    Re: Wow What I Didn't Know About Sulfuric Acid

    not near as bad but still a mess is a can of keytite or a can of yellow primer for 10 mil tape.

    storing all spillables in a plastic container is a bonus.

        a few months ago, I started putting most of the liquids on the van in an action packer, and "anchored" it down with industrial velcro

        It's worked pretty well so far.

        I would be sellin squishies at the Quickie-Mart for a living if I had another major loss right now.

        This was an expensive lesson to learn for you guys, hopefully future lessons will be cheaper.

          Sounds to me like this stuff, aint worth stocking, & may be much cheaper to buy on as needed basis. Even if it means a trip to the supply house. No chemicals stored in my truck, not worth it. Could you imagine what this stuff would do if it was to break out of packaging, in an accident.

                I sell Basement WatchDog battery back up pumps. One of the nice things about their batteries, is they ship them dry. Once the acid comes in contact with the lead it starts breaking down the lead and has a shelf life of 5 years. So when we sell a unit we unseal the battery and put the acid in. This way we know the battery is fresh.

                I have carried a spare battery and a box of acid on my truck for many years and never had this issue. I can only guess that with the hotter than normal days and the high humidity, it caused the bag of acid in the box to sweat, and that sweat can cause damage like it did to my poor threader.

                  Went to my favorite sewer cleaning and plumbing tool store today. Allan J Coleman of course.

                  I was dropping off some stuff and talked to Kirk and Marvin. I told Marvin about my Rothenburger woe's and he cheered me up with a very good quailty Ridgid 600 for a great price. I also had Kirk hook me up with some new cutters for my Eel Model N.

                  Now while there Kirk took me in the back to show me a bunch of the Ridgid SeeSnake Compacts he got in. He has them in color and black and white. If I had a use for one of these units I would be all over it. I will post a pick of my new Ridgid 600 later. Man I felt like a kid in a candy store there.
