Default Egg Crates

Noticed a lot of members use Egg Crates in their sumps for separation, just wondering where you guys are buying them.

Located in Edmonton if I could purchase somewhere local but online works as well.

The only place I found was HomeDepot and a somewhat medium piece was close to $20, thought that was a bit pricey, or is that the typical cost?

Or if you have a similar alternative?

Thank you

$20 is about what it costs for a 2x4 sheet.

If you want fancy colours there are a couple online options, unfortunately most are in the US. The stuff isn’t cheap, I last purchased mine from Home Depot and it was around $20-$30. Alternatively, you can check out Lowe’s as they often have store discounts once in the door which may save you a little.

Home Depot
Crappy Tire

Price ranges from $7-30 per sheet

Always get plastic and as stated you can get multiple colours if so desired you can use scissors, hot wire or box cutters to shape as needed
