Hi Paul,
        Well these yokes are supposed to be called Hydrometers, Hydro for water and meter for measure=Hydrometer. They become hydrometers when you can be sure they work. I am being sent out 2 of these yokes and I am told they are fairly reliable @ 4 euros each wackoold. Now I know you are going to saY that I may as well take them and fire them over the hedge. I have been advised to stay away from anything with colored balls, I once heard a barrack room joke about colored balls,It was neither racist nor renewable but totally unfit for forum consumption.But i live in hope.
  Meanwhile you would have a pretty good idea of what my bank is like.I get the impression that the readings will be off the scale at both ends because I am working with different types of batts,,of different compositions,of different AH,s. hysteria and this miracle has been going on for over 6 years.
 Maybe I would be better off sending the yokes back and continue believing :genuflecting . Fill em up with good old rain or distilled and live happily ever after, This science is getting me down. However, now that I am trying to pass myself off as a moderator,I have to show a scientific interest and tie myself in knots for the good of the cause.

I was picturing a carved wooden jobby that sits on the shoulders, like you would need for carrying two 25l containers of water needed to top 60 cells up. Wink

problem with a dehumidifier is that the condenser is metal, and the condensed water coming out can pick up free ions from that

(or that's what I've been told anyway)


if it is any good... I could save 20litres/day coming out of the freezers at work...

You got it first time Dave,
                     That carved wooden jobby is indeed my kind of science.
        Thanks for the offer Knighty,
                                   But I am a little far away  garden
