Maintaining a Freshwater Aquarium: 100% Foolproof Method (Part I)

Many folks have or want a pet fish, but unfortunately, not all fish are as resilient as the common beta and necessitate more dedicated care. Case in point, you cannot toss a freshwater fish into a bowl with unfiltered water from your sink and do nothing but feed it once a day. Here, you may find out how to sustain a freshwater tank so you can keep happy, healthy fish that will live longer than a week.

1. First, figure out what material you want your tank to be made of. The most well-liked options are glass and acrylic (plastic), and each one has their individual pros and cons…examples being that glass breaks easier, but is more economical than acrylic, or that glass cannot be shipped via mail, yet acrylic is a better insulator than glass. It comes down to taste in the end, so we can’t advocate one tank over another.

2. You also must take into account the size of the tank that you’ll require depending upon how many fish you aim to keep. You probably will not need a tank the size of a small car for one fish, but you also can’t cram two dozen fish into a miniature tank and expect them to live. Like us, fish need oxygen; the smaller the tank, the less oxygen will be available to them. Our recommendation? Buy the biggest tank you can afford – even for a couple fish, a large tank is quintessential for space and breathing. Fish tanks come in quite a variety of sizes, from a tiny 2-gallon tank to a massive 180-gallon one. You shouldn’t require anything larger than a mid-sized tank, though, and these range from 20 to 40 gallons.

3. A freshwater tank will necessitate a filter system of some kind. There are loads of filters and filtration methods available for the freshwater tank which include canisters, standard power, sponge, mechanical, chemical, skimmers, ultraviolet, ozone (almost always for large, commercial tanks) and under gravel (most common and most favored) filters. Like the tank itself, the type of filter you purchase is up to partiality and possibly budget. In addition, you’ll need to get some kits to test the water for ammonia and nitrate, both of which are byproducts of breathing fish and both of which are toxic to fish (kind of like how humans exhale carbon dioxide, which is toxic to us). And be sure to clean out the filter from time to time; if it gets congested with fish waste or gravel, it won’t work like it should and your fish could get sick.

4. Don’t overlook a heating system – water in which fish are present is not always the same temperature as your tap. A good temperature to keep your tank at for tropical fish is around the mid to upper 70s…any hotter or colder and they may not live too long. Also, you’ll have to invest in an air p ump to keep the water circulating in the tank since no fish lives in a natural environment with completely stationary water.

5. Before you place your fish in their new home, be sure you’ve let the tank “run” for a few hours (as in at least 12 hours) so the water becomes thoroughly oxygenated and heated. Would you want to go into a new house with no heat or running water, or one where everything’s ready to go for your arrival?

6. How many fish do you want in your tank? A good rule of thumb (or fin) is that for each inch of fish, you should have a gallon of water, and this will depend on the size of the fish. For example, a dozen little fish will not need as much oxygen as one great big one. If you put a plethora of fish into the same tank, there will not be sufficient oxygen for each of them and they’ll start dying. As an example, four four-inch fish would do just fine in a properly-filtered and heated 20-gallon tank.

The above-listed steps give an overall explanation of the process of setting up the tank and getting it running. Please continue reading Maintaining a Freshwater Aquarium – 100% Foolproof Method Part II to learn about the fish themselves, how to feed them, how to keep their water clean, and keeping an eye on your critters to ensure good health.

Koi Pond Construction

There is a great variety of koi pond construction equipment that includes skimmers which help get rid of water surface wreckage. Some others are aerial systems and water pumps used to re-circulate the pond water so more oxygen can be dissolved into it. The koi ponds built in the Japan are more sophisticated and more advanced as compared to normal backyard fish gardens. They are constructed with care, skill and ingenuity, in other words they are works of art. They represent some amazing engineering designs that are not noticed in regular fish gardens.

It is interesting to note that aesthetics is a big factor in furnishing a koi garden. The exterior of the garden is sometimes more important than the fish itself. The position, shape, adjoining materials, and building techniques are finely tweaked to produce the desired scenery. A pool’s boundary is especially important. There are a few standard edge treatments; however, the typical ‘gogan’ pattern and the application of large boundary borders is widely used.

