Dessicant chamber time?
    #3167154 - 09/22/04 11:28 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

    How quickly should one expect a dessicant to take do its job?  Got some epsom salts now, drying out a second flush.  First flush took something like 5 days to dry.  Granted, this second flush is better fan-dried, but, just wondering what others' experiences with dessicants was like.  Thanks!  GB  :grin:
