Assuming its safe, would you vape through anything other than water if it offered some benefit?

  1. Yes, this sounds cool.

    Funny you mention silver. In the rez on my water cooled pc I use something called a Kill Coil. Its a sliver of silver .999 used to prevent bacteria from forming in my loop. Im pretty sure you could just drop one of these bad boys in the downstem of your pipe. Just to be clear a Kill Coil is nothing more than pure silver.

    http://www.amazon.com/Silver-Coils-Antimicrobial-999-Strip/dp/B00A66HMRC

    Edit: If you swallow a Kill Coil or any piece of Silver seek medical attention immediately. In no way am I responsible for you swallowing a Kill Coil.
    Ingestion hazards: moderately toxic. May cause stomach discomfort, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and narcosis. Aspiration of material into lungs if swallowed or if vomiting occurs can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal.

    I thought about that too, however id be concerned about potential health effects. That stuff was never meant to be ingested by Humans in any way.

    @Vitolo im looking at having a glass artist incorporate a piece of solid silver into the glass. Ill keep you updated.

    Are we looking at the same thing? A kill coil is nothing more than pure silver, no added chemicals.

    I think it could work if a person puts the silver coil in a large glass water container, and then pours from that the amount needed for their water piece.

    The water needs to be in continuous contact with the silver to get the antibacterial qualities working IIRC.

    Change daily and don't leave it in a nice piece unless you like scrubbing. I like this stuff but it does get funky fast at least for me.

    Really got an understanding of how awesome this stuff is. I recently bought a new piece and I have used cranberry through it ever since getting it ( of course it was totally clean when received). After about a month there is NO buildup of any kind. Usually there would be some kind of visible buildup.. Nope. Nothing. And I never would have discovered all this without FC. to say there is a treasure trove of information on this forum would be an understatement :)

    silver? why not just add collodial silver to your water? silver suspended in mineral water... I'll be it a little excessive. but its an idea!

    I used silver hydrosol and it worked very well, but its really expensive. Nascent iodine continues to be the best solution I can find so far. Its inexpensive and 1 drop works for at least 150 ml of fluid, maybe more.

    Make sure it's not the one with alcohol in it. I made that mistake.

    Hey everyone I just joined and can now finally thank you. I have been reading on here for a couple months and been using cranberry extract with great success for combustion and just recently picked up a E-nano and D020 and it is still like new. Thank you!

    she got RW KNUDSEN cause its what we have here in dinky ville. its strait juice concentrate.

    a few drops in the C2 ratchet recycler with lower than normal level for "recycle action" has this puppy roaring with the lotus.... does an increase in juice help stacking even more or is there a certain limitation?

    plus it seems to be cleaning it even more.

    bawler!

    now my rigs match my favorite juice!

    You start to taste and smell the CE after a point which limits how much I add. Even in my larger EFS piece I only use 3 drops at most.

    Edit: yea you said concentrate and not extract.

    I'm assuming you got this?

    http://www.rwknudsenfamily.com/products/concentrates/cranberry

    That's not what you need. You want an extract, not a juice concentrate.

    :doh:

    the moment I saw where you said extract I knew I had the wrong stuff..... it still seems to aid stacking and ironically it collects the bits that make it through the screen of the lotus off the glass... turned the water pink.... damnit why cant I imagine its extract instead:bang:

    drawingboard hear I come...

    in my wifes defense she did call to ask if I wanted the extract in pill or liquid form.... aparently the clerk was a dumbass... and I was tooo excited....

    now im gonna go drink my bong water in shame. :disgust:
