Things to Think About
THE SOLUTION COLOR
When making colloidal silver, no other issue presents more debate than what constitutes the correct color. Most support yellow or a golden yellow as the ideal color, but some suggest that a clear solution is preferred. Others argue that a white/cloudy solution is better…..BUT…
When the solution rises over 10ppm, the solution will turn yellow when using distilled water. The yellow color has no adverse effects nor different taste.
WHEN USING DISTILLED WATER …
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO PURCHASE A TDS METER WHICH WILL GIVE YOU INSTANT READINGS, PURCHASE A LASER PEN AND TAKE YOUR GLASS WITH DISTILLED WATER INTO A VERY DARK SPOT, PREFERABLY A CLOSET AND SHINE THE LASER DOWN THROUGH THE WATER AND NOTE THE INTENSITY OF THE BEAM SHINING THROUGH. THEN, AFTER GENERATING YOUR SILVER, TAKE THAT GLASS OF WATER TO THE CLOSET AND SHINE THE LASER THROUGH IT AGAIN AND SEE THE INTENSITY OF THE BEAM NOW. THE HEAVIER OR BRIGHTER BEAM MEANS THE SILVER IS PRESENT IN THE WATER. THIS DISPLAYS THE LASER REFLECTING OFF THE SILVER PARTICLES IN THE WATER
( I can supply a laser pen for $7 )
(or you can buy the TDS meter but be sure to test water before processing if you don’t use distilled water. Distilled water is 0ppm)
After some experimentation, by molding the rods to be 1/2 inch apart from one another I was able to develope 6ppm in 20 minutes.
I will also be replacing the 18 vdc power supply with 24v 1amp, and that will speed the process greatly also. Always filter solution with a coffee filter to remove any solids and wipe the residue from the rods after processing. Hold the electrode itself when wiping as to not pull out of the connector.
When mounting or dismounting the electrodes, always hold by the connector.
If you purchase a unit, I can give you time frames for your desired ppm with 12oz of distilled water.
It is advisable to use the 24v power supply which simplifies the process.