Almost every vibrant Japanese koi garden includes several big stones mounted at the water line. These large smooth masses of rock can reach a weight of several tons. These require special engineering techniques that are not visible to the public but are equally important to your pet pond construction.

Aeration is the process of exposing your pond to the air. Koi garden aeration assures the right amount of oxygen in your koi pond water. Proper amount of aeration is crucial for koi wellness and also helps in avoiding algae.

A rubber water stop is a seal consisting of a ring for packing pistons or sealing a pipe joint. It is put into several kinds of concrete tubes that are used everywhere from swimming pools to artificial polar bear habitats at zoos to modern gardens. The modern day koi pond filter is not a sole piece of equipment; but it is a combination of different tools. A good koi pond filter should incorporate a water pump.

A catch basin is used in case you shut down your pond’s water pump. All of the excess water that is flowing upstream in your koi garden will eventually come down towards the lowest point in your pond. This could cause deluging and other unwanted side effects. A catch basin is used when such situation takes place. Koi pond biological filtration is another method of prevention of accumulating pond waste products.

A water garden pump is an important tool for koi pond construction. The most popular koi gardens in Japan are around one hundred years old and are made primarily of soil. Such ponds are nurtured by canals, streams and rivers. This koi pond construction is not feasible for most backyard koi owners who need to run fresh water pumps to operate a self-possessed system.

Beautifying Your Home With Fish Tanks and Their Inhabitants

Fish tanks can add to the ambiance of your home. If you have children, they will most definitely enjoy this addition to your household. If you have kids, having pets can be both exciting and a useful education tool. They will learn to clean and feed them, which is essential to helping teach your children to be responsible.

Water features come in a variety of styles and designs. The different types of creatures living inside will fascinate your children. Your adult guests will more than likely take a particular interest in your new design addition as well.

Fish can create a calming air within a room, not to mention add to its decor too. When you have them, there are a number of task you’ll be responsible for. Contact your local pet store, as they will be able to properly advise as to how best to set up your new unit. There are certain materials that are highly toxic to sea life. Pet stores sell numerous safe decorative items that you can add to their habitat which help make it attractive and be useful to the inhabitants as well.

When picking an aquatic feature, keep in mind your home’s interior design. If you prefer colors that pop and are eye catching, then it is best to have one that is in keeping with this style. Choose creatures that are unique and colorful and will add to your home’s decor. If you prefer a style that is more muted, simple, then your unit should also be similar in design.

The combination of fish and water help to make a tranquil effect. In addition, an eye-catching piece can make for an interesting conversational starter for both adults and certainly children. Water features are usually incorporated into an interior designer’s vision when decorating a room. In fact a rather large section of your home can be sectioned off to house a tank that is of a considerable size. This can really give a room a more glamorous look.

Fish in an office create a soothing, serene air to a room. A great stress reliever! They are an ideal attraction for a doctor’s office, particularly a pediatrician. These swimming friends will certainly ease a worried child’s mind! It is not unusual to see large-style units in corporate offices as they can create a rich, desirable look, a true sign of success/money!

There a few factors one should consider before getting a tank. Make certain you have a proper filtration system, as this will ensure the water is continually oxygenated-a must to maintain healthy animals. Also, the fish must be properly fed and the temperature kept at an ideal rate. Make certain you have installed the correct lighting as this can only help keep the inhabitants from becoming finicky.

Having one that is unique in design can be a very interesting and stylish addition to both your home and or office. Fish can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and not to mention colors. Feng shui states that goldfish, in particular, can signal money and success, a definite must-have for any business. At home, choose species that signal serenity, peace and love, as the combination in turn will be an ideal asset to your once humble abode.

