Tulsa Calibration : Very Productive

Nick: It’s a good day here at Thrive 15, and we’re going to have a little podcast action today. I’m thinking we’re going to talk about some calibration stuff, Tulsa Calibration stuff. Precision Calibrations, and we’re located in Claremore, Oklahoma. We’ve got a little lab set up there, and do quite a bit of business out of there. Have a lot of good customers we appreciate very much. How you doing today?

Speaker 2: Hello, I’m doing just fine. Thank you very much. Like Nick said, we’re here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We do all kind of calibrations in Tulsa. We spoke last week a little bit about part of our scope, I think we’re going to stay pretty strong on all sorts of calibrations for right now. You know, man, I just can’t believe the weather today. Can you?

Nick: It’s been a great day. This has been a great day, very productive. There’s good people right now that we’ve been interfacing with, met with some new people today, a new customer, very excited about that. This guy was very excited to meet us, and hire us on. It’s a good thing.

Speaker 2: I have an issue at the house that I think ties into this right now.

Nick: Okay.

Speaker 2: I think this is the fourth year I’ve owned my house.

Nick: Okay.

Speaker 2: I got a pool. It keeps kicking my butt, and so I thought to myself, “Who could help me figure out my pool?” You know what popped into my mind? Tulsa Precision Calibrations.

Nick: I think that’s very appropriate.

Speaker 2: I was like, “Man, there’s something wrong with the PH, and I’m pretty sure that in Tulsa Calibration we calibrate PH meters.”

Nick: In fact they do. In fact we do. We do. As a matter of fact, PH probes in Tulsa and Claremore, these are things that we can do at Precision Calibrations right there in our lab. Right there we can take care of that thing. I think it’s important that figure out that problem with your pool because PH has got to be right. You get in the pool, what’s it do to your skin? What’s it do to your eyes? I don’t know, it’s got to have some effect on your body. Who knows? Maybe it’s good for your skin, I don’t know. What’s the PH got to be? Do you even know?

Speaker 2: Yeah, ideals between four and seven.

Nick: Okay. Four and seven is what the PH is, and so if it’s a really high PH, what is that, like an acid? No, it’s a base, I don’t know, there’s something else about …

Speaker 2: The higher the PH goes, the less chlorine, the less free chlorine that’s available.

Nick: Okay. Okay.

Speaker 2: Which starts all kinds of bad stuff, so I got to thinking …

Nick: Algae.

Speaker 2: Algae, all kind of bacteria. I got to thinking, “Man, my chlorine generator is not working quite right.”

Nick: You got a chlorine generator, and this thing like what? Produces chlorine, I guess, or something Tulsa Calibration ?

Speaker 2: Yeah. Yeah. It’s pretty cool. It’s kind of like some of the things we deal with at Precision Calibrations. This thing, it’s called a chlorinator, so it’s a saltwater system. It’s got a cell in it that runs water all the way … It’s constantly running water through it with salt.

Nick: Right.

Speaker 2: Why am I muted?

Nick: Is that you up there?

Speaker 2: There we go. I wasn’t talking, I guess, close enough into the mic. What the hell?

Nick: I don’t know.

Speaker 2: Test.

Nick: Are you on number one or number two? I’m looking like I’m maybe on number one.

Speaker 2: You’re on number one Tulsa Calibration.

Nick: Yeah. You better get a little closer to the mic.

Speaker 2: I think we put both of these on number one last time.

Nick: I don’t know. There’s two, and there’s one.

Speaker 2: Can you hear me better now?

Nick: I see it’s registering on the graph there, so it must be that it’s working. Try it again.

Speaker 2: I think you might be registering.

Nick: What the heck?

Speaker 2: Yeah, because I can see …

Nick: I also notice my little … Hold on square over here. I notice my little squares got … And yours is empty. I don’t know.

Speaker 2: Let me try something real quick.

Nick: Okay.

Speaker 2: Because I remember when we came in here last time actually …

Nick: All right. Keep it going because we’re still throwing some words out there, and so we’re just going to keep on talking about what we’re doing here today.

Speaker 2: We’ll have to change this after this podcast.

Nick: This weather outside has been so nice today, so we’re talking about the pool. I can’t wait until we can start jumping in that pool, man, because it’s going to be really nice. Get the barbecue going, hanging out there, I’m sure we can talk about some calibrations, I don’t know. We just love it so much, just talking about calibrations. That’s just every day stuff.

Speaker 2: Talking about Tulsa Calibration , the reason I got on this subject was that chlorinator, it has an electric signal that goes through it, and it applies a specific voltage, and if that voltage isn’t right, then it doesn’t … It does not … See, I’m picking up.

Nick: No, you’re good.

Speaker 2: I’m picking up on yours. That’s what it is.

Nick: I don’t know.

Speaker 2: This is my track down here, and it’s not … I know what it is. We both need to be on Scarlet One.

Nick: That’s too bad.

Speaker 2: That’s all right, it’ll at least pick up on yours.

Nick: Yeah. Whoever’s typing this up might have a little bit of struggle with yours, but we’re halfway through this one.

Speaker 2: Do you know it was uncalibrated?

Nick: Okay.

Speaker 2: Working at Tulsa Precision Calibrations, I decided I would check that out. I got the old manual out, and was looking at it, and hydrochloric acid is your best friend.

Nick: Really?

