i think sir, when flood comes, your piping will be ruined, nice to divert the water right or left side of a river using a concrete dam and wooden flash two flush board just incase of flood and any flotsam/sand to stock in your dam

Running just great all winter. Can develop a ice cap over the intake screen when it’s really cold -10 to teens Farenheitb but not a problem. Just keeps flowing and currently generating about 7200w 24/7/365. Will turn flow and resultant power down and remove creek diversion in May for spring melt off. All is well. Thx for watching

Imagine a football field size set of panels which is what you would need to supply a comparable feed of power, attached to a large array of batteries requiring maintenance. Then imagine 6-8 inches of snow which would need to be cleared after each snowstorm. At 8600ft. in the winter it would be like having a job instead of a reliable power source. Hydro excels because it is consistent 24/7/365 power that requires little maintenance once installed. thx for watching. If you haven't seen it check out parts 20-1,2,3 which are a synopsis of it all.

I do like that Dodge truck at 10:28! Subtle body line's hide it's aggressiveness! As a child, One of my neighbor's had the same make & model! His was in prestige condition! It was brown with stickers stating "POWER WAGON" & like I mentioned, In meticulous condition until one day, He had to much to drink & as a 14 yr old, I asked him to assist in helping out with a jumpstart & looking back on the situation, Had I of realized that he had been drinking, I would not have asked him! He only moved his truck 20 yards & destroyed it, hitting a pole & destroyed the trucks value & looks! Requiring severe body work, it would have been easier to replace entire body panels back when that truck was more common & many more of that model were in local junk yards & in relatively good shape! Imagine one with a Hellcat or Demon drivetrain & possibly a 4wheel drive set up, That would be a sweet ride!

You’re not the first to make the comment on the welds. All the welding was achieved for $250 at an auto shop. The focus was to keep the cost down and the pipes only need to hold 100 psi. They may not be pretty or up to your standard but they work fine

May I suggest that in many of these videos that you have your lips too close to your microphone which causes a "popping" sound when your breath hits the mic's diaphragm. To solve this problem, you might want to consider investing in an inexpensive "pop filter". Generally, these are round devices with a mesh filter or fabric suspended within the ring. It mounts between your mouth and the microphone. Terry Thomas Director of Photography Atlanta, Georgia USA

Thx Terry. As a retired Hollywood DP myself, i get it. That particular video was uploaded 3 yrs ago. I have endeavored in subsequent videos to not make similar errors. Given that the series was for the most part shot on my iphone with the headset as a mic, i made a decision that the information was more important than form. Professional quality? no, but a budget-less attempt to share my knowledge gained over decades and fill an informational gap on the internet. Sorry if it bothered you and I appreciate your constructive critique, but once uploaded I’ve left things alone. 4.5m+ views on the series which I originally intended as an explanation to any future buyer of the property of how it was created has been a great reward to me. I get all sorts of complaints and suggestions of how to change what is already finished. I do appreciate your comment unlike many which can be cruel and harsh criticism based on aesthetic or practical decisions i took long ago. Such is the internet... Thx for watching just the same😉

A couple ratchet straps that size aren't sufficient for the 3200lbs impact force the pipe can provide. Don't redneck things people.
MrHydrohead
MrHydrohead 7 месяцев назад
3” radius squared times pi times 96psi = ~2714 lbs. Perhaps it was cutting it close, but your rough calc doesn’t factor in the compression friction of the compression union. Also your use of the term “impact” seems to indicate that all that force would be applied at a single moment. I appreciate you’re cautioning others of the physics of the situation, but it worked just fine for the short test and I’m far from what anyone who knows me would term a redneck. Thx for the comment just the same and thx for watching 🙈🙉🙊

I know , you think its a crappy job. I paid $200 for all the welding at a auto shop vs. a bid if 850-1000 at a weld shop. At 100 psi I figured i got a deal on 12 welds of 6” & 4” components. Social media is flooded with oversensitivity, unjust aggression, name-calling, bullying, finger-pointing, etc. i do get tired of those that believe they know better than those making decisions at site and reflect that thru snide comments.

Seems like you've invested too heavily in the structures and materials. Especially in energy costs to produce them, seems with this level of resource waste you'll be waiting a long time for a return on investment. Same thing can be done with a 12V alternator and some PVC pipe.
MrHydrohead
MrHydrohead 9 месяцев назад
There are always people who know better without all the facts and nuances to the decisions taken. It's clear you have not seen the entire series. Your judgement that we could heat a house in winter at 8600 ft, have ample power to charge a car in the future, heat all domestic water and an outdoor hot tub year round, run all lights tools appliances and Internet with the output from "a 12v alternator and some PVC pipe" is nonsense. Why would we replace high end AC equipment that has been performing since 1996 to harness power with a far inferior DC system with far less efficiency? If you had really been curious about our project you would have realized it was never based on ROI but was initially an alternative solution to a 1996 quoted price of $140k to bring grid power to the property. An investment in the value of the property.

Excellent Hydro engineering, may you have many years of power. How long until late it pays for itself?
MrHydrohead
MrHydrohead 9 месяцев назад
It paid for itself day 1. In 1995 I got an estimate of $20k per mile x 7 miles or $140k to bring grid power in. First system ran $25k and update to creek was $55k. Also to run power to the property today would be $250-300k. So rather than looking at it as a cost analysis based on rates and power produced, it's better to think of it as a long term investment in the value of the property where all future power is virtually free.

+Cody McCall There is no ability for aquatic life to migrate up or down stream, causing a serious decrease in genetic diversity. Silt also builds up behind structures that impede flow, resulting in 'dead zones' where aquatic life needs cobble and flowing water. Silt clogs the gills of fish and other amphibians.

I'm just seeing this for the first time, but you may want to pust gravel around the burping/air release pipe that's by the damn. or put a 90° elbow and extended pipe on it so it drains any trapped water back into the reservoir
