How much Hydroton for my PMP
    #2478268 - 03/27/04 04:44 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I'll be using a rubbermaid tub that has a size of 24"x17", how many pounds of hydroton (a geolite replacement) would I need to have 3-4 inches in this box? I'm thinking 20 pounds should do it but with no hydro shops in town I need to order from internet and would like to get it right the first time as shipping is expensive.

just goto lowes or home depot and pick up the 7 lb bags of lava stones for 4.00 they work just as well as hydrotron.

i paid $45 for a 45liter bag. it was plenty of geolite for my 122qt tub. the stuff i got was hydrokorrels. i think geolite, hydroton are all pretty much the same. i'm thinkin more is always better. u can always make another tub if need be.

I know a little about the PMP. PMP

Put about 4 inches of geolite, hydroton (exact same stuff as geolite), lava rock, then add about 3 to 3 1/2 inches of water. (or that's what I do).
