Wrestlers: ASTROLUBE® escapes as people leave the pit. The more wrestlers, the more lube you need.
Clothing: Clothing absorbs ASTROLUBE® and leaves the pit with your contestants. We recommend contestants wear tight fitting swimwear as this reduces the required volume of ASTROLUBE®.
Splashing: Some splashing is unavoidable, but if your wrestlers get really rowdy, even 55 gallons may not last long.
Pit size or area: The size of your pit determines how much lube is needed to optimally fill it.
ASTROLUBE® depth: How deep do you want the lube? The pit certainly doesn’t need to be filled up as a little ASTROLUBE® goes a long way. We generally suggest 1/4 to 1/2 an inch of lube per square foot. It’t better to have deeper lube to start if you’re going to have more than 5 rounds of wrestlers, lots of splashing or absorbent clothing.
If you want 1/2 an inch of lube per square foot of pit area, the number of gallons you’ll need can be calculated by multiplying the total area of your pit by 0.3. For example, if your pit is 8×8 feet = 64×0.3 = 20 gallons. If you have fewer wrestlers and only need 1/4″, the total would be 10 gallons. ASTROLUBE® is supplied in containers that enable 10 gallons to be mixed at time, so you can certainly purchase more powder and make more as your event progresses, or have it for another party.
