Electrolysis of sodium chloride is suppost to make sodium chlorate but its not working for me. I mixed 1 gallon of salt with 5 gallons of hot water then used a 12 volt car battery charger and carbon rods to electrolysis for 7 days. Water volume has gone down and there was a lot of white crystals on the side of the 5 gallon plastic bucket. I stired all the crystals into the water then sprayed and poured the liquid on weeds and grass but not much happened. What am I doing wrong? I use to have factory made sodium chlorate it will kill everything even trees, 1 cup in 5 gallons of water would kill anything. I have a fence row full of weeds, brush, small trees that all need to be dead. I already spent a ton of money on Weed b Gone, brush killer and 2.4-D. Some weeds have died but most of this stuff is not effected by this type weed killer.
