    So-I suck at math.I just emptied and cleaned the glass-it only holds 2 cups of water. The goo kit includes enough to refurbish a 250 OZ lamp. 20% goo to water ratio.If my lamp holds 2 cups that is 16 oz so this means I add 1/4 cup of goo to 3 cups water right?Duh. Thanks!Continue

    Century Problems: ALL of the wax floats

    Started by Austin Van Laar in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Austin Van Laar 17 hours ago. 14 Replies

    Hi! Recently I found a great vintage Lava Lite Century model, dated 1974. It has blue liquid with yellow wax and one serious flaw—all of the wax floats to the top and stays there. I know several lamps have the issue where some floats and some stays at the bottom, this one has zero wax at the bottom. The liquid is not cloudy at all, in fact it is clearer than any of my other vintage lamps. The wax was floating when I purchased it with kind of a disgusting granular looking appearance (but it was…Continue

Why is this happening? Thanks.Continue

    Ways to get water bubbles out of wax?

    Started by Fin Crowe in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Fin Crowe on Thursday. 2 Replies

    So, i have had Aeolus for a couple weeks now, and he has had water bubbles in his wax from the beginning (which was an issue i knew about before buying him). I have been trying to cycle him by using the following method:1. Leave it on until it is in full-flow.2. Turn off for about 5 minutes, or until all the wax has merged into a dome at the bottom, but isnt cooled off.3. Turn on again and make sure the bubbles at the top of the dome are popping or merging.4. Turn off again when the bubbles…Continue
