So I have two 52oz Lavaworld lava lamps that don't work properly.
Lamp number one is a pink/yellow lamp. It's clear and I love the colour, but it is also one of the ones with a defective coil that doesn't flow at all.
Lamp number two is a black/clear lamp. It was on display at the Spencer's that I worked at for long, long before I (or any of my co-workers) worked there. So it has been on for 12 hours a day for at least two years. It flows perfectly (in fact, it has a better "personality" than any of my other lamps), but it is extremely cloudy from a combination of being on for so long and stupid customers manhandling it. I do not have the base for this lamp as it was thrown out when our store closed, but that's all right because I have other lamps.
I was thinking I'd just open up the black one, drain it, and steal the coil from it to put in the pink one, but then I noticed that after leaving it off for three days, it has gotten a lot clearer. I mean, it still looks terrible, but now I'm starting to think that maybe I could save it. But I really, really like the pink one. But the black one is neat too. :(
Who do I save? Which one would be easier to save? Is there a way I could fix both of them?
(PS: I am not going to buy a $80 filter pump. I can't afford it. I'd probably just try a combination of cycling it and pouring it through Brita water filters or something.)
