and get on to the next one?

Wind is the enemy of the Pool Tech. Some times of the year the pool will look fabulous and you will be able to leaf out a few small particles and brush the steps the walls, and the floor (towards the drain) down. Sometimes following high winds and/or bad rain storms you will arrive and the pool will have lawn furniture and tree limbs in it. Some have vegetation problems constantly, created by trees or sloppy landscape crew members. You will have to learn how to measure the level of clean that the customer wants. You can only do what you can in a certain amount of time allotted for each pool on your route but some times the pool is a disaster and you must run late all week until they are all back to normal at least until you leave. The following are the steps I would suggest for anyone who cleans pools for a living.

1) It is time to empty all baskets for proper circulation. That means that with some pools I need to backwash the filter before and after I vacuum. Usually though, I will arrive at the pool, empty the skimmer baskets and set them on the deck. If there is an automatic pool sweep type cleaner it is best to remove it. Until you finish.

2) Then I need to make sure the system (circulation) is turned off and then will empty the pump basket near the filter. A lot of old plastic pump basket lids stick and it is necessary to use a pump basket wrench. If the pool has an older pump, sometimes it requires priming to turn the power back on and continue circulation. A small basket or large canister will serve to prime the pump if a hose isn’t close. As I turn the pump back on, the pump basket must be full of water enough to get the system working immediately. The water will then pass through the filter and plumbing to the pool and when I look at the water circulation, I will usually get some air bubbles coming from the pool returns so that tells me it is primed and running.

3) I check the pool tile and if it is covered with debris then I take the extension pole and attach the wall brush, then brush the tile at the water level quickly once around the entire pool.

4) Then Detach the wall brush for now, attach the leaf net to the extension pole, and leaf out the surface of the water first, then I get what bigger leaves and debris I can remove from the bottom with my net.

5) Now I detach the leaf net and attach the vacuum head. The vacuum hose must be attached to the top of the vacuum head and submerged in the water with the handle of the pole sticking out resting on the edge of the pool while you stretch out your hose.

6) With some pools there is an actual vacuum port (hole in the wall) for the hose to attach to but with most pools, I have to attach the hose to the skimmer suction plumbing hole, usually located in the back portion of the skimmer under the basket area. The hose must be full of water, almost submerged as sucking air will kill the prime in the pump. Usually I suck the water through the hose until it almost reaches the end, then submerge the hose and attach it to the skimmer.

7) Now I have to return to the extension pole handle, pick it up and vacuum the bottom of the pool. In most pools I like to start with the shallow end and work towards the deep end. With smaller pools that is all that is required, with the average pool, one vacuums the shallow end, the middle from the sides, and then the shallow end from that end of the pool, traveling in a circle around the pool. Each time you push the vacuum head forwards, then turn, pull back in another row, then step to the side, push forwards, turn the head, then then pull back, then step again. After a while one can judge just how far to step to align the line in the dirt on the bottom with the width of the vacuum head. At that point you can vacuum a pool in the dark without missing anything and leaving dirt stripes in the pool. It is similar to mowing a lawn. The outside wheels of the lawn mower overlap slightly to make sure you have perfect coverage. A vacuum head is used in the same way.

8) By now the entire bottom is cleaned, the tile is clean, and the pool is free of any debris. The only thing left to clean is the dust on the walls and steps. It is time to disconnect the vacuum head, roll up my hose and reattach the wall brush. brush down the walls (from the tile down) and steps, making sure that you cover everything that vacuuming didn’t get. Brushing on the edge of skimmers, steps, and ladders is important. Always be diligent about brushing all tops and front edges of the steps as algae will start there fastest. Be careful with any area of the pool that is in shade often, as that is also a prime place where algae will start.

9) Remove your wall brush and get your equipment ready to leave the yard (rolling up hose and collecting vacuum head, wall brush, and net connected to pole) and head back to the pump and filter area.

10) Turn off the circulation and empty the pump basket again. Backwash the filter. If the filter is D.E. (diatomaceous earth) the handle will usually be in the down locked position, if it is a sand filter, it will be in the upright locked position. Put the handle in the backwash position and turn the circulation on. Let it run for about a full minute. If there is a lot of dirt coming out you will need to let it run for a couple minutes, but be careful you don’t lower the pool water level too much. Also, if there is sand coming from the backwash hose, that usually means a lateral is broken and your pool filter will need to be repaired. Turn the circulation back on and look for dirt blowback into the pool. If clear and circulation has returned, it is back in prime. If it is a D.E. filter, then need to recharge the D.E. Use a container the size of a number ten coffee to fill the filter with D.E. and pour it into the skimmer as it is running, being careful to wipe the excess off with water and your hand. Make sure the majority of the D.E. is going down and then brush the rest in with your hand. If there is a pool sweep it should be replaced now.

