I want walmart prices. If sterilite manufactured a
bunch of this stuff it could be dirt cheap. its just
plastic boxes and stuff they could pump out by the
trillions. pumps and powerheads are cheap enough. but
when you see $250-300 for a device that does nothing
but control the on and off of powerheads to cycle
through them thats ridiculous. The same goes for
acrylic things like sumps and skimmers and calcium
reactors which could be made for pennies.
