    You put bearing walls on top of your tubs?

    Nothing.

    Amp is like how big the river of power coming in is. Volts is how fast the river flows.

    You need to talk watts. Then take the mass of eletrons transfered over a specific time. They do have a mass. (I got 99% on AP Physic exam in HS)

    But that is DC. You run AC/DC

    Lots of people don't know it . . . but the water from a fire hydrant is the same that you drink and bathe with.

    It takes a special wrench . . . or a pipe wrench . . . and some of them are left handed threads . . . but it could be a "last resort" . . . and if you live in the city . . . in the tunnels under the street . . . there are drains on them . . . so as a VERY last resort . . . down into the tunnels . . . take containers . . . have at it.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    I have a Primo water dispenser so I try to keep 5 bottles on hand, 1 in the dispenser and 4 full ones sitting the the garage. Should times get tough there's a pretty good size pond within easy walking distance and a huge river within walking distance but quiet a bit further away than the pond. My plan there would be to use empty 5 gallon primo bottles to fill, bring back to the house, and purify. I have sawyer filters, life straws, and coffee filters/bots to boil
