    AND

    For this weekend only we will be putting the previous version on special , infact all products from orca ( exept the new version 4 ) on a less 20 % special !

    So the 500ml cubes are going to be R359.95 - was R449.95
    And the 1liter is R638.00 - R798.95
    And as a added bonus - Free 50 liters R.O water this saterday and sunday !

    [​IMG]


    Just for kicks i have also taken a pic of the old and new...

    look closely at the difference sothat you are a informed buyer...


    The lables are the same , but the feel and shape have changed.

    The latest cube seems to be made up of granuals or 2mm sized chips reconstituted into iregular pieces.


    [​IMG]


    The older one seems allot less porus with at least on side been smooth, but over all almost seems extruded.


    [​IMG]


    So remember the 20% discounts and free R.O water starting on Saterday morning and ending on sunday at 1:00

    P.S remember the LPS that arived today !!

    Chat soon guys

    The ones I got a few weeks ago did not look like your V3. It was definitively not smooth and looked very much like your V4 pic. You sure you did not mix the 2 pics up?

    Hi Marius , I definitely didn't get the pics mixed , but i didn't say it was V3 either. ;)

    We were the first LFS in Cape Town who stocked Orca , so it could be V2.
    But Ive use the V3 and they are more porous that the one in the pic 2 , and in a fetta cheese block shape.
    These :new" ones are very irregular in shape ECT.

    In the top pic , there are two heaps - new on the left and old on the right.

    Tks
    David

    Got some of the V4 and there is a significant difference. Been wishing for some NO3 or PO4 to show up so i can chuck some in, but almost a year abd still nothing on the V1.
    Considering removing the V1 ans just running V4 to compare how long it lasts....
    Good prices david.
    Quite honestly, at that price i would grab V1 and wait a year for V4 to drop in price, lol.

    To my knowledge, the make up is not much different in terms of carbon source and ingredients. In essence, yes, a larger surface area is the most significant difference.
    This has a major impact on performanc though, not only due to the increased surface area available for biomass colonisation, but also a hugely increased expulsion potential.

    Would you need a reactor to use those or can you run it through a aqua clear
