Water changes will keep some parameters about equal to that of the salt you use, but eventually it will decrease over time. Most people use a two-part system, B-Ionic for example, and kalkwasser to maintain the desired level once reached.

Weekly PWC`s does it for me. What salt brand are you using? In Some brands PWC`s alone will not cut the mustard.
