    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    it's been a while since I've brought Expanded Clay cant remember how many bags I got 6 years ago

    I have a standard IBC container I just got for another setup and I will be cutting the top off 300ml, how many bags 50L do you reckon I would need I'm guessing 5 bags to fill ?

    can any one let me know please.

    cheers

    An IBC type GB with 300mm media depth requires 7 bags. I'd cut the GB at about 330mm, to give yourself a bit of freeboard.

    No worries!...

    FYI: We are down to half a pallet, so if you want to secure them, then I'd suggest ordering the amount of bags you'll need through the online store, we'll hold them for you and you just need to bring a printed copy of the receipt with you when you come to pick them up. Cheers!
