INSTEON Hub - INSTANT INSTEON Ep. 5

In this episode, I show how to set up and use the Insteon Hub which is the COOLEST Insteon device I've used so far!! All of my previous episodes focused on using the Keypad Dimmer to control other devices. The Insteon Hub is an intelligent controller that you can access individual devices or setup scenes. NOTE ABOUT "RESPONDER" VS. "BOTH" When setting up a scene, each device can be set as a "Responder" (the default), "Controller", or "Both". I incorrectly selected "Both" in this video because I had used that setting when playing with the Hub and my Keypad Dimmer. I'll go into detail in a future video, but here's why "Both" was wrong: When a lamp module is set in "Both" mode, that means the lamp module also acts as a controller - which means pressing the module's "on" button turns on the scene. There may be times when this behavior would be useful, but not for the scenes in this video.

How To Make a One-Way Check Valve - For Cheap!!

The most expensive parts of a water pump, or DIY Super Soaker, are usually the check valves. In this project, we're making some from scratch, for as little as $0.35 each.

Individual results may vary, and caution and care should be taken when loading the valves with high pressure. The risk of higher pressures is that the balls may be forced from the adaptor, shooting out like projectiles. High pressures may also cause the ball to lock up, preventing normal operation of the valve, or possibly even structural failure of the valve altogether. These valves are not made, or claimed, to be used in any heavy duty operations. Use of this content is at your own risk. Music By: Music by Jason Shaw (TU-GetAMoveOn) http://www.audionautix.com Project Inspired By: WaterWolf http://www.sscentral.org/homemade/check_valves.html Project History & More Info: I wanted to build a PVC water pump, but the check valves were around $10.00 each. That seemed a little steep for a PVC build, so while looking for alternative options, I settled on this design, which is about the cheapest, while still being practical and useful, that I could imagine. In my testing, the valves work great with air and water. Air pressures up to 60PSI seemed to be fine for normal operation, while pressures above 60PSI occasionally caused the ball to lock into the O-Ring, and required substantial "back-pressure" to unlock it. If you try using rubber bouncy balls as the valve mechanism, only use them in very low pressure applications like blowing up balloons, and possibly for improvised water guns. Relatively high pressures used with these balls seems to eventually force them out of the adaptor, and can shoot them out at surprising velocities. Overall, I'm really happy with the valves because they can be fit into any part of a PVC system, and can be duplicated quickly, easily, and for very very low cost.
