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.

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:

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.

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.

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).

  • 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.
  • easy to use By bilzrs on 7/20/2015

    easy to use and works great
  • Easy to use By Chavinpat on 6/11/2015

    This product is very easy to use. The instruction is easy to follow. There is also bulkreefsupply youtube channel with step-by-step video instruction.
  • Pretty darn good! By Steve on 6/11/2015

    All inclusive package for those two part needs!Will buy more!
  • great product By jason on 5/21/2015

    this product has made it much easier to maintain proper levels
  • Great purchase By Darryl on 4/29/2015

    Wow, great product Low price for the amount of material used. Three jugs to hold about three months of supply or more, and every thing I needed for the future gonna make a dripper dosing setup with the half gallon containers.
  • So easy - Wish i'd done this years ago By Keith on 4/16/2015

    Bulk reef supply makes dosing so incredibly easy, the hardest part about the entire process is testing the water, which isnt even that hard. Besides that the reef calculator works perfect. I was amazed at how accurate it was.
  • great buy By babnika on 4/16/2015

    Nice to have a few extra jugs premixed for fish sitter. Mixes verry well
  • Great 2 Part By Glenn on 4/13/2015

    Kit is great, with easy to follow instructions. Came with everything I needed to start manually dosing my tank.
  • Wow...Same Numbers as Yesterday!!! By Mikey Reefs It on 3/25/2015

    Let me just say what a relief it has been to get this stuff paired with my eshopps doser. After calculating tons of numbers before to now having the doser do it. ITS EXTREMELY ACCURATE!

    I am at a steady 8.008 ALK and 440 Ca.
  • Nice system By Greg on 3/24/2015

    This package is well equipped.
  • Wish I started this sooner By JonnyReefer on 3/19/2015

    I don't know why I was hesitant to dive into 2-part, but oh man, I wished I would of done it sooner. My problem of constantly low Alk is now a thing of the past. This is an essential and convenient set-up and for a good price. This should be most people's purchase right after tank essentials and a skimmer.
