[edit] Evaporation

Is the information given in this section accurate? It seems that 2/7 water will evaporate even if not in a murky pool in scorching temperatures. Tested with dug (not constructed) pool filled using dfhack liquids utility. It started off all 2s and 3s but quickly dropped to 1s and 2s. Repeating with initial 3s and 4s, 4s and 5s, 5s and 6s and then 6s and 7s produced similar results. Even a full set of 7s evaporates pretty quickly. Ptb ptb 10:48, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Evaporation based on surrounding temperature, so aboveground results may vary. The described evaporation applies in the standard underground temperature of 10015 °U . I came to this article looking for the exact time it takes for a 1/7 water to evaporate in that temperature, but information isn't available. Not to mention surrounding water seems to affect evaporation rate. Anyone know the details? - 07:20, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

[edit] Drinking salty water

Water laced with salt can be drank by very thirsty dwarfs, and will result in a "was forced to drink slime lately" message.--Auric 01:09, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Pumping not cleaning stagnant water

I seem to be having an issue that pumping stagnant water (from my stagnant brook) does not remove the stagnation. -- Zim 19:04, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

this happened to me only when pumped water touched stagnant water
anyway flowing water should clear stagnation now as of 0.34.09 http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=5232

[edit] screw pump don't desalinate water

I tried to desalinate water from ocean with screw pumps. But wheb I tried to make water source for my dwarves it was stil salt water. -- 10:02, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

(not sure if this is still true, my knowledge is a bit old) If desalinated water touches the ground in an area that naturally has salt water, it becomes salt water again. Try surrounding the water with constructed floors and walls. Calite 18:19, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
