Product Questions

I know you mentioned that once mixed "they will stay homogenous. No need to constantly mix or shake them"; however, how long will this mix be usable? Will it 'go stale/bad' around a certain amount of time after being mixed? IE, how long do I have after mixing the solution before I'll have to use it or throw it away and mix new solution?
Question by: Christopher on Jun 10, 2014 5:30:00 AM
Hi Christopher,
Assuming your using RO/DI water and haven't accidentally contaminated your solution (for example spilled something in it) it will basically last forever. It won't oxidize and being such a simple solution it doesn't have anything to react with to go stale.

I am about to start dosing with this kit. My mg ca and kh are all low. Should I start with magnesium before dosing the 2 part?
Question by: Nick on Jan 14, 2014 12:31:00 PM
Hey Nick,
That would be the best place to start.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jan 14, 2014 12:31:00 PM
In the instructions, what are you specifying when you refer to "household cups"?

Initially, I assumed you were referring to the unit of measurement "Cup," but inspecting the item list, it refers to the "household measuring cups" which are each 1/2 Cup in measurement.

So which is it? Cups or cups?
Question by: Michael on May 23, 2016 12:01:00 PM
Great question! We are referring to 1 cup, or 236ml.
Answer by: Carter (Admin) on May 25, 2016 4:31:00 PM
I was wondering if you have mixing instructions for your alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium supplements using weights (grams) instead of how many cups of the supplements to mix with the RO.

Weighing the powders instead of measuring in 'cups' just seems to be more exact.
(At least that's the way that I prefer.)

Thanks.

Allen
Question by: Allen on Jan 28, 2016 3:40:00 PM
Great question!
The weight by gram for Calcium will be 500 grams, for Soda Ash the weight will be 475 grams. This is the equivalent to the cup rating on the amounts. For Magnesium we recommend measuring out by cup instead as the weight of magnesium can vary greatly depending on moisture content. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 5, 2016 9:44:00 AM
Other alkalinity or calcium supplements include strontium, but yours appears that it doesn't.
Will I need to does strontium separately?

Thanks.

Question by: Allen on Jan 28, 2016 4:50:00 PM
Great question!
Ours will not contain the trace elements. Many individuals will add trace elements in separate forms when testing for the elements. Trace elements can also be added by larger water changes with a solid salt mix. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

How come you sell three jugs with this package but only two pumps to top them off with?
Question by: Daren on Aug 2, 2014 12:36:00 PM
HI Daren,
The magnesium goes down very slowly and is usually only dosed when you finish an entire gallon of calcium and alkalinity solutions. Considering for most folks this is a monthly occurrence at best, there isn't as much need for a dosing pump so people prefer to save the $80 but you can certainly pick a third up if you would like to automate that process. It can be found right here:

Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Aug 2, 2014 12:36:00 PM
How many gallons does the 1/2 gallon and 1 gallon kits make respectively? Trying to compare these to the pre-portioned starter kit which is listed as making 3 gallons of CA/ALK and 60oz MAG.
Question by: Rob Heilman on Apr 18, 2016 9:42:00 PM
Great question!
The 1/2 will have 8 cups of each element. This will make 4 gallons of Alkalinity, just under 4 gallons of Calcium and just under 2 gallons of Magnesium. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions. (the 1 gallon will make twice as much)
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 26, 2016 12:21:00 PM
how many time can you fill up the gallon jug with mixed solution with the 1/2 gallon kit?
Question by: josh on Mar 10, 2016 9:05:00 PM
Great question!
With 8 cups in 1/2 gallon you will be able to make 4 gallons of Calcium, 3 gallons of Alkalinity and 2 gallons of Magnesium. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 11, 2016 9:04:00 AM
Hi, should the alk and calcium be dosed in the same amount regardless what the levels are? Or should I simply use the calculator and dose each appropriately? Thanks
Question by: Mike c on Jul 11, 2016 5:21:00 PM
Hi Mike,
In a perfect world for every 1 mL of calcium dosed, you should dose 1 mL of alkalinity solution. However depending on your salt brand of choice, the specific corals you have, the levels you keep your tank at, and many other variables that may change the 1:1 ratio just slightly. You will want to monitor, and test your levels for the first few weeks of dosing and use our calculator to get the feel for the rate that your tank consumes each element. Most people find that it is not an exact 1:1 ratio, but is pretty close.
If you have any other questions just let us know. Thanks!

