    Did BRS ever decide to start carrying the 5 gallon option? I too currently get the Jarvovet 5 gallon jug from medvet. But for $87 dollars I can't beat that. I'd much rather support BRS and get the SpheraSorb from them. I'm pretty sure SpheraSorb ships in big vat containers to certain high demand wholesalers. I know that BRS does its best to sell at the lowest price it can considering the margins available. Its hard to be a middle guy re-seller of this stuff and make much of a profit margin.

    If one does the math it wouldn't make much sense for BRS to offer a 5 gallon bucket of sodalime when they currently sell it for $50 for a 1/4 of the amount that I currently get for $87. They'd simply be making less money and giving away more product for less. I think the chances of that happening are slim to none unfortunately.:(

    I am selling my 2 jumbo reactors, with dual solenoids and large container of scrubber material if anyone is interested. Chicago area preferred.

    I paid $2.55/lb of scrubber media including shipping @ medvet where BRS's cheapest price is $5.55/lb. I also would rather support BRS but the price difference is substantial

    This is what happened to my tank when I used used rebreather dive scrubber and a water filter cartridge housing.
