    Hi Warr - yeah - I am also one of them. NSW - get it at the 2 Oceans. No complaints from using it..... Reason: It's much mroe convenient (already mixed ;-), it's cheaper - I can get 400 litres per week, at R130 per year. (400 litres x 52 weeks = 20800 litres).
    I live 20 km's away from the 2 Oceans - thus: 40 km's @ R2.72 (I think that this is the current going rate the government works on when calculating fuel refunds) = R110. Multiplied by once a month (12x) = R1320 + R130 = R1450 / 12 = R120 per month....

    OK now that I have cleared that up for myself - I wonder how much salt would cost me? How much does your salt work out for you per month?? I would LOVE to know.

    Please include the cost for actually going to buy the salt as well.

    Will work out to about R60/Liter for me :lol:

    Used to use Tropic Marine Pro Reef, but switched to Rio Real Ocean. No noticeable difference at about half the price.