How many times would I be able to refill the jugs with each of these kits?
Question by: David on Apr 10, 2014 7:42:00 PM
HI David,
Its a bit different with each, but assuming the 1g kit (large kit) there is 16 cups in a gallon so thats about 6 gallons of calcium chloride, 8 of the alkalinity solution and 3 of the magnesium solution but youll have some dry reagent left over.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Apr 10, 2014 7:42:00 PM
hi, i have a 300 g. tank is soft coral dominant, which 2 part do i need and what going to be the dosing to start I have a dosing pump tank you very much
Question by: rey on Oct 21, 2013 3:20:00 PM
Hi Rey,
The only difference between the Large and small is basically the amount of material included with the package. The total package small would likely be plenty for your tank to start with as your consumption won't be as high with the soft coral tank.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Oct 21, 2013 3:20:00 PM
I am using the BRS 2-Part system with great success. I am also dosing Red Sea coral nutrition (A,B). I am considering adding Red Sea coral color (A,B,C,D). Would this dosing program be compatible? Would there be any double coverage that I should be concerned about.

I am monitoring water quality with Salifert and Hanna.

150gal, fish, sps: 1.025(Red Sea Coral Pro), dKH 7.8, Cal 420, Mag 1,400
Question by: Chris on Jan 27, 2014 1:39:00 AM
Hey Chris,
Thats not a problem at all. The only double coverage would be if you wanted to use the reef foundation ABC (as that is what the BRS two part basically is). The other components though (Coral Nutrition and Coral Color) don't overlap with the two part though.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jan 27, 2014 1:39:00 AM
is there a reason why you only get two pumps with the 2 part mix,I think theres three jugs????
Question by: fred on Dec 15, 2013 4:32:00 PM
Hi Fred,
The magnesium is dosed far less often (usually months apart) and in a large enough quantity (20oz) that its actually easier to pour the solution then use the pump :-)
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Dec 15, 2013 4:32:00 PM
When mixing your BRS 2 Part Calcium & Alkalinity Total Package, it states that I need to use filtered water for the calcium, magnesium and alkalinity but can I use R/O DI water for all 3 when mixing them up?
Question by: Sergei on Feb 4, 2014 2:02:00 AM
Hi Sergei,
RO/DI water definitely qualifies as filtered water so that is not a problem at all and really the best option.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Feb 4, 2014 2:02:00 AM
Does the BRS 2 Part Calc & Alk Bulk you sell settle and have to be mixed or stirred daily/weekly? I run a doser and wondering if this would work with out adding a stirrer. Thanks.
Question by: TW on Oct 2, 2013 4:10:00 AM
Hey there,
Once mixed up they will stay homogenous. No need to constantly mix or shake them (though it wont have any negative effect either).

  • Great product. By Mark on 9/12/2016

    Instructions made it easy to mix up and it works well.

    Just follow the directions and it does what's it supposed to do. Super easy to get the dosing dialed in.
  • Great product By Gerard on 7/11/2016

    Been using this for a few years now. Its a great price and worth the package you get new mixing containers every time to keep things fresh.
  • AWESOME! By Adestafi on 7/3/2016

    So easy to use! Just follow the directions and away you go
  • Easy to use By Mike on 5/20/2016

    Easy to mix and use. Found the online video a great help very much worth the time to watch.
  • A Good 2 Part Option By CD on 5/9/2016

    Easy to mix and use. Mixes up crystal clear.
    The calculators and videos on the website leave little room for making errors when using this product. I am happy with this 2 part and the price is very reasonable.

    The only negative with my order (not the actual 2 Part) that I can think of is that one of my mixing jugs arrived dented on one corner causing it to wobble. It's hardly a big deal since it isn't leaking. I am sure BRS would have taken care of it had I chosen to bother them with such a trivial matter.
  • Great Cheap 2-part By Chas on 4/18/2016

    Great inexpensive 2-part. Why waste your money on water? Also the only mag supplement where you know the amount of sulfate or chloride.
  • 2 Part Additives By Jeff on 4/11/2016

    This BRS 2 Part Kit works great. I use a doser and keeping alkalinity and calcium in check could not be easier.
  • Great additives By Erik on 3/29/2016

    Awesome additives, mixes very easy and easy to dose. Thanks!
  • Great 2 part solution By David on 3/27/2016
