The water can be evaporated and the sediment once dry goes right to the land fill.

Thanks Jack, I may never have another bowl of chilli again!

I didn't see any beans floating in that vat, so it's definitely NOT chili

Native, I'd write it up but many others have already done so--and far better than I could. To answer your questions specifically, there are two wires. One goes to the radiator shell from the negative lead of the battery charger (making it the anode) and the other goes from the positive lead to a series of scrap steel sheets around the sides of the tub (making them the cathode). 12 volts at under 10 amps will do the trick. As far as how much baking soda to use, it doesn't need to be real percise. I just dumped a small box of baking soda in the tub and plugged it in. A word of caution; don't reverse the polarity. If you do your part will become sacrifiicial.

Thank you!


Wow, the scrp sheets are not visible in the picture. I am guessing the scrap sheets get quite messed up in the process.


I just gotta try this some time I have time to burn.


I am assuming it is a tub dedicated to being used as an electrolysis vat. Am I correct?




Yeah, chili with beans ... y'all.
