    Triton X-100 vs. kit surfactant

    Started by J Monroe in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Claude J yesterday. 3 Replies

    Gookits include a bottle of generic surfactant.  I have a bottle of Triton X-100.  Is this the same thing as in the Gookit?   Am wondering if surfactant amounts mentioned in the thread below would be the same for Triton X-100.  http://oozinggoo.ning.com/page/goo-kitsContinue

    Advice: Should I replace my goo?

    Started by Jim K in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Claude J on Sunday. 3 Replies

    Hi....I recently bought a Hot Rocks lamp, blue with yellow goo.  I have a persistent problem where about 1/3 of the goo stays at the top, even after cooling down. I've gone through the steps to recombine the goo twice so far  (empty fluid, melt all the goo, stir to combine, cool) and the issue persists.  Flow is slow but  reasonable, with ping-pong ball lava flowing down from the top mass and up from the coil.Not knowing it's history, I have to presume the goo was overheated (fluid was cloudy,…Continue

    Question regarding Basic Retro lamp formula with Perc.

    Started by Paul in Problems & Questions. Last reply by bob on Sunday. 11 Replies

    Hello.  A question to anyone who can shed some light on this.  I have been trying to make my first lamp using the Basic Retro lamp formula.  After several days of tinkering I finally got it to work,... for a while.  After the second time I ran it, (never for more than a few hours) it stopped flowing altogether.  Reading many of the posts I came upon one which sounded authoritative that stated outright that PERC lamps will only work for a days or two.  Is that the case?  Have others managed to…Continue

    It's tragic, I first made a profile here forever ago, intending to dive right into the lava community after falling in love with my new neon pink Heritage Grande. Unfortunately, that lamp stopped flowing completely not long after I got it... I…
