    Waste water into usable energy?

    Right, I got that part. You need other components like copper and zinc, but the constant changing of the salt is something we are throwing away anyway.

    Waste water into usable energy?

    I live by the ocean

    Well doggonnit, silly us! This whole time I thought people grew out corals from the ocean, maricultured them in a cleaner healthier system, fragged them, repeated this process multiple times, and then sold them to me, where I dipped and cleaned them, put them in my system and grew them out and...

    I live by the ocean

    ^^^^^ THIS! So true. If I lived on an island with the sea a foot away from my tank I'd still make my own water.
