All SW Ontario Canada - Soilmaster group buy??

Hi All
Well, I'm trying to get Soilmaster select charcoal but the manufacturer comes back and asks me how many tonne I want? OUCH, trying to find a beter way.

If you live in SW Ontario, and are considering switching to "Soilmaster select" CHARCOAL (black only) Let me know, Send me PM or leave a note here.
I live 1hr west of Toronto in Cambridge, ON. Figure on picking it up from my place to save alot on shipping.

At this point we'll try:
Round 1
give me an idea how many 50lb bags you would be interested in.
(keep in mind this stuff is light) I am looking at only 3-4 bags for a 180G
Basically, a bag in the US goes for about $17US, less than a 1/4 of the price you pay for the same volume of Eco-Complete(heavier) up here.

Round 2
I let everybody know whether it's possible, what the price is and how long it will take to get it in.

Round 3
Get a firm answer from everybody and I make the final call on whether it's worth ordering.

Looks like with no interest I'm going to bail on this idea. Now going to buy a bunch of bags of adsorbents from local industrial suppliers I have to see if I can find an alternate media.

Hey Shane

I live in Brampton as well. Just wondering if you had any luck with that Turface stuff?? Where did you pick it up from?

And if you do find some would you be interested in shipping a bag out to Saskatchewan?
