I like your idea Ed, but I'm waiting to hear what the experts say.  If they
say it would be mamoth, I'll try it to!  How about go even further.  Place
buckets that are one inch smaller than each other, ohhhh say 5 to 10 buckets
with salt water in each with connections like this.......connect these
buckets:  1+3+5+7+9  &  2+4+6+8+10.  Wouldn't this produce alot of surface
area in just the size of a 5 gallon bucket?
