Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0927795A1] The economizer consists of a number of containers (1), each with a volume of 0.25 - 0.3 litres, molded from a rigid material and stackable by means of projecting base sections and a series of interlocking notches (7) and lugs (8). The lugs are shaped so they leave spaces in the notches for water to flow through when the containers are stacked. The base of each container has recesses (3) with graduated holes (10) and weights (4).
