Water Questions and Answers

Some time ago FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING suggested that its Questions and Answers department was open as well to the uses of water works men as it was to the members of the fire service. Since that time many superintendents and others connected with the water supplies of the country have taken advantage of this department, and sent us in questions which we have endeavored to answer to the best of our ability. But we want to hear from more of our readers. This section of the paper is ready to serve all who take advantage of it, and if your “posers” are too deep for us to solve we will throw them into the forum for the other man who has had similar problems to wrestle with and has found a way out of the difficulty to come to our and your rescue. The pages of FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING should be the common ground on which the men of the water service can meet and discuss their troubles, suggest solutions for their problems, and endeavor to mutually help each other in the little every-day questions which vex the life of the water works superintendent. Use its columns to the full extent.

Water Questions and Answers

In our Questions and Answers pages of this issue are printed two requests for information from water department sources and the replies. We commented, a few weeks ago, on the fact that the readers of FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING who are affiliated with the water department and other water supply interests had not taken as much advantage of this department of our paper as we could wish, and it is hoped that these inquiries will be followed by others. We are only too glad to be of assistance to our readers in any way and in all ways that we can. and if the problems you submit to us are too knotty for our Questions and Answers editor to solve, we can at least present the question to our readers, and no doubt there will be some among them who may have met with the same difficulties and solved them. So send in your questions without hesitation, and if we can answer them, we will be only too happy to do so; and if we can’t, we will throw the subject open to our readers for discussion and elucidation.
