   I use the red silicone gasket making material with a square strip
of `scotch brite' abrasive pad sticking out at the bottom of the tube,
to allow the water to wick out.  I cut the strip 1/4 by 1/4 by 3
inches long, and after the silicone is totally set I cut the
scotch brite strip off flush. I use the thick industrial
kind of abrasive pads from W.W. Grainger.
