resistencia de agua
Explanation:
http://home.earthlink.net/~jimlux/hv/rwater.htm
"The quest for inexpensive resistors that can handle high voltages and energies leads to what are known as “water resistors”.A water resistor is essentially a tube filled with a salt solution and an electrode at each end. You can control the concentration of the salt to control the resistance, for a given size tube."

agree  Hector Aires: Mejor resistencias electrolíticas pues no contienen agua pura sino un electrolito. Sal digamos.
