I am trying to get my nitrates to 0 and all I have is a 5 gallon bucket and one pump to mix with. What is the minimum time I can get by with on mixing. I normal mix for about 24 hours but I noticed after a few hours the water in the bucket is pretty clear. I'm using IO salt and distilled water.
Also could I get by with 4 gallons of tap water? I know I shouldn't but I have the last 4 gallons of distilled mixing and it will be tomorrow before I can.go buy more
