Bought it from a guy on eBay named weiverind and I got a piece that was 1/4" x 10" x 10" High Density Fine Grade Graphite Plate. It came as advertised and I have a question for you guys/gals about the electrolysis process. being it's only 10x10 and my skillet probably goes down about 14". Would it be better have a piece of Graphite that was lets say 1/4" thick x 4" x 24"? or does that even matter?

That way it would cover the entire range of the skillet under water. Thanks

Mike

I would either cut it in half or thirds so that you have 2 or 3 strips 10 inches tall. That will give you total coverage of the piece you are cleaning.

Try just using it as is. No need to make it complicated. Concentrate more on creating/maintaining good connections to both pan and anode, and the rest will take care of itself.

Might be a stupid question how often or when do you all change out the water in the E-Tank? I've probably done about 30 pieces of CI in mine and it still seems to work fine.