11) The next step when you have finished completely with back washing is the last thing you do as you are getting ready to leave. Check the chemicals. Use your chemical test kit. Usually this is two or three parts. The average pool man uses 2 parts, using OTO and Phenol Red reagents (test chemicals).

A) OTO is for acidity and Phenol red is for Chlorine level. The chlorine level should be between 2.5 and 3.0. If it is a nice light yellow it is good. Darker yellow can be up to 5.0. This isn’t harmful to people but a pool inspector for the health department will close the pool until it goes down. If it looks orange or red it is much too high and you need to add water, turn on the aerator, or add some chemical such as algaecide until the chlorine level returns to a normal level before anyone should get into the swimming pool. Most average pools only need one tablet of chlorine a week during the winter and at least two tablets a week in the summer. I am in Phoenix, Arizona where there is a lot of sun light so the chlorine dissipates more quickly than in cooler climates.

B) The Phenol Red test should be between 7.2 and 7.6. At 8.0 or higher you should add at least one quart of acid to the pool (The acid has instructions printed on it usually as to how many quarts are necessary per how many gallons of water the pool contains.)and leave the circulation running for at least an hour while you are adding it and immediately afterwards to avoid staining the plaster.

12) The last step is to check and make sure everything is good before you leave. Make sure the backwash valve is in the right position. Make sure your equipment is all together and out of the yard. If the circulation needs to run on a timer instead of constantly, it needs to be returned to timer position so it will come on when the timer is set. IF you have added acid, even if there is a timer, you need to let it run for at least an hour, most clients can be told to shut it off and back to timer mode in an hour but if no one is home, you must leave the circulation running until the timer cuts it off on the next rotation.

Leave the yard, check the gates and latches, get in the truck and go to the next pool.

How to Care For Your Pool Cue

Now that you’ve purchased your very own pool cue, and hopefully followed some of the advice from earlier articles before doing so, you’re going to want to take care of your investment. A good cue is relatively durable and forgiving, but all cues require care and a little bit of maintenance. We’re going to be talking about wood pool cues here, graphite and fiberglass sticks are virtually bulletproof and require somewhat less care. If you are into swimming pool removal Sydney it would be nice if you cleaned up after you get rid of the pool.

CASES. You are going to need a case in order to carry your new cue to the pool hall. I would think that would be obvious but yet I constantly see people coming in carrying their new cue in their hand. Come on now, you just spent your money and took the time picking out a pool cue that you love, but you can’t spring for some sort of case? Basic cases are vinyl or soft-sided material. These will protect your cue against minor drops and dings, but not much else. I highly recommend hard cases just because they offer so much protection. Some cases are tested by driving a car over them without damaging the cue inside! Your pool cue can take a lot of damage in your car, in your house, and even at your billiard hall so protect it as best as you can.

While we’re on the subject of transporting your cue – never leave your pool cue in your car, especially in the trunk! Wood is highly susceptible to temperature changes and to humidity, so avoid storing your billiard stick in your vehicle at all cost. The wood will expand and contract which could lead to warping, loose joints, and cracked points.

THE TIP. The tip of your pool cue (the part that hits the ball) is the most important part of the stick. You can shoot pool with a tree branch or a broom handle – or the most warped stick in the house, if the tip is solid and properly shaped you can play with it! No joking! Screw- on tips are a serious no-no, so don’t even go there. “Real” tips are glued on and come in a variety of hardness. Soft tips hold chalk better and are better for applying “English” but they wear out and mushroom quickly. Extremely hard tips last forever but need constant re-chalking. Some say they make for a more accurate shot as well. A medium hardness tip should be fine for most players. The tip must be able to hold chalk, so periodic scuffing is necessary. The roundness of the tip should be maintained with a shaper. Most players compare the roundness to that of a nickel, though some prefer the tightness of a “dime curve”. Shaping and scuffing too often will cause your tip to disappear quickly, so only shape and scuff when necessary. The sides of the tip should be even with the ferrule, not mushroomed out. Get yourself a scuffer/shaper and take care of that tip!

THE SHAFT. When you first purchased your pool cue the shaft was nice and smooth, and slid through your bridge hand ever-so-easily. That didn’t last long, did it? The sweat, oils, and dirt from your hand will gum up on your shaft very quickly, making it sticky and not so smooth. How do you prevent this, and how do you clean it up? First, you cannot do much to prevent this from happening aside from washing your hands often and keeping them clean and dry. Some people use powder, like baby powder, on their bridge hand and on the cue. A tiny amount of powder that has been thoroughly rubbed in to your hand is okay – it makes your skin softer, but powder should never be used as a lubricant. Wash your hands! Powder will cause your pool cue shaft to gum up more quickly, and powder ruins the felt on the pool table. Nothing looks worse or plays worse than clean green felt with white baby powder all over it because some idiot thought that they had to dump powder all over themselves in order to shoot better! It just ain’t so – so don’t do it. It is bad for your cue and bad for the table. Have some respect, huh?

