[QUOTE="kdogg85"]First, why are you doing weekly pwc's? I do mine once every 2 weeks and don't have any troubles.

.....I'm sure that doing your pwc every couple of weeks is and would be just fine,.... I've just got in the habit of doing a smaller amount every week,...kinda gives me something to do on my days off.....and if I have to miss a week for one reason or another I don't think I'll worry too much about it.

I keep 20g of saltwater in a tub (covered) in the garage with a Maxijet 600 and a heater (set to 78F) going 24/7. About once every 6 months, I totally drain out the tub and clean out the "sludge" that has precipitated out or not dissolved. So in theory... some of that water I'm using is 6 months old. Never any problems with evaporation. Been doing it this way for 4+ years with no issues.
