Not that I need anything just now, but I thought I would check prices since we were talking about this stuff on another forum last week.
I noticed that Greg Watson is out of stock right now, so just out of curiousity, I went looking around... (can you tell I am procrastinating about something else I SHOULD be doing
). His product listing there also didn't say if that was priced per pound or what. I assumed pound, as that's what Rob mentioned in one of his posts.
Anyway, I got to thinking as a fundraiser for the club, since it's something everyone needs, why not buy it in even greater bulk? Just a thought, I have no idea what shipping costs are, I haven't gone that far into investigations yet.
Did you know Sodium Thiosulfate was a chemical used in photo developing? You can buy it in 100 lb. drums from photo lab supply companies. Very pure lab quality too, I imagine. Kodak Sodium Thiosulphate, Pure Hypo --100 pound drum
It works out to $1.87/lb prior to shipping. I would not be surprised if this were how GW gets his supply.
If that's too much then Aquatic Eco-Systems
sells it in 50-lb buckets or 4-lb jars. They offer quantity discounts on more than 3 jars. 50 lbs. goes for $64 making it an even better deal than the photo lab stuff -- $1.28/lb.