A Personal Review Of The Riccar Upright Vacuum Cleaner

I just bought an upright Riccar vacuum cleaner – the Radiance – and it’s the best vacuum cleaner I’ve ever had. It was an expensive purchase but I think it’s worth every penny and I can’t fault it. However, I recently met someone who bought a Riccar upright vacuum a few years back and they told me about the problems they had after using it on damp carpet.

I had an Electrolux vacuum cleaner and I loved it. It faithfully cleaned my floors and carpets for over 8 years before dying of old age. At first I thought I’d buy another Electrolux – I think it was the Oxygen – anyhow, I started reading some vacuum cleaner reviews online and found myself getting very confused. Some reviews of the Electrolux vacuum cleaner were complementary while others derided it. I then started looking at other brands, which was a bad idea, as I just got even more confused. Eventually, I went to our local vacuum retailer and I’m really glad I did.

It was in the store that I first came across the Riccar vacuum cleaner. I’d never heard of it before but the man in the store told me that Riccar don’t advertise that much and its vacuums are more or less sold by word of mouth. Anyhow, he demonstrated the Riccar Radiance upright and I was amazed at how powerful it was. I was also able to try out the Electrolux vacuum cleaner. While it was good, I really preferred the cleaning power and ease of use of the Riccar.

Furthermore, the salesman told me that Riccar vacuum cleaners are built to last. He showed me the metal components of the vacuum and I was able to compare it to the Electrolux. I was amazed at how much metal is used in the making of the vacuum (and how little is used in other brands). The vacuum comes with a reinforced metal pedal, a stainless steel bottom plate, metal wand and even a polished metal cord hook!

Other features that impressed me were the indicator lights telling you when the bag is full, when to change the filter and when the brushroll gets jammed. It’s also comes with cute LED headlights.

As you’d expect the Radiance comes with a HEPA filter, however, the filtering is further improved because the filter is sealed.

But without doubt the most impressive thing about the Radiance is its motors, 2 to be precise. They work synchronously and it’s called the Tandem Air System. One is a high-velocity motor placed right above the head so you great tremendous suction. The other is placed above the other and it provides the suction for the onboard tools and helps with the high efficiency filtration system.

I’ve now been using the vacuum for several weeks and it’s been great. I have both hardwood and carpeted floors. With my old Electrolux vacuum cleaner I would have to manually adjust the brushroll but the Riccar vacuum is self-adjusting, which makes cleaning my floors a lot easier. The onboard tools are easy to use and snap on and off easily. All in all, I’m delighted with it and find it very hard to find fault with it.

However, recently I was playing tennis with an acquaintance and afterwards we started talking about vacuums cleaners – as you do – and when I told them I bought and loved my Riccar they told me they had bought one several years ago and it was a mistake and ended up being a pile of expensive junk. Apparently, they used it on carpets that had just been washed and were still damp. Afterwards they left it on the carpet. Anyhow, a day or two later the axel between the rear wheels rusted and pretty soon they couldn’t push it along. They tried to complain and get their money back but the company told them they had ‘abused’ the vacuum and told them the warranty was void. I’ve made a note never to go anywhere near water with mine.

I’m really happy with my Riccar vacuum cleaner and think the build quality, materials and suction power make it one of the best vacuum cleaners you can buy, even if it is also one of the most expensive.

What Is the Best Vacuum Cleaner for Your Individual Needs?

There is no one best vacuum cleaner for all circumstances. To claim there is would be like saying everyone should drive a certain luxury sedan, or small economy car. Someone who needs to haul 6 kids doesn’t need the same vehicle as someone who hauls 4×8 sheets of wallboard. My needs and your needs may not be the same. Some people just want to clean rugs and carpets, others have bare floors, and some people want to vacuum the curtains and wood trim, what we call “above the floor cleaning”. Some of the new frieze and shag carpet is too long for many vacuums and some of the newest high yarn count carpets (like Dupont Silk and Shaw Caress) are very soft & comfortable to walk on but very difficult to push most vacuums on. Some people have dust allergies and need superior filtration. Some people need a vacuum light enough to carry up and down stairs, others need one that’s very easy to push. At Byers Vacuum we spend some time asking questions before we recommend a particular vacuum. Here are some of the questions you should ask yourself: What surfaces do you want to clean? If carpets, how long? Bare floor? Above the floor? Do you have area rugs with fringes? Carpeted stairs? Does anyone in the household have dust allergies? Are you picking up long hair that gets wrapped around the brush? How many hours a year will it be used? How many years do you want it to last? Do you want to buy American? Most vacuums, including Hoover, Eureka, Dirt Devil, Bissell, and Dyson, are made in China, S. Korea, Malaysia, or Mexico. If you have the answers to these questions, you are ready to determine what vacuum is “best” for you.

