Water B Gone sucks water out of fuel tanks
Crystals that absorb up to 500 times their own weight in water and can be reused as many as 300 times are "the best product available for easily extracting water from fuel tanks," according to inventor Robert Hamilton, Merced, Cal.
Water-B-Gone crystals are transparent and not much bigger than rock salt. But when immersed in water, they swell up to the size of a big man's fingernail. When placed in open air, they'll shrink back down to hard, tiny crystals ready to be used again.
"One teaspoon can absorb a quart of water quickly and cleanly," says Hamilton. He notes that there are a couple ways to use the product to clean up diesel fuel, gasoline, or oil. "You can add Water-B-Gone crystals directly to fuel and then strain the inflated crystals out. Or, you can use the crystals inside absorbent bags. We make small bags with crystals already inside. The bag is lowered into the contaminated tank and left for about 45 min. You keep adding bags until they no longer swell up with water. Then, you can dry the crystals out for use at another time."
Water-B-Gone sells for $2.99 per ready-to-use absorbent bag, or $25 per pound for the raw product. The product is non-toxic and biodegradable in sunlight.