Speaker 2: Really, yeah. Kind of like we do with some of the Tulsa Calibration , some of the things we clean to make sure that we got a good tip, a good signal being able to be read and transmit it. I took that unit off of that chlorinator, and I got me a bottle of hydrochloric acid, and I dipped it in there. It’s got fans on it, like a heat sync almost, you know those blades? It looked a lot similar to that, and soaked it in that hydrochloric acid for quite a while, and then I hooked it all back up, and wouldn’t you know, my pool waters clear now.

Nick: Wow! That’s great. It’s amazing what a little acid will do for you. I remember back in the day acid was a whole different topic. Yeah, you know, what youngsters did in those days, that was the days, though. We probably have some pretty interesting conversations right now if we were referring to that acid right now Tulsa Calibration.

Speaker 2: Hydrochloric acid, it’s bad stuff.

Nick: I think they actually use hydrochloric acid when they’re making meth these days, as well, so people are snorting that stuff up their nose. I don’t know. That’s bad deal.

Speaker 2: Those people need to come see us at Tulsa Precision Calibrations so we can recalibrate their logic of thinking because that is … I wouldn’t want hydrochloric acid in my body.

Nick: No.

Speaker 2: You should have seen what it did to the stuff I was using on that chlorinator.

Nick: Yeah, I bet it’s bad. It’s bad. It’s not good for your teeth either. There’s people that are smoking it, they’re losing all their front teeth and everything. It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s too bad.

Speaker 2: Man, that makes me think. If you did do that, and you lost your teeth, how do you eat an apple? Man, do you get a knife?

Nick: Heaven forbid.

Speaker 2: Cut it into little pieces? Do you … It’s applesauce, that’s what it is.

Nick: Yep.

Speaker 2: You got eat applesauce from now on.

Nick: Yeah. Yeah, you got to grind that stuff up, man, and put in a blender and probably suck it through a straw, I guess, instead of eating it like baby food or something. Yeah. Yeah, like baby food. Right on. That’s what they do Tulsa Calibration.

Speaker 2: What kind of Precision tools are you using right now? I know you got a project going on there at your house. I know you’re working on the bus-mobile to the future. I just couldn’t help but think, you got to be using some pretty handy tools out there. Anything that Precision Calibrations … Anything you need calibrated in Tulsa Oklahoma to help do that?

Nick: Yeah, I don’t know. There are some items probably that could be calibrated. I’ve got this … I’m using this multi-function screwdriver, it’s part of one of my handy tools during the day.

Speaker 2: Are you calibrating your hand?

Nick: Yeah. There’s a certain motion that you do have to maintain when you’re removing the screws or tightening the screws, so there’s definitely some precision involved sometimes in that. My wife has a hard time with it, I know. She’s trying to use this thing and just can’t get it on the screw just right, and so it slips off and she’s busting her knuckle, and just crying and moaning about it and stuff. She’s a good hand. I appreciate her coming out and helping me out and stuff with that. Yeah, not a lot of calibrations going on at the time, although I do think about it. I’m sitting out there working on this bus, and I think about all the calibrations that I probably could be doing instead of working on the bus.

Anyway, I don’t know, I just try to have some personal life. I try to make my life more meaningful than just calibrations, because Tulsa Calibration , and even Claremore Calibrations, you just got to have a life sometimes. Anyway, yeah, the bus is coming along really good. It sound like your pools making some headway, which is really good, I’m glad to hear that, man. So the waters nice and clear. This summer you’re going to be able to get out there and do some swimming and stuff. You got any plans for any parties or anything this summer?

Speaker 2: Well, man, the water is very clear, but you know what’s not clear?

Nick: What’s not clear?

Speaker 2: The bottom of the pool is not clear.

Nick: You need to what? Vacuum it or something?

Speaker 2: I do need to vacuum it, and it’s on my agenda, but now I got the whole … The water is perfect, so I wanted to get it under control, because there was so many microorganisms and it was just crazy, because you know I lost my cover this winter Tulsa Calibration.

Nick: Right. Right. You can’t just more hydrochloric acid or what? No? It’s got to be vacuum it out, like leaves and stuff?

Speaker 2: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. See, the water wasn’t clear because the Ph wasn’t right. The Ph wasn’t right because there was too many organisms in the water and even though there was free chlorine in the water, it wasn’t able to attack the chlorine because it was attacking the inhibitors of the rain water; much like rust does. I’ve learned a lot about this recently.

Nick: Right on. Okay. So we’ve got a visitor here, and what’s up, man?

Speaker 2: I just called him. I just called him.

Nick: Okay.

Speaker 2: We’ve got about 15 seconds left on this, but what we notice …

Nick: Yeah, but we’re still working on it.

Speaker 2: … While we’re podcasting is I made a mistake. I’m pretty sure I know what happened. I assigned this one to one and I assigned this one to two. I’m pretty sure this was assigned to one as well. Now you can see I’m not doing anything. We just went through … We figured we’d go through it for 10 minutes.  [crosstalk 00:10:04]. Then I just want to make sure that this doesn’t get in that space.

Nick: Because some kind of technical effects going on here and got to get this straightened out because both microphones aren’t working, so we got the expert in here now to help us out with this, fixing it for us. We’re going to wrap this one up today. It’s been good chatting with you guys. I think we’re going to have somebody take a look at this and tell us Tulsa Calibration.
