BRS TWO PART By jimmy on 12/15/2014jimmy would recommend this product to a friendI have been using BRS two part for a month now and it makes keeping up with CA. AK. and MAG. very easy .
Wonderful By Chris on 12/13/2014Chris would recommend this product to a friendEasy to use kit with clear instructions. Thoughtful additions include measuring flasks and a funnel. This is my third re-order of this kit and I have no need to look anywhere else.
Best on the market By Ryan on 12/10/2014Ryan would recommend this product to a friendI've bought the total kits twice now simply because it's the best price bar none. For what you get in the kit the value far exceeds any mixing headaches,etc. I combined the two-part dosing with some hospital peristaltic pumps to control rate. It works perfectly. Everything is stable, and that's the name of the game!
mixes easily By yummy on 12/7/2014yummy would recommend this product to a friendProduct mixes easier than expected. So far am very happy to make the switch from B-ionic.
Easy to use By matt on 12/5/2014matt would recommend this product to a friend2 part seems intimidating at first. But as soon as you read the directions, it all makes sense. Excellent quality, and fast shipping.
Best product on market By Thomas on 11/28/2014Thomas would recommend this product to a friendEasy to mix and dose. Instructions simple to follow and makes for easy control of calcium and alk on tank. Wish I had this product 8 years ago when I started
nothing compares By dolpator on 11/23/2014dolpator would recommend this product to a friendAfter making the decision to go 2 part over a calcium reactor. I am so happy with this product. The quality is top notch and is very consistent. Easy to mix and use, and does a great job keeping my parameters in check. Would recommend to friends and have recommended to many of my local reefers.
Great value By Arrick on 11/21/2014Arrick would recommend this product to a friendThe BRS two part system is the best value hands down. The quality of the additives is unparalleled and is a must have if you are serious about this hobby.
NOT A EASIER SOLUTION TO DOSE 2 PART By RICK on 11/14/2014RICK would recommend this product to a friendBEING A BEGINNER, HAD A FEW QUESTIONS CUSTOMER SERVICE IS TOP NOTCH, THANKS CHAD
Great stuff! By Mike on 10/29/2014Mike would recommend this product to a friendIve been using this for some time now. I wont use anything else. Very easy to use and mix.
Easy to use, great system, great value By Santo on 10/6/2014Santo would recommend this product to a friendI have been with freshwater planted tanks for a long time. Finally, I started my reef tank, this system made it easy to setup and dose. It seems easier than my freshwater tank with discus!
Good stuff!! By Keith on 9/10/2014Keith would recommend this product to a friendThe product works great with the calculator. My corals are looking better everyday and I've only been using it over a week. The only problem I had was not reading the directions correctly for the Mag. You MUST add the powder before the water. I got used to the other mixtures and kinda went the same routine. I had to order more of the Mag Chlor and it cost me half the price as the whole kit with the shipping charge. Read the directions and you'll be happy.

How many times would I be able to refill the jugs with each of these kits?
Bulk Reef Supply 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.

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.
Bulk Reef Supply 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).

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
Bulk Reef Supply 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.

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?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Nick,
That would be the best place to start.

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.

Bulk Reef Supply 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.
by Christopher on June 10, 2014, @5:30 AM
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?
Bulk Reef Supply 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.
by Sergei on February 4, 2014, @2:02 AM
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?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Sergei,
RO/DI water definitely qualifies as filtered water so that is not a problem at all and really the best option.
by fred on December 15, 2013, @4:32 PM
is there a reason why you only get two pumps with the 2 part mix,I think theres three jugs????
Bulk Reef Supply 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 :-)
Use the BRS Reef Calculator to calculate dosage amounts. For more information on how to use the 2 Part Solution click here.
