Salinity -- linear or not????
Mixed up a batch of salt water for the Sunday waterchange, and accidently added too much salt (specific gravity of 1.030).
I'm waiting for the RO
unit to kick out some more fresh water. Just wondering how much I'm going to need to dilute the salt water mix back down to 1.025.
Does specific gravity go up and down in a linear manner....
e.g. a 5 gallon bucket of water @ 1.030 added to 5 gal
water @ 1.000 -- would the new specific gravity (of the 10 gallons of water) be 1.015?
