    Is there anyone in Cape Town who is keen on getting in on a bulk buy of chemicals to make up RANDY'S 3 part KH, CA, MG supplements?

    The idea is that if we get at least 5 people, (two we have already Charl and myself) then cost would be R200 per person for 5 kgs of each (15kgs total) I have included a small amount for packaging. This is enough chemicals to make about 30 - 40 liters or supplements so its ALOT.

    Pakckages can be made smaller if we get enough people and then price would decrease.

    Let me know if you are interested,

    Hi David

    The plan is to buy the following from Protea Chemicals, all is Pharma grade

    Calcium Chloride Flakes
    Sodium Bicarbonate
    Magnesium Chloride

    Can also buy the Magnesium Sulfate, but so little is required. I have also read that you can leave this out. If one wanted to add this then I sould suggest just buying a small amount of Epson Salts from a Pick N Pay or Pharmacy.

    Can I add you to the list David?

    Ok, 4AGE is also in as well as he has a plus one.

    I get the goods early next week as they are not open on a Saturday,and will let you know when I have it.

    Charl how do you intend to get yours?

    If anyone else is interested I can get more or we can brake the quantities down smaller.

    R200 for 5kg of each is cheap. I paid double that from the chemical company up here.

    Hi Guys

    Yes this is going to happen, I just haven't had the cash to go and buy. Friday is payday and will make a plan to go and get then.

    At this stage we have the following guys interested

    4AGE X 2
    459B (David)
    Charl
    Kevinmac
    BrentV
    Mewik
    Myself

    So thats 8 guys, what I suggest is that I by a 25k of each and lets split it 8 ways which will amount to 3KGS each. Which will still be quite a bit of supplements.


    I will PM you guys once I have it and have prepacked the chemicals.

    Total per person would go down to R120 each.
