I have 6 newer lamps 17 inch. 7 70s lamps 5 are 52oz ones. And i was thinking of buying ome of those huge Grande lamps.. but reviews of this lamp seem pretty bad.
cloudy water and so forth i imagine from shipping so ill ship it via amazon prime so i should get it in 2 days to minimize that.. But other reviews mention the dye in the water always disapears after a few months and the lava stops flowing after like 9 moths.
Seems pretty crappy for near 100$... What are your guys experiences ?
Ya i bought a 72 century and it was the yellow liquid green wax.. And it had a crap ton of powder on the bottom of it that was mixing eith the wax making it ugly.. So i flipped the wax upside down.. Then poped the top and stuck a shishkabob with a loop inside and scraped thin layers off the bottom to keep the powder out..
Ran the lamp few time did that like two more times.. most of the white powder is gone now and the wax looks better... But i had to toss the towel i used lol it smelled soo horrid.. Also the 60-70s lamos used a chemical thay was so toxic it could kill you from just a teespoon if you ingested it.. I know in the 80s i believe it was banned and thats probsbly why the wax and liquid was changed.. not because they were cheaping out but i think because it was too toxic to use for households.
the old 70s ect wax doesnt work with current fluid.. or vice versa..
what about it ?
the answer to your statement
Also the 60-70s lamps used a chemical that was so toxic it could kill you from just a teaspoon if you ingested it.. I know in the 80s i believe it was banned and that's probably why the wax and liquid was changed.. not because they were cheaping out but i think because it was too toxic to use for households.

well claudej I got ny replacement 100w bulb but this bulb is 1.4 to half an inch shorter then the ones supplied by lava light..
Weird man... I put it in the lamp which i alreader shortened the stem on.. and the bulb is sitting and inch lower then what it originally was when it was above the rim... And surpisingly this lamp heated up and ran just as quickly as the lamps that i lowered only half an inch.
So i think ima lower the other two lamps stems another half an inch.. If thr bulb diesnt need to be so high them i guess it should be lowered as low as poasible to keep the wax from burning on the bottom
