Water Bridge

I was reading this article on how scientist made a bridge out of water, just liquid water, using a high voltage of electricity. They flipped the switch and the water from one glass(well i'm not sure what they put it in, i am assuming a glass beaker) over the very air between the beakers and into the other glass, held up by nothing at all. You won't be driving cars across this thing anytime soon, they biggest they could make it span was 25mm. Supposedly the current restructured the water molecules to create it. I do know they used DC current though. Also the bridge only last for 45 minutes, because of heat, which as the article states, it went from 20(degrees) C to more than 60(degrees)CQuoted from the article,http://www.physorg.com/news110191847.html)Upon investigating the phenomenon, the scientists found that water was being transported from one beaker to another, usually from the anode beaker to the cathode beaker. The cylindrical water bridge, with a diameter of 1-3 mm, could remain intact when the beakers were pulled apart at a distance of up to 25 mm.I'm not sure how much current was going threw them but I would be amazed and appreciate it if someone could find out, experimenting or however they could.

Water deionizer

Hi I was wondering if any one had a good idea of how to build a water deionizer.I'm just starting a car valeting business and need deionized water for final rinsing of cars to prevent water spots as we are in an ultra hard water area and normal rinsing leaves water spots no matter how well we chamois it. I have a 1000L IBC tank that we use to collect recycled and rain water which i want to use to rinse off the cars. As we are in a water controlled zone we have to recycle and filter our water and also it is a ultra hard water area the filters to deionize the water for rinsing cost around £90 plus postage and only last 10-15 cars which is to really killing our business. It is costing us around £9 a car to just rinse them and on a basic wash we only charge £10 which as you can see is not viable. Thanks in advance

White particles in water?

Ok, this is now driving me crazy. When I pour a glass (empty glass, no ice yet) of water (filtered, old filter) the water is clear. Pour over ice and big puffy white flakes appear. At first, I think that there must be crap in my ice. So I buy a silicone ice cube tray and use filtered water to make ice cubes. Second iteration: filtered water over filtered ice. Results: BIG FLUFFY WHITE FLAKES. So, that didn't work. My next thought was that maybe I messed up with the ice cubes. So, I switched to distilled water for the ice cubes. Third iteration: filtered water over distilled water ice cubes. Results: BIG FLUFFY WHITE FLAKES. Again I found myself with nasty debris floating in my water. What's next? Oh, maybe it's the detergent I used to wash my glasses. So, I wash a glass by hand with Dawn soap. Fourth iteration: filtered water over distilled water ice cubes. Results: you guessed it... BIG FLUFFY ****** WHITE FLAKES. Gotta say, it makes me want to pull out my hair! I just don't get it. So, here's my question: what's causing the white flakes? I read somewhere that cold temperatures can cause certain salts (not table salt) to precipitate out of solution. This can also be the case with Magnesium and Manganese. Does anyone else have a solution? I just want to drink some nice clear water. I thought for sure a Brita filter would do it for me.

Water Tunnel Testing

So, my measurements professor got us permission to fill and fire up the water tunnel in the measurements lab.For those that don't know, a water tunnel (like the one below), pumps water from one end of a tank to another. The water goes through a conditioning filter (to make the flow nice and even), and then it passes through a tunnel (that blueish area in the picture). You can then add dye or solids to the water to see how a fluid flows over the object.We're allowed to bring in one item (per person) to put through the tunnel. The tunnel is a little more than a foot wide. What would you like to see in there? After the lab, I'll post up pictures (and possibly video) :)Keep in mind that the object should be heavier than water (e.g. no balloons :P). See the photo results here!

Watch water resistance? Answered

I recently got a new watch for my 18th birthday. On the back of it, it said "5 ATM". I looked it up, and supposedly it should be water resistant to 50 meters or 165 feet. However, all places I went to online said to only have it around sinks, "slight splashes", shallow water, and to not use it for snorkeling. I live near the ocean and would most likely use it for that; not for any real diving though. Shouldn't a 50 meter tested watch be able to handle a few feet of water, or is it because it's saltwater that it would not be able to?

A water vapour fountain?

I´m just wondering if this is possible at all. If you use a sunoven you can concentrate sunlight, or a set of mirrors in the same way as those sun energy centrals the sunlight creates a hotspot. Or so I think. Could you then use a normal fountain like sprinkler to get water to that hotspot using a solarpump, a pump on solar energy. If the water goes through the hotspot would it then evaporate on place ? Or am I mistaken that the hotspot would not be in thin air ? Would it be possible to somehow create one then, and get something like that ?
