When I spoke of it being impermeable, I was mainly speaking about water not being able to pass through it easily. I will have to agree to disagree on this.

You are free to disagree with the definition of impermeable, but that won't change the meaning of the word.

Shoot....I guess I don't know what I'm talking about. Thanks for showing me the way. I thought you said PH was fine. What does that mean? Where are the numbers?

Like I said if you don't know what you are doing find someone in your area who does. Don't take advice from a homeowner or some dude at Lowes. Maybe check wikapedia, evrything on there is great info.

Did you check out Revive granuals?
