Hi Ray...they are not the same thing, pumice would make a very effective bio media as long as it is not placed in a pressurized system as it would just break down there.

I enquired on it recently and it is very difficult to source....think it is perfect for a bakkie shower type environment

@OomPieter,
I have a 2000 lt open up flow bio,finding good media at a reasonable price is a BIG problem !

Thx for the responses!
