Water Dog Pulls Moisture Out Of Fuel
The Water Dog is designed to absorb water that collects on the bottom of fuel tanks. It's filled with a super absorbent polymer specially formulated to absorb and separate water from gasoline, diesel, and home heating oil. The absorbent is contained in a rip-stop nylon bag inside a heavy gauge plastic sleeve. It's attached by a clip to the fuel cap chain and lowered into the fuel tank by a nylon retrieval cord.
"Moisture can corrode tanks, clog fuel filters, and cause freeze-up problems. It's an especially big problem with farm equipment that isn't in constant use. The Water Dog eliminates the need to drain or pump out water, and the need to use fuel line de-icers," says Graham.
Models are available in several sizes. Water-holding capacity ranges from 5 oz. for small fuel tanks on outboard motors to 3 gal. for the largest storage tank model, which is the only model that's reuseable.
The Water Dog cell swells as it absorbs water so the diameter of the tank opening must be big enough to allow the expanded Water Dog to be removed when swollen to maximum size. The tank opening diameter must be 1 in. or more for the 5-oz. model and 6 in. or more for the 3-gal. model.
Prices range from $6.54 for the smallest 5-oz. model to $52.38 for the 3-gal. model, with a variety of other models available including a storage tank model designed for 300 or 500-gal. tanks and models for tractors, trucks, and combines.
