Submersible pumps have been designed to pump clear water and not dirt or debris. In fact, dirt or debris could block the intake of the pumps causing the flow of water to be blocked. If the dirt or debris gets inside the pump, then it could damage its internal parts like the impeller, shaft seal etc.

Will wearing contact lens for a long time affect the eyes negatively?

Our cornea is an avascular tissue which means it an issue without any vessels. So it requires oxygen from the tear film in order to maintain its transparency. Wearing your contact lens for long hours or sleeping without removing the contact lens could cause corneal hypoxia where the cornea would swell up and eventually lower the vision. Wearing contact lenses for long periods of the tie could also lead to infection of the cornea called keratitis.

Is drinking coffee safe for a diabetic?

1 user answered

Pankaj Agarwal, Korba
User, Level 6 Contributor
Diabetes limits the metabolic rates in our body. Now we require an optimum metabolic rate in our body for the proper absorption of nutrients, carbohydrates, proteins etc. Coffee can also lower the metabolic rate in our body.

So if a diabetic who already has a low metabolic rate, drinks a lot of coffee it would lower his/her metabolic rates significantly. So it is ideal for a diabetic to control their coffee use. In fact, it would be better for them to switch to green tea from coffee since green tea is considered very beneficial to a diabetic.
