Draining a Colossus

Because these globes are so heavy when filled. I used to use a flexible hose and siphon fluid the into a series of used distilled water containers in order to empty it. The process took almost an hour and usually made a mess. Last night we had a plumbing disaster at midnight and the cold water valve on the washer connection exploded and flooded the laundry room.I cannot wait to move.It seems  that every weekend there is a new issue to address and wasting my weekend from the shotty workmanship…See More

Thx mate.  I’m blowin away by the fact it’s possible to make our own lava lamps! Iv got a 27 liter glass jar I’m keen to set up. But something tells me it’s not going to be that easy. I better start small. I’m just cruising around the forums but haven’t landed at a place to start yet. I’ll buy a goo kit from magma towers I guess. Well thx for the welcome. If you have any tips I’m all ears open. Thanks mate

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena000@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.Frank
