Hey guys/girls I am going to buy additives and chemicals here in England as they are cheap and very good quality. Now would I be allowed to bring it in my hold bag not hand luggage or will I have a problem?
Thanks

I think you would have a difficult experience trying to tell customs that the white powder is really Kalk.

Take lots of KY just in case...

But seriously, i wouldn't chance it. The additives in this country are cheap too, don't run the risk of a full cavity search just to save a couple of bucks.

As far as I know you're only allowed to take a max of 100ml of any liquid with you or something like that. Don't see the point of bringing in additives anyway...

Heard something like this as well. It's a recent thing. There are more specifications as to bringing in liquids. Something about the containers that it is in, but not sure.

100ml containers max in hand luggage, checked in luggage should not be a problem JUST PACK IT WELL. The customs guys will know what anything illegal looks like so you wont have a problem. I have brought SodiumTriPolyPhosphate in before for work(which is a white powder) Had no hassles.

But then as the guys say, stuff is cheap and decent in SA, also try Aquilibria

Dude, really. You might have crap with customs, and you might not.

I really wouldn't want to have to explain to a 7ft2" guy that i am bringing marine additives in. Its not worth the hassle of explaining.
