amperage
How do you keep the amperage up while not boiling the water. At 40 amps I get nice volume until it starts to perkulate.

RE: amperage
Basically, you need to limit your current at some point. As current flows your solution starts heating up. Then more current flows which heats the solution more. This is a positive feedback situation that will keep on going unless you have a method of pegging the current. That's the nature of your problem.

If you bought your device, you should get with the company that built it. But barring some fancy electronics to provide your current limiting, you can decrease the amount of electrolyte until you don't have your solution boiling when you use it.

RE: amperage
i use a mix of 50-50 distilled white vinegar and distilled water for my mix. it produces a solid 2.5 to 3.0 lpm flow at 6-7 amps load using an 11a series magdrive hho gen. its a smooth runner. i dont play with soda or any of the other stuff. dont want to melt anything. of course i'm kinda chicken @#@# when it comes to the electrical side of things. what solution do you use? and what system? just curious.

RE: amperage
That's almost hard to believe. Is this info verified by yourself, or is that what came with the instructions?
