I Think the Tea is Ready (What?! I Can’t Hear You)

Most of the irrigation system set up and, while testing, I noticed some of the emitters on the drip line emit a high-pitched noise somewhere between the sound a tea kettle makes when boiling and the feedback from my great grandfather’s hearing aid. I am going to send an email to the supplier to see what they say, but I am assuming the problem is caused by dirt in the line or high water pressure.

    Hi Bob,

    I’m experiencing the same thing. Did you find anything out? My guess is that it has something to do w/ water pressure

      Not yet, but I haven’t spent much time looking. I still intend to email the company I ordered it from, but it seems that I spend most of my free time out in the garden. I’m almost positive the noise is a pressure thing, because it goes away if I have another hose open, or someone is using greater volumes of water in the house (washing machine, even briefly when the toilet flushes). Now that I finally have everything set and ready, I might look into this more.

        For me this is a relatively easy quesiton, but has a pretty complex answer. The specialty I have actually looked forward to working with is OB/GYN. I find that the ability of a woman’s body to produce a child, endure the amount of abuse it takes during a pregnancy, and the amount of pain endured during delivery is amazing. The joy of being able to be present as life enters the world is truly one of the greatest moments in life. To me that would be the best possible option. I also would love working in the operating room with a surgeon. I have experienced the OR quite a few times, and have been on both sides of the table. I have to say I would love to work with any surgeon in the OR except for Orthopedics. The reason behind that is the surgery’s are pretty brutal when it comes to the skeletal system. Having been in the OR with an Orthopedic surgeon and seeing the use of the saws, hammers and other heavy equipment in order to perform the surgery just sends chills up my spine. I know that type of surgery is not for me. I think my favorite surgeries have to be that of the abdominal cavity. The specialties that I would least like to work for are few, and for simple reasons. Pediatrics is not a specialty for me since I have four children of my own. My Aunt is a neonatal nurse practitioner and I followed her in high school and saw the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can honestly say I could not emotionally handle that type of position. Podiatry is also an area I could not see myself working. The reason behind this is pretty silly, but here goes, I very much dislike other peoples feet especially if they are not well kept. I know in the medical field you will encounter feet on a daily basis, but I could not mainly work with feet on an everyday basis. My last specialty is Orthopedics for the reasons I noted above about the barbaric nature of the surgeries and treatments for the musculoskeletal system. Its just not for me.
