    I am in process of cooking up some home-brew plasma quench but was also thinking of adding a Zinc anode to my water table to help control the rust, but wondering if the currents from the plasma process would have an (adverse) effect. Thoughts?

    Rust problem? I don't have one I am using arm/hammer super washing soda. Only drawback is splashing /evaporation leaves a white powder residue Not a big deal wipes right off

    Same as above. Change the PH level to a point where rust is very very slow to develop. White residue washes off and a box of Sodium Bicarbonate is only a couple bucks.

    Is there a ratio to use when using the baking soda? How much per gallon of water?

    I used two boxes in my 4x4, probably overkill when I drain /clean I will try only one box..

    DSC09762.JPG DSC09761.JPG I thought there was someone asking about Green Cut couldn't find them in the forum, it might have been another site I was looking at. Thought I'd go ahead and let you guys know I've being very happy with this produce. I've had it in my table now since May of last year and have not had any problems with rust and I can leave my plate setting on the table too. The company is out of Canada ordered it though Airgas. In the first photo is a piece of plate I've had setting on the table ever since we put water and green cut in it. It was expensive but to me it was will worth it.
