I hate it when I “know” what the problem is!

So the problem is the high pressure wax function does not work in one of the bays.  First I decided there was crap in the hp wax solenoid.  So I slowly starved the pump of water to pull the crap out of the solenoid.  That did not work so I removed the solenoid to clean it, which did not work.  So I decided the problem was with the needle valve which I just removed all of them, that did not help.  Then I pulled out my voltmeter and checked to see if I was getting voltage from the switch to the equipment room which I was not (I am getting somewhere!).  So now I need to figure out how to check a rotary switch.  I need to give Greg a call!

How to cook hot dogs in the microwave? – UPDATE

You would be surprised how many people search my blog for “how to microwave hot dogs”.  So I have been revising my hot dog making craft over the last year and decided to post my new method of cooking / boiling / microwaving hot dogs.

First get 2 glass bowls, one is the size of the hotdogs and the other is just acting as a weight.  Second fill the bowl about 1/3 up with water.  Third insert your hotdogs.

Now insert the small bowl on the hot dogs this will keep the hotdogs under the water to boil the them.  Set the microwave for 4:00 on high and hit start.  Then they should be done.  Also, the bowls will be hot!

Another hotdog eating tip:  When eating crappy hotdogs, try adding lots of Tabasco!

Water Wizard Preparation – Water pressure fix

IMG_9331.JPGIMG_9401.JPG

Greg came by the carwash today to help us troubleshoot my water pressure problem.  His idea was to get a water pressure gauge and see what the water pressure is before the regulator (hose bib) and before the Water Wizard hydrominder.  It ended up that I was getting 90 psi before the regulator and 40 psi before the hydrominder.  Then we decided to remove a large inline filter and the pressure jumped to 60 psi.  This jump in water pressure to 60 psi with the 1″ water line allowed me enough water to keep up with the high pressure functions.
