    Water levels are 100% accurate and inexpensive.

    Well if you use one over several hundred miles, the curvature of the earth/gravity might come into play...........

    You need to talk watts. Then take the mass of eletrons transfered over a specific time. They do have a mass. (I got 99% on AP Physic exam in HS)

    But that is DC. You run AC/DC

    If that's the case, then your place would have collapsed years ago under the weight of all those electrons you paid the power company to pump into the place.

    So if you really did so good in physics, you should have been able to come up with the answer.

    AC/DC you ass . nothing transfered in mass at all. Even DC electron mass would go to ground, back to earth

    The electrons go back and forth, AC current.

    WHO gave You an electrician license? Gomer or Goober?

    Are you one connection short, of a full circuit? Or just a short circuit?

    Actually, amperage is a measurement of electron flow. Voltage is the amount of pressure.

    Watts is electron flow. W= V X I

    But they still go through the circuit, and according to YOU....

    They have mass.


    So, Mr "I got a 99% in physics".... if electrons have mass, how can they weigh nothing? WHO gave you your physics test? Mr. Magoo? Gilligan?

    Watts is power consumed. Amperage is electron flow.

    Stop trying to Google your way to wisdom.

    Electron flow is part of the mathematical formula to figure out wattage but strictly speaking, electron flow is measured in amps. Technically, you are 100% wrong and I challenge you to a debate over it.

    Others are big contraptions like moonshine stills which you have to light a fire underneath, but in a SHTF world in a city making fire might not be easy.

    Lots of good ideas here in the thread....Check YouTube for how to get water out of your water heater.

    Nothing's more important than water. Could it be worth it for you to become a volunteer fireman? Seriously. They have access to lots of good clean water. Plus they'd probably have your back if looters tried to burn your house down.

    Fill some 5 gallon food grade buckets and store throughout your apartment.

    Get yourself a Berkey and some Life straws.

    Save all seltzer and soda bottles. Refill them and squirrel them away.
