Changed cartridges in the RO/DI filter yesterday. Everything but the membrane. TDS reading was "0" but it was taking forever to fill a gallon jug. I thought there might be a clog somewhere along the line. Upon looking at the pressure gauge I found it to be reading extremely low while operating. So I have a new pressure Gauge on order from BRS. Here's hoping it corrects the problem or I might have to contact BRS about the new pump they sent me last month.

Added an additional 6.5 oz. Liquid Soda Ash again to Raise levels from 7.1dKH to 10dKH. Now let's see how long this lasts. I just don't get it.

added 6.5 oz. alk again. This time it bottomed out at 6.5dKh prior to me making adjustments to the dosing pump (now 4ml 6 times a day as opposed to 3ml)

Did water change and ran tests in order to get numbers where I want them. Had to add 6.5 oz. alkalinity in order yo do that. Yeah, it was down to 6.8dkh.

Added 3 oz. alk to raise #?s a tad. Measured at 8.2 prior to the addition. Calcium is now holding at 450! Yippee!!

FINALLY! Nitrates are down to 12! That' the lowest ever in my tank. Thank you carbon reactor. :) I REALLY wish I'd have gone that route years ago. But once again... If I knew then what I know now..

Added 4 oz. Calcium and 4 oz. Alkalinity to raise levels more. Calcium was 418 but I wanted to boost it just a bit more. Alk was 7.5 and needed a boost. I'll check it again tomorrow to see if further adjustment is necessary.

Added 15.5 oz. Calcium Chloride in an attempt to raise Calcium levels. I tested and for some reason they had lowered (again) to 300 this time. I also added 6 oz. Alkalinity for the same reason. Will retest again tomorrow.
