You’re pulling a toilet, and but first you need to get that last bit of water out of it.  Traditionally you might suck it out with a turkey baster or absorb it with a sponge, but next time you might want to try LiquiLock.  A one-tablespoon packet will solidify the remaining water into a non-toxic gel.

LiquiLock is a recycled material that absorbs 500 times its weight in water.  You turn off the water supply and flush the toilet, holding the handle to get as much water as you can out of the tank.  Then just empty a single LiquiLock packet into the water that’s left in the bowl.  A few minutes after it comes in contact with the water, it forms a solid gel.

If you need to re-use the toilet, reinstall it and completely refill it.  When you flush, the additional water turns the gel back into a liquid that can be flushed.

You can try a single-use packet for $2.50, or get ten packets of LiquiLock for $20.

    How much is needed to turn a swimming pool into Jello?

    Sucking water from a toilet? I thought that was what wet/dry vacs where for.

    For smaller quantites some magic supply stores also stock water absorbent.

    If you want to turn that pool into jello
    http://www.watersorb.com/index.html

    230 bucks for 55lbs
    depending on the size of the pool, 3-5 should do the trick. Although they would probably never talk to you again, if you only dropped one in.
    I wouldn’t even want to think of how much a hassle that would be to clean up.

    worked really well in my bosses coffee.

    thinking about the pool jello stunt…..something i would probably do too, but what if someone dove in head first into this stuff, I see them getting stuck and suffocating.. Might be like getting stuck upside down in deep powder snow. You can not move in that stuff.

  8. Adon says:

    That’s a good idea. I worked on a project where a special cart was made for transporting toilets and would catch the water. This seems much simpler.

    This stuff is a superabsorbent polymer – sodium polyacrylate, or something similar. It’s used in disposable diapers and feminine hygiene products, and if you mix it into soil, it’ll hold rainwater and let it out again when the soil gets dry. Any place that sells a decent range of gardening products will probably have it, these days.

    You can also buy one or another superabsorbent polymer as novelty “instant snow” powder.
