Each bottle contains over 500 grams, enough for 6 (80 gram) solution mixes, each of which which should last for at least 2 year (so enough lye for at least 12 year)s; if our maintenance procedures are followed.
But you do not need to buy lye from us 🙂
FAQ: Where can I get Lye?
I purchase my lye in bulk with special order at my local hardware store. Lye used to be available in most grocery stores and hardware stores but police campaigning has mostly removed it from those sources (it’s used to make Meth).
Lye (aka NaOH, sodium hydroxide and caustic soda) can be purchased online in quantity and cheaper than we sell it.
Just order 99%+ pure lye online.
It does not need to be ‘food grade’ as nothing about the lye touches ‘food parts’. That’s for cleaning dairy pipes, etc.
99% pure is OK, food grade is just a bonus.
For Australian users I found the correct Lye which has no impurities added for cleaning drains and that is “Glitz” Caustic Soda and is readily available at “Bunnings ” Warehouse.
For the model EA-H160, you put in maximum 1 ounce (28 grams) of lye.
For the model AC50, 3 ounces is the MAXIMUM to put in the machine at one time.
It doesn’t matter how much water you use, it matters that there is no more than about 80 grams of lye in the machine.
We put in ‘extra’ because some gets lost during maintenance rinsing and a tiny bit in the outgoing gas (gets trapped in the Humidifier).
Too much lye can cause cloudiness or crystals in the sight tube.
