I think it's great that you never had an issue. I really wish I could say the same. I did mention in my original post that I was using ADA Aquasoil Amazonia II, which may be different, rather than the type I.
I've already explained my feelings toward the product, so I'm not going to beat a dead horse. Note though that several others have mentioned similar issues with Amazonia II, so I'm not alone here.
I'm not really sure why they messed with a good thing and made II.
I'd be pissed too.
I'm saying that the solution is to stick with type I.
I'm not sure about the new stuff, it's untested, I cannot say(no one can at this point), I fully believe and have no reason to doubt folks experiences with type II. I think the likelihood of a conspiracy there is nil.
Trying new stuff is good and teaches folks, but sometimes........I'd want $$ back and replacement of product myself. That seems fair. Something, toss me a bone, free shipping on type I, anything.
But to say, "ah, tough.............we sorry, but we are not going to do anything for you....." at the end of the day, that would chaff my hide.
I know.......had this done with other things in the hobby.
I did not let it go either, I'm an elephant there.
