    this may sound stupid, but if you know of anyone that has an oil well they also have chloride water that is drawn off that well. they may not sell you the chloride, but i know that oil person will knows someone who will and i will be for less than 50 cents no questions asked

    Thanks Rick, I am glad you are back on the forum too. Should I ask for 32% and let them mix it?

    if it's in liquid form it probably wont be stronger than 32% (11.3333lbs/gal) wich is absolutely perfect, b

    i'm sure everyone has seen the chart,.....but i'll post it again :D lol

    EDIT: i forgot to add, that if it is a little weaker it is not a big deal, but make sure you adjust youre price a little bit acordingly, make sure you get yorueself a hydrometer so you can make a acurate assumption of the chemical's temps when you applie.

    it would work but you could only measure between ~~~~20-35% because of it's narrow window of measurement,

    here's one that i found,
    it measures specific gravity from 1.0(water) to 1.28 (~30%) and it's only $16

    i'll look at mine to see what it is.


    i couldnt find a graph so i made one, it shold hold true with any chloride, including sodium and magnesium......hope it's acurate lol

    i have it on my comp. so i can convert it over to weight by the gallon if you don't have a hydrometer

    the equasion i used is y=0.009x+.992
