We have the dual flush system and I was wrong about flush size. Not just wrong but really, really wrong. Mr Google tells me that with the dual flush and for a 4 star rating it's about 4.5 litres for a full flush and about 3 litres per 1/2 flush. Sh!t (pun intended), no wonder there's skid marks left all the time. And we have a vegetarian in the house to make matters worse.
Do you people over in that other place have the saying.....if it's yellow let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down? We can but try with less then 5 litres of flushiness.

Cheers Scott

Are you on water restrictions or something? or is it just bad potty training?

Scoyyt2 Do you have the wrong size toilet pan?, YES, the pan is probably a full flush pan./ They are much bigger in the water holding area in the inside bottom of the pan. The half flush pan holds only half or less than a full flush pan. Much easier for the greenies to fill. It is a long time since I installed one but they were around a lot in the early sixties-seventies etc. I don't know if they are still in use these days. Cheers John.

Or maybe we lay big logs?
We have all new dunnies. 1/2 flushes suck. I'd like to find one of the old Silentia (I think they were) pull the chain overhead concrete reservoirs and decent dunny pan to put in the shed when we build it. A nice big drop for the decent amount of water.....the Coriolis created by that combination will get rid of the skids.

That's a pretty handy crane. 375kg @ 5m is not bad at all. Will your crane allow slewing over the cab? One of the bad bits with the crane that's lifting Freddy is it won't allow slewing anywhere near the cab. It can be a pain.

In addition to post #4 I have raised beds in the garden. I have a pallet rack I built a roof over and added sides and canvas roll up curtain to have easy axcess to my implements and scrap steel. Everything in on pallets so it can be moved with the positrack. Added roof over my diesel tank. I built crates for handling wood. I stand them on end to stack the wood then lay them down to store them in the fabric building. I handle it once when I cut/split it and once when it goes into the boiler. In my 71 years I have had somewhere around 18 broken bones, a broken back, 2 back surgeries, a kidney removed (cancer). So when I pea it pulls to the left a little. I have to be careful in the public rest room that I don't spray the guy next to me. Lots of arthuritus. I also have a form of MD. I have to strain to take a gallon on laquer thinner off the top shelf. Other than that I'm doing fine.

Hi

Anything over 2 pound should be lowered by rope too prevent backwash.
