Did the trick, but it's far more than I needed By BBGoby on 3/9/2015
BBGoby would recommend this product to a friend
I got everything up to where it needs to be this weekend, particularly the ALK, from about 4-9 over about an eight hour period, and Mg from 1200-1350. Calcium was OK. Having done this, I can now I can add Kalkwasser in my ATO in an attempt to keep ALK in range. So all good, but for my 32G it's far more than I need so I've got a lot of Starter package left over. Too bad they don't have a nano version, or the like.
Great Starter Kit--improved with a Total Package Option By Stephen on 3/22/2014
Stephen would recommend this product to a friend
Another hit from BRS! This package, coupled with the videos and other instructions, is a terriffic way into the world of Kalkwasser.
One recommendation would be to offer a "total" package that includes the gallon jugs, the 1oz. dispensing pumps, and perhpas a 1 gallon mixing container. Secondly consider, placing the "You Will Also Need" segment from the printed instruction sheet under "Full Details."

I'm new to reefing. Bought this product based on the YouTube videos. After 3 weeks my tank looks much better. I currently have 1 frag of zoanthids and since I started dosing they look much healthier and have started to multiply.

Great value By Samuel on 1/3/2013

You really do get alot for what you pay for maybe to much(not a bad thing). The videos helped me out alot as I was new to dosing. Mixing each element was not as hard as I thought it would be either. This is an all around awesome package.
After I got all my parameters where I wanted them I didn't think I would need the alk or cal solution but after a few water changes I noticed my cal jumped up but my alk didn't. I had to stop using kalk for a little bit til my cal went back down and dosed only the alk solution to keep it stable.
This is an all around awesome package.

Great additives and at a great price as well. The sodium bicarbonate can be a pain to mix up, but it does it's job well.

I love how easy this kit makes dosing Kalc. I'm still a bit new to the hobby so anything that makes things simpler is great.
Good Value, Excessive 2 part By Shooterrick on 5/20/2012
Shooterrick would recommend this product to a friend
The product is a great value for the money. It is easy to use and my only critique is that there is a awful lot of 2 part Kh.CA, and Mg included for a starter kit. Luckily I find I like and will continue to use the product. Overall I would say buy it if you want to get into Kalk Dosing in a ATO.

This stuff is awesome. Started adding with my top off, have had massive growth with Lps and sps coral.
Too Much! By Thomas on 3/29/2012
Thomas would recommend this product to a friend
My only comment on this stuff is the sheer volume. I have been dosing the 2 part and Kalk for couple weeks and I have used very little of all the chemicals. Making a starter bundle w/ less volume may helped me determine what I needed and allowed me to buy fresh chemicals as needed. Although I am not positive I would assume there are some shelf life issues.

I recently began dosing with these chemicals and have been quite pleased with the results. The calculator on the BRS website gave me good measurements to achieve the results I was looking for and has been working quite well since I began the dosing. The products have dissolved nicely in my RO/DI water which tells me the quality is very high and for the price its a great deal.

This kit is awesome. Comes with everything I need for my dosing. And the kalk is perfect for my gravity fed slow drip ATO!
Volume vs Mass By Matt on 1/31/2012
Matt would recommend this product to a friend
Dry chemicals should be referred to in units of mass not volume. Really ?? You would like to dose 100 mL of dry CaOH?? Easy fix appreciated by people who like accurate label claims.

Great package for a great price. Along with the videos and easy to follow instructions within this site, these sups get your reef tank where they need to be and aids in the stability of your tank. Truly a must buy.

after watching a short how to video on BRS. dosing my tank just got easier and more reliable, isnt that what were all after... should come with bottles/pumps
Best reef supplement! By Adam on 10/20/2011

Kalk is the best! keeps the tank Calcium and Alkalinity stable, is easy to use with ATO and helps keep my low PH up! SPS Growth has rapidly accelerated
Solid Preforming Kit By Charles on 7/23/2011
Charles would recommend this product to a friend
the only reason i did not rate 5 stars is the kit does not contain magnesium cholride - only sulfate. magnesium mixing instrustions and video describe both so this is a bit confusing. outside of that it performs as described and when dosed in accordance with the calculator acheives the desired results.

lota stuff for a little money By Prattusa on 1/7/2011
Prattusa would recommend this product to a friend
I was very happy when I got this delivered. Now I can actually AFFORD my hobby (well, sorta!). I recently upgraded to a 210 gallon tank and man do I go through some chems or what?! These high quality chems as as good or better than the stuff you pay big bucks for in the stores and the BRS reff calculator is helpful. It would be nice if they printed some ratios on the products themselves, but it is not so hard to write that directly on the jugs once you mix it up.
