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
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 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.

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).

  • A decent additive By Paul on 2/12/2016

    I purchased this kit after using ESV B-Ionic. Since you do have to mix it yourself it can be prone to some error, but should be negligible. I seem to have to use the same amount of this stuff as I did the B-ionic to keep my Parameters constant. One thing I did do though was purchase the Sodium Bicarbonate on the side so that i could control my PH better since it sits at around 8.4. One issue i have been having is that the cap of the jugs don't seem to close securely. I shake it up before and after I dose and it leaks.
  • Excellent product, one of easiest on the market. By Askthereefguy on 1/26/2016

    This is an excellent product, probably one of easiest on the market, not to mention, it's about bullet proof if used with the BRS calculator.
  • Works just like you think it should. By David on 1/18/2016

    Bought it to raise my water quality. Water frim LFS was low in Mg, Kh and Ca. So i ussed it to tet water to the specified seawater levels. So far so good. Was a little disappointed that for the 1/2 gallon pkg the Mg product requires just over half the pkg to make one gallon jug. So far I've used more Mg than Ca or Alk and now I'll need to buy more Mg additives to use rest of Ca and Kh products from the kit.
  • good deal By Peter Lomanto on 1/7/2016

    every thing i needed was included. using along with the directions on the containers and the on line calculator, you just can't miss..
    keep up the good work

  • BRS 2 part cal. and alk. total package-bulk By Chuck on 12/5/2015

    I like the unit very much. It has raised my cal. and alk. both. Good investment for me.
  • Awesome product By Portersreef on 11/24/2015

    Well I can say that with my doser this two part is super easy to mix and also stays very constant when in solution. Even the magnesium was very easily dissolved after I set it in some hot water for a bit.
  • Very good By Jose C. on 11/14/2015

    The two part dosing is a great product. Im still new to this and not used to it in my system, but so far so good. The stuff is easy to mix and instructions are pretty clear. Looking forward to start seeing progress in my corals. Thanks BRS........

    Has everything in it you need to get started with simple to follow instruction.
  • Easy and Effective By Matthew on 8/7/2015

    This is a great product. What makes it great is the ease of use by following the instructions and the fact that it comes with everything you need to mix. Combine that with a good video from BRS on youtube about mixing and dosing and the reef calculator....cannot mess it up.
