Aqua soil


I will be going to LA. Maybe I will pick up a bag of aquasoil and bring it back to NY. Is is cheaper to buy it locally or through ADA website? Thanks.

I think its the same price, You save on the shipping price.
But you will get taxed on it i'm assuming buying locally in the store.

well you save 1/8% in sales tax out there and you get to rub aquasoil between your fingers on the flight home... that alone would be worth the trip for a true planted fanatic

you'd likely feel the ph between your fingers drop LOL..

haha, why would you guys commenting on CA thread? I probably will bring some manzanita back if I found what I need. I will check my bag, so the baggage handler will get some to rub their hand as well. Seriously, anybody know what the price in the store (around San Gabriel area)?

Bring me back 20 pounds of seriyu stones!

Do you think you can make it through customs? Then again, it's not an international flight, so you're good to go!

Not really free shipping.The shipping price was added to the total cost. I remembered it was around $29 dollars without shipping per 9L bag.

I've seen aquasoil go for around $35+. $35 for the old stuff and newer stuff is a bit more.
