It's every bit as sinister as colorism.

DK did not realize the extent to which there is a thriving shrimp underworld. Sure, she'd heard the accounts of the canister shrimp - plenty of 'em. She's personally seen the shrimp climb phenomenon - into the HOB where they set up offices.

But yesterday, while she was putting in a secondary spill tray under one of her sump basins, she had to take the sump basin all apart to place the tray. And she found an entire community, a ghetto, of underworld shrimp, secretly thriving under the most adverse conditions.

This gang was living off the output of her utility sink, where she dumps water testing chemicals, washes her hands and bleaches nets and containers, and sends the water down the drain...

...into the sump basin.

Where

they were all living, peacefully, but surreptitiously.

When you live in the underworld, you must be a survivor!

So... DK had to spring the $1.86 for the float ball, on her now weekly trip to Lowes (OK, maybe twice weekly, but, hey, after WF 3.0 at least it's not daily).

The rest of the parts she scrounged from her buckets and barrels o' stuff.

Made her a level indicator in her new industrial 55 gallon size of DKMSJ concentrate vat. She is lazy, so now can make DKMSJ only once a month or so.

You can't see it, but I assumed you'd figure it out: the float ball is at the end of the floating rod down in the barrel, when it sinks with the liquid level the rod length up top gets shorter. Eventually, DK will likely rig this up to even more goodness, but for now she will use her eyes. At least she doesn't have to undo the lever lock ring and pry off the lid to see the liquid level, for now...

Donna: Instead of this....



Have you ever tried these??



they are called snap grip clamps, they work well on things like that, and as an added bonus they can be released, rather than having to cut them, as you would have to cut the tie wraps......

Well, let's see. There were crystal reds, blue tigers, orange sakura, blue bees, a red tiger, and I forget what else in the ghetto grouping!

Got 'em.

Four sizes, two colors, even. (My smallest ones are all in use, presently.)

Just used some this morning, as a matter of fact.

Donna, have you ever thought about using your powers for good instead of evil?
