VOSS Water Bottle Dosers

Anyone using the plastic VOSS bottles that are now available in lieu of the glass? Obviously the glass is significantly heavier and more stable and likely easier to clean. Just curious as our local stores do not carry the glass versions. Any downside or concerns I should be considering when using plastic. It is obviously food grade so not worried about that.

And I use plastic cereal containers I got from wallyworld. They fit perfectly where I need them and hold ~ 1 3/4g so I only have to fill them every couple months.

Our hospital drs lounge Voss water in the glass containers flows heavy, I hate throwing those things away so I usually just go for cup and tap routine.

Now I might steal some now that you’ve given me an idea what to do with them!

Any other ideas what to do with these?

I got mine at Wallyworld for $2.75 each for the 800ml glass bottles. Got the acrylic tubing and mur-lok push connect bulkhead st brs. Cost me a full $7 per dosing container. My issue was room. I have 4Ē between my sump and ATO container and the voss bottles fit perfect.
