Default Water Testing Paste

Has anybody used or tried the water testing paste, used in the petroleum industry, for testing for water in WVO?
Goes on yellow, turns pink in water.

If you can post a link or address where it can be purchased I will test it to see if it might be a useful addition to the "Vegoil toolbox".

I just got back from a 6000 mile trip. I haven't been near the internet for 2 weeks, I'll do some more checking. We used the paste to smear on depth sticks that were marked with lines to tell how much gas or diesel was in a tank of specific volumn. The paste would discolor according to the amount of water in the bottom of the tank.

Thanks...I will test it and try to find an online source.

I DID receive the pump Tigman. Exactly like the old more dependable Facets.
I wonder if someone bought the old Facet tooling?

Alskavegi et al: That water paste is available from many welding supply stores, as well as fuel delivery companies, but has been outlawed in some areas because of EPA concerns...at least in California.

Paste may not work for suspended water testing.

Excerpt from this link:
Quote:
Problems caused by this type of emulsion are often puzzling, as the emulsion is difficult to detect with water-finding paste. The paste does a good job of detecting free-standing water, but does not work well in showing an emulsion.
Since suspended water is a very low % emulsion of water/oil this paste might not work well. I still have to test it personally though. I tend to "have to" verify EVERYTHING myself.
