    Just ordered my first round of triton other method. I was hoping to just dose it right out of the bottles but they switched to the milk cartons is any one dosing directly out of the milk cartons.

    Honestly I can’t see that a single customer is happy with that change. I am considering going to the triton method and that is a real disappointment and is almost making me change my mind. It would be so much easier to dose from the bottles and just looks way more professional.

    Bottom line is they need to find other ways to cut cost like starting with whoever came up with that idea at triton.

    I was a little disappointed when they switch to the milk cartons. I haven't received mine yet so I don't know what the quality of the milk carton is but I'll probably just come up with a DIY container.

    Yeah, I will probably just use some voss water bottles like another member on here uses. Went by kroger but they only had the smaller size.

    Would have preferred this and just swap out bottles.

    I guess triton can always go to this next.

    Lot of reasons - energy effective both in storage, transport into production and transport out to consumer. Minimal waste and can be sorted as burnables - important in many northen countries that use distant heating of residences. Based mostly on renewable resources - low carbon dioxide footprints and so on. Very low plastic content.

    Ok. Whatever makes you sleep better at night. For everyone else it's crap.

    When do not use it - if the package its more important that the content.

    For me - the content and the philosophy is important and the fact that the company thinks about the environment is an extra plus.

    As I understand - You are not even using their products but You know for sure that its crap

    If so - do not use it - nobody force you to do that

    I have not yet get the new package but I´m going to make a thin hole in the package and dose directly from it. The square form makes it to be more compact in my sump cabinet

    It’s obvious you posted just to cause drama. Your reasoning is nonsense. Do you really think a leaky milk carton is more environmentally friendly. The only reason Triton changed the packaging was for their profit margin. They do not care the least bit about the environment. Once again greed is more important than the consumer. Lucky for them they have consumers like you that don’t know any better.

    Sincerely Daltrey

    And you are trolling down a company even if you do not use their products. Talk about drama - your surname must be Williams.

    [​IMG] I think kamilo beach, hi, Is more than enough reason for there to be less plastic in the world. I dont use triton, but made diy dosing containers for BRS 2 part that the pre measured size come in bags.

    Stay on topic and avoid personal attack or I will be forced to lock the thread. This is the only warning

    My son is always taking recyclables out of the trash behind me, that constant reminding has helped me to think twice. @Lasse you europeans have been at the forefront in renewables and energy for generations, its still
    an inconvenience for some here, a few more generations. I knew what the basis was for when I heard about the switch. My son also informed me that Paper is not the big concern (glut) its plastics. also that paper will return to the earth along with trees are renewable, we cut 1 we plant 1.

    Back on subject I plan on using triton or red sea soon and was thinking about this, I may have to reem the barb to fit the acrylic tube and just use the cartons. Just like a juice box!

    sorry mods I didn't see the post

    [​IMG]. I used photoshop to take 2 clipart pictures and layer them then printed with a label printer. These are temporary 3 water bottles. Will do something out of glass after my stand is complete.
