Yep, about 20% mix max, add the caustic to the water, wear rubber gloves and some saftey specs, it's nasty stuff do it in 20 second stages at a time and rinse in water after.

& do it outside as the gasses let off really stink & give you an instant banging headache. I'm impatient, so the warmer the water the faster the reaction :lol:

And watch the burn scene from 'Fight Club' first to remind you of the consequences if you get any on your skin.