Wiping the shaft of your pool cue down with a soft cloth in the course of play will limit the amount of crud that builds up on it. Not eating or drinking with your bridge hand is a good habit to get in to as well. Using a very light leather burnishing pad occasionally is a good idea. In time however, the pores in the wood of the shaft will become completely crammed full of dirt and oils and it will need a thorough cleaning. I’m going to tell you how I do it, just remember that if you screw up you could ruin your cue. Forever. The first step is to completely wipe down the shaft (not he ferrule) with a soft cloth and some rubbing alcohol. You don’t want to soak the wood with it, use just enough to clean the wood. Continue wiping with alcohol until you don’t see dirt on the cloth. The alcohol removes the dirt and oil from the wood and opens the pores of the wood. Now you want to just let it sit and dry for several hours. Now it’s time for wax! That’s right, I said wax. You need to use 100% carnauba wax for this. Car wax is fine, as long as it is 100% carnauba wax.

Just like waxing a car, apply a coat of wax with a soft cloth or applicator and let it dry to a haze. You cannot let it dry too long, just let it sit awhile and have some patience. Once the wax has dried thoroughly you’ll want to wipe it off – and immediately start working the shaft with a leather burnishing pad (or a plain piece of thick leather if you don’t have a burnisher – which you should have anyway). Wrap the leather around the shaft and stoke it up and down as fast as you can (yes, it sounds dirty). The more you rub and the faster you rub the hotter the wax will become, which allows it to work into the pores of the wood. When you are finished you will have a beautiful, smooth shaft once again – but you’re not finished just yet! You are going to need to run through all of the steps again, except for the alcohol part. Apply more wax, let it dry, rub the heck out of it, repeat until you have at least 3-4 layers of wax thoroughly worked into the wood. Now take care of the tip and go shoot some pool!

THE BUTT. The butt of your pool cue shouldn’t need much maintenance at all. Keep it clean and wipe it down with a soft cloth during and after play. Don’t hit things with it and don’t drop (or throw) it on the floor. The joints will loosen up, the wood will crack, and parts will separate if you do. Then you’ll have to buy a whole new cue.

“Dings” in the Shaft. Nothing is more annoying than working your pool cue through your bridge and feeling little “dings” in the wood. As hard as we try to take care of our pool cues these little dents always seem to show up – as if by magic. Here is a method I learned that will remove small imperfections from your pool stick’s shaft. First, you need to wipe the shaft down with rubbing alcohol just like in the paragraph on cleaning the shaft. This will open the pores of the wood. Next, find a spot where you can place the shaft where it will not roll, and where it won’t get bumped. Lay the shaft (horizontally) down with the dings that you want to remove facing up. Now, soak a very small piece of tissue with water and roll it into a ball (think miniature spitball) and place the tissue ball directly on the indented spot on the shaft. It is important that the tissue ball not be larger than the actual indent on the shaft. Let that set until it dries completely – what happens is that the wood in that one tiny area absorbs the water from the tissue and swells, bringing that spot level with the surrounding wood. In a perfect world the “ding” will have disappeared, but what usually happens is that the “ding” becomes a small “bump” – which is fine because bumps can be worked out with a burnishing pad fairly easily. Once you have all of your “dings” up to level or slightly above level it is time to wax the shaft. Follow the instructions above for the proper method to do this. Of course another way to remove dings and dents from your pool cue would be to take it to a professional, but where’s the fun in that?

NEVER USE ABRASIVES. Ever. Period. That means no sandpaper, no scouring pads, no wet/dry paper, nothing. If it was designed to remove wood than keep it far away from your pool cue! You never want to remove a layer of wood just to make it smooth – you want to clean the existing wood to maintain the shape, balance, and feel of the cue.

Your pool cue represents an investment on your part, so keeping it clean and in good condition will make it last a lifetime – now that’s a lot of pool playing!

You Can Get Good Source Of Ideas About Auto Repair In The Article Below

Learning about auto repair may seem like a daunting endeavor if you do not sure how to begin. The tips presented below will give you get started. Keep reading to discover some auto repair tips. So, one thing that you will definitely need to do is purchase a really good leather conditioner for your car protection.

