McCabe Water Level Indicator Paste

GENUINE McCabe Water Level Indicator Paste, Made in U.S.A.

For testing for the presence of water at the bottom of fuel storage tanks

McCabe Water Level Indicator Paste is used to gauge almost all petroleum products, but excluding ethanol-blended gasoline or other products that are blended with ethanol/alcohol, as they interfere with the normal reaction of the paste.

McCabe Water Level Indicator Paste [3.75 oz/106 g jars] is a green paste that turns pinkish/red when immersed in free water at the bottom of the tank (innage gauge), giving you a visual indication as to the depth of the water present.

Water can then be pumped out, and the test repeated until there is insufficient water to pump, at which point one of our Water-Seekers or Oilybits Water Absorbing Polymer can be used to absorb the last of it. To remove the bulk of the water we would first recommend pumping the water out with a simple self-priming waste oil/water pump, such as our Drill Powered, Flexible Impellor Pumps, or Mains Powered Flexible Impeller Pumps, and a length of Hose before using the absorbtion media as described above.

To Use:

  1. Spread a smooth, even coat of the product on the bob or gauging device where you anticipate free water to be present.
  2. Lower the gauging device through the petroleum product to the bottom of the tank.
  3. Leave for approximately ten seconds. If there is water present, the green paste will turn pinkish/red contrasting to the green color above the water level.
  4. When reading the results, please note a straight demarcation on the gauging device.

Storage / Lifespan:

  • Keep the caps tight to avoid moisture contamination.
  • Store between 50 – 85 degrees F.
  • No production / expiry dates are printed on the products or packaging.
  • Mccabe recommend a lifespan of 10 years if stored properly with lids securely tightened. Product can exceed this lifespan.

In both the Energy Institute’s HM-28 page 26 5.1.9.1 and the IFIA Bulletin, both recommend that ‘two’ different water finding pastes are ‘initially’ used, so you may wish to select another water finding paste to use in conjunction with this paste, from our selection HERE
