if macerated 4 weeks to 6 weeks, if bugged maybe a week longer. have had a lot of them go 8 weeks til completely grease free, I tell my customers on average its 4 to 8 weeks and that usually covers it. my times may be longer than others because I keep them in til I think they are right. High quality is whats getting my customers from the other "boilers" in the area.

LOL...not here. They buy beetles and call me to borrow some of my "degreasing solution" cause theirs is not working. Then they get mites and lose the whole colony. lol

How much are you selling your "solution" for ?
You might want to make a video and sell it in a do it yourself kit!

Has anyone used sun to heat degreesing tanks?? This may sound stupid but what if u were to heat water in tank up and well for me in june though august it can be in mid 80s to mid 90s. Seems if u heated water up to say 125 insulated well and left outside in sun that Ot should keep it warm or least warm enough to degrees without and energy. Especially in some kind of metal tank. Downside is you don't have any control really but its free. This may be stupid idea anyone trued it?

heat is heat.....free is better. IF you can get the temps up enough and change the solution often enough to remove the grease from the tank why not? Nothing wrong with Solar.

Question.............If I just have a few bear skulls to degrease could I just soak them in coleman or laquer thinner (in the pole barn) in a closed 5 gallon pail.  I send my items out but sometiomes get a griz skull from alaska that needs degreasing and whitening.

Sure you could but I wouldn't. Ammonia would be my choice.

Im about to start building a tank with the water heater element and thermostat. My question for you guys is, of I end up unplugging and store the set up dry is it going to effect the element at all? I'm not sure if it's something that always needs to be submerged or not? By the way great thread and thanks for the help!

I never had an issue. They are only 10.00 and you might want to keep a spare. Might accidently plug one in by accident some day with no water in the tank. It could happen if there are too many plugs and somebody is trying to ask too many questions and you break concentration...lol