This shows that a mechanic has passed a special test for competence and has more than two years of experience. This tells you that the best mechanic is qualified to work on your automobile.

Get a good battery charger and be sure it is always in your car. Learn how to find the charger with ease.

Ask all the questions you have regarding your car when bringing it in to their shop. Preventing automotive issues is a valuable skill to save money annually.

If something is not clear, talk to the mechanic first. You do not want unpleasant surprises when you go to get the final bill.

Ask mechanics if they have done work on the same make and model of vehicle before. If they have worked on the same type vehicle you have, they will probably know what must be done to help your car work again.

Keep a record of every car is fixed or maintained. If your car ends up with more problems later on, it is useful to be able to give your mechanic all such records.

Test drive your car before paying the auto repair shop.

Be aware of unscrupulous mechanics who make unnecessary repairs to your vehicle. A good mechanic should let you know if they noticed parts that are starting to get worn down and will never perform work without your full approval. Never bring your car to someone who preforms unnecessary repairs.

Don’t leave valuables in your car when it’s being repaired.Mechanics may need to take these items out to do the work and they aren’t responsible if an item is damaged or missing.You want to remove items from your trunk.

The weight of a big key chain. If your key starts sticking, install new tumblers and use a lighter key chain.

You don’t need to visit the dealer in order to get your auto repairs done. There are several reputable technicians that may be closer in proximity to your house. Find someone who you are comfortable with and reliable.

Keep in mind that DIY auto repairs can be dangerous. Always have somebody nearby to help you just in case there is an emergency. Buy quality tools that will last and not break under pressure. This holds true particularly in the case of the tools needed for things such as tire changing tools. The jack you are working on the underside of the car. This is why it is wise for you to use quality hydraulic floor jacks and jack with stands.

Avoid diagnosing your own car problems yourself.What seems like something small may actually be quite complicated, especially in the newer electric cars and also the newer computerized vehicles. Let the diagnosing. Let them know what the problem is and the noises you hear, but let them be the ones to diagnose the issue.

Some untrustworthy shops replace your original tires. They sell your tires and make a profit off of those who do not know enough to check. Mark your tires before taking your car off. If the chalk isn’t present when you get the car, you have definitely been had.

If you need to have your car fixed, but are on a tight budget, then get in touch with your vocational school’s auto repair department. You will pay a very low rate for the repairs in return for allowing students fix your car while under the supervision of a licensed mechanic.

Don’t trust any parts that a part will last you a lifetime. This is a way to grab more money from you. One example is that some vehicles say their transmission fluid.While it’s not changed as much as typical fluid, you need to be sure it’s changed about every 80,000 miles.

Bleed your brakes before you take your work is done on a test drive. Test for any leaks to ensure that no fluid can run out. You should then be ready for test drive the car safely on low-traffic roads. Start slow to ensure that your repairs were successful.

AAA is a good company to look into when you’ve got auto repair issues. You are going to find discounts on an annual AAA membership if you shop around.

Do not add water in the windshield washer fluid. Water can clean your windshield, but since the system requires that specific fluid, but that compartment is designed only to hold a special kind of fluid. Check the compartment when you can to be sure that it gets refills when it needs to be refilled. Don’t insist if the compartment to empty before refilling.

Seek second opinions prior to committing to major repairs on your car. The mechanic may be offended or offer a special price to do repairs right away, but be suspicious of this.

Do not try to repair your car unless you have experience doing it. You could end up voiding your warranty otherwise. This makes you totally responsible for all of your future repairs yourself.

Rotating your tires regularly can prevent wear and tear on tires. You need to get the tires rotated about every 6000 miles, but it may depend on the model and make of the vehicle. Get new tires to avoid too much wear and tear too quickly.

Check the amps on your fuses before attempting to replace a dead fuse. You need to remember to get fuses replaced with ones that has the same amperage. If your fuses should be replaced often, there might be something wrong with the electric systems in your car.

You have to know what your mechanic will do before you say yes to it. Ask him how much that will be.

Learning about the warning signs of impending car problems can save you money. This and the other tips can help you learn all about simple auto repair. Remember what you have learned here the next time your car starts having problems. Any good source of car leather protection, click here.

Risk Control Hierarchy Refines Electrical Safety

In the late 1880s, a young boy was electrocuted when he accidentally touched an unlabeled, energized telegraph wire. That incident ignited an inventor by the name of Harold Pitney Brown to make an impassioned plea in a New York Post editorial to limit telegraph transmissions to what he considered a safer level of 300 Volts. If you would like to make a booking with our electrician Brisbane Southside go to Emergencybrisbaneelectrician.com.au.

