Product Questions

How many gallons of final product do you get from a one gallon size container? Is the suggested mix of two cups per gallon the max that will dissolve, or just the ideal amount? Can you mix it stronger if you want to change the ratio of alk to calc using a dual dosser with a single control for both?
Question by: Frank on Dec 10, 2013 3:54:00 AM
Hi Frank,
There is 16 cups in a gallon, so if you follow the recipe of 2 cups per gallon of solution it will make 8 gallons of solution.

The 2 cups is both near the maximums solubility and easy unit of measurement to measure. it it will match the dosage for calcium. If you alter the recipe its no longer going to conform to the calculator and the dosage will no longer match up with the calcium. You don't want to alter the ratio of calcium to alkalinity because corals always consume them in a fixed ratio that is the same ratio the solutions are mixed to (so if you mix them up correctly, you should always be dosing matched amounts of calcium and alkalinity solutions).

At the current recipe you could do as you say, control both on the same timer (because the dosages would be matched), if you alter the recipe or solutions that would no longer be possible.

do i need both sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate to dose for ALK?
Question by: Jose on Nov 13, 2013 1:17:00 AM
Hey Jose,
Just one or the other will do the trick as they both accomplish the same thing. The difference is that sodium bicarbonate will have a very slight pH lowering effect and sodium carbonate will have a small ph raising effect. If your pH is less then 8.4 normally, most folks go with the soda ash (sodium carbonate).

2 level dry measuring cups of soda ash is equivalent 2oz ?
Question by: Pham Anh Tuan on Jul 12, 2014 10:04:00 AM
Hi there,

There is 8 fluid ounces in a standard household measuring cup, so two cups would be equivalent to 16 fluid ounces. This would also be equivalent to about 473mL.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MIX SODA ASH

  1. 1 Standard 8 oz. dry measuring cup
  2. 1 Mixing spoon
  3. 1 Funnel
  4. 1 Empty 1 gallon jug

MIXING DIRECTIONS FOR 2 PART

  • Fill gallon jug 5/6 full with RO/DI or distilled water and pour into empty bucket/bowl.
  • While stirring water, add 2 level dry measuring cups of soda ash.
  • Once dissolved, use funnel to transfer solution to gallon jug.
  • Label Alkalinity and let sit before use.

NOTE: If you have difficulty dissolving alkalinity solution float the jug in a sink of hot water and shake vigorously. Alternatively, you can mix the solution in a large open top container to allow for stirring the solution.

    This soda ash desolved much better than drs foster, soda as can be a pain to mix, this mixed faster and cleaner than others ive tried
  • Definitely a fan By Damon on 6/10/2015

    This dissolves in the water very well. Easy to mix. Had to mark the jug appropriately for 4/5 gallon which is a strange amount... but still easy. Nice product.

    the two part dosing seems to work,I would recommend it!
  • Dosing Made Easy By Doug on 3/21/2015

    With the two part dosing system, keeping the calcium and alkalinity at the desired levels is quick and easy. Better overall health of the tank and occupants. Thanks BRS!
  • Works for me ! By Paul on 3/15/2015

    I have been dosing BRS 2 part for about 2 years now. Before that I had no luck with acros. They were alive but not growing. Dosing has opened up a whole new world for me. My systems thrive !
    I highly recommend BRS !
  • great stuff By chefmur on 12/2/2014

    been using BRS 2 part in my sps tank for years, love it, consistent and inexpensive.
  • Great product! By Davide on 11/21/2014

    This product is excellent. I use this with the BRS dosing pump system. My KH level stays consistent. This product is easy to mix and store as well.
  • dosing alkalinity easy By Mario on 6/9/2014

    Only way to go if you need to dose alkalinty in your tank. I warm up my water which made mixing a lot easier. Once it is all dissolved its crystal clear. Using BRS calculater makes dosing easy.
  • Good Stuff By Pat on 5/18/2014

    Works well at a good price. Have tried others but this is the best way to go for me.
