  1. I plan on renting an excavator and have truck/trailer to move it. Prelim pool dimensions put me at around 100 CY so even with some place to go with the spoil I'll still have to get a small dump truck to haul it.I think the typical load is about 14 CY. I'll have to price that out for sure. If I am not able to save at least 60% over what the installed price would be I don't see it being worth the hassle. Other than that I feel pretty confident I can get it done. It will be a fun one an I'll probably regret attempting it halfway through but think I'm going to go for it. Pic is from the dist. website.
  2. So I have recently purchased a new home and we will be closing in a couple weeks. I have been doing some research and think I may have convinced myself that I can install my own inground pool. I would be purchasing all the same materials the pros use online and likely going with an inground vinyl lined option. I want to do the dig, pool walls, plumbing, pump, and liner on my own. I would leave the finish concrete and electric (if any) to a pro. Anyone attempted this or found a reason to talk themselves out of it?
  3. I don't know if I could make it through that one again. Towards the end the mandatory horse riding was like nails on a chalkboard to me. Awesome game but I'm to impatient.
  4. Multi family garage sale today and tomorrow. Sunday we are taking the kiddo to an aquarium and local festival thing. Nothing to epic here lol
  5. It's a fairly large part of the afternoon. Doing accurate conversions and utilizing the flow-rate of solids equation will take you a long way but just depends on this particular exam. Mine had a good deal of the chemistry aspect as well.
  6. @saraxoYeah long way for me to just say take the avg. lol
  7. Using above methodology the 25 year storms curve would be just slightly above the 20 year storm which is incorrect. In reality it would be roughly half way between the 20 and 50 year events. From the chart I get 20 = 5.8, 50 = 6.9 (6.9-5.8)/2=.55 (average) 5.8+.55=6.35 (20 yr event + avg.) Reason being that the curve is based on the probability of that storms recurrence and not just the difference in years. A 25 year storms chance of recurrence is somewhere in the vicinity of halfway between a 20 and 50. Hope this helps.
  8. Oh okay. To better visualize this assume you have 2 identical unit hydrographs in the same plot. The first begins at T=0. The second doesn't begin until T=12. Therefore when when the second hydrograph reaches T=15 it has only been producing runoff for 3 hours. Soooo those are supposed to be identical curves. Excuse the picture. I'm an engineer not an artist lol. Hope this helps.
  9. Okay so I'm assuming you are just looking for an explanation on the scaling? If not please let me know. So to get the solution they went to the hydrograph constructed based on the 4.37 cm precip and found Q = 35 m^3/s at 15 hrs and 10 m^3/s at 3 hrs. Keeping in mind these values are for 4.37 cm you have to scale each value so for the 5 cm event 5/4.37 = 1.14 or 114% ( I like to think of them in percentages). Replicated for the 12 cm event 12/4.37 = 2.75 or 275%. Q = 35*1.14 + 10*2.75 Q = 67.5 I feel like I just rewrote their solution but just a little more in my mindset. Point being you have runoff values based on the 4.37 event but the events you are calculating are some degree different so you have to scale for the variance. Vice versa you could say @ 15 hrs you get 35/4.37 = 8 so you get (8 m^3/s) per cm and @ 3 hrs you get 10/4.37 = 2.29 (m^3/s) per cm then multiplied those values by your corresponding storm events. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
  10. I don't have that exact book but if you would like to explain your problem and question I bet me or someone else could help you out.
  11. that I'll hang around as long as she would let me
  12. She was being detained for making moonshine but managed to escape.
  13. Stuff like this is just a little annoying to me coming from the heart of oilfield country. Everyone is an "engineer" in the oilfield no matter what they actually do. I know I'm probably being Petty Mayonnaise on this but still bugs me.
  14. Agree 100%. Loved the book. Movie doesn't do it justice. The book had some really cool 80's nostalgia and the characters seemed to appreciate it. Movie they were just in it for the contest. Kinda took the fun out of it for me.
