Gookits include a bottle of generic surfactant. I have a bottle of Triton X-100. Is this the same thing as in the Gookit? Am wondering if surfactant amounts mentioned in the thread below would be the same for Triton X-100. http://oozinggoo.ning.com/page/goo-kitsContinue
Hi....I recently bought a Hot Rocks lamp, blue with yellow goo. I have a persistent problem where about 1/3 of the goo stays at the top, even after cooling down. I've gone through the steps to recombine the goo twice so far (empty fluid, melt all the goo, stir to combine, cool) and the issue persists. Flow is slow but reasonable, with ping-pong ball lava flowing down from the top mass and up from the coil.Not knowing it's history, I have to presume the goo was overheated (fluid was cloudy,…Continue

Greetings! I've made some progress on my 4' tall tower lava lamp project. The base is done, glass vase obtained (nice thick walls), and coupling is done - very secure. I'm getting ready to mount the 200W spot light (on a dimmer - we will be going at this slowly) in the base and am looking for advice on space between the top of the bulb and the bottom of the glass floor. In my Magma 3' tower the space is less than 1/2", but that's a pro built lamp with the special low expansion glass, and…Continue

It's tragic, I first made a profile here forever ago, intending to dive right into the lava community after falling in love with my new neon pink Heritage Grande. Unfortunately, that lamp stopped flowing completely not long after I got it... I…Continue
