over a few days.
is now starting to be depleted as I'm getting a TDS
reading of 2, so I'll replace the resin before the next fill.
Have you tried daily PWC
's yet of 20% -25%. That combined with siphoning the cyano
might get you pretty close to where you want to be.
If my nitrates hit 50 i would have a heart attack and slam my tank to the ground, LOL! I am that frustrated. I was doing a 50% water change every other day for awhile my nitrates were 160+ at one time.
is is still saying 0 but I have a silicate reading of 2 coming out of mine. So I am replacing the DI
cartridge. I think I am also going to replace my RO
membrane as mine is a 100gpd and from what I have been reading the 75gpd takes out 8% more junk from your water. 100gpd is rated at 90% and the 75gpd is rated at 97%-98%. That will also help my DI
last longer. I have started doing 15g water changes twice a week since the algae bloom. I am hoping that once this new DI
cartridge gets here Tuesday that the algae will go away as the silicates are removed. I think I am going to do a big 25g water change on Thursday of next week. I will get DI
Tues make water Tues and Wed night run my airstones in the 5 jugs and then do water change on Thursday. If that does not help well the Chemi-Clean will.
