>it'll last 25-30 years they said
Well, fuck you, whoever installed this 25 years ago, fuck you. Now I have contaminated water to boot. Hopefully, bleech will take care of that problem after I fix this shit.
How's your day been, /diy/? What /diy/ things do you hate doing or cleaning up after someone else who did things cheaply/lazily/wrong?
Creating a mask for an underwater bed
20 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hello there, /diy/. This is my first time posting here.
What I'm looking for are the materials/items I'll need to construct a breathing mask for underwater use, but not to be connected to an oxygen tank or anything like that.
The mask itself needs to be something similar to what jet pilots wear (covers the mouth and nose), but it needs to be an air-tight mask without any valves to release air. Think of it like a full-face snorkel, but connected to flexible tubing that will be kept afloat with a sort of buoy apparatus.
Oh, and I HAVE considered that the wrong size and length of tubing will result in breathing increased levels of carbon dioxide. I've already got that figured out. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Are all sliding glass doors with this sort of latching mechanism just absolute shit when it comes to security, or is it just this one?
Locked myself out the other day, and had to try to break in. Took less than 1 minute, all I needed to do was to lift up on this sliding glass door a couple times, and the latch disengaged.
Since then I bought a piece of wood, cut to length, to prevent the door from being slid open, which is effective. But I also tried to adjust the door itself, the plate the latch latches to, and the latching mechanism itself (two screws that adjust the length the hooks reach out when you turn the knob to lock the door). Raising the door helped *some*, but not enough. Adjusting the (strike plate? don't know the right term here) may have helped, as did playing with the latch adjustment screws themselves. But I can still pull up on the door a few times and get it to disengage. Are these all just absolute shit security-wise, or is there a procedure for adjusting them so you can't defeat them so easily? If not then the wooden stick is enough if I'm going to be gone for an extended period of time.
No, I haven't Googled this yet. Just about to. If I find anything useful I'll post it here for the edification of everyone else.
