Where do you guys buy your geolite from? No hydroponics stores around me so im guessing i will probably have to order online.

A cheaper and supposively better alternative is hydroton. They have this at my hydro store, but you can get it online. I read another post that had a link for some place for fifteen dollars online. Do a search for it to find the link if your interested.

I also had trouble getting some geolite. I ended up going to a specialty hydroponics shop and getting hydroton. I think your best bet is to go to your local nursary and ask for expanded clay pellets. I'm pretty sure hydroton and geolite are just trade names.

good assumption, LECA was originaly developed as a light weight agregate for
concrete companies, a good idea would be to check with them to see if they can
obtain you some, the company I worked for tossed out a a few tons from time to
time, so getting it cheaply shouldnt be a problem

LECA = Light Expanded Clay Aggregate ???

So I guess I was right!!!

Hydroton/Geolite are trade names for LECA

Good call Pris! I didn't know concrete companies use this. I'm out in the country, and there's a very large concrete plant out here. They own a shit load of the land out here. You think they'd have LECA??? I just wonder how I would go about asking for some lol...

Yea, I remember that page, I think you linked me to it a couple days ago actually lol.  Anyway, what do you think would be the best approach at my local concrete facility?  Just knock on the door, hey you got any LECA??? lol :confused:

they may not have it as a normal stock, the company I worked for ordered it from
a manufacturer in Birmingham Alabama, I'm sure they could order it without any
problems, as for asking "I'm looking for a light weight expanded clay agregate,
you guys have any or can you obtain some"

Also check local LANDSCAPE aggregate supply places for pumice stone gravel. Sometimes they have it in stock & WAY CHEAP.

Here's a pic of that cement plant from Google. I'm not sure how old it is. They own a shit load of the land west of it, and have conveyer belts and shit that run under the roads taking rock or whatever they use there from their land. Notice the baseball fields west of it, they show how big the place really it... Pretty cool I thought:
