How to rejuvenate a lead acid battery

This is an old trick, get some Potassium Permanganate KNO8, or Condies Crystals. make a 25% solution, and put about 50ml in each Cell., and put tops back on. Leave for a while and maybe even give the battery a shake. Then recharge, it will be just like new....

Bigger crystals will crystallized from purest material. You may be have purify KCl, use pure and filtered before using water/solvent, protect beaker or used vessel from air dust.

What are the downsides to bananas?

: Although bananas are a very healthy fruit, eating too many bananas can pose risk on your health:

Bananas contain a large amount of sugars, which is bad for your teeth.

Bananas contain a large amount of potassium (one banana has 25% of daily potassium requirements). Eating too much potassium can lead to hyperkalemia, a condition that makes you have diarrhea, loss of strength, nausea, and abnormal heart rhythm.

just moved into a house with this system but it has not been maintained...i purchased a 5 lb bottle of potassium permanganate but am unsure where to add it and if I need to dilute it...also do I need to run a cleaner through the system? I have a ton of rust coming through my pipes so I know the system needs help...

You will need to look around for a small tank (about the size of a 5 gallon bucket) that connects to the softener by a small tube, 3/8 tube maybe, if there is a small tank, and this system was neglected, it WILL have trace evidence of a dark brown almost black stain on and around the tank...if not...DO NOT pour any KmNo or Potassium Permanganate into the brine tank..either you or your service man will be using foul language if you do ! ;o

update us on your current position for further instructions !

Defective Ni-Cad Battery

Try Re-Conditioning the battery first. Full procedure at: ysuusy.com/easybatteryfix.html
"Cordless Power Tool Batteries and other batteries that contain Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) Cells can be Re-Conditioned to perform as well as new or even better than new. Proper maintenance after the procedure will insure years of usable life.
The First and most common procedure for Re-Conditioning a NiCd cell is by using a Technique called "VOLTAGE SURGING". Over time the crystals within a NiCd cell begin to combine and get larger. This causes them to loose capacitance and also break through the inner seals of the cell.

Surging the NiCd cell using a higher voltage causes the crystals within the NiCd cell to shatter and become smaller. These smaller crystals have a greater surface area and therefore contain a greater capacitance for energy. "