A straight suction canister is good for bare floors and above the floor. A canister with a power nozzle allows you to also clean carpet. Some power nozzles will height adjust for the new friezes and shags, some won’t. The same is true of uprights: some will height adjust for friezes and shags, some won’t. The new extra soft carpets need the ability to reduce suction (one company drilled a bunch of holes in their nozzle to bleed suction). And some uprights have attachments that work well for above the floor cleaning, but some have none, or they don’t work very well. Most uprights cannot turn off the brush separately from the motor, but a few can. This feature allows you to vacuum a bare floor without scattering dirt all over. Also, if you have rugs with fringes, or fragile antique rugs, you might want to be able to turn the brush off. Most canisters with power nozzles allow you to turn off the brush. On the uprights that can turn the brush off, some do it by a lever on the nozzle, others have 2 motors with a switch right on the handle which allows you to turn the brush motor on & off with a flip of your finger, rather than bending over, — much more convenient when doing fringes.

Some uprights, like the Orecks and SupraLites, are very light. This makes them very easy to carry from one level to another or to transport back and forth in a cleaning business. Other machines, like newer Kirbys and certain older Hoovers, are truly self-propelled, where they have a transmission that runs the vacuum in both forward and reverse as you push and pull on the handle. These can be operated with one finger, but are heavy to carry up and down stairs.

Of course, aside from making sure the vacuum will work on the surfaces you need to clean, some vacuums filter better than others. Don’t believe that all “HEPA” filters are the same. In Europe a product claiming HEPA must meet the standard. In the US, you can put a filter that tested HEPA at 10CFM on a vacuum that exhausts air at 90 CFM and blows dirt right through the filter. Or a vacuum may have allow air out other holes so it doesn’t go thr the filter, but it van still claim it has a HEPA filter. From what I’ve read from people who tested vacuums with a laser particle counter (if you have severe dust allergies, you want it to have been tested at 0.3 microns or less) the Miele and Nilfisk have the best filtration. However, one test using imitation bags and filters in a Miele reported a measurable dust emission. So it isn’t just that the vacuum is well sealed and gasketed, it’s the quality of the bags & filters. A typical micro-lined bag will catch most of the dirt down to 5 microns, but it’s not just the bag or filter you need to be concerned with. Bagless machines usually leak a lot more dust (in spite of their “HEPA” filters or cyclone technology), plus you spread a lot of dust when you empty the container. Even if you don’t have dust allergies, you may find if you compare the cost of bags to the cost of filters for most bagless, that the bagged vacuum is more economical and less messy. Replacing a bag usually takes less than a minute and the result is a brand-new primary filter without having to wash and wait for bagless filters to dry, which can take up to a day. In my opinion, the best thing about a bagless is that you can watch the dirt spin.

Some vacuums have metal brushrolls with slide-in replaceable bristles, which in heavy use is more economical and much more durable around long hair. Plastic brushes can melt if hair gets up in the ends. Some are better shielded from hair than others. Another thing to watch out for is plastic axles, rather than metal. These wear out quickly and the wheel falls off. Some vacuums are much more durable than others. Some are more comfortable to use for different people. The only way to know for sure is to try them out. My recommendation is to buy a vacuum from a local vacuum store that services what they sell, can show you the quality differences, lets you try the vacuum on different surfaces, and will let you return it if it doesn’t work well on your carpet. If you have a problem carpet, such as shag, or the new soft carpets, bring in a left over piece to try vacuums on, so you can see how easily each type of vacuum will work on your carpet. They can advise you on the durability of different machines, as well as parts availability.

