Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I finally got a lamp larger than 14 inches! Woohoo! It looks great... Sort of. The water is slightly hazy but it seems to be settling down which is reassuring. Also, the water level seems to be a little low which I hate but it hasn't heated up yet so I'm not that annoyed by it.

Anyways, this thing is huge. I know I probably sound rediculous as many of you have grandes or even the colossus lamp, but remember I'm used to the 14.6 inch lamps. 

I'll keep this post updated if the lamp ever clears up. Hopefully it does because I love the colour and the size of the thing.

Your liquid is filled to the correct level and will clear up nicely.  nice color combo.  now you need to graduate to the next level  - may I suggest the 18''  rare 18'' 8050 Royale or even more rare the 18'' Double play which has lava in the middle and glitter floating around it.  Really cool lamps. The blue Royale is hard to find with clear liquid. Good luck and congratulations on your new upgrade.  

Thanks for the reassurance! So far I'm really liking this thing, especially the size. I never really noticed how small the 14.6 inch lamp really was until now!

Congrats on your lamp, royals and doubleplays are no longer made by the way. Get a grande, you will never look back!

Thanks! Cant wait to get a grande, however they're currently out of my lava lamp budget haha

I've got grandes and I really like them, but I like this size just as well.  The flow in the grandes tends to be better, but these have good flow too.  With these you can get more lamps for the cost and put them all around.

You can also look around on craigslist, facebook market, letgo, etc.

Here's a Grande for example

Wow! Thanks for the tip!

keith in my case since space is tight fewer but larger lamps work better. i use my grandes and royals daily.

If I had the money I would try to get some Colossus lamps (four? eight? ten?). Also more Grandes.  If my wife would let me move her decorations I would have these 52 ounce lamps and 32 ounce lamps all over the place.  If the smaller lamps had decent flow I might get a thousand of them, lol.

I like the quicker start up time of the 32 and 52 ounce lamps.  My Grandes take a long time to get going.

^^ I totally agree about startup times. The grandes take about 3.5 hours but I get home around 5:30 and they are starting to flow around 9'ish so i get about 2 hours of enjoyment before I hit the sack. Weekends I get full run time out of them.

Two grandes running is very enjoyable with lots to look at though.

My friend owed me a favor so he ordered me from walmart (lava lamp is out of stock) a grande pink wax purple liquid. I didn't go with yellow/purple because I find the the lava gets a little lost.

Lava lamp told me if i get a cloudy bottle to call them direct.

I should have it in a day or two, will post vidoes if I get lucky and it's clear. If not I can always just redo liquid with dist water and surf :)