Perhaps Harold thought that limiting electrical transmissions to levels of 300 Volts or less would provide instant electrical safety. With over 120 years of hindsight, we view things much differently today. Yet, Harold stumbled across two important concepts. The notion of “300 Volts” is a technical discussion about the laws of electrical energy (Ohm’s Law, etc) that lends understanding to how electrical energy can kill or maim. On the other hand, the term “safe” reflects a working knowledge of the fundamental principles of safety. Our challenge is to combine our technical understanding of electricity with the principles of safety to ensure electrical safety is both practical and effective. The better we understand both concepts the greater the likelihood we will have to improve the status quo. The Risk Control Hierarchy (RCH) does an excellent job in blending these two key concepts.

Risk Control Hierarchy

The heartbeat of safety is the Risk Control Hierarchy (RCH), which is found in Appendix G of the ANSI Z10 Standard. The RCH helps us prioritize safety initiatives from least effective to most effective. For example, will you be safer wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle or by selling it altogether? Obviously, selling the motorcycle eliminates the risk of an accident, while wearing a helmet offers protection to your head from the risk of a head injury during an accident. The RCH works by helping us rank risk reduction measures from most effective to least effective as per below:

1.) Eliminating the risk.
2.) Substituting a lesser risk.
3.) Engineering around risk.
4.) Awareness of every risk.
5.) Administrate and regulate behavior around risk.
6.) Protect workers while exposed to risk.

Note that each step above is equally important, yet not equally effective in protecting workers. Eliminating a risk is the most effective way to keep workers safe while protection from a risk by using Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) is least effective. There have been great improvements in the design of PPE, but its primary purpose is keeping workers alive – not 100% safe.

Safety and Risk

Risk, which is defined as exposure to a hazard, is two-pronged. There is the probability of exposure and severity of potential injury. For example, a 120V outlet is a greater risk than a 13.8KV switchgear line-up because more people are exposed to the 120V outlet. Since risk is exposure to hazards, then safety is the reduction and management of risk. The management responsibility of an electrical safety program typically falls to an electrical engineer because he or she understands electricity. In our modern world we can never eliminate the risk, but are very good at finding new ways to reduce risk.

Another way to look at risk is the chart (Figure 2) developed by Ray Jones which shows the relationship between the worker and the safety infrastructure above him. A worker performing tasks must make many complex and specific the decisions that affect his safety. In the case of electrical safety, energy isolation is very personal for electricians facing deadly electrical energy every time they open a panel. By the time they touch electricity, it’s too late.

Zero Energy Verification–Is There Voltage?

Electrical accidents are impossible without electrical energy. If an electrician comes into direct contact with electrical energy, there is a 5% fatality rate. Shocks and burns comprise the remaining 95%. The NFPA 70e is very specific on how to isolate electrical energy. First, all voltage sources must be located and labeled. Multiple voltage sources are commonplace today due to the proliferation of back-up generators and UPS’s. Next, voltage testing devices must be validated using the LIVE-DEAD-LIVE procedure. Additionally, the voltage tester must also physically contact the voltage and must verify each phase voltage to ground.

The RCH and Electrical Safety

How does the RCH apply to electrical safety?
1. Elimination -Removing all electrical energy exposure.
2. Substitution -Lowering the electrical energy exposure.
3. Engineering Controls -Reinventing ways to control electrical energy exposure.
4. Awareness -Revealing and labeling all sources of electrical energy.
5. Administrative Controls -Regulations that teach personnel safety around electrical energy.
6. Personal Protection -Reducing risks of working on live voltage.

Electrical workers are exposed to the greatest risks at the lower levels of the RCH. Recognizing that these ‘residual risks’ are present; the NFPA 70e tells workers how to perform their work safely in spite of these risks. In fact a large portion of the NFPA 70e details how to best manage these risks through Awareness, Administration, and Personal Protection. On the other hand, the greatest opportunity for risk reduction comes by focusing in the upper part of the RCH. Huge improvements in electrical safety will come by Eliminating Substituting, and Engineering solutions that manage electrical energy exposure.
The Department of Energy (DOE)

For better insight into the RCH process, let’s look at a 2005 Department of Energy report on their electrical safety record. This report cited six reasons for their 14.1 electrical incidents per month.
Within this DOE report, “hazard identification” [Table 1] stood out as an administrative control issue resulting in numerous electrical incidents. The solution was to get tougher administrators or look for improvements higher up in the RCH. Right above Administrative Controls (see Figure 1) we learn that increasing employee’s awareness of electrical hazards will reduce these types of incidents. A potential solution is to label and mark all voltage sources (hazards) feeding the electrical system. Voltage indicators and voltage portals wired to each voltage source provides two benefits: It identifies the voltage source and provides a means to check the status of that voltage source without exposure to voltage. Apply the same process to “LO/TO violations”.

