having trouble finding electrolyte
it seems that lowes and sears do not have a product which is not a mix of several chamicals . there doesn't seem to be a 100% koh or naoh bottle.

what stores still carry the stuff we want?

(if theres nowhere to pick it up, i'd go for an online source if we've got one,
even if means paying a little shipping on there...too bad)

Roebic drain cleaner was previously available at Lowes. I'm not 100% sure of the spelling tho.

This is where I got my Koh. They sent it out quick and didn't take advantage of me on the shipping. They also carry Koh and Naoh.

Same place I got mine. Took a week to get here and cost me about $15.

thanks, it definitely looks good. am curious though , is it necessary to go for the finer "food grade" ? if there's anything that can be gained from a higher quality product, i'd get it

Higher quality often means less sludge in the bottom of your cell.

RE: having trouble finding electrolyte
Why don't you try this NCE thing...

They say it double the production with the same current so why bother with KOH.....

From jeffotto.com (Denis Lee's):

"New Non Caustic Electrolyte (NCE) product Introduced:

The new NCE has many advantages over the previously utilized potassium hydroxide (KOH) to include:

* Almost double gas production at the same current relative to KOH
* Non-corrosive to aluminum
* Eliminates the need to flush the cell
* Eliminates O-Ring deterioration
* Eliminates foaming problems
* Steady gas production"