Some vacuums in chain stores come with longer than average warranties, but there may not be anyone in your market to service it (Dyson & Shark come to mind). So I advise checking to see if a machine can be serviced locally, in warranty or after, before you buy. You may find many brands can be serviced, but not under warranty, in your market. And some may not be serviceable at all.

In conclusion, you can see that there is no one “best” vacuum for everyone. And a number of brands might serve your needs. I personally like the Riccar onboard tool uprights and also their lightweight uprights, but for canisters, I prefer Miele’s German-made models. The German Sebos are also very nice. And if you lived in a town where the only brand you could get repaired was a Hoover, you should probably try to find the best Hoover for your needs, in spite of the fact that they are now owned by the Chinese, and are no longer made in the USA (since I originally wrote this, Hoover has gotten to the point where they don’t offer very many parts for machines, especially if it’s more than 2 or 3 years old, so this advice may no longer be as valid as it was). If you’re just starting out, living in a small apartment, with no allergies, no children, and no pets, a cheap discount store model might be quite adequate. It’s amazing how much longer a vacuum lasts if you only have 500 sf of carpet to clean, rather than 3000.

Can We Build a Robotic Oil Change System?

The other day, I was talking with an acquaintance. He is working on his Management in Engineering Degree amongst other things. After talking with him briefly about the mobile oil change business, it occurred to me that maybe someone needs to create an Oil Change Robot system to change oil in car fleets such as rent-a-cars, truck fleets, GSA car lots, and US Military vehicles to save money on training, logistical costs, and Army, Navy, Marine, and Air Force mechanics. Okay so, let’s talk, I mean is this even possible?

Why sure it is, in fact one oil company has already designed a robotic re-fueling system, so you can just pull up to the pump, and the system opens the little door, unscrews the gas cap, aligns it’s arm, puts in the nozzle and then pumps. When completed, it removes the nozzle, screws back on the gas cap, and gently closes the door, and you are done. Today, you would just hold up your iPhone and wave it over the payment system, and you are paid, fueled, and basically good to go right? Sure, why not.

Indeed, out think tank was discussing this the other day, as such a system could be used to refuel robotic drones, meaning no people would be needed for the flight-line in some foreign country to refuel, or tie down the aircraft, robotic systems would do all the work. Too far-fetched you say, baloney, even Google has a self-driving robotic car now. Yes, it did get into an accident, but guess what? It was the other cars fault – the one driven by a human!

You may think this is silly for a mobile oil change rig, but I think it’s beautiful and having been in the car washing business, I can tell you that it’s mostly robotic using robotic sensors such as sonar, electronic eyes, optical flow sensors, and infrared systems in a few cases. In the case of a fleet of vehicles, it’s simple, all the vehicles are unlocked, and everything is in the same place, the oil change robot can just drive along and do the vehicles without human labor, no more worries about health-care costs, pensions, workmen’s comp, training, scheduling, human resources, work place injuries, strikes, or shortages of qualified technicians you see?

The original systems might be costly at first, but the number of companies, agencies, militaries, and fleet owners that would buy them could generate significant advantages in economies of scale to mass produce these systems. So, why not I ask? Please consider all this.

Four Fantastic Wood Floor Sanding Truths

Wood floor sanding is a process steeped in history. While there are many of the same ideals and practices, the provision has been transformed in the last decade. If you are considering employing the help of a wood floor sanding specialist, then it is important that you are aware of the truths in relation to the process. This will enable you to make an informed decision. Furthermore, it will allow you a deep appreciation of this remarkable service.

