IF, and only IF your system has the demand, you would need to dose calcium (Kent Turbo Calcium is a good product to use), you would need to dose alkalinity (just buy Arm & Hammer baking soda), and you would need to dose magnesium (Epsom salts from your local drug store works fine). In my opinion, dosing any other chemicals is a waste of $$$.

This article goes into detail on 2-part dosing.
