Silver Water       

     How to build a simple colloidal silver maker. 

Three ( 3 ) nine volt batteries.  Buy some now, or scrounge them later from your smoke alarms. You can always put them back..  If you don't have three alarms, borrow  from a neighbor. You can trade silver water for the use of them. With smoke alarms, test the batteries before removing them; just press the button and listen for the beep.
Two electrical wires, 16" long (or so) You can cut these from a lamp cord if you have to (unplug first).
Two or more paper clips
                                                   Two or more alligator clips would be nice, but not necessary.
                                                   Tape.  Also, two rubber bands, if you have them
                                                   12" (1 foot) of fine silver wire, either .999 or .9999

Assembling  the battery pack:

  Tape the three (3) nine volt batteries together in series like this: [][][] .  This triples the rated voltage to 27 volts.
  To do this, place batteries with their terminals in the following pattern:

                                   x   o--x               ( x = positive o = negative) 
                                  o--x   o

In other words: just line them up all the same, then reverse the middle one, and tape them together.

The "x"es are the POSITIVE terminals and the "o" 's are the NEGATIVE.   The bold ones are where you  will later connect the wire leads.  The teminals connected in the drawing by dash lines are the ones you connect together with paper clips.

With batteries tightly taped together (2 wraps max.), fasten the two paper clips over the terminals (connected  in the drawing by the dashes ( --- )).   The terminals marked in bold are left unconnected for now. Be sure the clips touch only the terminals in drawing.  (taping them down will help keep them in line).

Assembling the eletrode leads:

Strip an inch of insulation from both ends of the 16" two wire lead.  (Two separate wires will work).

Cut 12" fine silver wire electrode in half (2 six inch pieces), make a shepherd's crook in one end of each rod   and wrap the exposed end of each wire to it's own rod (or whatever silver implement you can find).  You can use either tape or rubber bands to tie it on.  No soldering is needed, just make sure the wire ends touch the ends of the silver rod. 

At other end of each wire, fasten two alligator clips.  If you don't have alligator clips, you can substitute paper clips or just wrap the free ends of the wires to the battery pack terminals, using tape or rubber bands to hold  them on.

With one wire attached to each of the terminals (labeled in bold above) , you are ready to make silver water.

Using the unit:

To make colloidal sliver, place electrodes (ideally) in steam distilled water (glass container, tinted if storing for any length of time), and fasten the other end of each wire to their respective terminals on the battery pack.  For quick stuff, add 3 or 4 grains of  salt and brew for about 5-10 minutes.  For long stuff, heat water (not so hot that you can't hold the jar), put in  electrodes for 40 minutes or so--without salt this time. ( In either case only the silver rods should be in the water. You don't want colloidal copper or aluminum.)   If you don't see the clouds of silver sintering off one of the rods, add two grains of salt and keep going.  When  finished, disconnect from battery pack, clean rods with NON metallic cloth or pad (Scotchbrite works), and store in a bag somewhere. If batteries were scrounged from smoke alarms, now's the time to put them back.  What you do with this stuff is up to you.  Someone may try to sell you a "better" unit.  It's your money.

Disclaimer:  Colloidal silver is being used for cleansing dialysis machines of blood-born germs, so it must be harmless to people.  However, no claims, expressed or implied, governing the use or alleged benefits of colloidal silver are made here.
