Can't tell you where to find them, haven't tracked them down myself yet. Saw
one installed on TV a few months back on the "Ask This Old House" show.
Maybe some info on their web site?
I may have misrepresented how they operate. The important feature is not so
much that they keep pressure off the feed hoses most of the time (maybe they
don't do that?), but rather that if a feed hose breaks, the amount of water
that ends up on your floor is limited to what was in the hose. That's a
whole lot less that what might get sprayed out of a broken hose before it
eventually gets noticed a few hours or days later if you're on vacation.
I've had one of those air purifier / ionizer things for some time now.
Its called a Breeze by EcoQuest. Its about twice the size of a toaster. No
filters. It has glass plates that you just remove to clean off once in a
while. Since I started using the air purifier the level of dust has been
reduced dramatically. I think when the layout is finished the dust level
will be almost zero. This thing is fantastic. Don't know where my wife found
it but I'm sure you can get them just about everywhere. I run it about an
hour a day max and leave it on when working in the shed. One of these might
help with your washer / dryer situation. At least the air will smell
great........ kind of like after storm with a cold rain. Bruce
Thanks very much for all the comments on this topic. Looks like I'll need to
think some more about this.
One other possibility came to mind as a result of this discussion. If I move
the washer/dryer into my guest bedroom, it would be close to the other
bedrooms and out of the RR room. That would keep the dryer lint out of the
RR room, give me more RR space in that room, eliminate a bunch of obstacles,
and let me lock up the RR room when it's not in use to keep out folks who
don't belong in there. And I could use the current dryer vent for the paint
booth. Downside is I lose a bedroom and rental income from the college
students I've been renting to.
Be rather tough to operate inside a pipe, as I was planning to put an upper
deck (probably the passenger station) over the washer/dryer, not just a
single track from one side of the laundry area to the other. The entire RR
would be within about 20 feet of the washer/dryer anyway if I don't relocate
the washer/dryer to another room.
