    Colossus Lamps available!

    Found oozinggoo.com when I was looking for ways to repair the Grande I picked up at CostCo a few years ago.  It's one of the Chinese made ones that has gone extremely cloudy and ceased to flow (going to try replacing the fluid one of these weekends). It was here that I found out about really big Lava lamps.  I was bowled over by videos of the  Colossus lamps and really want to see if I could get one, I couldn't find them available anywhere so I wrote LavaLite.  I wanted to let this group know…Continue

    50th Anniv. globe cracked.

    Started by SpartyGalRN in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Carol on Sunday. 16 Replies

    I apologize if this has been posted before, I didn't really come across anything when I searched the site and I'm a newbie.So I broke down and bought a 52 oz. 50th Anniversary lava lamp from lavalamp.com. It shipped in a day and arrived in great condition aside from some was that rubbed off on the inside of the globe. I have it on a timer so I know that it only runs for 8 hours. I was really happy with it, it was clear and the flow was great. I have been running it everyday for a week. Today I…Continue
