    I really don't know, but it shouldn't be harmful.

    Some fantastically smart guy above said 2oz per gallon of 20 PPM colloidal silver works great. I'd believe him, he's brilliant.....:D

    I had forgotten about this. The vodka has worked relatively well for me the past 6 months, but basically just added some more time to the wicks. I should receive my colloidal silver today and will put that to work.

    Honestly, Wyatt, based on what my chemist buddy said, after a few hours you're getting little to no benefit from vodka or everclear in this application.....so, if your wicks are staying clean, it's a sign of a good environment overall.

    Hey, I'm not questioning the efficacy of that statement - I was just trying to make sure it's OK with the Avallo electronics. I would hate to have to replace all the fans and sensors in this cabinet so soon after purchasing it.

    I know that I've been running it in my Aristocrat for better than a year, with no issues.
