Sure it'll be packaged in the same containers as PHOSaR and PHOSaR HC, that's 1/2 gallon, 1 gallon and 2 gallon sizes.

In addition we'll offer a new product called PHOSaR PLUS that is a blend of our pelletized GFO and our new pelletized GAC.

Not that I am a fancy chemist or anything, but I have been using Eric's carbon for about 5 months now. I like it better than the Black Diamond carbon i was using before. Cleaner, nice pellet size, goes well in a reactor. Keeps the water clear and everything healthy and was reasonably priced.

Just my observation.

the 1 liter container is only $15.99...only a dollar more then the same sized kent carbon(atleast at our store).
kewl , very reasonable price :) .

yesterday i started using the Elos carbon, so far the carbon reminds me those chocolate sprinkles that you put on the ice cream :oops: and the baggie reminds me of my starbucks coffee package :p .
when i rinsed it .... i gotta say... wwouu no dust came out :shock: i was expecting some dust but nothing came out :confused:.
I'll be putting close attention on my tank :)

Thanks for the feed-back. I suspected it might be better but have none to look at or comapre.

There has been allot of stuff popping up lately on Elos products.

those chocolate sprinkles that you put on the ice cream

So do you mean it looks broken mechanical pencile lead ? Just less than 1 mm in diameter ? Or is it much biggert than that ? If so it is APC carbon and not designed for liquids but will still work. Sounds similar to the Kent crap but smaller in diameter ??

steam activated: Not chemical activation or washing with phosphoric acid, zinc or hydroxides

I see they are lost like most on the term "acid washed" or washing with phosphoric acid. Acid washing does not use any of these. Chemical activation yes. They alos have no data sheet so this stuff, which make me wonder, since they CLAIM to be so high tech in their products.
