    While Rome distracted its people with 'games', sport still remains the great distraction. 'World Game', 20 20, Olympics, Formula 1, V8's, League, AFL. That's the men taken care of.

    Re: mixing tank ideas

    I'm happy with my processor but my wash tank is not efficient. It is now a cut down by 1/3, poly 205 litre drum raised 50mm on one edge with a drain outlet on the other side bottom.

    Re: Valve In a Plastic Barrel??

    Re: Allowing for purity

    Wayne,
    Before I change my formula which accounts for purity for both the base amount and the titration added extra, am I reading you right?

    What I do is:
    Base: 7/90 x 100 = 7.78g (or 8g rounded...

    Seanny,
    I've found a 12v bilge pump works best for me.
