BRS two-part dosing question

Being a professional, I agree sniperhawk. Amateurs are over rated.

I would concentrate on raising the alkalinity to at least 8. Remember, as we said as one goes up often one goes down. It's a balancing act where I recommend concentrating on alk first. If Mag is in parameters (which it seems it is) then you will be able to slowly climb both the other values. JMO

Which part and how much did you added? What test kit are you using?
