Thinking about ordering some Evolution Aqua K1 Media, is anyone interested in splitting the order. The price I got is 50lt $116 plus tax and shipping. I am located in GTA (Greater Toronto Area).

If you want to order the K1, you can get it from Fish Farm Supply in Ontario. It will save you in duty coming across the border. I had placed an order from the US and once it reached me, UPS had their hand out for another $80 for brokerage, duty, etc. Ryan put me in touch with one of their partners (FFS) who carry all of their products here in Canada. They matched the price as well.

Len, thanks for your input. I will definitely consider that.

You're welcome. I know the trouble I had when I ordered from Aguaticeco. They quoted the price for shipping after contacting UPS, then told me to ship it back for a refund when the quoted price was inaccurate, but still didn't refund everything. Ryan was great to deal with and put me in touch with the folks in Canada, but when I spoke with the woman at aquaticeco who did the refund, she had a nasty attitude. The other option you have is that if a supplier in the US will say on the shipping label that it is from the US (NOT ABROAD), then there will be no duty. If possible avoid UPS because they will want extra for bringing it across the border whereas with Fedex or USPS the price quoted is the price delivered.

My previous experience with UPS is the same like yours. UPS charged me more than the value of a replacement power cord for the GPS.

Coming back to subject. Have found another vendor who carrys Evolution Aqua products and is 75km from me but they only have 50lt and same price which is good. I think the price is driven by the manufacturer to some extent.

Poco....you’re the best man. I was just thinking about posting the same just last week.
Nobody sells it in smaller quantities, so 50 liter bag is way too much for me.
I called http://www.vandermeernursery.com/ and they have the K1 for $116. They are in Ajax so no need for shipping.
Let’s make this happen buddy.

If it's only us two...we have no choice but to go 25 liters ea. If you need more that's OK with me as well.
