Well, it's story time again kids. I know some of you may have already heard this story before, but I thought I would orate it once more. You see, in researching plastic septic tanks and septic chambers the other day, I learned something very important about plastics.., specifically HDPE Plastics. (High Density PolyEthylene).-Besides offering the septic components made of black HDPE, this one particular company also offered "Fresh Water" storage tanks and paraphernalia. So, of course, I wander out into the weeds, so to speak, to go read about and look at that stuff. DID YOU KNOW?:The frosted, milky white plastic used in these Fresh Water Storage Tanks is the same HDPE used to make our Washer Reservoirs. It's been around for a long, long time. I learned that HDPE Plastics come in different colors...each color denotes certain tolerances of that particularly colored plastic. Well, the Frosted, Milky White HDPE has a heat tolerance of 120*F, above which, it will begin to turn clearish, then distort, then begin to slightly shrink, and then develop tiny little check marks which turn into gaping cracks. After going through all of that process, the plastic then brittles out.-Last spring I found the Holy Grail...a beautiful, supple, succulent 3431154 Reservoir at Newton's Garage in Cloverdale, Virginia. (3431154='70-'73 C Bodies). Even the metal bracket on it was still wrapped in the factory black paint. Needless to say, I got it home and set it on a red velvet draped pedestal in the front foyer, complete with accent lighting. About a month later, I decided to wash it real good and make it as pretty as it deserved to be. SOooo, I filled the kitchen sink with hot water and some Dawn detergent. I immersed the Reservoir in the hot, soapy water. After a couple of minutes, I began to notice that my bottle-brushing was really making a difference.., heck, I could see right through the plastic now! "Is that Right?", I thought to myself. NO, it was NOT RIGHT. It self destructed right before my eyes. THEE END. Pass it on.
