- Replenishes calcium & alkalinity
- Pre-measured pouches make mixing easy
- Everything you need for daily 2-part dosing
Each BRS Calcium & Alkalinity Starter Package includes one pouch of BRS Pharma Calcium Chloride & Pharma Soda Ash, and then a 1-gallon mix of Pharma Magnesium for 2-Part Maintenance.

When you are ready, use the BRS Reef Calculator to know exactly how much to dose!
BRS Calcium Liquid Solution - Fill one of the 1-gallon mixing jugs 4/5 full of RO/DI or distilled water and then add the entire contents of 1 pouch into the container. Secure the cap on the container and shake it for about 10 seconds to help start the dissolving process. Remove the cap and fill the container the rest of the way with RO/DI or distilled water. Give the container a few more shakes and then let it sit until all the salts have dissolved before use.
BRS Soda Ash Liquid Alkalinity - Fill one of the 1-gallon mixing jugs 4/5 full of RO/DI or distilled water and then add the entire contents of 1 pouch into the container. Secure the cap on the container and shake it for about 10 seconds to help start the dissolving process. Remove the cap and fill the container the rest of the way with RO/DI or distilled water. Give the container a few more shakes and then let it sit until all the salts have fully dissolved before use.
BRS Magnesium Mix Solution - Fill one of the 1-gallon mixing jugs 1/2 full of RO/DI or distilled water and then add the entire contents of the package into the container. Secure the cap on the container and shake it for about 10 seconds to help start the dissolving process. Remove the cap and fill the container the rest of the way with RO/DI or distilled water. Give the container a few more shakes and then let it sit until all the salts have fully dissolved before use.

A must have for first time dosers By Dee From Brooklyn on 6/3/2019Dee From Brooklyn would recommend this product to a friendThis kit had everything needed to set up your dosing. Even the bottles with squirt nozzles. Great value and easy to mix
works great By Cody on 10/6/2018Cody would recommend this product to a friendworks perfectly!
The Best on the Market! By Bobby M on 9/23/2018Bobby M would recommend this product to a friendI recommend this to everyone using two part!
Mixes clear and nothing settles at the bottom. Inexpensive and effective. I switched from B-ionic and works the same maybe better as I'm using less. I have a soon to be Acropora dominated 85 gallon. Everything is growing, coralline encrusting my rocks. I have a tank thread on R2R "85 Almost Cube". I will use BRS 2 Part exclusively. Watch my progress as proof.
Trying something new By Gerardo on 5/27/2018Gerardo would recommend this product to a friendGreat product! Keeps my parameters stable!
Overall good, A bit messy due to pump design By Will on 5/17/2018Will would recommend this product to a friendI like this package overall. It took some practice to figure out how to use the pumps without getting solution all over the place. The outlet needs to point down more so that it doesn't squirt out vertically. Also, the pumps do not offer much in fine control. After upgrading to a dosing pump system my frustration with the pumps has largely been reduced as I only use them occasionally now instead of daily.
The resulting solutions appear to work exactly as advertised and my tank is much happier as a result.
Trying something new By Gerardo on 5/12/2018Gerardo would recommend this product to a friendI just purchased this product and it's been great! My parameters stayed stable and the tank didn't resent the switch. Will keep using, thanks BRS! Works like they said with Red Sea products on the YouTube video.
Very happy with new product By Adele on 3/31/2018Adele would recommend this product to a friendThis 2 part kit is part of a new line of 2 part dosing offered at BRS and so far very impressed with the kit and the product.
Since this is my first go with a product I mix myself (used to use B-ionic) I went with the single portion bags. The compounds were very well packaged and the directions were simple and straightforward.
Here is where BRS really shines. Because they were transitioning from one product composition to the new “pharma grade”, when my order was shipped, apparently it could not be determined if I was given a bag of the old Magnesium mix or the new that I should have gotten. Since I didn’t know the difference I mixed up my Magnesium provided and went about my business. Next thing I know I get an email for and Order I didn’t place. “I’ve been Hacked!” Was my first thought, only to discover BRS found the possible error and had immediately shipped a pack of the new Magnesium at no charge. I look forward to using it when the other stuff is used up as it looks like it will be a little easier to mix up.
Side note, the jugs, cups and funnel are very nice and are very handy. Now I can dose just like Ryan in the BRS videos.
Pump Design By John on 3/30/2018John would recommend this product to a friendI find that the pump outlet is too horizontal. It would suit my needs better if it had more of a downward angle to the spout.
Was interested in your calcium chloride, soda ash and magnesium starter package. It says in the directions that it is used in a 1:1 ratio with one another but I don’t dose alkalinity as much as calcium. Is dosing these separately by themselves ok?
It is common to use 1:1 for most people but that is not always the case. If you have to dose more than one that would be just fine.
