Submitted by Buddy Braun on 01/11/2003. ( bbraun@mtco.com ) 207.179.193.105

I use Van Dyke's pickling crystals for my pickling solution.I was wondering if there was a way I could neutralize this so I could
dump it down my drain without worrying about it harming my pipes
or anything else . Thank You for any suggestions.

Basic Chemistry. Pour several boxes of baking soda into the concoction and the pH will raise toward 7 which is considered neutral.

It will not hurt to pour your acid down the drain. heck you can pour it straight down the drain without basification. Look at the crap that is rinsed down the drain daily. Easy Off Oven cleaner, Muratic acid for cleaning toilets. Look at what CLR cleaner had in it.

I dont think a little of our acid is going to do anything but clean the drains out.


Damage to drain pipes or Septic syatem?

This is a serious subject and one that the Taxidermy / Furrier industry should study and release findings for all concerned.

The main concern is what are you releasing into YOUR ground water or that of your neighbor. What are you sending to the sewer plant. Even if you have public sewer facilities, sending them toxic substances, or poisens is probably against the law and makes you subject to heavy fines.

Be sure you have Material Safety Data Sheets, (MSDS) on everything you use. This is for your own, and your families and workers health and well being protection. The MSDS should give you advice on the proper disposal methods. It is YOUR responsibility to have or get this MSDS. Keep them in a file or notebook that is readily available to all. In case of spill or acident,you need to be able to get to these MDSD's so you can find out the proper first aid recommendations and where to contact a 24 hour Emergancy phone number to get help.

Treat all wastes as if it were going into your own ground water where you get your drinking water.

If we can be of any assistance call SENTRY/Custom Services at 1-800-868-1454.... or E-Mail us at < sentry@ptd.net > God bless. Dave.
