    TOILET FLUSH SIPHON UNITS – Repair diaphragm – Plumbing Tips

    December 3, 2019

    – [Announcer],
    honest reviews and advice. – Hold tight and welcome to today’s video. Today we’re going to look into
    the world of syphon units, we’ve done a load of videos before on how you actually take one
    of these out and replace it. But we’ve never done a video
    on actually how they work. So we’re gonna cover that now, but also we’re gonna cover
    the repair that you can do to these syphon units, to make them work. And also we’re gonna show you, using this lovely clear box here and a bucket just down
    there how they work. ‘Cause we’re gonna sit
    it inside this box here and get it running. So I hope you enjoy the video, please remember to subscribe
    by clicking on the links in the corner or whatever. You can follow us on Twitter
    and Facebook and let’s go! Hold tight. So number one, the components
    you’ll get when you buy one of these syphon units. Firstly you’ve got a compression nut and a rubber O ring here, that you can put your flush pipe into, if you’ve got a flush pipe down. That’s for a cistern that
    we call a wall hung cistern, that’s not exactly close
    coupled to the toilet. So basically you can put
    your pipe up into there, this will go round and
    as you tighten that up, the rubber compression washer here will compress round onto that pipe and basically make a watertight seal. We’ll look at the other way
    of sealing one of the cisterns onto a toilet in a second. The other piece you have, is
    your actual locking nut, okay. What this does is creates compression on the bottom of the toilet cistern which is gonna be in here, onto this rubber little flange just here. So what’s that gonna do
    when that tightens up, it’s gonna make that really tight and then no water will be put into our makeup system for now. Will be able to leak
    through when you’re not flushing the toilet. Before I actually pop
    this onto our little box that we’ve got here, it’s a great idea to know
    how to get one of these out. So let’s firstly cover
    the problems you can get with one of these. Let’s say you’ve got a
    handle on your toilet flush, and you just keep having
    to pump it to get it going. The problem with that is, and it’s really, really easy to solve, is that the flap inside here. If you look when pull
    this up we’ve got a flap that pulls up like that. I mean, it’s so hard if I put it here you can actually see it
    pushes air out onto my hair. What’s that doing is
    initiating the syphon. You’ve probably got about
    a litres worth of water sitting above this flap
    and when you pull this up, this retaining plastic area here doesn’t allow that water to
    escape back into the system. It’s only got one place to go. So it’ll fly up here and then down here. This downward action of
    water flowing through here, acts as kind of a valve and
    it carries on sucking water. That is the basic principle of a syphon. But how do you ask, does
    the rest of the water come out and through? Well if you look here, these
    flaps can lift up like so and basically allow all that water to carry on going through the syphon and then going out down the loo and flushing whatever
    you’ve put in the loo away. That’s the great thing about them, they go back automatically because underneath
    you’ve got a spring here, and that is basically the main
    fault that can go with these, is this flap starts to break and that is always indicative by the fact you have to keep pumping. In the end it does sometimes work. In the end they’re just
    so broken up and ruined that you can’t get at them to do it. So we’ve done a video on
    how you remove a syphon unit and they’re really easy to do. A lot of them now are
    even easier than that, and I have a little yellow pin in here that you can pull out and you can actually just lift top off without even having to
    drain down the cistern. It’s a majorly good idea, that is. But anyway, say you’ve
    got your syphon unit out, this will be handle linkage here, so as you pull your handle,
    that will lift the lever up and lift this piece up here like so. What you wanna do is take
    this linkage out like that and then you’ll be able to pull out the bottom part of our
    syphon just like so. Remember you’ve got a couple
    of washers here in the top, that you don’t want to lose. So look, now you can see, when we pull on that lever,
    that’s lifting up like so and push all that water up there but then obviously once
    the water starts to flow, it can go down like
    that, but it can’t escape when you’re actually trying
    to start your syphon. As you can see, these
    are really, really easy to take these little flaps off. They’ve got two little pins
    here, just pop them out, you can buy a replacement
    flaps for these anywhere. I’ve even know people get
    random bits of plastic like DPM or whatever,
    cut it to the right size and lay it in there
    and even that’s worked. Right. There we go, ready to go. So what we’re gonna do to show
    you these actually work is, I’ve just got to get my drill set up. And we’re going to drill
    a hole in this box here. Right so there, now
    we’ve got our hole there, we’ve got our rubber flap on here, so we’re gonna push that
    down onto here like so. And nip this up. I’ll just show the you
    the other way these go on, usually when you’re nipping these up, you pop this little clamp on here, if you’ve got a close
    coupled toilet cistern. So now we’ve got this tightened up, usually you’d have two
    screws here that go down into the toilet cistern that you can see from underneath
    the cistern just like this. And then to make a watertight seal on a close coupled cistern, you have a rubber doughnut like this, that goes around that cistern there okay. So we’re just gonna tighten
    this up as best we can. Right so, I’ve got my bucket
    here with some water in it. I’ll just pour this in. So there we go, we’ve now got a lovely
    nice full toilet cistern. We’ve got a little handle here, so say your handles on
    there and you pull that this is gonna lift this
    flap up, just like we said, it’s gonna force water out through here and then down through this pipe for as long as it can draw a syphon for. Which will probably be until about here. Because in a minute, I’m gonna
    show you that there’s ways you can adjust how much
    these actually flush to save yourself a little bit of water. So, let’s just say we pull that now. Brilliant, so as you can see, we’ve got a nice full flush here. We’ve still got a little bit
    of water in the bottom here. So if you want to change
    the amount of water that actually flushes out, down the side of most of these you have two little plugs
    you can actually remove. If you move the higher plug up, what that does is allow
    air into the syphon and that would actually break the syphon and stop the toilet flushing. The higher up you have
    this hole, the less water you will have flushing
    out of the toilet cistern. And the more water you’ll
    save on each flush. So there you go, that’s what I call a full flush. What we’ll do is we’ll
    draw a little line on here, so we know where that came
    to, that’s roughly there. What we’ll do now is
    we’ll just plug that out, two of those plugs there and we’ll see how much
    water we’ll roughly save. And other time that’s gonna save you thousands of litres of water over a year. So, let’s pop these out. It’s easier to get a screwdriver, you can just sort of reach in. Right so we’ve taken our two plugs out, just like that, and now we’re
    gonna fill this up again. Right, let’s see how much water we save. So as you flush the toilet we should see the air sucked through this
    hole here and break the syphon. There we go. And that’s broken that
    syphon nice and early. Look at that, we’ve got a saving there, that’s gotta be five litres at least, probably about five litres
    worth of water there saved on that flush. Just because we’ve got
    a nice big box here. But just imagine over your
    cistern over a load of time. So there we go, I hope that’s
    given you a better idea about how syphon units work, how to save money on syphon units and also how to change that
    little flap if they go wrong. If you need any more help,
    or any more information, please visit our website as I said please subscribe to our videos. We upload regularly, pretty much weekly, and we also answer your questions on our Facebook and Twitter page. If you send us a Facebook
    question using your mobile phone and make a little video
    of you asking the question and showing us the problem. We may well use it on our next Ask the Plumber video on YouTube. Until next time everyone,
    keep flushing the toilet, I hope it works okay and
    remember to hold tight. – [Announcer],