CAUSES OF INCIDENTS PRESENT RCH PRINCIPLE INCREASED RISK REDUCTION RCH PRINCIPLE Lack of hazard identification.

ADMINISTRATIVE Properly administrating NFPA 70e requires all electrical enclosures to have warning labels with incident energy level (calories). AWARENESS /ELIMINATION Marking all energy sources on the panel exterior provides personnel with simple yet safe hazard identification.

LO/TO violations including shortcuts or lack of energy verification

ADMINISTRATIVE Can the LO/TO procedure be rewritten to reduce exposure to voltage?

ELIMINATION /SUBSTITUTION Thru-door voltage pre-checking ‘eliminates’ all exposure to voltage for mechanical LO/TO* and provide significant risk reduction for Electrical LO/TO.

Reducing electrical energy to Cat 0/1 will greatly reduce the potential arc flash energy SUBSTITUTION Lowering the arc flash energy effectively ‘substitutes’ for a lower risk for a higher risk.

Elimination: The Hall of Fame of Safety

We can enter the Electrical Safety Hall of Fame by finding ways to eliminate voltage exposure. Here are a few practical examples that can be implemented today:
o Mechanical Lock-out Tag-out [LOTO]: LOTO procedures requiring electricians to verify zero energy before performing mechanical maintenance needlessly exposes workers to voltage. Since all voltages do not create mechanical motion, through-door voltage checking devices as part of a mechanical LOTO procedure will eliminate voltage exposure (see Appendix B).
o Why open a control panel? What maintenance functions can be moved to the outside of the panel? Thru-door data access ports are becoming commonplace because they allow programming with the panel door closed (Figure 3). A more recent example is an unmanaged Ethernet switch mounted outside the panel. This unique device allows full through-door access for a worker to troubleshoot and reset the Ethernet switch (Figure 4). What other devices can be re-engineered around through-door electrical safety? Perhaps putting certain branch circuit breakers on the outside of the panel is a good application?
o Control Panel Design: Provide a physical separation between the power and control compartments within an enclosure may become a standard. Voltages under 50 volts are considered safe, so reducing the control power to 24VDC makes the control power section safe to work on while it is energized.
These above examples are only ‘scratching the surface’, so I challenge you to find ways to eliminate voltage exposure.

Conclusion

When safety works perfectly, nothing happens! When there is an incident or a close call the RCH should be an inspiration to find a better way. By applying the RCH principles to electrical safety risks, it will open our eyes to see more practical ways to reduce those risks. Perhaps, we would expend more resources finding electrical safety solutions that will provide both higher safety and productivity dividends.

Harold Pitney Brown intuitively knew that eliminating risks would save lives. He just got one detail wrong when he thought that 300 Volts was not a risk. Now for the rest of the story: To prove that AC voltage is more lethal than DC, Thomas Edison hired Harold Pitney Brown to develop the first electric chair that executed William Kemmler on August 6, 1890.

How to Design Engaging Presentations

The lights are dimmed. The auditorium is full. The big screen is filled with bright colors. Then here it comes, the never-ending list of bullet points, which the presenter is reading to you one-by-one. And you? Your eyes are feeling heavy. Your head is dropping slowly, but then jolts up like a yo-yo! Oh, the guilt and shame we feel for falling asleep on what could have been an awesome presentation. We’ve all been there. Once you see the first array of bullets hit the screen, you sink into your seat and brace yourself for a brain-numbing ride. Or maybe this is sounding too familiar. Maybe YOU were the presenter! Queue the dark organ music! Storyboard artists need skills in storytelling and possibly a good background in acting.

But that doesn’t have to be you! Last year, a good friend recommended a book called “Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery” by Garr Reynolds. It’s an easy read and it absolutely revolutionized the way I think about presentations, and subsequently design presentations. An engaging presentation is truly an art that requires the right mix of slides with the right presenter. Here are six tips on presentation design that I learned from the book and have put into practice. If you think these tips are helpful, I encourage you to buy the book. It will go deeper into delivery techniques and in-depth design strategies complete with before and after slides. You can get it on Amazon for about $20.

Tip 1: One point, one slide
A single slide shouldn’t carry the weight of the world. You should be able to make your point in about 6 words and perhaps a strong visual. If the visual is strong enough, there is no need for words. And to prevent the scenario in paragraph one of this how-to, don’t write your narrative on the screen…that’s what you are for. Remember that people can’t read and listen at the same time so don’t create an environment that challenges them to do so. If you do need to have more text on a slide, use the 1-7-7 Rule:

Have only one main idea per slide.
Insert only seven lines of text maximum.
Use only seven words per line maximum.