The first truth deals with the sanding process. Traditional floor sanding created a lot of dust. As the floor was sanded, the particles were thrown into the air. These landed far and wide and were not just contained to the area you were working in. The dust travelled and settled which meant a lot of time was needed to clean up after the process was completed. Dustless sanding machinery has revolutionised this process. As a virtually dust-free service, it is now much simpler and less messy to get your wood floor sanded. The particles and dust are removed through a filtration system. This allows the sander better vision during the sanding process. Furthermore, it vastly reduces the clear up needed after the floor sanding process.

The second truth deals with the assumption that companies are tied to products and machinery. The best-served professionals offer independent specialist services. This means that they work independently and so are therefore not tied to any franchises or affiliates. The benefit of this is that they are not dictated to in relation to what equipment and products they use. This allows them the opportunity to fully tailor their services for individual jobs to offer a superior, personalised finish.

The third truth deals with the thought that wooden floors can be sanded over and over again. Your chosen professional will be equipped with the experience and knowledge to take off only what they need to during the sanding process. Taking off too much will reduce the number of times that a wood floor can be restored. Taking off too little will leave you with dents, damage and unsightly areas. Neither of which is a good reflection of this professional service. Generally, there is a limit to the number of times you can get your wood floor sanded. However, this is dictated to by a number of factors. All of which your chosen professional will be able to offer tailored advice about.

The fourth truth deals with the assumption that it is a very expensive process. All of the machinery, products, techniques and process have come on so much. This has made the process a very cost-effective one. You are getting so much for your money and getting the opportunity to get the most from your beautiful wood floor. It is likely that once you have selected a reputable, local specialist that you will become a customer for life and one where you feel supported in relation to information and advice in relation to maintenance and cleaning of your wood floors.

It is clearly evident from the above information that the floor sanding process has evolved over recent years for the better. This timeless trade offers an incredible insight into a process that skilfully restores one of the most popular flooring types. This information has been put together in order to guide you through making an informed decision when the time comes to seek the help of a floor sanding professional.

Amega Global’s AM Water Actify – Red Bull of Water Ionizers


A micro-clustered (6x smaller in molecules), zero point energized, ionized, anti-oxidant, alkaline hydrating technological WUNDERKIND! Why is the AM Water Actify the ‘Red Bull’ of water ionizers? As opposed to any other water ionizer on the market this one uses Amized Fusion Technology and Zero Point Energy to activate the H2O.


Everyone knows that water is an essential part of a healthy life.Next to the air we breathe water is the most essential component to life. Water makes up 2/3 of the weight of the human body. The brain is 75% water, the blood is 83% water, bones are 22% water, muscles are 75% water and the lungs are 90% water. Water does more than sustain life. Water is essential to the functioning of every single cell and organ system in the human body. It can actually improve our health, our fitness, and even our appearance.


Makes up the majority of every cell in our body.

Is the biggest part of our blood and lymph systems.

Carries food and oxygen to the cells and carries waste away.

Helps flush our kidneys to get rid of toxic substances.

Helps balance our electrolytes, which helps to control our blood pressure.

Helps to moisten our eyes, mouth, and nasal passages.

Helps to keep the body cool when it is hot and insulates the body from the cold.

Acts as a shock absorber to cushion the body’s organs.

Helps lubricate joints and is part of your blood, sweat, tears, and saliva.

Can provide many of the trace minerals that our bodies need.


The Amega AM water system, using innovative AMized Fusion Technology, is able to transform the unstructured water molecule back to its original crystalline structure, thus bringing out the life force energy.


Step 1 – Ceramic Filtration

The hollow porous ceramic filter in the AM Water System is primarily for bacterial removal. It filters particles from water but leaves oxygen and mineral contents unchanged.

Step 2 – Carbon Treatment Purification

Inside the AM Water System is an activated pressed carbon-block filter. This carbon block effectively reduces:

Chlorine taste and odor.

Particulates, improving clarity.

More than 140 possible health-effect contaminants, including lead and mercury.

