I have actually tested this myself on many occassions with Kent and C-Balance but not the ESV (not available here). If using only one part to augment one side of the equation it rarely works, it needs both. That aside, you'd need to add about 300 ml of part two for a proper balance with a 3 mEq/l alk
Personally I would use small amounts of CaCl
and just let the alk
fall a bit. Nothing wrong with NSW
levels. Your choice either way.