Tip 2: Create a handout
Now that you are down to one point per slide, you are probably wondering how your audience is going to know all there is to know about your topic. Enter the handout. This handout will not be a 3-up or 6-up handout that is generated in PowerPoint. It is a narrative document that contains all of the key facts and figures that you discuss during your presentation. This will allow your audience to pay attention to you and not scramble to take notes that they probably won’t be able to read once they get back to their office.

Tip 3: Go big on imagery
Don’t be afraid to flood the entire page with a single image. It provides depth and visual interest. This will also force you to stick to one point per slide. And each slide doesn’t need to have the same header and footer on every page during a live presentation. This is a presentation after all, not a document. For those of you who are guilty of using PowerPoint Presentations as corporate documents, maybe the next how-to I write will be on designing electronic business documents. Hint: If you’re slide presentation has a lot of content that requires multiple paragraphs and several bullet points, you should probably use a word processor. This’ll ensure that your reader will understand the content, without the presenter being present.

Tip 4: Simplicity is king
The great Leonardo da Vinci said: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Think of creative ways to display your charts to help clarify the point, but keep it simple. You don’t need background image fills with a 3-D pie chart fading into the horizon line. A simple flat pie chart can often do the trick. And don’t be afraid of “white space.” Just because you have a lot of space on your slide doesn’t mean that it all has to be used.

Tip 5: You are the main attraction
The center of attention should be the presenter. Be humorous and entertaining. The slides are meant to support what you are saying, and not the other way around. You are the star of the show! You know that you have a powerful and engaging presentation if you can hold your audiences’ attention without slides. If not, you may want to re-plan your presentation. Which leads me to the last tip.

Tip 6: Plan your presentation
People like stories and have learned from parables for centuries. People need to understand facts and figures in context of the larger story. Take some time to plan and prepare your story. Consider using a storyboard to help you lay out the visual idea and key message. I’ve created a simple storyboard for you to print out and write on.

There is much more to say about presentation design, but not enough time to say it in this how-to guide. If you have any questions or would like me to take a look at your presentation, don’t hesitate to send me an email at [email protected]

How Much Does Auto Painting Cost?

Professionals generally use paint spray guns to evenly apply automotive paint. It is important that the colors are properly mixed and applied smoothly, and in layers; an auto paint job can include 12-24 coats of paint, or more. To better understand the process of how paint protection is applied onto the car just consult our paint protection Adelaide.

Typical costs:

  • Some shops offer a paint job for about $300-$900. In this price range, a shop typically uses an inexpensive synthetic enamel paint with a minimum number of coats; they might not paint areas like the door jams or inside the hood; and, in some cases, they may simply mask off rather than take off removable trim and parts (which can result in harsh masking edges or paint in unwanted areas). CostHelper readers report paying $400-$875 for a basic auto paint job at an average price of $566; about a third of these readers say they are unhappy with the results.
  • Expect to pay $1,000-$3,500 for a more thorough paint job using higher-quality, brand-name paint, with costs varying depending on the make, model and condition of the vehicle (the amount of rust and number of dents or scratches), and whether any interior or engine-area painting is included. In this price range, the process typically includes additional prep work (sanding, removing rust spots and dents) and ends with three to five applications of clear coat car paint[1] to protect the base paint color and to create a smooth, glossy final look. CostHelper readers report paying $1,000-$1,800 for a mid-quality paint job, at an average cost of $1,316; most are happy with the results.
  • A showroom-quality custom or specialty auto paint job can cost $2,500-$20,000 or more, depending on the make, model and condition of the vehicle, the location, and what is included. This typically includes the highest quality automotive paint (some of which can cost hundreds of dollars a quart); sanding the vehicle down to bare metal, removing any dents, and applying 20-24 layers of paint, including six to eight applications of clear coat; and high-end options such as details by an air brush artist or a two-tone metallic paint job. The process can take up to a month or longer. CostHelper Readers report spending $2,400-$7,500 for high-quality auto painting, with an average cost of $4,975; all report they are satisfied with the final results.

What should be included:

Before painting, the surface of the vehicle should be cleaned, sanded and primed. Professional auto painting is typically done in a well-lit (and sometimes climate-controlled) paint booth, to minimize dust and debris that might mar the paint finish. Precision Restorations in Saint Louis, MO, provides a video demonstration of auto painting techniques[2] in a paint booth inside an auto body repair shop.
Warranties can vary from six months to a year on low-cost paint jobs with basic paint, to five years or a lifetime warranty for custom paint jobs with high-end materials. The warranty terms will vary depending on the shop and the materials used; always ask what is covered.

