re: Help with Water Well Pump - Unobtanium
Yes, also related to Costalotium. An old college professor's favorite term for the perfect conductor/insulator/etc. was "unobtanium" - back in the '70's. Then James Cameron stole it for Avatar....

Help with Water Well Pump - Unobtanium
posted this on OT, who knows what responses I'll get. My folks have a water well (no access to "city water"), and the seal on the pump (Red Jacket brand) is leaking bad. Anyone have a lead on where I can find repair parts? I've got a few names from the yellow pages, but asking around can't hurt. ...

re: Water well drillers BR area - Unobtanium
Somewhat related - where can I find repair parts for an older well pump (Red Jacket brand). Have a short list of places to call from Yellow Pages, but the OT's collective knowledge is vast, and sometimes a little scary. TIA....

re: Boiling Crawfish on Natural Gas - Unobtanium
The burner is set up for normal residential gas pressure, about 6" water pressure. I ran a 3/4" line from the main line to the patio. All works well....

re: Boiling Crawfish on Natural Gas - Unobtanium
BTU's are BTU's. You just need more orifice area with natural gas due to its lower heating value per volume versus propane. I've had one for 10 years, works like a champ. Looks like this (too lazy to post a pic): [link=(http://www.bayouboiler.com/photos/)]LINK[/link]...

re: Oakland intl airport - Unobtanium
OAK to Napa is a breeze compared to SFO. I don't remember the freeway numbers, but you hop onto one just east of the airport, then go north past Oakland, the Bay Bridge and Berkley. Go to Prager's Port Works and have a sip or two for me - thanks....

Experiences with Hi-Lift Jacks? - Unobtanium
Figured I'd get better response here rather than OT board. I'm looking to buy a Hi-lift jack for my farm tractor and trailer. Looks to be well made, portable and more lift range than a hydraulic jack. Amazon reviews are very good, but you guys are a great resource close at hand as well. Feedba...

re: Deconstruction on Perkins Road - in Front of New Apts - Unobtanium

Deconstruction on Perkins Road - in Front of New Apts - Unobtanium
So EBR DPW is removing the barrier they installed in front of the west entrance to this new apartment complex (The District I think). Anyone know the reason? I thought this was a bad idea from day one (raised barrier in the suicide lane), so I assume some event spurred its removal. TIA for any...

re: Buying a house in proposed St. George - Unobtanium
These are my best guesses based on my understanding of how things work now: Water - BR water company, no difference; Sewage - under parish-wide Dept. of public Works (I think), would not expect any change; Road repair - same parish-wide DPW; Police - they cover inside BR city limits only, St.Geo...
