Ode to a Siphon Pump

Siphon pumps! What a wonderful tool. They:

-are inexpensive
-work without electricity
-take up very little space

They are a great way to move liquids around without needing to lift a heavy container. Here are some ways we use them:

1. transferring water between full 5-gallon buckets for cleaning up, rather than needing to lift one full bucket
2. emergency backup pump for any container size. We use lovely, convenient, electrical gas-station-style pumps for our 55-gallon containers, but the motors can wear out or the pumps can get clogged. Rather than stare at the full 55-gallon drums wishing we could get the liquid out, we've got a few extra siphon pumps around: a few-dollar insurance policy to give us a manual option until a new pump can arrive and get us back to normal.
3. Final emptying of containers that are an odd size for our standard electrical pumps.
4. Regular use for any liquid ingredients when we only need a little at a time, as an inexpensive start before getting a higher-flow rate electrical pump.

Here are some options:
5 gallon siphon pump on Amazon
55 gallon siphon pump on Amazon

  1. Most casinos will allow you to double down on any two playing cards 먹튀검증사이트 . Some casinos restrict your doubling to hands that total 10 or 11. To signal that you're doubling down you will place an additional wager subsequent to your unique wager. Most casinos will allow you to double down for lower than your unique wager, offered it meets the desk minimal. You only double in favorable conditions, and it is to your benefit to double for the maximum. The trade-off is having no 10s in the deck, although the jacks, queens, and kings are still there.
