        ¹ Compared with dissolving PVA in motionless water in an improvised container
        ² Times may differ and increase this range depending on the size and density of the support structure
        ³ PVA is a biodegradable material. In most cases the water can be disposed of down the drain, providing the waste water distribution network is connected to a wastewater treatment plant. We recommend you check local regulations for more guidance
