Did I make a mistake with my Spectralock Pro?

Thanks to the forum here, I found a great price for a full unit of parts A and B of Spectralock Pro online. I ordered two full units, but didn't order the color powder (part C) because I found the mini packages of powder at my local Lowes at a great price and figured I would just use four of those.

When I looked at the Part C I bought I see it just says Spectralock, not Spectralock Pro. Is there a significant difference in Part C regular and Pro or can I use the mini's from Lowes?

Thanks in advance!

Patrick

SpectraLOCK Part C Powder

Yes, you can use the SpectraLOCK Part C powder from Lowes.

Just be sure to "watch your liquid to powder ratio" when you mix up the product ...!

You will use 4 of the Mini sized part C powders with each Full Unit set of liquids ...!

no real difference.
possibly a small thing, packaging, a filler or something.

Patrick - there has been some debate about differences in the liquid (I don't believe there are any), but not the solid - it is exactly the same material.

If you found a good deal at Lowe's be sure to get what you need now. I suspect they are dumping their inventory. Most Lowe's have dropped Spectralock.

From what I have heard, the pro has the chemical packets that you add to your water. The regular Spectralock doesn't.
