    Default DIY Electricity

    I've decided to get off the grid and generate my own hydroelectric power. I think I've almost got it!

    Well clearly there is a bad connection in the lower outlet.

    It's supposed to flow top to bottom, that's how the elekumtrickity is generated.

    I thought about it all day, and I think I get it, get it, got it!!!

    The reason why the elekumtrickity flows out from the top and not the bottom is because you cut the silver and brass tabs that connect between the bottom and the top, right spruce ?

    Obviously, the water is under pressure, making it rise to the top outlet.
    The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
