Started using it with a BRS 2 part doser and couldn't be happier. Fantastic value without all the additional marketing premiums that get added onto the same stuff in a prettier package.

Maybe i'm the only one who was confused, but in case there are others out there who might benefit from this.
My confusion: The tutorial video told me to mix 2 cups of this soda ash with 1 gallon of filtered or RO/DI water, great. But then when I use the Reef Calculator and selected Dry Soda Ash, it said to use "... approx X tsp..." huh? confused.
I then called the customer service number below and asked for #2 technical support and guess who I got? Reid form all the videos, pleasantly surprised to get a familiar voice :-) He explained to me that after mixing 2 cups, what I end up with is "Recipe 1 Alkalinity Solution (Soda Ash)". So that's what I want to pick from the drop down on the reef calculator. This made a whole lot of sense now!
So e.g. in my case, I would "Need: 186.1 ml; 6.2 fl oz; 37.2 tsp" And with my doser which does about 1ml per minute, if I set it to do 1 min per hour, then 186 ml / 24 hours = ~7.75 days.

I was hesitant to do the mixing myself. This was easy to mix. Watch the video first and it helps make the mixing easier.

I use this product together with BRS sodium bicarbonate to help with keeping my ph stable. Works great and watching the demo videos explains the proper mixture.

Pure alkalinity, easy to use By Richard on 7/30/2011
Richard would recommend this product to a friend
This product mixes easily with low clumping, and the support from BRS makes it easy to make your solution and easy to dose using the Reef Calculator. My only comment is that the BRS soda ash is not as potent as raising pH as other sources I have tried. For most people thats a good thing, I could use a slightly stronger pH lift. But no matter, the price and value of this product are excellent.

Like with BRS's other additives, the volume savings and the quality of the product makes it a matter of common sense to use theirs. I was comfortable with the other ones but this does the exact same thing for less.

I use this solution to increase alkalinity in my 200 gallon system with a calcium reactor. I have trouble with p.h. and alkalinity levels. The sodium carbonate(soda ash) solution helps with both problems at the same time. Use the sodium bicarbonate for tanks with a higher p.h.

This additive is spot on, first time I used it I just followed the instructions on the reef calculator and my level was perfect. I would highly recommend this product to everyone.
Quick Dissolving, Easy Use By Matt on 3/2/2011

Title says it all. Be sure to have a slow dosing method with the alk solution to prevent precipitate. I use a large syringe on drip, but their dosing meter is a great value.
The price is killer for what you get!

Replace those expensive 2 part Ca / buffer systems with this and CaCl2 (instructions on BRS) and save $$$ while maintaining a healthy reef system

I used to use 2-part liquid solution by the gallon. Mixing your own is SUPER easy and far more economical. Not only that you get high quality stuff!

This product is easy to use and maintains the alkalinity of my tank. When you mix it you can do it in the gallon jug just fill your sink with hot water then put the jug with the solution in it to warm the water and it will dissolve easily.

This is also an excellent product and a great compliment to their calcium chloride. It mixes well and along with other factors helps buffer my system daily with ease. I would highly recommend the larger size for greatest savings!

This is the one you want to get for recipe 1. Instead of going through the hassle of baking you own, this stuff fits the bill and is real cheap at this quantity. It's clean, disolves easily and is hassle free. Going this way with the auto dosing pumps is the way to go and can toally replace a CO2 system, without the potential hassle of low pH problems, CO2 refills and expensive equipment with more maintenance involved.
To dissolve i just dump it all in at once and shake then float the jug in my sump. The little extra heat from the sump water warms it just enough to completely dissolve the powder, although i let it sit for a few hours before using. Definitely recommended.

I have been dosing Alkaline for a number of years now using the B-Ionic 2 part Brand, several months ago a friend of mine introduced me to the Bulk Soda Ash solution and explained just how easy it was to make your own 2 part dosing media using soda ash and calcium chloride.
This is a far superior product to B-Ionics Brand and at a significantly reduced price in comparison to how much dosing agent that you can make from one container of Soda Ash.
Thanks for providing such a great product Bulk Reef Supply.

I use this to make 2 part solution. It's much cheaper than buying pre-made solutions and easy to make yourself. I've been using it for a couple months now and my corals have been growing great!