Discounts:

  • Auto paint shops may periodically offer discounts of $50-$150 or more. For example, One Day Paint posts its monthly discounts online.
  • Some consumers save up to $200-$300 or more by doing the prep work themselves — sanding the vehicle, and removing or masking the parts that aren’t going to be painted. AutoMedia.com has a photo gallery illustrating the steps to prepare a vehicle for painting.
  • Do-it-yourself auto painting is possible, but it can be time-consuming and exacting work. Supplies can cost $100-$1,500, depending on the quality of paint ($100-$1,000) and the need to purchase tools like an automotive paint sprayer ($40-$600) or sander and sandpaper ($40-$250). Mopar Muscle Magazine explains how to paint a car.

Shopping for auto painting:

Auto painting is typically done by shops specializing in auto painting and body work. Many are small, local businesses, although there are regional chains like 1 Day Paint & Body Centers[6] (in California, Nevada and New Mexico), and Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Paint[7] is a national chain of locally-owned franchises (policies and procedures vary between franchise owners). Always check for any complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau[8] for a specific shop or franchise location.
Before selecting a shop, look at recently painted cars in its parking lot, to see the quality of work done; ask which level of work was done on each vehicle. DoItYourself.com lists tips for finding an auto paint shop. Keep your car paint neat with our car paint cleaner, know more by clicking here.

How to Create a Documentary With Public Domain Images and Film Clips

People are fascinated by history documentaries – stories of wars, biographies of important historical figures, everyday life in well known cities, evolution of technology and many other aspects of our rich collective history. This fascination is evident by all the channels on television devoted to this sort of material including The History Channel, The Military Channel and many others. Storyboard artist work with directors to visually interpret TV, advert or film scripts.

And if you watch the documentaries with a critical eye (as opposed to a “be entertained” eye), you will begin to see how they are developed. You will see the way they handle scene transitions, working with still images as well as film clips, how the commentary and the images are weaved together to tell a compelling story. And if you watch enough of them, you would be able to fully extract the formula for creating your own documentary.

And thanks to the deluge of public domain film and photographic material that is now available digitally at no to low cost, acquiring all the pieces for a first rate documentary can be done on anyone’s budget.

It all starts with an idea for a topic.

From this topic, you would next create an outline of the project. This would be done with a storyline or storyboard – basically a sketch of the elements of the documentary and the order in which they would be presented. This storyboard can be created on paper – as was common in times past – or with software. A search on your favorite search engine on the phrase “storyboarding software” will return several packages that can help you with this process. What is nice about the software is that it is easy to rearrange the story pieces as often as you wish to make the story line perfect. (When working with paper, this process is more difficult but can be overcome by working with 3×5 index cards and rearranging them as needed.)

Once the storyboard is complete, the next step is to write your script. The length of the script will be determined by the desired length of the documentary and the speed that the voice talent speaks. If you wish a 60 minute documentary and the voice talent speaks about 150 words a minute, you will need a script that is approximately 9,000 words in length.

One additional note about writing the script that needs to be emphasized is to tone of the reading. You will be handing your script to your voice talent for him or her to record and that talent will need to know what type of tone to use throughout the script. Just like a movie script, there need to be markouts in each section to describe the mood that should be expressed by the voice talent. If you don’t do this, you will most likely end up with a boring monologue that will doom your documentary.

Once you have completed the writing of the script and its markouts, it is time to work with the voice talent to record the script and digitize it for later importation into your video editing program. At this time, you can review the audio of the script and make edits, re-record sections that don’t seem to convey the proper mood, etc.

Now that you know the mechanical requirements of the script, you will link your script to the storyboard by mapping out the start points in each storyboard segment with the equivalent start point in the script. What this does is assign a certain number of words to each storyboard segment (which defines its length.) This will help you determine the approximate amount of visual material you need for each segment.

After the storyboard and script are lined up, it is time to gather the visual materials for each segment and to start laying out everything in your video editing software. This is the part that requires the biggest time investment as you will be working to be sure the length of each segment matches the appropriate ending point for that segment in the audio rendering of the script. You will also need to ensure that all the transitions of material within each segment and between segments is smooth. It takes time and patience but the effort expended here will be the difference between something that is unwatchable and a stellar documentary. Also, at this time you will probably discover that you need to replace some of the voice recordings as they may not convey the exact mood you were looking for as you review the pieces. Just record those segments again and keep iterating back and forth until you get the finished product.

Depending on your specific skills and your ready access to the visual materials and voice talents, you could create your very first documentary in a very short period of time. It really is a very exciting process and a great way to put your mark on a fascinating historic event. And who knows, it might even be good enough to sell to The History Channel.
