    no affiliation, just thought it might be useful.
    Think I might get a couple in the near future.

    Pretty cool, I've seen salt and water battery chargers as well. I didn't realize salt had so many uses.

    I saw this video, the guy said the parts cost about $50.00 (electrodes)
    Figured my time is worth $50.00/ hour easy.....

    Probably worth having one. Then again, we may have to decide what the highest and best use of salt may be.

    Salt is REALLY cheap and stores forever.

    Yea, and I have a pallet of 50# bags which is a ton in the barn. It's livestock salt, but it's salt.

    Hey guys - I'm looking at acquiring a chlorine production unit. I remember the CPU (Hadite links in OP above) but there was one other, which cost more, but had some attractive features and was a bit more refined/professional. [strike]For the life of me I can't recall the name of it though. Anyone?[/strike]

    NM, I found it, the MSR SE-200

    https://www.msrgear.com/se200

    Anyone own one of these, or have experience with them? How do they compare to the CPU?

    I just ordered SafeWaterInternationalMinistries (SWIM) Chlorine Producing Unit and the MSR SE200. I'll be comparing the two and posting observations. Probably about a week from now.

    Bleach is good, but liquid bleach loses about 50% of it's strength every 6 months.

    Calcium hypochlorite (swimming pool shock) also works, but it's terrible stuff to try to store. It off-gasses chlorine which wreaks havoc on tools, hardware, canned goods by attacking the iron (severe rust promoter). Learned that the hard way.

    Being able to store salt (NaCl) which is 100% stable and doesn't off-gas seems like a better way to go, and just make the bleach as needed.

    Just think of the ongoing value of this as a barter good or a good-will promoter when folks need it.