Activation Increases the Carbon Surface. Amega Global “activates” the carbon through a special process that creates thousands of pores. This increases the surface area available to attract contaminants. The carbon is then pressed together to create a fixed carbon block. This increased surface area increases the ability of the filter to attract and trap carbon-based contaminants as water passes through the block. Various other organic contaminants also tend to adhere to the porous surface, so the carbon-block filter acts as a magnet for contaminants.

Step 3 – Vitalization

The water in the AM Water system passes through a special vitalizer which transforms the broken molecular structure to its original life-giving super moisturizing state. Crystalline structured.


AM Water Helps Maintain Blood Volume which maintains your energy. Proper hydration improves your concentration and reaction time, especially during exercise.

AM Water Helps Protect Against a Variety of Ailments including colds, constipation, and urinary tract infections.

AM Water has a Smaller Water Cluster making it possess a superior hydrating capability, greatly increasing nutrient delivery. It easily penetrates your body’s cells.

AM Water is Oxygenated. AM water carries more oxygen throughout your body containing 20-50% more oxygen than regular water.

AM Water has an Optimal Ph Level. Ph measures the acidity and alkalinity of water. 1.0 – 7.0 is acidic while 7.0 – 14.0 is alkaline. The optimal range of Ph in your body is from 7.2 – 7.6, slightly alkaline. All the cells that make up your body are slightly alkaline and must stay that way in order for you to be healthy and alive.

AM Water has Anti-Oxidation Power. AM water has powerful anti-oxidant properties that are reactive and neutralize highly unstable substances called free radicals that cause oxidation. Anti-oxidation is the basis for all anti-aging therapies and can greatly reduce the development of many chronic diseases.


2 year warranty on all parts and labor.

30 day money back guarantee. Be sure to return the warranty card within 10 days of purchase to activate the warranty.

The Pros and Cons of the Electric Dental Hand Piece

Pros and cons are numerous with the electric dental drill as compared to the pneumatic or air driven hand piece. Some of the advantages are of the electric drills are their smooth operation, low noise level, and continuous torque.

The doctors that I have talked to have sited the following advantages for the electric dental drill. Electric drills offer more torque with less noise and vibration. They also offer a greater range of speeds with a forward and reverse option. These drills also offer greater flexibility with the proper attachments. Most doctors report a smoother more accurate reduction of dentin.

The same doctors site these disadvantages. They are larger and heavier which can effect user fatigue. They are much more expensive to purchase and repair than the traditional air drill. Some have electric drill repair costs exceeding $600.00 per unit. They do require a learning curve to use properly. There are also infection control issues, we will address these issues in more detail below.

Pneumatic or Air driven high-speed drills have typical speeds up to 400,000 rpm. Traditional low-speed pneumatic motor drills have maximum speeds up to 40,000 rpm. Since these motors run to 40,000 rpm, most manufacturers do not like to market them as high-speed drills when referring to electric drills, although they are marketed and sold for gross reduction.

Note: The 1:5 attachment provides a speed range of 5,000 to 200,000 rpm. Most doctors are referring to this as a high-speed and the 1:1 as a low speed.

When drilling dentin with a traditional high-speed hand piece the rpm will reduce to about 200,000 rpm due to the torque reduction. The electric hand piece will experience very little loss of torque and continues at about 200,000 rpm.

So far, most electric hand pieces do not meet the some infection control requirements. There are still some micro-motors that can’t withstand the autoclave. The housing is not the problem but the internal parts may not withstand the process.

When purchasing a new unit you may want to make sure that the manufacturer has addressed dental unit waterline (DUWL) asepsis. Service procedures to improve the quality of water used in dental treatment are available. Recommended methods include self-contained water systems with a filtration system, and chemical treatment. Ask about replacement parts for your electric hand piece repair purposes.

Note: If you use tap, or distilled water with <500 CFU/mL of bacteria in a self-contained water system you may not eliminate all bacterial contamination in your water treatment. Bio-films in the water must be controlled.

Chemical germicides are the best solution for bio-film contamination. Check with the manufacturer to make sure that this issue has been fully addressed.
