Publish the Solutions of Your Problems
In his varied experiences there is, it is safe to say, no superintendent of water works who has not met up with and solved some problem in connection with water supply. It may be seemingly a minor matter that appears of little consequence to him. But even these small problems, when they are neglected or left unsolved, lead to much more serious consequences and yet how often water works men let them slide for want of knowledge as to how to remedy them.
It is here that the man who has successfully met and overcome such troubles, whether great or small, can assist his fellow superintendents by making known his methods. But how do this so as to reach the greatest number ?
There is but one answer to this query. It is—through the columns of FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING. When you have successfully overcome a difficulty or when you have an idea that will be of help to others write a plain and succinct description of your methods, take one or two good photographs, prepare some clear tracings in black and white, or make some India ink drawings, if needed to explain the matter, and send it all in to YOUR journal, for the benefit and help of your brother superintendents. Don’t delay—do it now!
