Product Questions

I bought a large container of Sodium Bicarbonate by mistake, but decided to use it when my soda ash ran out. I have mixed four batches of top-off solution with the SB, and each time I cannot get the SB to dissolve. Most of the powder remains at the bottom of the bucket no matter how long or vigorously I mix it.

I use the following formula: 1 gal of RO/DI water and 15 oz of SB, which is the same ratio of water to SB given on your site.
I see on you site that it "Dissolves crystal clear".

So what am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

Hey there!
It sounds as if you are adding a little too much of the sodium bicarbonate there should be 1 1/4" cup of bicarbonate dry mixed in with the rest filled up with RO/DI water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Full Details

USING SODIUM BICARBONATE


Maintain alkalinity as part of the popular 2 Part solution or as a stand-alone alkalinity additive.


WHAT YOU NEED

  1. Standard 8 oz. measuring cup
  2. Tablespoon
  3. Mixing Spoon
  4. Empty 1 gallon jug
  5. Clean 1 gallon bucket or bowl
  6. Funnel
  7. RO/DI or distilled

MIXING DIRECTIONS

  • Fill gallon jug 4/5 full with RO/DI or distilled water and pour into empty bucket/bowl.
  • While stirring water, add 1 level dry measuring cup and 4 tbsp of Sodium Bicarbonate.
  • Once dissolved, use funnel to transfer solution to gallon jug. Fill remainder of jug with water.
  • Label Sodium Bicarbonate - Alkalinity and let sit before use.

NOTE: Mixing the sodium bicarbonate directly in the jug is more difficult to dissolve and may result in clumps forming at the bottom. If clumps occur warm the jug in a sink of hot water and shake vigorously.

  • Good for big increases By KerryF on 4/20/2016

    If your Alk is low and you need to raise up rather than maintain it, use this rather than soda ash.
    I used this in my saltwater mixing/storage tank that had precipitated down to 7.1 dkh. This raised the alk nicely to 9.0 with no change in PH.
  • Great Product By Brett on 3/6/2016

    BRS bulk supplements are absolutely wonderful. I use this one to counteract the PH raising of the sodium carbonate supplement
  • Great Stuff! By Ron C on 4/14/2015

    Works Great and dissolves completely. Another great BRS product! and it doesn't raise the PH
  • Great Product! By Bobby on 1/20/2013

    It does exactly what it's suppose to do at a good price.
  • Cheap and clean! By Casey on 10/30/2012

    I use the sodium bicarbonate opposed to sodium carbonate because it has a lower pH. I dose a lot of Ca(OH)2, so this product increases alkalinity, and stops the pH from increasing too much. Cheapest source of alkalinity out there!
  • Excellent Price/Product. By Gary on 8/17/2012

    Works well, and great price.
  • GREAT PRODUCT By Tristan on 5/20/2012

    This is a great product use it in amm of my aquariums
  • Why Waste Money on a Label? By Ricky on 5/12/2012

    Great product .... replaced my name-brand bicarbonate with this... easily 1/3-1/2 the price if not better .... you would be foolish not to make the switch. Why just spend money on a big brand when BRS products are all you need and then some for a fraction of the price.