    Keirin: Speed Racers – Watch Japan’s Track Cycling Phenomenon

    December 2, 2019

    In 1949 the Keirin started
    in Kokura, in the Kyushu island Now they have 47 tracks all over Japan Leaders are always leading
    and you could be leading until the goal It happens a lot One of the best tactics too
    also they don’t crash Leader don’t crash In Japan, those racing is organized
    by municipals the city and the prefecture government The reason is try to rebuild Japan
    after the war they have to find the money from somewhere That’s how they started This is not pure sports I think this very, very important thing
    for understanding the Japanese Keirin This event is for the, how do you say, big money We’re gamblers The sport is very easy,
    you know? The Olympic game They’re looking for
    who is the strongest rider? who is strongest rider? But we are not Gambling is different If the strong rider wins every time
    it’s not gambling I was riding fighting style drafting the best guy
    and fighting with other guys If you fail, you’re going to fall And you’re going to crash A lot of people want to be there It’s pretty hard to get in It took a long time for me
    but I made a pro at the third year and I love this It makes me so excited The Keirin is so deep. Many organizations got involved.
    So many people got involved. So many interested in each organization so many stakes The race itself is really deep Money betting in Keirin
    is over seven billion Yen alone per year If I help this guy, he will help me It sounds like cheating,
    but it’s not You can’t win a race by yourself so even the Tour de France
    is the same thing, right? Of course a strong rider
    yeah, he’s strong but two or three weak riders
    they make some groups and one rider try to, say, pushing and a strong rider
    will be very difficult to win So we would just permit
    that a little bit if legitimate, it means
    we are permit the fighting each other But we make the balance
    for the safety and gamble But this is a very difficult question.
    I think there is no answer
