Honestly it just smelled like stagnant nasty pond water. It tasted even worse when i siphoned it out (believe me i wasnt trying to taste it). I siphoned it all out and i dont notice any weird smell at all now. I think i should have siphoned it out sooner.Some (more) thoughts:
1) Put a pinch of that brewer's yeast in a little water. Cap it. Leave it for a week. Open it and sniff. Is that the smell?
2) What is the smell, exactly, or what other yucky thing does it smell similar to? It might be something that someone can identify. (Y'all, don't give any hints or you'll bias the test ).
3) Is it possible that the water really isn't all that smelly? Those of us who hang out with a lot of animals all day might not even notice it. I just mucked out a barn and didn't notice the smell much at all because it is simply what I expected.
4) Since Aeromonas bacteria are found in all kinds of water (dirty, clean, chlorinated, saltwater, etc), and given that your egg crate setup is the most wicking-restant design possible, I wouldn't be too worried about that.
Damn that's fuckin funny! He's probably still shitting his guts out, and toughing out the cold sweats.
A little dirty water never hurt me. Im a hairy legged carpenter from Tx. Ive swam in horse tanks waaaay dirtier than that. Plus it boosts the ol immune system lol!Damn that's fuckin funny! He's probably still shitting his guts out, and toughing out the cold sweats.
Yo, Ryan - get a siphon, man. Take care of yourself. If you can't manage that you've got no business keeping animals.
Well, it's killed a shit-ton of people so don't push your luck. I've spent way too much time pissing out my ass on nasty toilets in the third world to fuck around with sketchy water any more. Amoebas are no joke. Ditto viruses.A little dirty water never hurt me.
